Something Old Made New + Cheerios Giveaway! (Canada only)

When I first bought my house I had a lot of time to do DIY projects - taking old items and make them into new and improved items. I would go to local auctions and pick up furniture or other household items and either resurface or turn it into something totally new. 

When I didn't have the space or much time to do bigger items I started making new clothes and bags from old clothes. Making t-shirts into tank tops, vests, or skirts.  I really miss playing around with so many great ideas. I have recently pinned a few items I want to try and thought I would share them with you.  

So many great inspirations over on the Pinterest boards. I am not really sure where to start. I love the idea of scrapbook paper on the kitty litter bins as they make awesome containers. We use one as a small recycle bin inside and they are great for pet food. Just don't leave one outside with birdseed in it as the squirrels can chew through it, not that we learned this from experience or anything.

What have you done to something old to make it new? I would love to hear all about it, leave a comment below!

General Mills is also making something old into something new. Their Honey Nut Cheerios has had a little makeover and boy is it tasty! They have added the perfect medley of crispy oat flakes and delicious nut clutters. This is a delightful and fun change to my breakfast. You will start seeing the new cereal in stores on June 24th.
