4 Ways to Decorate with Upcycled and Repurposed Items

Posted on October 17, 2020. Filed under: First Time Buyer help | Tags: , , |

Due to COVID-19, we have all been spending more time at home than ever before. Making your home feel cozy and inviting has never been so important.

We all have those random “it might come in handy some day” or “I might find a place for that…” items that we have been staring at for the last few months.. We just aren’t ready to let go of it yet. There’s no better way to revamp your home and your dated items than repurposing and upcycling!

To help you get started, we’ve picked four of our favorite (and…realistic) ideas for repurposing, resuing and upcycling your items.

  1. Bookcase to Coffee Bar

Transform your space and coffee game by upcycling an old book case or storage cabinet. Staying in more means bringing the coffee shop to you!

2. Repurpose Your Caddy for Craft Organization

Caddy’s have a unique look but don’t serve a clear purpose. Upgrade your craft room with this repurposed caddy for storing all of your utensils!

3. Repurpose Your Ladder for Blanket Storage

Ladders add height and texture to your room. To make the ladder functional, add your extra blankets for a cozy inviting look!

4. Repurpose Woven Baskets

Have baskets laying around that really don’t serve a purpose anymore? Spice up your wall decor by adding those baskets to the wall. The baskets add a unique look to your space and make a statement. Just simply place a nail in the center of the basket and create your own gallery design!
