Repurpose With A Purpose

4567
In my efforts to reduce our household waste, I took a good part of my weekend repurposing items that I planned to donate or throw away.  It became a fun game that not  ended  with me having new decor pieces for my home, but put my creative skills to use.  I know, you are all dying to see what I came up with, here’s a few pic for you……..

Awesome wooden spoons my oldest daughter made for me, that I just had to display since they came out amazing. I used 3 pie plates I had hanging somewhere else to go along with the spoons. I love how this unused spot adds so much to my already great kitchen. Def my favorite room in the house.

 

Repurposing is a great for many ways like reducing our household waste thus reducing landfill waste and extending the life of a possession.  But savings things to be repurposed and not getting to it adds clutter.  That’s why it is important you remember the phrase above, “repurpose with a purpose.”
Have you repurposed or upcycled anything lately?  If not, do you have a project that you want to do?
