I’m going to do this post a little backwards.  

Let me show you what I made…. 


Blocks. Wonderful curvy, curly blocks! Seriously… This has to be my favourite upcycled project yet. The kids absolutely love them. You can set them up so they look like a roller coaster – or lay them flat like a maze. 


So can you imagine what it was before I turned it in to this set of blocks? 

I’ll give you a clue. 

Here’s another project I made with it. 



A weave board! 

Got it yet? 

Here they are taking it apart and washing the pieces. 






It was a rocking chair! 

Even better, it was a free rocking chair! 

We took it apart, cleaned up the pieces, cut (some of) them with a hand saw, sanded them and added a beeswax finish. 

Super easy and they are now our favourite set of blocks!

I’ll draw a random name at the end of March. 

What have you upcycled lately? I’d love to hear about your creations! 

Thanks for reading and sharing!
