Spruce Up Your Home with Upcycled Décor

It’s the greenest thing since buying a Prius and creating a backyard compost heap: using upcycled home décor. Along the same lines as recycling, the idea behind this trend is to take an old object and use it for a new purpose. Rather than simply recycling, the goal with upcycling is to transform the old goods into something hip, funky and a step above the original. Have old mason jars lying around? Textbooks you never read? Good news: you’ve got options.
