I've decided I'm going to start collecting examples of "repurposing." Now, ordinarily I might think that the fishing pole used to hold a flag is kind of clever, maybe a little cutesy, but within the realm of OK-ness. But the folding table used as a dog/baby gate cancels that right out. (It's been there for months, in case you're thinking it's a temporary thing.)And when those pesky dogs and toddlers threaten to get out the back way, plywood springs to mind. And shoe racks.
