Re-purposing & Upcylcling your ”Junk”

Re-purposing is the conversion of an object for another or similar use.

It’s a good habit to adopt!

Why ? Well, for starters, it’s economical. Re-purposing objects saves you heaps of money on items that you would otherwise keep having having to buy.

Plus it can unleash a flair of creativity you may not know you have.

It’s also a great way of having personalized, meaningful pieces that you create yourself!

There are many fun ways to quickly enhance or change your spaces by re-purposing or up-cycling items you think you don’t need anymore.

Here are a few ideas I found that you may like.
