Funky Vintage Furniture Upcycles

Upcycling everyday items into unique pieces of furniture has been a practice used by the crafty and handy, as well as interior and furniture designers, for many years.

Well the tables have turned! I found some fabulous Upcycles where furniture has been transformed into something spectacular and functional.

DIY Wooden Picture Frame

Awesome idea posted by DecoratedChaos blogspot.com. Take a simple piece of wood, paint and distress edges with sandpaper. Add a photo with upholstery tacks and a strip of lace. Love it!

Holiday Wreath Ideas

With fall and cooler weather right around the corner I started to get excited about decorating for the holidays. Unfortunately Its a little too early to pull out the Christmas decor, (I had to talk myself out of it) so I decided to go to work on a fall wreath and found these great ideas on bhg.com.

Remember, upcycling is more exciting and budget friendly if you use what you have or use products of nature like pine cones, dried flowers, twigs or leaves. The best upcycle is original and it’s free!
