Upcycling Design: Mirrors Framed with Reclaimed Wood

By Simone Design Blog @HomeSpire

Have you heard of the word “upcycling” with regards to interior design? This word,which started to gain popularity in the mid-90s, means repurposing or reusing materials found in and around your home. It’s an environmentally aware design process that helps you reduce your carbon footprint. An example of upcycling (one that I really love) is mirrors framed with reclaimed wood. This type of wood often comes from old deconstructed buildings; once retrieved, it’s repurposed into home furniture and accessories. An advantage of reclaimed wood is that its age and imperfections give it lots of character.

Maybe you don’t want to have such a huge statement piece in your room. If so, then make it smaller and mount it on the wall. It still will draw your eyes over to it!
