Martha once did an entire program on using the right tool for the job. I was right with her. Ya! You go Martha! Right tool!
I was right with her, that is, up until the time I couldn’t find the THIRD paint can lid pryer-opener thingy I bought in as many weeks. I was forced to use a screwdriver/spoon/key instead. I realized then that I will always fall short on the Martha-meter, but that it was okay, because instead, I discovered a “gift” for using something as something else.
A room divider used as a headboard
A flower pot as a utensil holder
A bulletin board as a jewelry holder
An embroidery hoop as the letter O
Shower curtain rings as pail holders
I saw this at a funky clothing store and I fully intend to make one, so I say I can show you – seat made of newspaper/pillow/belts. (Keep reading, husband. Keep reading)
Empty jars for paint brushes (honestly – someone asked me where I bought them. Uhhhh spaghetti isle….) I’m such an artiste.
Wooden trim fashioned into a photo display
Vintage valentines as artwork
You’ve seen my recycling box
Oh and as for those paint lid opener thingy-s? Wind chimes! Ok, bad wind chimes, but still!
