Use it up, wear it out, make it do or do without.
That’s a pretty good adage when it comes to making the most of our possessions. But what about the re-make aspect? To me, that’s where the real fun lies. I think the Wary Meyers agree.
They found not only the use-ability but also the humor in their used up stuff. Their new book, Wary Meyers’ Tossed and Found Book is definitely on my Wish List. I especially love the how-to sketches and behind-the-scenes planning pages.
By scrounging through flea markets and trash bins the Meyers have found items that lived a great life and given them a whole new existence. Basketball hoop turned side table anyone? From garden to dining table – ceiling?
