Upcycling Projects

Upcycling Projects
Here at The Plastic People, we are big fans of DIY projects and sustainable home improvements. We get incredibly excited when our customers want to breathe new life into old items to prevent waste!
Take a look at these photos to see what our customers have done in the past and get some inspiration for your own upcycling projects.
Vintage Coffee Trunk Table
Refurbing coffee tables is easy with acrylic. A cut to size panel can be placed atop a range of different home items to create a bespoke and stylish addition to your living space. Previously, customers have used coffee trunks, storage crates, and other square items.
Upcycled Picture Frames
When one customer came to us with an idea to improve an old picture, we thought they were a genius! The addition of a few cut to size plastic mirror panels helped revitalise an old picture frame and turn it into a feature home d├ęcor piece. They even painted the frame to give it a more ‘distressed’ aesthetic.
Bedroom Furniture
Furniture protectors and table top covers are the perfect addition to old home items. If you have a scratched and stained bedside cabinet or chest of drawers, add an acrylic panel to make the product look brand new!

If you want to try your own upcycling project, please check out the rest of our customer stories and our Pinterest page for inspiration. And if you do have a go, don’t forget to send us a photograph. We would love to see it.
