Taking Something Old and Making it New
Repurposing an item is done by modifying it to fit a new use, or by using the item as is in a new way. The folks at diyncrafts.com curated a list of 100 beautifully repurposed items for inspiration.
At the library we were inspired to try repurposing household items:
