Reducing waste through upcycling, repurposing, refashioning and reloving.

Repurpose: Book-loving DIY'ers decorate ...


Repurposing books for home-decor purposes is a niche obsession of mine. In case you hadn't noticed. And my obsession is enabled by a few of my friends who share it. And regularly run with it! One of those friends is Terri, whose projects (and word-themed wedding!) have found their way onto my blog a couple of times now. But guess what? I can now show you her entire home, thanks to Julia Brenner at Apartment Therapy!  Julia published Terri and Adam's home tour on Friday ... and it's awesome. My add on from the tour: links to tutorials to make some of the book-upcycles you see. 


The book headboard. Terri's original idea was to use book covers ... and perhaps a paint wash over them. Then I saw this tutorial, sent her the link and check it out - they made it! DIY at Design Every Day



This book-vase is a wedding keepsake. If you're interested in seeing more of their awesome wordy-wedding creations, go here.
