UpCycled Furniture

                                                       Upcycled Furniture

Upcycling, as defined by Wikipedia, is the process of converting waste materials or useless products into new materials or products of better quality or for better environmental value.

If you follow my blog at all, you know that upcycled furniture or upcycling furniture is one of my favorite things to do.
Who knew I was being so "trendy".
Every one of the pieces of upcycled furniture that I work on have been cast off, headed for the dump and no longer loved.
Once they are completed - they become new Functional pieces of art. 
So not only am I having a great time painting in these bright colors - but I am being environmentally conscious and responsible.
That sounds so very grown up!
And if you know me . . .you know that is not always the case. LOL
