Happy National Upcycling Day
As you will know this time last week I was up in London at the Gumtree #upcyclerevolution Event, where we announced the launch of National Upcycling Day. I took part in the Upcycling Blogger Challenge and had a fantastic night mixing with fellow upcyclers and supporters of the upcycling community. ( sorry ‘upcycling community’ sounds like a support group for people with skip diving addiction but we really are all very normal and cool !)
I had upcycled an 1980s orange pine computer cabinet into a dressing table and it was so lovely to hear such positive comments about my work. The winner of the challenge was super clever, he had upcycled a drum kit into toy storage and a lamp for a playroom using comic wallpaper but all the entries were genius. They are now all up for sale on Gumtree so grab yourself something quick smart. It was lovely to hang out with the King of Upcycling Max McMurdo whose enthusiasm is just so contagious. Here are a few pics that Gumtree took that night, look how happy upcyclers all are!!
