    imatellmuva is my name and re-purposing is my game!

    A few of the things I have done:

    To dress up the inside of the doors to my bedroom, I used table runners. They lend a nice look, and help to set off the room.

    I have a wrought iron umbrella stand that was missing the insert to hold the umbrellas. I inverted the stand and added a square slab of marble, it's now a table.

    I use decorative baskets and trays to adorn my walls.

    The end tables I had in my living room, looked better in my bedroom, and are now bedside tables.

    I converted the closet in my guest bedroom into an entertainment center. This was a space saver.

    My chest of drawers I moved into the hall. There's an alcove, that the dresser fits perfectly in. I use it to store linen.

    I've done plenty more...this is a topic that I love...obviously!
