Do It

Repurpose something in your home into something more useful

Doris Yee


Apply your habits of being thrifty and pragmatic to your creative space. A good way of being green can produce unique results just by repurposing your junk. It´s a way of recycling, a break with tradition and a great way to add that touch of fun into your space.

Unlike upcycling, repurposing means that the original object is not modified (or very slightly modified, re-painted...)

    We used an iron wine rack as a shoe rack. It's a lot prettier, less bulky.
