Upcyling | Recycle, Reduce, Reuse…
Antiques may not be your thing. Country chic may come to mind when you consider reclaimed barn board, and not in a good way. The word DIY may send you running for the hills or envisioning swings made from tires and Coke crate bookshelves of university apartments gone by. These things definitely have a significant presence on sites like Etsy and Pinterest but have a look at some of the ways that repurposing wood and furnishings can be really beautiful and not at all kitschy. You may have more treasures around your place than you ever thought possible with a little love and some creativity. And if you know with utter certainty that it’s not your thing, there are many, many crafts people who are all around you who would be happy to help you out. Having a great upholsterer on your contact list is the key to the kingdom when it comes to home improvements. Maybe there’s a little inspiration here to kick start a whole new look.
