While it is tempting to just dump what you have and rush out to get new things, repurposing is a way more feng shui-friendly solution whenever it is possible. As I move into a new home hat is far more sophisticated than my present one, my mind is one what to keep and what to repurpose.
Today, here is a round-up of amazing projects you can make with things that you may already have, or can find cheaply. Their end products are all enormously useful, and mostly stylish, too!
We are going to kick off today’s round-up with some greatness from HGTV: the ruffled ombre curtain
(above) made of bed sheets. I know, this may be a bit advanced for the non-sewers among you. That said, your extra bed sheets can easily be converted into curtains that are fancy! You can dye them/tie-dye them/ dip-dye them and hand-stitch a little rod-holder at the top.
I had old record crates and no file cabinets. While not the most overall “upscale”, I have to say that I find it to be both extremely user-friendly and actually elegant. Plus, you can start a new set of files with a likely-free crate you can find.
THIS very simple idea to turn wine crates into a garden can be accomplished by asking at your local grocery /wine shop if they have extras 🙂
A old bar cart can turn your kitchen into a pro-station for your advanced culinary moves, and it also gives you more counter & storage space!
There are four or five lamps in storage due for a major makeover. And you better believe that at least one pair is going ombre!
To pull off THIS t-shirt rug, you just need all your old t-shirts & a bit of sewing ability. If you are a no-sew person, THIS rug is your solution!
No matter what you home needs to function well and look/feel complete, you can make it happen! A little imagination and the Internet fuse together to make your best upcyclling happen! This is so great for your mind, your feng shui & the planet! xoxo Dana
