Earth-Friendly Friday: RePurposing

My husband built the arbor with the benches at our front gate, using recycled lumber. Plus, his brother built our garden chairs using old torn down picket fencing.

I love reusing old worn out materials and repurposing them.

Are there any ways you use things in a new way? Please add your ideas to my "comments" to inspire us all to live a little greener.

Very resourceful. I love it!

Happy Friday!

Wow, you guys are incredibly resourceful. I am so impressed.

Our repurposing tends to be much smaller. Old t-shirts get turned into doll clothes, old wool sweaters are felted and turned into pillow or something else, etc.

That's so pretty. I go to Habitat ReStore for the lumber I use in landscaping projects, shelving, etc.

Jen: It's my husband who is so handy. I haven't felted yet - but plan to soon.

Happy Friday.
