We all know that recycling means change waste into something that can be reused. But have you ever heard of upcycling? Upcycling is also called creative reuse. When you have something that you dont want anymore instead of throwing it out, you turn it into something else with a completely different purpose!
I have been repurposing things around my house before, I just didnt know there was a fancy term for it! There is a website devoted to upcycling where you can get ideas for repurposing all sorts of things. In this video, we are shown how to take an old end table and turn it into a 4 poster dog bed! After flipping the table upside down, you finish it any way you like.
