Who doesn’t love something repurposed? It just means money in the bank. Already owning something and being able to use it in another way is awesome for saving some money, or making something more beautiful.
I have to introduce you to my friend, Ernie Lopez. I met Ernie back in our high school days, and he, now, is an amazing floral designer and the brains behind New York’s The Oak Leaf. Ernie has taken repurposing to the next level. He often takes every day objects to make the most beautiful and elegant floral designs you have ever seen. Take a look at some of these gorgeous arrangements made from things like tin cans, soda cans, and pallets.
