Creativity & Inspiration Tuesday – Upcycled Decor is a round up that will energize your creative juices with reuse and refurbish home decorating projects.
Welcome to the first Creativity & Inspiration Tuesday round up! If you are new, this is a great place to get home improvement and decorating related ideas. This week is all about upcycled decor. In case you’re wondering what upcycling is it is defined according to the dictionary as “to reuse something and in such a way as to create a product of a higher quality or value than the original.” In other words, it is taking something used and giving it a whole new life.
So check out these wonderful bloggers and their beautiful upcycled projects. I hope this post inspires and fuels you to start your own design.

Make a Planter Out of Anything by Sheri Silver
Sheri shows us in this post how you can make a planter out of literally anything, whether it's an old bicycle basket (above), a watering can, or an old crate.
TRASH TO TREASURE
It always amazes me when people take old things and give them new life. Recently, I was given a bench that was originally an old twin bed. I love that someone gave that old tired bed a whole new purpose and style. Did you know that there are millions of pieces of furniture dumped in our landfills each year? So, don’t be afraid to drive around on trash day and see what treasureS you can find to revitalize and upcycle. The earth will thank you for not sending one more piece to the dump.
Thanks for stopping by to see all these wonderfully talented people. I hope you are inspired and can’t wait to find a diamond in the rough to be restyled.
Do you have a re-purposed piece of furniture in your house? If so please share with us in the comments. We would all love to hear about it.
