What if there was a way to use the items we don’t want anymore for a different use? Up-cycling is exactly that: taking things you already have and remaking them into something new. Examples, you ask? Take a look!

The possibilities are endless! The whole point is that when you get an urge to go shopping for new home goods (like I do constantly!) instead look around your house for items to re-purpose and reuse. Green initiatives rock!
