Frugal Decorating: Trash to Treasure

I love to find things on the side of the road that other folks have designated as trash that still has life and love left in it! These two little tin hanging boxes will be painted. The rusted metal one will be painted white and the french one probably red. On the Yellow one the body will be painted purple and put into the girls room. Leaving the sunflower yellow!

TIP: Keep even small amounts of paint in the 'color patterns' of your house so you can paint your finds to co-ordinate with your decor.

The screens well that is still up in the air. Here are some great ideas to use old screen doors. Perhaps a front door organizer, homeschool chart rack, in my closet, laundry room or bathroom. I love choices and I love "big" trash day.
Remember, if you see something you think may have some potential in it, pick it up! If you cannot think of anything then google it and some super creative girlie out there will help a sister out!
