Home Decor: Using What you Have

It really is amazing what you can find in your own house or garage that can be used for home decor. Look around your home with a creative mind - could that stool or bench be used for something else? Could that dusty old shelf in the basement be revived with a fresh coat of paint? I have started doing this lately and I can't believe some of the stuff I have found. Jars make pretty vases, old art becomes new in a freshly painted frame. Before you go out and buy something new, take a look around and see if there is a different possibility right under your nose.

Jars make great vases and containers.

A chair becomes a side table.

A flag is displayed as fun wall art.

An old stool doubles as a entry-way table.
