Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Upcycle: Woodgrain contact paper re-do's ...


Faux bois / woodgrain is everywhere ... adding a little mid-century flair? A little "natural mod" texture? It's cheap, trendy, versatile and easy to use!  So it's a GREAT upcycling material. Here's a round-up of projects I think are graintastic!


 DIY Woodgrain candles, from The Divine Minimalist


The Fine and Feathered laptop re-do created for Instructables


Wonderful plastic cooler makeover by Almost Makes Perfect




Giving a little depth to a glass jar or vase ... from a Spoonful of Sugar



Ugly wardrobe makeover from I could make that


Great tutorial for copying an image with a projector ... and for the tables of course. Head to Crafty Nest


A little hoop art care of Fresh and Fun



Re-done magnetic office organization via Curbly



Creating an amazing wall feature ... care of Blue Eyed Freckle



And finally, used to turn cardboard tubing into eye-catching, functional storage
