DJ’s Designability Motto: Professional. Meaningful. Affordable.

On previous blogs I’ve discussed in detail my affinity for two things: design and re-purposing. For those new to DJDS, re-purposing is using an item for a secondary purpose. Specifically items that you already have around the house that you’ve already used for the intended purpose. For instance instead of throwing away used candle jars with lids, I clean them out and reuse them for travelariums.

Also, a good friend introduce me to the idea of taking an old door, refinishing it and turning it into a fantastic table. I think the reason I love that “outside the box’ thinking is because it really jump-starts my creative juices.

The images shown are some wonderful repurposing ideas I’ve discovered along the way that I’m glad to share with you. Speaking of sharing, don’t forget to share these wonderful ideas with your Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus networks using the Share This Post option at the bottom of this post.

Creating a Travelarium aka Vacation Keepsake A wonderful repurpose idea!

While on vacation in Florida I had an idea to create a travelarium, my word for a jar displaying special items from a trip…to be used as a travel keepsake or unique souvenir gift that looks great in any home or office. What’s especially great about this idea is its REPURPOSING aspect. I love finding new uses for old things.

Easy, chic & environmentally-conscious. That’s a winning combination.
Here’s a video tutorial of how I created my travelariums so you can too!
