Industrial Vintage Upcycling - Feast Watson Re-Love Project 2014

I love the way blogging inspires me to be more creative and over the years my home has definitely reaped the benefits of DIY-ing. I also love the challenge of taking something old and breathing new life into it, giving it a new purpose and having it look like it just left the workshop floor. So when I was invited to be a part of Feast Watson's 2014 Re-love Project I was thinking you had me at "Dear Tina"!!. 

The project runs for the next month and a half with the challenge of taking an old and unwanted item and re-loving it up to its future glory!. I've chosen to upcycle an old reclaimed factory pallet and a vintage tripod and my fellow participants have chosen fabulous items and I can't wait to see the fruits of their labour in the coming weeks!. 

Feast Watson will also be auctioning off the upcycled items with the proceeds going to the Salvos Stores commencing 24th of July - love it!.

So for me it's time to get creative... over the next week I'll be sharing my inspirations and ideas for my design and posting my journey and "how to" as the project progresses. I'm excited - wood finishes are a new endeavor as I'm usually a paint and go upcycler so this will be a fresh DIY challenge for me!. 

This image is definitely serving as inspiration at this early stage... I'm loving the Industrial Scandi aesthetic and the overall colour pallet of greys/white/black...mind ticking, more to come!.



  1. Hey Tina. I'm loving your pieces soooo much - can't wait to see them finished!
    And I totally get your sentiment about blogging encouraging extra creativity. I know it really pushes me to think outside the box and work that little bit harder.

    1. Oh Kristine thank you so much, thrilled you like them!. So excited to see how your bedside tables transform in the coming weeks... your DIYs are always so inspiring and out of this world fabulous!. :) x Tina

  2. What a great project - can't wait to see how it works out. I've not experimented much with wood finishes either. Good luck! Fiona x

    1. Thank you Fiona :)! It is fair to say I'm ridiculously excited about getting my hands dirty and upcyling these goodies.. I noticed you had featured a similar table in your Home Design Mag spread which I was really excited to see!. x Tina


I just love reading comments, thank you for taking the time and for stopping by!
