Upcycling Initiation Challenge



I have some really fun news and some really exciting news.  You want to hear the exciting news first, huh?  Here goes...

Shortly after my move from Michigan to Florida, I was offered a partnership with Tampa Upcycle, a sister company to The Upcycle Exchange in St. Louis, MO. And I accepted! The official announcement was posted here if you want to check it out.

This may explain my whereabouts over the last couple of months; it's been kind of a crazy whirlwind around here.

To welcome me :ahem: Morgan and our awesome Upcycle fans are hazing me with an Upcycle Initiation Challenge.  You can get in on it too!

Here are the super easy rules:

  • Head over to the Tampa Upcycle facebook page, and Like the photo of the object that you want me to upcycle
  • The photo with the most Likes will be the one that I will upcycle.
  • I will have to use at least 80% of the material, and will have 30 days to complete the project.

Here are the upcycling choices:


An old beaded light kit

Country fabric

Old trophy placque


All three choices are pretty terrible, but regardless, I am SO ready for this challenge!
