I love DIY, especially with a focus around repurposing and recycling.  Every piece of furniture you can repurpose is one less item in the land fill.  I would much rather recover a sofa or build my own shelves than buy new.  My projects range from furniture salvage to composting.  These projects are not only good for the planet but they make you feel good!
