Anyway, I wanted to show you just how easy I converted a broken down cabinet into my favorite piece of the house.
I got this shelving unit from my neighbor, she was going to throw it away, although apparently it had been used for an iguana or some sort of reptile, so the shelves were gone and a glass had been fitter, but that is all going to change.
I chose this time some matte glue to give it the look I want .
Everythign else is left to your imagination.
I decided to use some of the old glass to cover the table.
To avoid a tragedy I put a couple of blobs of glue on the corner of the unit and let it dry well, after this the glass should not slide at all.
Almost finished with the top ....Its looking great!
Difference between Up-cycling & Re-Cycling....in my opinion
Re-cycling is the of using of wasteful material for something else other than the dump, to avoid contaminating procedures such as incineration, during the process of recycling the object can be turned into another object incredibly different .
Up-Cycling is the using of wasteful materials (an item ready to be thrown away) and by treating and mending the item improving the final result.
I think that the two things that mark the difference between both definitions is that up-cycling doesn't involve changing the nature of the material and it end up with an improvement.
