We know how important it is to conserve energy, recycle, upcycle and reuse, and for those planning on doing a major remodel on their home, it can be very costly to the environment and to one’s pocketbook. Not only isn’t environmentally friendly, it’s actually all the rage these days!
With Earth Day just a few weeks away (April 22) now is the perfect time to start thinking about upcycling different spaces, especially the kitchen which gets the most traction in a home! Country Woman magazine was kind enough to share a few inspirational images of this beautiful upcycled kitchen.
