Upcycled

Upcycling is when you take old stuff and make it into something with another purpose.

Noting the HUGE trend in antique rentals . . .  
Yes it's a thing . . . 
and further noting the enormous amount of old stuff my female relatives and I have accumulated . . . 
we initiated a discussion in starting a business. 
My brother remains reluctant because he knows he will be roped into participating. Recently he got some old furniture for free. Yesterday I came to see him and he was refinishing an old desk. (It looks great.) He’s decided to go into a competing business with us “but I’ll make more money because I will actually get things done.” 
Good point! Generally speaking making something is better than not making something. 
I think this would be a good reality show – husband and wife competing in a crafty business. I would watch it.
