Repurpose, Up-cycle and Renew

The relentless desire for new technology and a growing awareness that the resources needed to fuel our lives are increasingly threatened, mean that we must all play a part in improving the sustainability of houses and how we live in our homes. Recycling, up-cycling and revamping are not new concepts.  The general maintenance of household furniture sat along side home cooking back in the day.  While there has always been a hard-core of “makers and crafters” out there, there is now a new breed, who previously wouldn’t have considered taking on such projects, but have been inspired by blogs and decor websites to tackle some of these projects themselves.

Take a moment to be inspired by these up-cycled, renewed and repurposed furniture in this slide show gallery and hopefully it will spur the inner crafters in you to recycle and renew and play a part in preserving our planet and resources.
