Tire Rim Ottoman
I found this oversized tire rim (from a truck or bus) at a junkyard in northern Minnesota.  When I asked the elderly junkyard worker if I could pay him for it to make a piece of furniture out of it, he looked at me like I was crazy, chuckled and said I could have it for free.  So began the brainstorming process and I always liked the idea of an ottoman made from a tire rim.  The top cushion comes off for storage inside the rim where fabric covers the bottom shelf.  The top fabric is excess fabric I purchased at a rummage sale and the bottom fabric is from a curtain.

Lamp Shade Beads
Recently I learned to cover lampshades to give them a fresh look (as seen in the previous lamp post) by using scrap fabrics or pillowcases.  I took these beads off of a gently used lampshade and cut them off the strand to use for another project.  Taking five minutes to cut off the beads and keep them with the other spare beads I already have is a simple way to add to my supplies without throwing something away or spending any money.
