Thanks to the website FOR DIYers, we found some inspiration. What better way to start 2017 than with an UPCYCLE blog post? They posed the question “What can you do with your scrap wood?” Genius idea! We had to write a blog post about it and share some of their ideas and others we have found. We love the term UPCYCLE! Let’s not waste.

Do you have as much leftover scrap pieces of wood lying around as we do? Let’s rethink it. Truly it’s just smaller pieces of (mostly) perfectly good wood. We can probably use it in a wide variety of new projects. If you have seen our Lil’ Hammers posts, you know we have built small shelves and birdhouses – with wood about the same size as your scraps! To help fuel the inspiration, we are including some of the most inventive, creative and unique projects using scrap wood.

If you make any of these, please post them on our Facebook page. We would love to hear from you and see all that you are doing at home or at work!
