Upcycling storage

Most outdoor spaces want some form of storage. Old furniture such as bookcases, filing cabinets, shelves and drawers make great storage solutions. For portable storage, different sizes and shapes of buckets, bowls and baskets can be used. Rather than throwing out tins and jars that food was in, clean them thoroughly and use to store smaller items.

Revamp old tables and chairs

A table can be upcycled and used for not only an outdoor area dining table, but also a workbench, drinks counter or desk. Old chairs can be revamped to create seating. Often a fresh coat of paint to match your outdoor spaces décor will make these items like new again.

Create pots for plants

If looking for ways to decorate your outdoor space, plants are a great choice. You will be amazed at how creative you can be by upcycling items as pots. Old coffee mugs, tin cans, egg cartons, crates, car tyres and even old shoes can be used to create pots for plants.
