Today’s Take 2 Tuesday is a great roundup of easy projects. Many of them can be done with a saw and hammer (or screwdriver). Some may require a drill.
Remember that The Home Depot will make cuts for you if you don’t have a saw.

Hi, there! I’m Gail, the author and mastermind behind My Repurposed Life. I’m obsessed with finding potential in unexpected places and believe that with a little hard work and imagination, any old thing can be made useful again—myself included! I hope you’ll enjoy the journey and pick up a few tools along the way… literally!
Thanks for including my little crate with all these great projects! I'm going to have to start looking for some shutters.
