Great idea Susie, I'm working on a sign that I found at the TS now. It was blue with some ducks painted on it. I sanded it all off and am repainting it with a snowman design. I'll try to remember to post it here when finished.

I love to find things at TS/YS that I can repaint into something I can use. I have several trays from TS waiting for painting too. Maybe a couple of them will become Christmas items.

Do you have some pics to inspire us too? Would love to see the things you've been making too.

Dear Luvs: Thanks for the response, and mostly for the imput!Your Ideas sound terrific ! I too like to re-purpose the wooden things into something that is more to my lifestyle or for the season... that's the wonderful thing about sandpaper and paint !!! They trays sound so cool --- are they wooden/or tin?
I do NOT have any pictures YET... but my DD has a digital camera and takes the pics of my GD and she said she would help me...so I hope to have them Really soon! She also knows the computer... and said she would help me.. I can't seem to comprehend this computer and digital stuff... EEK
Right now I have a cut on my index finger and I can barely type...(cut it on a piece of aluminum ) so hopefully it will heal up soon... it was worse than I thought. Anyway this typing and other chores / and Treasure making have been slowed down alot!
I will have some pics of my Finds, a few of the past and some of the FUTURE PROJECTS!!!
I seem to haaaaave way more future projects than I'll ever have time for...

I am always turning old furniture finds into re- purposed items.***
I am making some SNOW People out of picket fencing !***
