In case you're not aware, the trend of "upcycling" has been sweeping the Internet lately, and for good reason. Upcycling is the process of taking an item that has outlived its usefulness and repurposing it into something different and far more valuable. If you have the creativity, you can come up with DIY upcycling projects for almost every item in your house. Need to get rid of some old doormats? There's a project for that. Want to get some use out of your old light bulbs? You can upcycle that.
One of the places that can benefit most from upcycling projects is your garden. We're always looking for those extra things we can do to spice up our front yards and make it the envy of the neighborhood. Luckily, we've found the perfect solution with this series of DIY projects that shows you how to take old pieces of furniture and turn them into elegant garden features.
