Our house tour participants are so creative. Amy used ice buckets to make these sleek, modern planters. Rachel transformed closet hangers into artwork displays, bedspreads into curtains, and a locker into a wardrobe. Jacob and Laurie's entire home is an exercise in simple and not-so-simple DIY projects. The list goes on and on...

Christy and John used an antique sewing table for a kitchen breakfast nook.
Jacob and Laurie used a CD rack to store their daughter's shoes.
Jacob made this bedside table from a drumstool and a piece of plywood.
Patrick's dentist light decanter is just one of the repurposed objects that fill his home.
Rachel's home is a great resource for ideas like this magnetic tray clipboard.
Summer and Josh used a file cabinet as a side table in their Lincoln Park apartment.
Amy used ice buckets for planters in her Humboldt Park apartment.
Andreas repurposed a set of IKEA kitchen cabinets as living room storage.
