Woodcraft invites the Parkersburg, WV area residents to a free Upcycling Event at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore on Saturday, June 21, at 10 a.m. Mixed media artist Leslie Yoak from St. Marys will “upcycle” and repurpose ReStore items to improve their look and value. What’s the difference between upcycle and repurpose? Upcycling is taking something old or outdated and giving it a fresh modern new look. Repurposing is giving new life to an item by changing it into something entirely useful than what is used to be. For example, the item on the left below is an end table from the 80′s, upcycled with General Finishes products from Woodcraft, giving it a new flair with a distressed look to match the rooms decor.
