Introducing Jacob Leaf (Ngāpuhi), aka The Upcycler. With a magpie eye for a stray pallet lying on the side of the road or a recycling centre bargain, he’s all about thrifty wins and sustainable solutions when it comes to DIY. He’ll be bringing a range of easy weekend projects where he transforms the discarded and unloved into the cool and covetable.
First things first, every honest DIYer needs a place to keep track of their upcoming projects – and what better place than the heart of the home – the whiriti (fridge). Make use of boring whiteware surfaces by transforming them into inspiration stations and checklists to write your to-dos. This quick and easy project will bring order to a busy life – plus no one ever knicks off with the chalk like they do with a pen.
Cost: $20 excluding Resene products.
