"Upcycling is a little bit of recycling, and a little bit of craft. It’s the “art” of creatively transforming ordinary things into uniquely elegant or whimsical objects."
…with a little elbow grease and ingenuity, timeless pieces can be created with very little money. Upcycled items for the home aren’t just economical; they can also be one-of-a-kind pieces that add character to one’s home. While it’s tempting to order everything on the pages of a catalog when it comes to decorating your home, why would you? If your family and your home are unique to you, why decorate it in a generic, one-size-fits-all style? It doesn’t take much to turn a ho-hum room into one that could easily be photographed for the pages of a magazine. Try an upcycled rug, a collection of upcycled decorative accessories, or make an upcycled pillow for the boring sofa you’ve been thinking about replacing. Think of these handmade items like sprinkles: sure a cupcake on its own tastes good, but that dash of sprinkles makes the experience even better.
This weekend I will work on getting images of our current project(s).
We have taken on the task of two rooms at once - and are off to a great start but between work and the kiddo our time is limited. I’d definitely like to share our progress - and even our home with you though.
Our goal is to have four rooms, including the kitchen, remodeled by the end of summer. *Fingers Crossed*
