Recycle, repurpose, upcycle, reclaim - turn it to home decor!

How to turn all the beautiful old junk we were were collecting over the years to something useful but at least decorative?

Antique clothes, vintage textiles, industrial objects, old furniture or lovely collection of useless vintage household to bring new life into them? How to give them a new function?

You can call it recycling, upcycling, repurposing, reclaiming or being enviromentally friendly and going green, fancy words for the same feelings "please can I keep it?" "no way that I have to throw it out"

I was collecting some great home decor ideas how to recycle old treasures, and of course I will advice some etsy finds, gorgeous materials for the crafty and ready-to-use repurposed stuff for the lazier

  2. thanks :) in my opinion if someone wants to furnish a house in a "green" way has to use as much vintage as possible
