Denim Cushions

These denim cushions are a lovely way to upcycle old jeans! Annemette Magnus is a Danish upcycler who specializes in reusing denim. She was drawn to denim as it is a very strong material. She also loves working with all the varying shades of blue. The patchwork and plaiting techniques she uses were inspired by rag rugs. Read on to find out more about her denim cushions.

Pallet Hope Chest

This gorgeous pallet hope chest is more than just a furniture piece, it’s a success story. We love hearing about upcyclers that have turned their passions into businesses! Candice and Mike Jenness starting making these stunning reclaimed wood hope chests as a way to bridge the financial gap from their day jobs. When their Etsy shop, Looney Bin Trading Company, reached over 300 sales, they were able to make the switch to working full time for themselves.

Drawstring Bags

Drawstring bags are both fashionable and functional. They are essentially dressed up backpacks! We are loving these upcycled drawstring bags by lilidili. lilidili is the small business of Hungarian upcycler Lili. The lilidili drawstring bags are upcycled from old tablecloths, bedsheets and clothing.

Reclaimed Wood Furniture

We love reclaimed wood furniture! The possibilities are endless and the results can be incredibly beautiful. We are particularly impressed by the awesome jigsaw-style of Nick Lopez’s reclaimed redwood furniture. Working exclusively with salvaged wood, Nick transforms scrap wood into gorgeous, functional furniture.

Pinball Birdhouses

Here’s a thought, what happens to pinball machines when they are beyond repair? Upcycler Dan Burfield turns them into pinball birdhouses! As an avid pinball collector and restorer, Burfield sometimes finds pinball machines that can’t be fixed. He gives these machines a second life as pinball birdhouses.

Doorbell Phone

We love a good upcycled Kickstarter and this doorbell phone is just genius. It’s a wireless doorbell mechanism that turns an old rotary phone into a doorbell. The rotary phone rings when someone presses on your doorbell! Read on to find out how this fun upcycle works.
