A Bit Unconventional

Have you ever cleaned your house to the point that your muscles got sore?  Well, according to my back, butt, and hamstrings, I must have cleaned the you-know-what out of my house this weekend.  Holy smokes, I'm super-sore!

But, there's nothing like a just-cleaned home!  It makes me happy to be able to move from room to room and enjoy the space stress-free (since I'm typically just making a laundry list of things that need to be done when it's getting a bit out of hand).  Can anyone else relate?

This past weekend in my cleaning efforts, I did a few things that were a bit unconventional...but I was kinda surprised by how much I liked how these things turned out, so I thought I would share.

First, I used my towel ring as a necklace organizer...

Not entirely far-fetched, I know, but we rarely use the towel ring to hold towels (since another towel bar is nearby), so I figured I'd give it a new purpose.  I was happy to see how much better it looked holding something than it did just hanging there useless.

Next, I went a bit crazy and used a picture frame as a tray for candles...

It's outrageous, I know!  In fact, it might even be a bit rebellious...but I was desperately in need of some counter top decor in my master bath!  I don't plan on using this set up as a permanent solution, but for now, it's there and it's serving its purpose well...and I really can't complain about that.

So what about you guys?  Has anyone else done something unconventional lately?  Have you started using something in an entirely new way?  You could probably tell from my chandelier project that I'm not one to go exactly by the manufacturer's instructions on things.  Seriously, picture frames to make a light, and now picture frames as a tray...what will I think of next?  Ha!
