This is a sequel to my previous post, Repurposed & Upcycled Homewares On Etsy, which has had lots of positive feedback so without further ado here’s more of the same. I love putting posts like this together, the only drawback is trying to narrow down my choices from all the creative awesomeness 🙂
Beck(y) Sk8bags are from their range of accessories handmade from recycled skateboards. Each is one of a kind, carrying the original scuffs, scratches and stickers of the boards’ original owner.
Paladin is the fifth in the Texas Longhorn bull series of sculptures by Bettye
Hamblen Turner. He is welded stainless steel, carbon steel and recycled auto and motorcycle parts. See more at Sculpture Ranch.
Dreamweavers soft furnishings range includes rugs, throws, pillows and wall art made by hand from upcycled fabric remnants from silk necktie and cotton T-shirt manufacture.
This ingenius shoulder bag design is from The Billboard Collection by Artecnica – a range of products made from recycled large format billboards by advertising agency TBWA.
The range also includes cases in three sizes made from natural cork and lined with billboard ads.
I was very pleased when Ian Cremona contacted me with a link to a post about his living room, which he has furnished with handmade furniture made from repurposed wood pallets. I have to admit I just love it when people do this – I’ve just moved house and am trying to furnish and decorate on almost zero budget right now, so this is a real inspiration 🙂 I have a real soft spot for wood pallet furniture, but I haven’t been brave enough to attempt any so far, so thanks a million to Ian for sharing!
A brilliant bit of recycling – love it.
