Repurposing is the new buzz word in the design field, and has crossed all genres. Why? Because we live in a world where we want to do better for our planet, our homes and our pocketbooks…and where we also value creativity over things you can buy. I like that in this world. So redecorating by repurposing isn’t a new concept, but it’s one that is getting a lot of attention. So whether you just want to save a few bucks, waste less, or just have some really cool and unique decor, repurposing is for you.
