'The Best of Your Before & Afters' Inspires Eco Design

Have you ever mistakenly discarded a piece of old, dreadful furniture or a defunct household item, only to discover it could have been cleverly repurposed or upcycled into something lovable and new? In the business of green writing, I often come across really amazing projects of this nature, and it has inspired me to see things in a different light, and wonder whether they could be reborn into a new design.

'The Best of Your Before and Afters' is a website which showcases the average Joe's furniture and thrift shop find transformations. It is really uplifting to see something you think is totally hopeless, resurrected into something totally fabulous. Drab chairs and hideous entertainment centers turn into chic perches and stylish cabinets. Go visit the site to see how working with what you already have is good for the environment and for the soul!
