Thanks so much to @hunterandhiggler for this lovely post of my shop! 
And thanks also for the rather scrumptious haberdashery cabinet that they brought to me last month for my new BIG SISTER store in Mevagissey. I’m so delighted that the antique cabinet came to be mine, and that has been repurposed in my store. It has brought me so much joy, and is greatly admired by my customers. 
But more importantly I’m so pleased that the cabinet led me to find three new friends in Marsha, Dean, and Ruby, who previously owned it.

I overhauled a vintage nightstand into a tall record cabinet for my daughter. Really enjoyed this build. Brought in a vintage light fixture, some pressed metal, vintage furniture chrome, car emblem and even vintage train tracks on the side to hold record albums for display.  #overhaul #upcycle #upcycled #upcycling #repurpose #repurposed #repurposing #furniture #furnituredesign #home #homeideas #record #records #vinyl #cabinet #storage #artdeco #artnouveau #light #lighted #lighting #lightingdesign #gadgetsponge

A before and after shot of some newly made cheeseboards. A coat of @claphamsbeeswax makes theses boards come alive. Great product and so easy to use. We sell these about as fast as I can make them, and are available today @newwestcraft 11 to 3 on the boardwalk. #artisan #reclaimedart #buylocal #repurpose #wallart #oneofakind #uniquegifts #homedecor #homefurnishings #palletwood #fenceboards #barnboard #pictures #peaks #newwest #custom #customorder #handcut #bamwoodworks #cheesboards #uniquegifts

Perfect gift idea🎁
Use a normal plant container you get from a garden nursery with a small try to collect water. Then place it in a plastic packet and cut to size to wrap around.... this will be handy in case you over water your plant... protecting your fabric bucket🌱..... Then place into your cover💚💚💚💚

Love a bit of repurposing! Old fishing tackle box/ stool bought from @bondslifestyle today ( another bargain!) which I’m going to use as my sewing kit to house all my vintage trimmings! ‘Seat’ will be recovered as a bit damaged and needs girlifying ! #repurpose #sewingkit #fishing

Cutting board turned wall hanging... Painted with DIY Paint brand from @debisdesigndiary and sealed with Howard Butcher Block conditioner. 
So should you want to use as a cutting board again, it's still food safe! 
I really love this JRV stencil from @jamirayvintage. I had to do some arrangements to get it to fit but I think it turned out so cute.

I hated the chrome worktop legs in this part of the kitchen, so we have turned one into a scratching post for the cats (luckily the other one is hidden a but between the tumble dryer and cooker) 🐈 It was pretty easy to do, just needed a ball of sisal rope and it took 15-20 mins to wrap it all around 😁 Looks way better and saved us buying a big scratching post to put somewhere, hopefully the cats will like it 🤞🏼 #DaisyChainHome #upcycle #upcycling #usewhatyouhave #repurpose #multipurpose #scratchingpost #catscratchingpost #diy #diyscratchingpost #cat #cats #homemade #rope #sisal #sisalrope #diyhome #home #kitchen #upcycler #update #beforeandafter #ourhome #myhome #worktop

Fertilize your garden naturally with compost tea. Thank you @thebradleyaustin for making it and Chris for spreading it. Even better that he uses repurposed containers he picked up for free. The ratty old, hail storm beaten watering can still gets the job done too. 
Compost tea is a liquid produced by extracting beneficial microorganisms (microbes)bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes, and micro arthropodsfrom compost using a brewing process. A true compost tea contains all of the organisms that were present in the compost before brewing. The brewed water extract should also have soluble nutrients from the compost (Old Farmer's Almanac). This is the first year I've used compost tea and I've definitely noticed a difference. I've always used my compost, but had never brewed the tea. There's plenty of tutorials online if you want to check it out. Happy gardening! 🌱🐛🐝🐞🌻

as you may have seen on my stories lately i’ve been doing some painting this summer...
•••
if you were or are apart of greek life you’ll know that there’s A LOT of painting involved! there’s a lot of tradition depending where you are for painting canvases& other decorations to pass on to your little
•••
but if each girl in every sorority buys & paints a brand new canvas every year, a lot of STUFF that might eventually end up being trash accumulates. for my big little reveal this year I ended up with TONS of canvases that I really had no where to put! (dont get me wrong- i’m super grateful i have such awesome friends who would do this for me!)
•••
but this year instead of buying new stuff, I dug up whatever art supplies my sister and I had, and decided to repaint some older canvases to pass on!! Didn’t have to buy anything new, and I tried to make them fairly simple so they would go in anyone’s room...and hopefully these canvases will get passed on for a long time, and people won’t have to keep making so many new ones every year! I also had so many i’ll probably be able to share some with other people to pass on as well! reuse and repurpose whatever you can, wherever you can! Even in college. even in a sorority!😊

