I realized this past weekend that yes I am hardcore when it comes to DIY-ing... Or should I say upcycling? Repurposing? I think I'm pretty much lovin' all of it. How do I know this? Well here's the top 10 reasons as to why I think I'm hardcore...
Reason #1: I have nails & screws in my purse. The screws are for a chair update that needs screws to adhere the seat to the chair. As soon as I'm close to a hardware store I'm picking up the 4 screws and completing my chair update.
Reason #4: I drop by my local thrift shops quite frequently recognizing other regulars and getting friendly with the people who work in them.
Reason #5: I seriously have a deluge of projects on the go... I'm always working on something and am always looking out for kewl pieces to work on.
Reason #6: I've kept a few of my projects but I get rid of most of them in order to make room for more projects. Once I've completed an update, it's gone in a jiffy with another one ready to go.
Reason #7: I get bored doing the same thing over and over and OVER again so I'm always on the hunt for something a bit different or challenging.
Reason #8: I seriously have people at work or friends offering me free stuff. I have a 'reputation'... Yikes! But thank god for people giving me free stuff - I LOVE my free cabinet (thanks Ian!).
Reason #9: Not too many people know what 'upcycling' is... I do! :-)
Reason #10: It's the end of March and I'm pumped about spring because... Garage sale season is gearing up!
That's my list... Anyone have any additions? Can anyone relate?
