Custom Upcycling can take on so many different forms. It can take that old brass tap and turn it into a very functional coat hanger. That old jam jar can become a funky cocktail glass. There is very little that can not be used in someway and turned into a beautiful piece of custom upcycling. We love to take old, unloved items and give them a new lease of life. Why buy that hideously expensive table that everyone else has, when you can own a fabulous, one of a kind piece of custom upcycling that wont beak the bank.
Our custom upcycling artist is Kevin Hanlon and he has been doing it for years as a hobby. here are just two examples of some of the custom upcycling projects he has done over the years.
The first example of a project that we undertook for ourselves a few years ago is, we had an old press or dresser. It was sitting there doing nothing. In the meantime we were looking to by a new vivarium for our son’s pet Bearded Dragon. We found that while what was on offer was good, it was boring and would entail us buying a new stand for it. So Kevn, our custom upcycling hero, had an idea to use the old press that we already had and to add to it. Long story short, he added some perspex, chicken wire, plaster and some platforms. Resulting in a now 6.8ft x 6.10ft double vivarium with storage and a gorgeous home to some very happy reptiles.
We not only do custom upcycling but we take commission upcycling projects also. It could be something small, like taking old album covers and creating a unique, one of kind piece of wall art or table.
We will sit down and discuss all aspects and ideas of the commission upcycling project with our client to ensure that, not only are we happy with it but also that the client is completely confident with their decision to use us for the project.
