If you're anything like me, you love to scour the internet for creative ideas. I often find myself in awe and wonderment at the creative potential of our human family. And one of the most beautiful aspects of creativity is how it can flourish miraculously out of a need. 

There are so many creative ideas that people have shared for re-using, repurposing, recycling -  or "upcycling" as it's often referred to in the DIY world, and these ideas come from a need to protect our planet. We know we can all do our part to care for Mother Earth, but these ideas show us that we can get totally creative about it! 

We LOVED so many ideas and here we're going to share a few of the ones that really got our creative juices flowing. But we'll definitely come back to posting and sharing more repurposing and upcycling furniture ideas that we love, especially some of the awesome DIY ideas that inspire us to get creative and have fun with our own projects.

If you have a repurposed/upcycled project you'd like to share with us, we'd love to hear from you in the comments section below. Happy DIYing!

Awesome idea. We think our eco-safe wood treatment would be a great idea for a project like this to preserve the life of the playhouse in an eco-friendly, totally kid-safe way.

DIY Reclaimed Wood Storage Crates

We love the old dog-toy handles. Such a great idea for so many possible storage uses! We'd also recommend our DIY weathered wood finish on these reclaimed, sanded wood surfaces for an eco-safe, non-toxic, VOC-free beautiful rustic look.
