About the editor.
As a child, I often found joy in discovering discarded pieces of wood and lost nails on the property of a furniture factory across the street from my house. The sound of the hammer as I built, the smell of the lumber in my nose and the delight on the faces of the neighbourhood kids that received my crafted toys, gave me a sense of purpose and meaning. Little did I know at the time that it would begin a lifelong love of refurbishing and upcycling furniture and home decor, that would eventually lead up to the birth of this magazine.
No matter how hard I try, I can’t seem to find the right words to describe how ecstatic I am to see this magazine become a reality. It has been a true pleasure for me to work with some talented people during the conception and labour of our very first issue. Many thank yous and gratitude go to my amazing team of writers, editors, designers and publisher, as well as my family, for believing in my vision and helping make this magazine possible.
We are truly grateful for all the support that we have received from various circles. Your support encourages us to continue to serve as a voice for those in the upcycling community.
Within these pages, you will find articles written by upcyclers who truly love what they do: they come from countries all over the world, from various backgrounds and expertise. They can relate to it all, and through the approach of this magazine, have taken on the task of “giving back” what they have learned and discovered.
In this issue, we share a fun DIY project to try. We also explore the world of sustainable pallets and how pallet builders are becoming more conscious about recycling materials. We look at shades of blue creations in “Let’s Talk Colour ‘’ and talk about reasons to start an upcycling business in our “In The Business” section. Also, be sure to check out our “Let’s Talk Style and Trends” for tips on staging your beautiful completed pieces. And, of course, you can’t talk upcycling without meeting some talented artists highlighted throughout the magazine.
Starting a brand-new magazine is exhilarating and exhausting. It is quite an exciting experience and challenge, but I am ready to take it on. I hope UpcycledHOME will inspire your creativity and help you find your upcycling muse. Enjoy UpcycledHOME Magazine’s very first issue and please provide lots of feedback to firstname.lastname@example.org!
