Bibbidi bobbidi that’s not a pumpkin…

Bibbidi bobbidi that's not a pumpkin...I don’t know if it’s because the new “Cinderella” movie is coming out or if it’s my life long obsession with Disney, but for several days now all I’ve done is sang “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo” and created all things princess-like, lol.

This last weekend’s project is case in point! Who says you need a Fairy Godmother? We created our makeshift carriage out of found and discarded items. A coffee table, broken mirror frame, vintage bicycle, old prom dress and some scrap wood and… “Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo!”

I guess you can say, just about anything can be repurposed and it’s one of my favorite things to do. We took the coffee table (which was missing the glass from the top) and added some 1/2 inch plywood for stability for a base and then built a 3 sided box on top using scrap wood. Then we removed the rims from an old bicycle and attached to the table legs by drilling holes large enough to fit the hub hardware already on the bike. At this point we spray painted the base gold.

When the paint was dry, we took an old prom dress, cut it in sections and used a staple gun to attach the lace and fabric to the inside of the box. We also, draped the fabric across the front and sides and used the ties to make little bows for extra accents. Next we used the preexisting holes to screw the mirror to the front of the box.

Some anchors were created for extra support and extra fabric was used to line the box. We tossed in throw pillows to cozy the piece up and now it’s perfect for a princess photo-shoot.

This was a fun and inexpensive repurposing project. We were able to make use of several; otherwise, trashed items.

Now get to repurposing your pumpkins people!
