Repurposing Things...

Sometimes you just need to see beyond what items are meant for and find new uses for them. My sister found this piece last summer at a garage sale, she paid only $5.00 for it. The piece is actually a wood cased cooler. I sanded it down and painted it a fun color for my back porch. I thought it would be great for parties, but the first time I used it I couldn't move it to drain the water from the melted ice. So from that point on I decided to use it as storage for pool towels and that was a perfect fit for the piece. Grace and Michael can simply grab a towel out of it as they head for a swim. It also doubles as an extra surface for placing drinks!
