Upcycling: 20 Creative Projects Made from Reclaimed Materials

Max McMurdo

First published October 2016

Ever thought about transforming that rusty old ladder in the garage into something awesome or fancied refurbishing the random old dining chair in the shed but don't have the tools or know-how?

In Upcycling, Max McMurdo teaches you how to discover your inner design genius – learn how to find great scrap items, and techniques on how to transform them into desirable items. Simple design ideas throughout the book that will inspire you to roll up your sleeves and have a go. Step away from the chipboard and venture out of your comfort zone into a glorious world of designing, sanding, waxing, stunning colours – and the satisfaction of telling people you made that!

You don't have to own expensive tools or have any previous experience. Some of the projects involve only a few simple steps and can be completed within an hour, whereas others may take a weekend and combine several different materials, techniques and tools. Whichever project you choose the most important thing is to have fun and remember design is all about experimenting and learning and not about always getting it right!
