My Simple Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday Project!

Okay, I love Sue's Simple Monday projects on JUNKMARKET Style! And that inspired me to do a simple project of my own. They're definitely right up my alley. They contain virtually no work, and I like that! But I wasn't sure if it would be a Simple Monday, or if it would be a Simple Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday . . . you get the picture. So whatever day it is, I think simple is good! So here's to simplicity!

This was just a vintage chimney cap. Nothing special, but it had a certain appeal to me.

Okay, from first glance, I know this looks like a wart! Not! Ha Ha! But it is one of those plastic protectors used for furniture. I placed them on the four top corners of this piece. Bet you can guess what I'm doing next!

This works perfect as a small coffee table with a glass top added to it. It's a no work project! Pretty easy don't ya think?

I really love how clean and simple this table looks. It even has a somewhat industrial look to it. And again, no work!

While I'm at it, I thought I'd add another simple project. This piece in it's former life was a chandelier.

Since it no longer worked, it's repurpose seemed natural when flipped.

And when you add a glass table round on the top, you have an instant table. Simple again, yet elegant. How many fun things you can use as a table by just adding glass. Wowzers!

Thought I'd go from table to table top. Anyone know what this piece is? Actually, I'm not sure either. But I have plans for it!

Just a simple piece of glass and it becomes a table rise. Makes for a more inexpected table scape, dontcha think? And guess what, no work!


Finally, here's a vintage bird bath. I thought, why not bring the outside in. With a piece of glass, wah lah, a instant side table! (By the way, why does the cat always want to be in the picture???).

So I hope I can continue the inspiration Sue started and inspire others to do their own Simple Mondays, or whatever day you choose. Cheers to simplicity!

Love 'em all! When in doubt, I'm now either gonna:
A) Turn it upside down
or
B) Add glass to it

If it's good enough for Lanette, it's good enough for me! :-)

Thanks for all the kind words. You don't know how much that means to me. Sometimes my husband thinks I'm a little crazy, so it's nice to know I'm not! LOL! Thanks, Jane, for the award. Wow! I'll go check it out. Alice, don't know about being famous, but at least I know my kitty loves me :) Anne, one thing Sue always says is if you don't know what to do with it, turn it upside down, flip it around, etc. I guess I can add to that add glass! Take care!

Another great post filled with wonderful inspiration and ideas.
I have found the inspiration from Sue to turn it upside down and inside out to be quite handy and surely the addition of glass on these items is truly stunning.
Kind of fun seeing your house today from the back view. I drove my sister past your front yard, so she could enjoy your yard. She was suppose to be in on the home tours last year, but the blizzard wrecked that, so she's viewed it all online and follows us on Junk Market.
Your yard looks great by the way!

Gretchen, too bad you couldn't stop in, but then again my house is a "mess" from being so busy with the Bonanza. At least she saw green grass and not snow! Ha!
