Quutest Painted Cork Board

Why must cork boards be in a boring brown colour? That is the first thought that came to my mind. I wanted one with a black background to bring out the colours of my pinned items, so I scoured the web to see if any shops were selling them. There were none!

Quutest Upcycles- Hot water indicator

While we all struggle to save Mother Earth from plastic waste, the common concept that comes to mind is to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. "Upcycling" is Reuse which is simply put as repurposing existing materials (be it plastic/metal/wood,etc) that may be useless on its own, but with some creativity and innovation, they become valuable and handy items again.
