UPCYCLING is one of the most af­ford­able ways to breathe new life into your home.

If you’re look­ing for a way to spruce up your rooms, try giv­ing your ex­ist­ing fur­ni­ture a make-over.

Al­ter­na­tively, if you’re mov­ing into a new home and are work­ing to a strict bud­get, you might want to con­sider buy­ing some new items and spend­ing the rest of your fur­ni­ture bud­get on upcycling.

This will en­sure your home has an aes­thetic unique to your taste and per­son­al­ity.

After all, you don’t want to run the risk of hav­ing your bed­rooms look­ing like the in­side of a cat­a­logue.

HOW TO?

You don’t have to be a car­pen­ter or an artist to up­cy­cle your fur­ni­ture.

Upcycling could be as easy as re­plac­ing the han­dles on doors or draw­ers.

An­other easy way to re­ju­ve­nate your old wooden fur­ni­ture is by giv­ing it a lick of paint or sand­ing it down and re-stain­ing it.

In­ter­me­di­ate up­cy­clers should con­sider buy­ing new fab­ric and re-up­hol­ster­ing chairs.

Cre­ate a cof­fee ta­ble by stick­ing a glass plate on top of an old trunk.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

You don’t need much to up­cy­cle.
