Repurpose and Recycle ...
Forget spring cleaning ...Here are some great winter projects to help you transform your home into a creative wonderland!
Save money, help the environment and enjoy the satisfaction of a creative project by repurposing and recycling household items. It is easy to accumulate a lot of “junk” over time – much of which ends up sitting around in storage or being dumped in the garbage. Instead of wearing the reputation of a hoarder or feeling guilty about adding unnecessary waste to landfill, check out these innovative and inspiring ideas!
Coming up with clever ideas for repurposing household items is all about being creative – a hanging fruit basket can make a great storage device; an old bicycle tyre can be transformed into a photograph holder. Alternatively, check out some neat ideas here.
And now for the big stuff…
Try your hand at repurposing or revamping wooden objects instead of throwing them away or replacing them. An old bed headboard can be transformed into a neat chalkboard or an unused door makes a fantastic rustic coffee table.
Dust off that old wooden desk you’ve got in storage. With the wonderful e-book Refinishing Your Wood Furniture you’ll be able to give it a new lease on life. If you no longer have space for it – sell it to someone who does.
Of course, working with wood can lead to splinters so make sure you have some undiluted Pure Tea Tree Oil on hand.
Simply apply it to the affected area with a cotton bud before and after removal to aid healing and prevent infection.
And when you’ve finished your creative overhaul, disinfect and clean your house with Tea Tree-Kleen. This wonderful multi-purpose cleaner comes in a convenient spray bottle and is safe to use on all surfaces.
