Most "repurposing" projects seem to involve some type of paint. I started off with a little black spray paint...it need 2 coats.
I then spray painted the brass hardware (hooks) with a nice shiny silver. I found some clothes pins and spray painted them silver as well. I know the suspence is killing you, isn't it!!??
I took some E6000 adhesive to glue the clothes pins to the old corkboard/bulletin board part. Then found some fun glittery chipboard letters and stuck them on above the pins. This is my new handy dandy "lost socks" holder hanging up in my laundry room!! FUN, isn't it!!??
I think I'm addicted!! Garage Sales and Thrift Stores, here I come!!
