Utilitarian chic

by Jourdan Fairchild in


I’ve always admired those crafty people who can look at a random item/piece of equipment/fabric scrap and think, “Ahhh yes, I’m gonna turn this thing into a [fill-in-the-blank with something cooler] thing!” One surprising place that such people turn to for inspiration is actually the hardware store (in fact, one of my favorite editors who I worked with as a youngster wrote an awesome book about this very topic). Since I’ve practically pitched a tent in my local Home Depot over the past few weeks, I find myself wandering down different aisles, daydreaming about how to repurpose the most random, utilitarian objects. I spotted these fantastic finds the other day, one of which I I'm gonna play with next week. Stay tuned! [nggallery id=1]
