Upcycling, Recycling, Upcycling Recycled and Recycling Upcycled for Living and Home Decor

Whew!  That is some title, huh?  I thought that my new found love for upcycling the recycled was a pretty popular topic.  It seems to me that upcycling clothes, upcycling decor, and upcycling furniture is about half of what is driving Etsy and Pinterest.  Now this is not at ALL statistically proven.  But for us Artists, upcycling and recycling is pretty relevant to our day to day worlds. At least it if to mine. There is a reason I love Goodwill.  I just keep finding great stuff to incorporate into my art or to sell!

I am not alone.  At one time, Etsy featured a top producing Artist who literally trash picked bicycle wheels, converted them and chains into extravagant chandeliers which she proceeded to sell for thousands.  Kudos to her for recycling and saving our landfills!

This upcycling blog post is one of many to follow.  I am curious, how many of you upcycle?  How many of your recycle products into your artwork?  How many of you trash pick in the name of art?  Upcycle, Recycle or Reuse - in which way do you use these methods to create your work?

I will start. I have been upcycling bikes from our community trash and selling them through a Facebook group.  Shhhhh, don't tell anyone.  I just hate to see a good bike get dumped in the trash! :)  Look forward to all your comments and shares!
