So…there’s a big, big world out there of repurposing vintage furniture, doors, dishes, jewelry anything that needs a face lift. I find it quite fulfulling to take a vintage piece that really can’t be displayed or used in its current condition and discover a way to morph it into it’s next productive life!
I even have a Pinterest Board dedicated to such, called Vintage Repurposed. This board is to collect ideas from everyone who has found a way to repurpose something once loved and regal into a new and exciting product.
For example, a friend gave me a stunning acrylic brooch which must have made a loud statement of fashion during the “Flower Power” era but the pretty green paint had begun peeling and some of the petals were missing. I added a few new touches covering the peeled spots with new gem stones and faux pearls and a vintage goldtone ear bob with a large pearl to cover the missing petals. Finally, I added a florist butterly to the center to nuzzle the original yellow and black acrylic center and there it was…a beautiful repurposed brooch. Still vintage and yet new.
This 1960′s Acrylic Brooch is ready to be added to a bright colored lapel, funky bag purse, colorful scarf or floppy hat to ride the fashion wave…again!
