20 Awesome Upcycled Projects

If you have been following along for a while, then you probably know that Trash to Treasure and Upcycling projects are some of my faves.

I love taking an old piece of junk and repurposing it or fixing it up to make is something beautiful and useful.

The hubs doesn’t really love how these ‘projects’ take over the garage while they are waiting for me to get to them.

But it is always all worth it in the end, right?!

And today I have put together a collection of 20 amazing upcycled projects from around the web to share with you….
