Carter Oosterhouse explains how to update a room by recycling furniture.
More in Home Improvement
Repurposing or salvaging materials is a great way to recycle on a larger scale. Instead of hauling a large piece of furniture off to a landfill, look for ways to give it a new life in a home remodeling or makeover project. In this example, an old hutch dresser was turned into a great cabinet for an outdoor sunroom.
