Reduce, reuse, recycle, repurpose

 

We’re all familiar with the 3 R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle – but we would like to add a 4th “R” to that list! Repurpose!

Repurposing old and outdated furniture is a simple way to help reduce landfill waste and cut down on the carbon footprint required to make and ship new furniture. Plus, it’s just plain fun!

Wallpaper – It's Not Just for Walls!

Wallpaper – it’s "in", or it’s "out", but most recently it’s been "in". Businesses, designers and homeowners have all embraced the resurgence of wallpaper and there’s lots of beautiful, modern designs out there right now to fit every taste. But of course trends are always changing, and we love that traditional wallpaper has been able to remained current in the design world by being used in nontraditional ways!

Refinish Those Garage Sale Finds

Not to mention, refinishing an old piece assures you that you’ll end up with a one-of-a-kind look!
