~ UPCYCLING ~


Who has a pile of things they will eventually get to "upcycling"? I have all sorts of projects and cute furniture pieces I will eventually turn into something fabulous. At times I sit and stare at them and wonder what in the world they should be.

I love getting inspiration from all sorts of places, but magazines are a treasure trove of ideas.
Being a very visual person Country Living magazine never disappoints. They have a full lineup of ideas here.

Here are a few of the ideas they came up with.

Vintage brooch magnets


Old ruler tabletop


Book vases


Ceramic bowl pendant lamps


Old crate shelf


Vintage tin candles


Are you feeling inspired?
