I want to live more sustainably. What better way than maximizing the uses for items in our own homes? I am on a mission to make do or do without. So we upcycled an old sun shelter and now have a new play station in our garden. It was retrieved from the garage and refashioned into a house!
This sun shelter represents lots of typical items in the modern home. It has a specific purpose, used seldom, takes up lots of storage space and when it breaks it gets dumped because it’s more cost effective to replace it than repair it. Why not increase its usefulness?
An old curtain remnant was strung up for the door. What a hit (open, shut, open, shut)! We laid an old cloth down for flooring and various other items have now found a new home inside.
A quick set up, easily maintained and a great activity for a sunny winter’s day at home. Have you got any similar play-based upcycling projects at your place? I’d love to hear about them.
