Second Chances

Hello and Welcome

So glad you stopped by today!

Today's Topic - Second Chances:

Do you like to reuse, recycle or repurpose items in a way different from its original purpose?  Once you have created your reimagined piece, do you get excited and just love it? 
One of my favorite projects revolved around where I keep my pots and pans. Where do you keep yours: in a cupboard, drawer, or do they hang?  If you look on Pinterest, you can find many inspirations for hanging pots and pans - a pot rack.

My Pot Rack - What item I gave a second chance

I have been reusing, recycling and repurposing for years. It all started when I was young and didn't have much money and had to be resourceful to create decor for our home. My grandmother always told me, "necessity is the mother of invention". So true when funds are limited but your need is great like when you have limited space in your kitchen.
Many years ago, I saw a vintage window grate in an antique store and immediately envisioned it as a pot rack. 

Come and see how I gave the window grate a second chance


  1. Beautiful pot rack!

    informative website.

  30. What you published made a lot of sense. However, what
    about this? suppose you wrote a catchier post title? I ain't suggesting your content isn't solid, however what if you added something that grabbed folk's attention? I mean "Antique Window Grate Pot Rack" is a little boring. You could glance at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create news titles to grab viewers
    to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it could bring your website a little livelier.

  31. I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog.
    Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?

  32. I was curious if you ever thought of changing the
    structure of your site? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?
