Planning some organizing projects for the new year? Well, here’s a decidedly glamorous way to store smaller items…..made from upcycling a few decidedly unglamorous items: pickle jars! Luzia Pimpinella came up with this creative and inexpensive storage option.
You know you’re committed to upcycling when you keep a collection of burnt-out Christmas lights. Amanda at Mommy is Coocoo does, and her lights have finally found their second life as a colorful Christmas wreath.
Debbie at Painted Therapy learned a valuable lesson the hard way: “never put wheels on tables; kids will always use them as trains.” After the untimely derailment of her train coffee table, Debbie went searching in the garage for a replacement. She turned this hand-me-down piano bench into a (stationary) coffee table of beauty!
After being inspired by other projects online, Luzia decided to “Pimp my Gurkenglas.” (Translation: turn her used pickle jars into something awesome.) She shows us how her empty jars became golden-animal-topped button storage over at Luzia Pimpinella.
Ashley at Bigger Than the Three of Us just might be a genius. When a window makeover left her with a bunch of used blinds, she turned them into a sunburst mirror. This may be the first time in the history of ever that mini-blinds have looked so cool!
Kara at Happy Go Lucky shows us how to address our overflowing scented candle collection with a genius strategy–she melts them down to create new layered candles! Decluttering and free layered candles? Yes, please!
Here’s a fun upcycling project from Curly Made. Daniela turned her old jeans into buckets. Yep, you read that right: BUCKETS.
