Upcycle: Corrugated cardboard jewelry




One of the most popular upcycles featured on this blog is Tarun Upadhyaya's soda bottle and twine lighting.

He contacted me this morning with links to some of his more recent posts on Instructables, and I couldn't wait to share this one!

Corrugated cardboard is everywhere. And it's ugly. So using it to make jewelry this beautiful is an achievement.

Repurpose: Old drawer and dresser mirror


This is what happens when a drawer I found in an alley meets a salvaged dresser mirror from The Evanston Rebuilding Warehouse! Since I bought the mirror with a Groupon I got for my birthday, the total cost of this project was about $10 (shelf brackets and wood stain).

Repurpose: Arty wooden hangers


One of the most popular posts on this blog is a round up of ideas for repurposing wood hangers. Vintage and otherwise. One of my favorites has always been the use of vintage skirt hangers to hang art. And I finally got around to trying it in my new apartment.
