Uniq Furniture

On Wednesday 24th June, the UK’s first National Upcycling took place, promoted by Gumtree; as part of National Recycling Week (22nd – 29th June) , aiming to inspire the British public to tap into their creative juices, do away with standard flat pack furniture and find unique treasures in need of a new lease of life. I started the day in my garden, watering my plants, and spotted an initially uninspiring old plastic watering can with a large hole in the base. As soon as I saw it, I decided there and then that although a real challenge, it was a prime candidate for an upcycle and took it to my workshop to consider my options! I started by cutting it into parts, leaving only the ‘remains’ below! I then went about building a ‘shed tidy’ from the parts plus a range of bits and pieces found lurking in my workshop! The result was a wall mounted one off product which could be used to hang/store a whole range of items in ‘dad’s’ shed! I did this one was just for fun and to enter into the spirit of the day, with the results tweeted to my followers, Gumtree and fellow upcyclers!
