Ever thought about transforming that rusty old item in the garage into something awesome to impress your dinner guests? Or fancied refurbishing the random old dining chair in the shed but don’t have the tools or know-how? In Upcycling, Max McMurdo teaches you how to discover your inner design genius. Along with where to find great scrap items, and techniques on how to transform them into great designs.

Max shows simple design ideas throughout the book that will inspire you to roll up your sleeves and have a go. Step away from the chipboard and venture out of your comfort zone into a glorious world of doodles, sanding, waxing, stunning colours and the satisfaction of telling people you made that!

You don’t have to own expensive tools or have any previous experience. Some of the projects involve only a few simple steps and can be completed within an hour. Others may take the best part of a weekend and combine several different materials, techniques and tools. Whichever project you choose the most important thing is to try and have fun! And remember design is all about experimenting, learning and not always getting it right!
