Rather than throwing away old furniture, building materials, or other items around your home; repurpose or reuse them instead. Repurposing refers to taking an existing item and adapting it for something other than its original use.
Examples of repurposing include:
- Using old saw horses and a door to make a desk.
- Changing a baby changing station into an entertainment center.
- Building bookcases from leftover pipe and lumber.
