Upcycling and Recycling Ideas for Building Materials

posted 22.01.2013
This blog article has come about from my recently found obsession with Pinterest.  For any one who hasn't yet 'pinned', Pinterest is a fabulous new social tool, which allows members to pin, store and share images, links and ideas on different boards.  These can be anything (for example, my personal boards vary from recipes to infographics to craft projects marketing tips to clothes I want but could never afford).  It has also proven a fantastic source of inspiration and ideas for Recipro.  I've found a lot of really interesting upcycling and reuse ideas, for surplus and used building materials, household items and other random products.

As you know, Recipro love to see building materials being reused wherever possible rather than being disposed of, and we love hearing about all of the wonderful ideas and uses our members find for building materials.  We have a dedicated board for upcycling and reuse ideas, which can be found here.  If you'd like to contribute to the board, then just follow us and request to be allowed to pin (email me at rebecca@recipro-uk.com if you need to).  We've also got boards on our news, items on the website, green news, construction news and  some rather random stuff!

Here are some of my personal favourites:
