First off, you might be wondering what is upcycling? Upcycling is the process of reusing and transforming unwanted material and making it into a new usable product. It's almost like another way of recycling, but instead of just tossing your unwanted items, you can make them into different things that you can use for storage or even as decor. Websites like UPCYCLE THAT and HGTV have great ideas and even some tutorials for your next upcycle project.
