Home Decor via Re-Purposing
Remember when you were first starting out? Your first shared apartment?
Your dorm room? There was more creativity than money and thinking outside the box was the norm. Creativity still applies today: combine it with recycling and you have the new vogue in home decor: Re-Purposing.
For example: comb through an upscale neighborhood garage sale. Find a tired but striking nightstand or end table. Repaint it in a “wow” color, contrast the top and coat with shellac. Place it in your entry or hallway and top off with an accessory vase or photograph display. A furniture piece is recycled and you’ve helped your budget. It’s a win-win.