Have been eyeing this sign for two years, finally got it. Story I was told (and honestly who knows) ... it was meant for a Pier in NYC named after then Mayor McClellan. His popularity waned after he tried to ban movies (Google it) and the project stopped. The son of the original sign carver sold it to my friend, who finally sold it to me. Will be hanging in the workshop should anyone want to come check it out 👍

⚠WARNING THIS IS HAPPENING NOW ⚠ The rainy season in Indonesia created a river of #plasticpollution and sadly this is happening in more and more places around the world....this video is just one example of how plastic trash from across the globe has been piling up in Indonesia.

We took the hutch of my childhood desk (you can still see the pochocco stickers) and turned it into a bookshelf for Zeke! It worked out so perfectly! Now his books have a home (and not in piles on the floor) that is the perfect height for him, and we saved one more thing from being thrown away (my parents gave away the desk portion).

Before I had a budget for furniture, I created a headboard from an old farmhouse door that was original to this house. I repurposed it with a little paint and mounted it on the wall behind the bed. This was perfect for my first modern farmhouse.I wish I had a colored picture, but this was dug out of the archives of my first attempts at design. .

🌿 Resilience 🌿
.
you are always stronger than you think!! 🌿
.
One of the difficult decisions we had to make this year was to move. To leave behind the house we had so patiently and lovingly renovated in the two previous years. With a purpose as our fuel. But things beyond our grasp made that we had no other choice but to move. And we did within two weeks. It was a miracle we found a place that fast. 🌿
.
But I was devastated. We were. We not only lost our house, but so much more. The kids were so angry and sad. And I was tired. More than tired. I was exhausted. I couldn't muster the energy to make our new house our home. Not again. We had no furniture, only two beds (and 5 people), no wardrobes etc. and no money. I felt hopeless 🌿
.
But with time, days of crying, being angry, doing nothing, not forcing ourselves to 'be' anything else than what we felt, praying, slowly something changed. The house slowly began to feel as our home, because wé were slowly becoming ourselves again. And we got creative again. With our limited recources. We've always loved secondhand and that came in handy. We built a home again with lots of free stuff and secondhand items.🌿
.
One of the challenges was the attic. Our bedroom, but also our office, storage (camoingstuff etc) and wardobe. And we only had a bed. So I looked through pages of free stuff on online market places and a new idea was born: a big wall of free or almost free cabinets. 🌿
.
One day they will all be painted one colour. And the bookcase will have doors. And we need 2 more little cabinets to finish the wall. But it may take a while, I'm still so unbelievably tired. But to have a home again, feels so nice ☺️🌿

And the bookcase will have doors. And we need 2 more little cabinets to finish the wall. But it may take a while, I'm still so unbelievably tired. But to have a home again, feels so nice ☺️🌿 . #zerowastehome #zerowastecollective #zerowasteofficial #awastefreeworld #wastefreeplanet #sustainable #sustainableinfluencers #ecofriendly #diy #recycle #repurpose #reuse #thriftstore #thriftstorefinds #secondhand #secondhandmaterials #resilience #homerenovetion #tulipsandatoolbox

I rescued 4 bertoia chairs from the dumpster and dragged them up to #wistaria to retire in the country, unbelievable, they are practically brand new! #recycle #repurpose WI⭐️IA

This is one of my most favorite vintage scores... it’s an old library card catalog (these use to be my BFF’s when I was little)
•
It was a big tall piece and my dad was able to half it and encase it to build a buffet for our dining room. It houses our cloth napkins, place mats and most of our wine (so it’s still my BFF 😏)
•
Finding old pieces (especially ones that have meaning) and turning them into a useful piece of furniture in my house now is my most favorite thing❤️.... there are few furniture pieces in our home that we don’t build or repurpose. 1. The furniture is typically made better. 2. It’s cheaper 3. The thrill of the hunt is one of my favorite things. 4. I love the look of older stuff ❤️
•
What’s your favorite Craigslist list, thrift store, hand me down score??

Next up we have the #REUSE and #REPURPOSING of all the packaging in our workplace.

Finding another way to use something before it's destroyed is better for the planet than recycling because it takes less energy and fewer resources to give it another life, which is why it's higher on the Waste Hierarchy Pyramid.

A Circular Economy means we need to start designing with Reuse in mind, especially when it comes to packaging, and manufacturers need to take responsibility for all the materials they're putting out into the world.

We also need to find ways to move materials on to someone who will be able to use them or turn them into something useful!

Where might this work in your business?
