Re-use + Repurpose + UP-cycle!

If you are like me, you probably have things laying around the house that you no longer need but do not want to throw away just in case it may come in handy later.  Often times, it can be the latter, it may not serve its original purpose, but it can always be used for something else!

In the wasteful world we live in today, we need to think about re-using, repurposing, and up-cycling! As they say, sometimes one person’s junk is another persons treasure. There are many creative ways of making something new out of something old.

Let me show you some cool ideas!

Take a second thought before you throw something away next time. If it cannot be repurposed, it can always be recycled! There are many things you can do instead of adding to the landfill. I hope this post can spark some creative DIY ideas for repurposing and upcycling items in the home!

Happy Living!
