The junk in your garage, basement and attic may be a treasure chest!
Upcycling is a popular trend where existing items that would normally make their way to the curb are transformed into something useful and stylish. Here are a few creative ideas to inspire you:
- Stylish Shelf - Turn an old ladder into a bookshelf or fix it to the ceiling and hang photos or lanterns from the rungs.
- Picture Perfect - Love a painting but don’t have anywhere to hang it? Just add some handles to create a chic, unique serving tray.
- Door Designs - Salvaged doors can be upcycled into tables, headboards, a storage bench or fix a few together to create a folding screen divider.
The opportunities are endless! Give old items a new lease on life and put your own creative twist on them. You’ll save money and the environment while you’re at it!
