|One of my favourite moments of 2015|
Last year I was fortunate enough to be involved with Gumtree's #UpcycleRevoluation week and created my planter from an old set of drawers. This year, upcycle guru Max McMurdo and Gumtree are back with a Beetle no less!; I'm gutted that due to work commitments and my lack of skills with metal and power tools I was unable to attend this event!

As I mentioned, I was unable to attend this event this year, but Max was supported by a great team of upcyclers and bloggers who helped him to complete the project between April 12th and April 17th.
Best of all, all proceeds from these items will be donated to the Butterfly tree charity to provide classrooms, books, and toilets for the children of a rural Zambian community.
I'm torn with this project this time round though, purely because I'm a petrol head and that part of me is screaming 'nooooooooo', don't cut up that beaut of a car, stick it in the ground like the Bug ranch version of Cadillac ranch in America.....
But the upcycling side of me is like "whoa I need this lamp" :-)

Now, where's that tatty old table gone.......
