Oct. 26, 2012 - PRLog -- Buffalo, NY: Williamsville resident, Cristin Frank has been upcycling and restoring furniture for the last decade. Now that she’s furnished her home with secondhand treasures, she’s created an on-line forum to teach others to use their talents and creativity to reduce waste and over consumption.

With all the talk about clearing clutter and selling obsolete furniture, a new website, http://EveofReduction.com challenges DIYers to look at what they have and make it into what they want.

Some of the top project tutorials you’ll find on Eve of Reduction’s blog:

·      A small crib upcycled into a shelving unit with a magazine hanging rack:

·      A baby changing table converted to a desk:

·      The back of a chair repurposed into a scarf rack:

·      A flower box repurposed as a ribbon dispenser:

·      A toy box transformed into a hamper bench:

·      A vintage sewing cabinet upcycled into a bar cart (to come)

Besides repurposing projects, Eve of Reduction also features recycled crafts and furniture restoration projects. A 1920s child’s dresser restored by Eve of Reduction was recently featured on Apartment Therapy’s website where it received comments like, “...ONE OF THE BEST TRANSFERMATIONS EVER!” and “Ok, that was literally a jaw-dropper for me, great job!”

Environment friendly practices, domestic DIY and financial conservatism highlight the positives of a simplified lifestyle at the Eve of Reduction site. “We’ve found that taking time to think about options and not acting on impulse or emotion, can save time and money,” says Cristin Frank, founder.  

What’s Next for Cristin Frank and Eve of Reduction?

·      Cristin is now selling her repurposed and restored furniture at local, upscale consignment shops, Offbeat Emporium in the Elmwood Village and Pfohl’s in Williamsville.

·      In March 2013, Cristin’s  book Living Simple, Free & Happy: How to simplify, declutter your home and reduce stress, debt and waste will launch nationally. The book is being published by Betterway Home Books.
