Upcycling Jars, Bottles, and Other Glass Containers.

I cook ALOT. I’m quite proud of my little collection of herbs, spices, teas, legumes, and other dried edibles. Not so much for the actual contents, but for the fact that 90% of the glass containers were upcycled. I saved my kimchi jars, pasta sauce jars, pickle jars, jam jars, booze jars - errrr, whatever I bum off the bartender, and etc. I especially love using the Canada Dry tonic water bottles for my spices; the wine corks I save fits the perfectly as a stopper! The rest of my containers are usually rescued from flea markets and thrift shops. 

I encourage everyone to find a place in their homes for glass packaging. Keep them out of the dumpster.

reclaimed indian curio cabinet in vibrant blue by hammerandhandimports

the indie, moroccan vibe of the furniture pieces at hammerandhandimports TOTALLY matches the ambience of our little berkeley cottage — i can envision many of their colorful reclaimed wood styles sprinkled throughout our living and bedrooms. LOVE the blue hue on this glass display cabinet!!

Upcycled/Repurposed Jeans were used to create this one of a kind handwoven wall art.  “Blue Jeans, White Shirt” Lana DelRey inspired.


These plastic tubes with strings on top are basically ready-made sachets, all you need is cut them into a smaller, more practical size. Sure, it’s plastic, not black velvet, but it’s water-resistant, you can see what’s inside, and you’re turning trash into something useful.

The photo shows one glued with scotch tape, but using a stapler is generally better. I just couldn’t find mine. And yes, I know the two packs don’t match, because I did it first, from an old pack that ran out, and only thought about taking pics for you guys later.
