Some Upcycled Ideas Include:


pendant_lights

· Repurposed Flowerpot Pendant Lights — Much more than a spot for seedlings, inverted concrete flowerpots can transform into chic pendant lights that look great over your counter or table.

blooms

· Redesigned Driftwood — Save those scraps from windfall trees. With a little creativity you can turn them into cutting boards or windowsill glass planters for those bright springtime blooms.

· Salvage-Pile Kitchen Surfaces — Scour saw mill burn piles and marble warehouses’ leftover materials. You may find some fabulous, but affordable, fragments that can be used for countertops, dining tables, benches and more. Christina Symons’s (blogger at Everyday Eden) dream kitchen had originally been tossed out, including the parts for this butterfly table, fashioned from two slabs of cedar, a delivery pallet, old tools.

· Deli Canister Kitchen Organizers — No need to splurge on expensive kitchen organizers. Recycled deli canisters and mason jars turned sideways become instant, stylish containers that will keep your shelves neatly sorted.

  5. I really want a table out of old scrap wood – the one in the post is beautiful. I may have to start scrounging through the junk heaps!

    We’ve been recycling the large jars for a long time. They are great for storage in the kitchen, playroom, etc.
