28 Incredible Upcycling Projects for you to do

Reuse, reduce, recycle and upcycle! Upcycling is a new green living trend which repurposes old junk to make amazing new items for your home or office. Upcycling bring with it a myriad benefits like saving perfectly useful items from the landfill. When you upcycle, you prevent the use of natural resources to create new items and you have something that has probably already off-gassed all it’s nasty chemicals, so the air in your home or office is cleaner and greener.

Upcycled items aren’t just good for the environment, they also carry with them a vintage steampunk charm that endears them to those who make them and those very special folks who receive them as gifts. Almost everything in my home is upcycled and I LOVE it! Here are some of our favorite items:

    Wow, just shows you what a little creativity can do to some of the stuff that most people already have lying around.
