LUMI Wine Wall

Behold the LUMI wine wall, easily one of the most gorgeous wine displays we’ve ever seen. The LUMI wine wall is the invention of Dale Rorabaugh of Sonoma County, California. Dale and his wife Lorraine make their own wine and wanted to find a way to repurpose retired wine barrels. Inspired by the gorgeous natural arch of the wine barrel staves, Dale thought to transform them into wall mounted wine holders. A completely harmonious upcycle, what once held wine holds wine again.

Two-Tiered Succulent Planter

Happy Earth Day Upcyclers! Earth Day is special to us not only for bringing environmental issues to the foreground, but also because it marks the anniversary of Upcycle That.

It’s no surprise that we love succulents so this upcycle seems especially fitting for our 1 year anniversary.

Vertical Pallet Planter

This vertical pallet planter was the first project we did together as Upcycle That. Completed over a year ago, the succulents have had time to settle in. This is a great project. As you will see, pallets and succulents work well together.

This vertical pallet planter can be tackled at an intermediate upcycling level. You have to be prepared to sand, but there is no nailing/sawing/drilling required. Your main weapon of choice will be a staple gun.
