Whether you are helping to de-clutter Grandma’s home or you’ve inherited vintage and antique items, it can bring feelings of guilt if you realize that you really don’t need much of it. Additionally, so many of the items you may inherit are overcrowding thrift shops. So why not ease both of those concerns by taking those items and turning them into something fabulous, unique and new?! You can keep them for your own home to cherish or even sell them if they aren’t quite your style.
