Welcome to Betty Lou where recycling becomes jewelry, art and home furnishings. Most of the pieces in the store are repurposed items designed by creative minds that look at trash and see treasure. We also have some antiques and old items that have become trendy once again. When I work on a piece it will fall into one of three categories: redesigned, reinvented or refreshed. A redesign is when we make an old piece of furniture look new by adding or taking away from it. For example we take ho-hum headboards and paint and upholster them for a completely new and different look. Reinventing is my crazy idea category. When you drag an old martin birdhouse into the garage, you better have a plan. We turned it into a very lovely rolling wine rack. A refreshed item is usually the easy category. Often a nice coat of paint or even some furniture polish and new fabric is all that is needed to bring new life to an old piece.
