So lets talk crafty, vintage, retro…..antique, diy New Years Resolutions! What if I told you there was a way to help our environment, use up a bunch of junk you probably have laying around…..or you could pick up on the side of the road (dumpster diving is for another post) and make your house look fabulous at the same time? Well UPCYCLE!! It’s a huge trend right now! All you have to do is browse blogs, Pinterest or the internet to find some fabulous ideas on how to take make your trash into treasure! Here are a few of our favorites!
Who whoulda thought? Lockers turned kitchen hutch!! Old lids with a little cork…….instant rustic coasters! And all those single candle sticks, old vases from the florist and what about all those plates who’s poor mates have been broken and forgotten long ago? Well a little glue and now they have new life as eclectic cake stands!!
We just LOVE the look of an old suitcase sawed in half and mounted as funky shelves!! Must have that glove mold on the top shelf?……well we just happen to have some in the store!! Fabulous and easy…….boxes out of old yard sticks! These would be great for utensil organizers in the kitchen! Have a broken dresser with perfectly good drawers? We think adding casters to the bottom and using for under bed organization is a fabulous idea!!
Hopefully we have your brain doing a happy dance and coming up with some Up cycle ideas of your own!!
