GIVE YOUR OLD MIRROR A NEW LIFE

Do you happen to own a mirror that does not fit into you current décor but you keep it nevertheless. Well, before dumping it on the side of the road for the next council garbage pick-up, here are a few ideas on how you can give it another quite useful life, also known as my mantra:  re-use, re-cycle, re-purpose. Bur first, let me clarify, we are not talking a bout a mirror of enormous proportions, we are talking about a medium size mirror that is easy to handle and that does not look too bad.

DIY – How to jazz up a plain glass vase

Hi all, Apologies for taking too long to write this last post but I simply couldn’t find a time. In this DIY Project #3 I want to share with you my trick on how to jazz up a simple glass vase employing the same principle, I call triple R  –  ”Recycle, Reuse, Repurpose“.  I used an old glass vase left on a grass strip outside our building and  waiting to be collected by the garbage truck; as well as a piece of wrapping paper I saved from a bunch of flowers given to me by my loving husband.  You can also use a piece of fabric, I suggest plain to avoid the clash with the flowers,  or even a burlap for  more...
