Judy Rom:

My favourite thing about upcycling is how universal it is. No matter where you live, or how much money you have, anyone can be an upcycler.

The inside of the drawer is lined with blue velvet. This material is very well suited for displaying a collection. But you could use any kind of material you want. In the display coffee table, you see featured in this post, the collection consists of vintage stirring sticks.
