Reclaim Restore Resalvage Repurpose

These are all popular terms now for taking something old and "repurposing" into something that might be updated or used to function in a different way. Take your grandmother's old cameo or other type brooch and add to a cuff bracelet, take an unused ornate picture frame and turn into a tray, add something decorative to old mason jars and use to hold flowers, turn old silver trays into chalkboards or add magnet and hold photos!
