Junk-Trash to Treasure

Doesn’t look like much to others, but to me, treasures!  The first project I wanted to do was to find a place to keep all our dogs’ leashes and collars organized.  We have four dogs so we have quite a few leashes piled at the front door…


I used the head of an old rake to make a hanging organizer.  Here’s the rake coated with dirt and rust…

First, a good washing with some Comet using lots of elbow grease…

The leashes and collars are hung up on a wall behind a door, out of the way.  This trash to treasure project was a very practical one, because it’s one that is going to save us lots of time when we’re ready to take the dogs and “go”.  As dog lovers know, once the dogs know it’s time to “go”, you don’t want to keep them waiting!
