How about incorporating Upcycling into your life?

There are so many items that we throw away or donate that many people actually recondition and sell at a premium today. Here are some ideas:

  • Transform an old wooden dresser into a charming bathroom vanity. http://www.hgtv.com/design/make-and-celebrate/handmade/turn-a-vintage-dresser-into-a-bathroom-vanity

  • Take old wooden window shutters and turn them into room dividers or tables http://blog.blinds.com/10-things-to-make-with-old-plantation-shutters/

  • Repurpose old doors and windows into furniture pieces with a touch of history http://www.thistlewoodfarms.com/diy-giant-chalkboard-calendar

  • Take old Mason jars and turn them in to fun storage solutions around the house http://www.countryliving.com/diy-crafts/g1821/mason-jars/

I had an interior designer that used to work with me that used almost exclusively upcycled items. Most of her items she picked up at garage sales, estate sales, and even trash items. She would clean them up, put paint into some, but the for the most part she would use that old item in a way you don’t normally intend. This inexpensive way makes people think and reminisce. The nostalgia of that memory of an old item often puts you in a positive mood. Not a bad way to sell a home.
