In the world of DIY, one of the most common practices is taking someone’s trash and using it as the basis for a repurposed treasure.
More commonly known as upcycling, this technique allows DIYers to prove that they can take almost anything and find an unusual yet amazing new use for it.
Consider Imgur user needdavr1990, for example. This crafty guy took an aging window that was collecting dust in his home, and instead of throwing it away, he combined it with the remnants of an old fence and made a rustic coffee table that would make any interior designer jealous. His project reminds us that making our homes gorgeous doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.
After discovering an old window from his college days, he decided that it could be put to better use by serving as the inspiration for an epic coffee table.
He began his project by removing the screws from old fence posts he purchased on Craigslist.
After taking some measurements, he cut the fence posts to the size he needed them.
