This dollhouse is actually a reused bookcase. It would look pretty reused as a bookcase for books and storage in a little girls room. The furniture and dolls could be stored away in nice wicker baskets right on the bookcase when it isn't used for a dollhouse. The shelves appear to be large enough to hold a full size barbie doll. It is being sold on Ebay for over $1000.00 dollars. I think most people could do this themselves rather than pay that steep of a price.
This is a set of floral lights made by repurposing egg cartons that I found on Pinterest. I am sure it could also be done with the styrofoam egg cartons too; however, you would need to be careful how you painted them. I spray painted some styrofoam once and it melted.
Jessica Kirkland at Pen N' Paperflowers reused a Budweiser display stand and created a bakery cart/wagon. I was given a very heavy wood crate used for shipping machinery parts. I went to Harbor Freight and got the last four decorative wooden wheels that they had left (originally priced at $20.00 each but I got them for $6.00 each.) I took left over outdoor paint from Sherwin Williams (awesome paint), and mixed the paint equally with water because I wanted the wood grain to show through on my cart. I then added a handle made out of wood we had left over from another project. I used it in my yard during the fall, as part of the display I make each year for my church's fall festival, and then it came back into my yard as a Christmas display.
had a picture of the recycled glass jars with a simple pink flower in some of them as seen in the picture, which inspired me to try this project myself. I thought it looked simple enough but very pretty and a good way to recycle old glass jars. Indulgy has many many pictures of recycled glass jars with a link for each picture. Only use the website with Mozilla Firefox rather than Internet Explorer, or you will get thrown into a long waiting loop.
I provided additional websites in the Finds section under 6/25/12 that provide tutorials on how they did their painted glass jars. I used a little bit of information from most of the websites such as adding fingernail polish to thin out waterbased acrylic paints.
