I recently hosted an Urban “Camp Inn,” inviting friends to to bring camp gear, roast marshmallows, tell ghost stories and bask in the glow of a fire (created from a 1969 Sony B&W TV with footage of a real camp fire looped on the screen, and logs made from contact paper and Trader Joe’s coffee cans) all from the safety of the great indoors.
Upcycling is a fancy word for junk shopping, and the ability to junk shop like a pro is a trait that runs in the Siwinski family like athleticism or tallness does in other families. Today’s find? This amazing mirror that ties the bedroom together PERFECTLY (and a steal for $15). Pair that with a mid century office credenza that cost me $0.00 and you’ve got one hell of a bedroom setup for less than some people pay in gas to drive their SUV to the furniture store.
