Aside from Ryan Gosling spoon feeding me Nutella there's nothing more exciting than when someone breathes new life into an old, perhaps unused piece of furniture.
Hand-me-downs, you're latest garage sale find, even that broken chair you found by the side of the road--with just a little imagination and some DIY elbow grease they can be transformed into beautiful and functional pieces for your home.
A case in point is how my hubby and I once converted an old beat up TV stand into a craft hutch.
I can't tell you enough how handy that thing has been in organizing my life!
Needless to say, I was over the moon when I was recently asked by Hometalk to curate a board of some radical re-do's for their upcoming newsletter. So before you throw out Grandma Pearl's old curio cabinet take a cue from these creative peeps and turn something ordinary into something extraordinary!

I've been doing some serious Craig's List stalking ever since I stumbled upon this
vintage stereo re-do from City Farmhouse. I'm head over heels in love with it AND
the cherry on top is it only cost her $10.00.
How AUH-MAZING is this kitchen banquette? Can you believe it was once a tv armoire?
A "built-in" for half the cost!
Thanks to some defect we have extra crib parts lying around our basement and I've been contemplating for over a year on what to do with them. This fabulous crib bench has given me a lot of inspiration.
Cue Stevie Wonder now. Isn't she lovvvelly?
This repurposed entertainment center is off the charts adorable!
What little tyke wouldn't love their very own kitchen?
