Common Objects Part II

You all had some great ideas to use common objects. Here are a few more from my files.
Tina has an old dough bowl filled with glass knobs and old keys

My son decorates some shelves with old cameras

Baskets as storage


clay pots

soaps from hotels


colorful pasta and beans

Got any more ideas?

I really enjoyed your ideas on this post, as well as the last. I like to keep my blingy jewelry in an apothecary jar on my vanity. It creates lots of color, sparkle and shine.
Thanks for sharing!

I have an old dough ball filled with an incomplete set of bocce balls I picked up at a yard sale. They add a nice bit of color.

It's always fun to see how you the old door handles in the wooden bowl. I can do that!

Wish that I had something to add to the discussion, but I'm not doing anything unusual.

I collect buttons in a mason jar, that is part of a lamp. I have a small kitchen, so wooden spoons (which I love to collect) in a small crock on the counter. Another crock holds kitchen utensils. And my pots and pans are hanging on a ladder, which is hanging from the ceiling. Extra bath towels in a large basket, small suitcase holds hair dryer, curling iron and straigtner.

Great ideas Margo.
I am always full of ideas, you know me. I have my art supplies in pretty glass jars. I have another glass jar full of small pool balls, just cause I thought it looked colorful.
We aren't near any fires yet, thank goodness.

With you, nothing stays common for long. It suddenly becomes special and just plain "cool"!

I don't think I have anything too exciting around here. Old wooden spools of thread in a blue mason jar, my mother's marble collection in another mason jar. I have been wanting to do that with the doorknobs, but haven't found anything I like to put them in. I've already got the knobs. I love how you did the clay pots though!
