a new purpose

I am a huge fan of repurposing the old and otherwise to-be-discarded and making them new.  When I first moved into my swanky apartment this past April, I had an enormously frustrating time finding furniture that I loved.  Ikea was a little too modern for me, and hunted for many moons for the perfect balance between vintage whimsy and functionality.  What eventually ended up happening was a tag sale binge and a few well planned trips to Home Depot.  Viola!  I have a purple clawfoot coffee table and a hexagon side table to match.One of the most challenging projects - being that I am, in fact, a photographer - was finding a way to display my favorite photographs in creative ways.  The walls and shelves only have so much room for picture frames!  I found the idea for using mason jars and mini apothecary dishes on Pinterest, and I have to say, this is one of my favorite displays in the house!
