Everything Old is New Again, or New is Old Again?

Felt and Fabric are my mediums, Paint and Glue, ehhh, not so much. I've found some great artists/creative people lately though. Whether it is re-making an old bed to match new decor or taking new things and making them look old it is all great re-theming of items to match your purpose.

For example take a look at this refinished bed......

Robin in her blog Sweet Little Memories documents the transformation of this old bed and the room it goes in. She repainted it to go with new decor.

In the opposite vein Rosida of Handmade by Decoupage Art took new items from Ikea and remade them into shabby chic style items.

So as you can see whether it is something old becoming new, or new becoming old it is all beautiful and beautifully matched to it's purpose! Take a visit to their blogs for more projects and some great pics of items in shops in Greece!
