Upcycling…it’s as easy as riding a bike!May 2016
Upcycling is the new Eco-trend and is all about reinventing your old tired possessions into new ones…
We have put together a few tips on how to upcycle and jazz-up your furniture!
Painting is the easiest thing you can do to remodel your existing pieces. With so many beautiful colours trending this year and so many finishes, painting will instantly brighten and revitalise your décor by adding your own touch to your home.
The upcycling design element is not just repainting, repaneling or reconditioning, it is also about using old things to create new things in a different way. This clever vase design is made up from recycled marble tiles…such a great idea!
Buying upcycled inspired furniture is also on the up. This Graham and Green sideboard is an originative storage unit with copper shutter draws. This piece is rough and edgy and would fit perfectly in a contemporary styled living room!
Who said you need to buy a door?! Using reclaimed wood to construct a sliding door is not only a great way of upcycling but it also adds a raw and rustic feel to your home. These would look fantastic in a coastal inspired retreat!
Bought in or made yourself, sustainable design is all about reupholstering, restoring, reusing and revitalising! So why not grab your old coffee table and give it a go!
