Corner View.. Repurposed items in your house.. or something like that...

OK today's Corner View is something about repurposed items.... this seems to be a buzz word on HGTV and home improvement shows in general.  I don't know  about you but it seems like everything has a million and one uses and if I was the genius who came up with the whole "repurposed" thingy I'd be kicking myself in the ass for not patenting that word.... if you can patent a word that is... maybe make it a trademark? I don't know.... but you get my drift right...and I am drifting... I know... it's 5.27am and I am trying so hard to get this out there on the right day so cut me some slack!!! not a morning person people... you should know that by now.

OK so my first repurposed item is this..................
We took a hot young sailor and a vivacious cutie full of life...and made them into a couple who would conquer the world.... they traveled together and experienced the thrill of young love... hot to globe trot you might say!
and we turned them into this....
A luke warm couple of old farts.... only trotting in the months that have an R in them... wait a minute.. this is February.. there may well be 2 trots this month... of course.. my birthday and Valentines day!!! Looks like this couple have had some good times and been rode hard and hung up wet a time or two!!!!

My second repurposed item is this little beauty.............
yes once again I started out with hot young sailor... very good looking and athletic... and turned him into none other than Laundry Man!!!!!  Yes ladies you too can make yourself a laundry man... all it takes is a few weeks of constant nagging and withholding of essentials... you know what I mean, don't act shy!!! Conveniently "forget" to wash HIS pile of stinky clothes in the corner, after a couple of days going commando due to a lack of clean undies.... your loving man will pick up some clothes and take them to the laundry room, place them in the washer and if you're a real talented nagger like me... he may even be coaxed into getting them into the dryer.  Now don't go too far with this... he's not going to be able to take them out and fold them in the first couple of months... and it's going to be a very long time before he'll actually get the clothes from the laundry room to the bedroom and we're still working on the hanging in the closet thingy... but folks after twelve years of nagging I'm just happy to report we're making progress!!!!!!!!!!

Now for other Corner Views and repurposed items, head on over to Jane at Spain Daily....check them all out.. it's fun!!!! Besos darlings.

'Laundry Man', That could be a super hero. "Saving the world by cleaning your laundry!!"

Nice post!

Very refreshing! I love it!

My hubby took over doing the laundry "to help you out." Aaack! Thanks for the "help" buster. I hired him a gardener to mow the lawns to "help" him out. Somehow that doesn't seem like an even exchange.

Love your sense of humor today and every day. Happy Corner Viewing.

Look at the size of that margarita!!! Yowza!
My hubs will do laundry too. I think it's because he gets sick of waiting for me to do it. He'll wash and dry, sometimes even fold. But forget about putting stuff away. It'll sit on the bench by the bed forever and day!

Great post on repurposed items!
