Repurposed Glass Jars or Vases

I found this idea on Pinterest. Just take an old clear vase or mason jars and paint them with glue and food coloring in any color desired. Since clear vases cost less to buy than colored ones it can be an economical project. you might even have one or two around the house. And most people already have glue and food coloring on hand. love this idea.

swing set trellis

My older sister had used our childhood swing set for her kids and after they out grew it, she had a porch swing hung on it. After the porch swing was destroyed in a bad storm, she just wanted it out of her yard, tired of mowing around it and trimming under it. I sweet talked my husband into bringing it home.

Repurpose A Refrigerator

Take an old refrigerator and turn it into an ice chest and place it on your patio to serve cold drinks to guests. I love this idea.
