    I love reading on DIY projects that involve recyclables. It gives that sense of fulfilment to know that you are actually able to create a beautiful masterpiece out of a piece of junk such as plumbing supplies. I guess it just needs some effort and creative juices to transform some scrap into something usable without any extra costs.
