White Elephant Repurposed

For the last several years, every Christmas, my family has done a very simple gift exchange.
This year, my brilliant sisters jokingly suggested doing white elephant gifts instead.
But, being me, I couldn't just leave it at that. . .
Intead, we will be taking items that would typically be white elephants, and turning them into something cool. It's like a family trash to treasure project.
So, to inspire my family on our way, here are a few of my favorite trash to treasure makeovers that I've scoured from the inter-verse.

Most of these inspirational projects came from the genius readers over at Design*Sponge.
Okay, family. . .
Let's get to work!

"It's an Alaia! An A-What-A?"

I was scanning apartment #34's killer wish list today, when I came across these gorgeous darlings!
They're made by a "totally important designer."
If only they weren't $2,375!
Maybe if I had a super wealthy benefactor who wished to pamper me. hmmm.
If you are said benefactor, click here to purchase.
Overnight shipping please!
