Upcycled is the word de jour at the moment. It goes with everything eco-friendly, it fits with everything environmentally green. If you are looking to greenify your home, you will know what I’m talking about! Furniture, flooring and building materials can now be all be made from recycled materials or made by upcycling other items!
Perhaps you are renovating or eager to find something to use to decorate your walls? Well you can even upcycle your wall décor now too! Here are some really fabulous ideas for upcycled wall decor in your home which you can create using old bits and pieces out of your own home!
