It happens all the time, one item in our home breaks and we just put it in the trash. A good example is this broken bathroom-sink soap container. The ceramic piece did not break but the pump element was no longer usable. I know this is not the prettiest container ever; however, I decided to keep it to experiment different things to see how it would look. Decision made. After I tried some fresh flowers it looked OK. Therefore, the ugly duckling will live a little longer life for now. Smile.
Here are some ideas of what to do after you repurpose an item?
1. Bring it to your office and park it on your desk. You’ll get some compliments.
2. Give it as a gift to your office assistant and explain how you decided to repurpose it.
3. Teach your child the importance of repurposing items to keep them away from our land fields.
4. Or better yet, give it to your child to give it to his/her teacher and tell him to explain the purpose behind the gift that he is giving away. Brilliant!
As you can see, the sky is the limit. Do it, it will make you feel amazing!
