It is the summer holidays and entertaining children, working and keeping on top of the housework is proving a little challenging.  Time seems to be lacking.  However during my time on Facebook over the last week or so, I have found some fantastic and creative ideas for re-using or upcylcing waste.   So just in case you don’t follow Green Aspirations on Facebook I thought I would share them in a post.

Upcycling a reel, which had cabling on it, into a table/bookshelf, very clever and space saving too.  Go across to Pinkxstitches blog to see how this was created.

If you want a project to make a little girl very happy, try getting an old cabinet and converting it into a play kitchen.  I found this on Mum’s Business Facebook page.

As the weather has been nice recently what about upcycling an old tyre into a see saw for a young child.

Found this on Upcycling’s facebook page.

If you are not into spending too much time on your re-use projects and love to bake then have you thought of using a trouseur hanging to hold your recipe book?  This was shared by BuzzFeed on their facebook page.
