Pull Up Your Draws!
We have been fascinated by the amount of attention that drawers have been getting lately – this amazing idea http://theupcycleblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/11/drawer-to-night-stand.jpg of using an unwanted, lone drawer and turning it into a book cabinet is truly genius!
There’s also the very cool use of draws in the garden, forget installing costly raised garden beds, use pieces of furniture that are beyond salvage! http://tracya.hubpages.com/hub/How-to-Build-a-Garden-Box-out-of-a-Dresser and http://adesiretoinspire.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/dressing-up-yard.html
At Green in Mind we are passionate about rescuing even the most shabby of shabby chic furnishings but our ethos of reusing and recycling means we are happy to repurpose materials. Our most recent creations have included the fusion of two or more items and we’ve chopped and changed units, drawers, legs and counters to create a whole new range of absolutely bespoke and unique pieces.
Our upcycling techniques range from back breaking, unforgiving hand painting onto furnishings
To overlaying our furnishings with bespoke designed digital prints
Whatever your project, whatever your budget, there are hints, tips and inspiration at our website www.greeninmind.co.uk and if you are interested in an upcycling project with our Chief Upcycler, Gary Port-Lincoln, drop us an email and we’ll be delighted to explain our bespoke upcycling process.
