Thrift Tip: Upcycle!

Have you ever heard of upcycling? That's the term used to describe the process of converting old or discarded materials into something useful and often beautiful. Goodwill is full of items that can be upcycled, often with just a little effort and imagination!

Deena Ross Schrayer found the furniture set pictured to the right at our Lenoir City Goodwill retail store. By adding some paint, upholstery and pillows, she upcycled this Goodwill find into the perfect breakfast nook for her home.
