Old sewing table to kitchen island

Hanna is very creative! She was in need of a bit more counter space in her kitchen, so what does a creative person like Hanna do? She makes space! She says "This is one of my favorite pieces of furniture in my house. I made it out of an old sewing machine table, purchased at the DI for $6.00...One of my favorite things about the table. It has a secret compartment on top, where I store all of the sharp knifes in my house. Isn't it FAB?" We certainly think so Hanna great work! gorgfabgoodies

Mirror to Serving Tray

We have seen alot of old mirrors turned into chalkboards to hang on the wall. But never one quite like this. Yes it hangs on the wall but it doesn't end there. The mirror really finds its usefulness when you use it like a serving tray. Great job Michael from inspiredbycharm

Desk and Mirrors

Sometimes a project involves more than one piece, as was the case for Mandi. She picked up this classic looking desk for only $5 and collected several frames. With a ton of hard work and a new acid glazing technique she came up with this wonderful finished project! Each piece is unique and together they form one awesome project! Keep up the great work Mandi! See how she did it @ vintage revivals

Vintage Book Planter

Lindy was inspired by what some other people had turned old books into. She found that you could use them to make everything including photo frames, but she wanted something different, something that gave new life to something old. What better way than to add a plant! Great idea Lindy, we can't wait to try this ourselves! keep up the great work. Cottage Hill

Storage Bench

Kammy is in the business of buying old beat up furniture, redoing them and turning a profit on Craigslist. She says "The thing with redoing furniture is you always have lots of stuff to choose from if you get tired of what's in your house!  I found the bench in Goodwill for $15.  About 5 times more than I like to pay for furniture!  But I haven't come across very many of these, so I snatched it up."

And she did just that, we wonder is she was surprised with the outcome as we were ! Awesome job Laura! She just how she did it at her place laura thoughts

Recycled Phone Book

When we first got word of this project we were quite intrigued. What could someone possible recycle a Phone book into? Other than using it as a stool, a car booster seat, or a fire starter we could think of no other use. Leave it up to the awesomely creative people at chica and jo to make a fun and useful project that anyone can do. We can't wait to try it ourselves! Any one else have a re-use for old phone books? Be sure to send it in!

Phone Chair

Andy writes " Here she is in her sad sorry state, even a little more worse for the wear after our flood last march than when I originally dragged her home from the side of the road a year or so ago.  But I LOVED her shape, and knew she had potential."
"Some new fabric, a little makeover all around, and I am in LOVE with this seat now. "
