These types of re-purposing projects are awesome for helping to reduce our waste and reuse "tired" items that might still have a bit of life in them, all while upping the cute-factor of our homes, offices and closets.
Flea Market Trixie: Re-purposed Vintage Doilies and Frames
Re-purposed vintage doilies and frames make for some interesting impromptu wall art! This project comes together in minutes once you've gathered your materials...and what a unique way to display Granma's cherished doilies.

All You: Milk Jug Desktop Organizer
Instead of tossing your next empty milk jug, why not re-purpose it into this handy-dandy supply organizer. This would be perfect on a child or adult-sized desk, or in place of the kitchen junk drawer (...I know I'm not the only one with one of those drawers!).

Mommypotamus: No-Sew T-Shirt Tote
Be honest. How many t-shirts do you have in your closet that haven't seen the light of day in the last year? Perhaps it's time to re-purpose one (or several) of those bad boys into something a little more useable. If you're like me, you'll like this one...no sewing required!

EPBOT: "Dew" It Yourself Jewelry Stand
And to cap it all off, a little DIY using empty bottle tops. What a cool way to display your baubles and bling. I especially like that the bottom tier is shaped so that bracelets can be hung as well!
