Gosh!  I think I'll have to start collecting buttons now!!!  I had some ideas, but like the ones already posted, too!  My idea is to find old pictures, of a young girl, or maybe a teddy bear, or something that you might find from the 50's to the 70's in a thrift store; it only works with the right picture, one that will show a person, teddy, etc. with in a dress, or something.  Glue the buttons appropriately on the picture to give it more life! 

Also, old picture frames, or even cheap picture frames that you might want a kids picture in, decorate a corner, or even the whole thing, with kids colored buttons! 

Use to make your own unique Christmas decoration! 

Get some of those flat craft wood pieces and paint a cute saying about sewing or buttons, etc., then decorate with some buttons, poke a little hole in each top corner, add a ribbon through those to hang it by! 

I think you can still get the little "ring" with the flat top at a craft store, you can get those and put a button on it.

How about taking an oval piece of craft wood, or something of your choice, gluing several buttons, overlapping, dip it in resin? or epoxy and putting a pin backing on it!  Older women love to dress up like that!

The table idea is great, but you can do it with smaller tables, ore partial tables, thrift store or curbside throwouts.  But to make it more usable, do like they do for the seashell toilet seats, and use the resin or epoxy, or what ever substance they use to seal it and make it flat surfaced! 

There are endless possibilities when it comes to buttons!!!!

replacing buttons with vintage ones makes everything look cooler....
maybe a jacket with old sailor/navy type buttons?

I glue magnets onto the back of my cool buttons and stick them on my refrigerator.  Cheesy
