UPCYCLE PROJECTS

View new pieces ready to upcycle. Take the opportunity to have a custom piece made to fit your environment whilst helping the environment!

 

ANTIQUE FRENCH CHANDELIER

Revamp this:

A salvaged chandelier bought in France. Finished result would be fully functional and PAT tested.

Ideas: Coloured or clear glass droplets would suit this best given its origin. Wooden beads are also a possibility following the current trends. If no takers I have another idea up my sleeve that I may experiment with!

Follow my Pinterest board on lamps to see droplet examples.

USED PETROL CAN

Customise this:

Petite petrol can ready to turn into a possible industrial lighting piece. Add a feminine ornate twist!

Ideas: Turning into a shaded light with pen holder in spout for hallway side table. Finish wax or painted plain or with illustration.

3 x GREEN PLASTIC BOTTLE CRATES

Upcycle this:

These green plastic bottle crates were saved from being skipped after an installation came out in a large retail store.

 

Ideas: Transform into individual footstools/seats either for a garden or as fun seating for inside. They could also be joined up to make a bench. Or some form of wine rack! ​

50's LOW CHAIR

Upcycle this:

Bought from a salvage shop this chair has now been stripped back to the skeleton ready to reupholster with the addition of a pair of arms. If you are interested in having this chair upholstered in a fabric of your choice please get in touch.

FREESTANDING VINTAGE MANNEQUIN

Upcycle this:

This mannequin was lined up to be skipped by a well known retail brand due to lack of space and budget. She is vintage and of substantial weight with detachable arms and waist.

 

Ideas: Transform either into a floor standing light or a leg table and table lamp to create a set. She can refurbished and resprayed as a fun colour or illustration or be kept baring her war wounds, age and charm.
