If you are half as obsessed with home decorating shows as I am, you are likely familiar with the term “repurposing”. It is creatively using an item for something other than its intended purpose – like putting legs on an old barn door making it a coffee table, or turning a beautiful plate into a clock. This not only helps you express yourself, but leaves behind a piece of functional art. And in that spirit we have come up with a list of ways to repurpose photo albums!
- Do you have a stack of recipes just begging to be properly stored? Why not take some time to neatly write them down on archival safe index cards, and tuck them into this Full Size Photo Album? Not only will they stay clean and safe in a protective acid-free pocket, but they will be easily referenced the next time you absolutely have to have Aunt Betty’s Apple Pie!
- Are you a list maker? Does your week end with a pile of notes ranging from ‘things to ask the vet’ to ‘color ideas for the bathroom’? I’m with you. I once saw a book that was a compilation of lists kept by someone who never threw any of their lists away! I thought it was such a cool idea, to keep all these scribblings, as I’ve never been very diligent with a diary. An album, like this Bella Designer Album, can keep all those lists together, because you actually need them, or want to laugh at what you once felt the need to write down!
- Paint samples…magazine clippings…landscaping quotes…all the fun things that come with buying a new house! Why not keep these as memories of this, or any other life-changing event in your life. File them away inside your favorite Photo Album, and look back fondly once the dust has settled!
