Do you enjoy giving new life to old items or creating something totally different?
Well, I’m sharing 9 amazing upcycled and repurposed projects with you.
You have to see these. I’ve joined with 8 other AMAZING bloggers to share our favorite up cycle and repurposed projects with you.
I’m talking about people who speak our language: Reduce / Reuse / Recycle.
If you are like me, you get more excited about a side of the road or thrift store find then ordering something new from Pottery Barn.
I think that’s why I’m so excited to share these today.
I’m beginning with one of my favorite up cycles. My mom’s vintage sewing machine that I turned into a bar cart. I love keeping memories alive, this is one way.
