Upcycling has always played a huge role in my life. My Dad has always been big on taking something old and making it new. Whether it was antique furniture or building a new car from old parts, my Dad was always on the case. Refinishing it and giving it the extra pizzazz it needs. He thrived off of these upcycling projects. I can’t blame him. I always loved seeing the revamped masterpieces that he created.

Just last year my husband and I took on many new projects of our own; taking something old and making it new. We began these projects when we made the decision to jump ship, take the plunge and buy a brand new home. Our last home had a laundry room on the main floor, as opposed to having a powder room. We had a home with just two upstairs bathrooms. It wasn’t convenient and we knew that in order to sell we needed to renovate. We found ourselves moving the existing laundry room to the basement, and converting the main floor laundry room to a powder room. The renovation process took a while, but it paid off in the long run.

There are so many ways that you can convert something old to something new. Pinterest is a great way to find inspiration for these types of projects.

One project I would like to do in the near future is reupholstering my kitchen chairs. The fabric on the existing chairs has gotten so grotty since having children. It’s time for a revamp!

Even General Mills is jumping on board with the trend of taking something old and making it new. Would you believe that Honey Nut Cheerios has received a face lift? At first I was weary of the idea until I tried a box of Honey Nut Cheerios Hearty Oat Crunch, and then I was sold!

Truly a hearty cereal that will satisfy your morning! I may be known to snack on this cereal quite often during the day. It truly is delicious.
