Decorating with “crap” is additionally an effective means to recycle. Here are a few thoughts:

– Classic corbels may be mounted underneath new kitchen cupboards.

– Aged bottles and jars are excellent for keeping office things.

– A salvaged barn beam may be employed a to produce a larger, chunkier mantel.
