Reclaimed Wood Furniture

We love reclaimed wood furniture! The possibilities are endless and the results can be incredibly beautiful.

Wine Farm Upcycles

We love wine-related upcycling. Just think about all the potential to upcycle on a wine farm! We were invited to explore the beautiful Creation wine estate to check out all their wine farm upcycles. Creation is a gorgeous vineyard in South Africa’s Hemel-en-Aarde Ridge. There we met with co-owners Carolyn and Jean-Claude Martin to chat about upcycling on their wine farm.
