The free dictionary defines re-purposing as:
I love to re-purpose things.
Its ultimately satisfying knowing that you gave something a new lease on life. Its also a great way to recycle.
I tend to re-purpose old holey t'shirts into scarves, have made bags out of coffee sacks and the very simple idea of using glass jars to store items like pinenuts etc, but there are lots of ways you can re-use broken or no longer wanted items. Below are some of my favourite ideas, taken from my favourite craft site Craftster, and Instructables:
Side cabinet to kitty litter holder- see the cat door to the right
Books turned into a bookshelf
Drawers into shelving
And probably my all time favourite: Kodachrome curtains
