I’ve seen some very clever repurpose ideas before, but I’ve never seen such a great use of a slatted headboard. This double-duty makeover from Jessica makes such good use of wall space, which I too often forget to use when trying to plan storage. I love the simple hardware that she’s added to the headboard to hold rolled paper and twine, and the bright turquoise shelves within the cabinet are the perfect accent. This is such a smart reuse of these old pieces, and it’s definitely inspiring me to put together a work station of my own. Great work, Jessica! — Kate

This super clever tin can transformation is one of very few Before & Afters we’ve received that requires no other materials. A designer for over ten years, Jason is no stranger to reinventing simple objects, and this tin can is no exception. There’s something so luxe about the texture and shape of this votive; I would never guess that rusted tin could look that good. I think I have some dented cans in my pantry that have a second shot at daylight, thanks to this project. Great idea, Jason!
