Yesterday we took on the task of upcycling two palettes and giving them a new life as stools! We wanted to create cheap, quick and fun recycled furniture to use within our first wasteland project. The aim of the project is to test some wasted spaces around the city of Edinburgh and see if a very simple and quirky intervention such as the stools can enhance and appropriate the space more effectively. We will combine the stools with some clean graffiti paving stencilling to leave our mark on these spaces around the city and we will also document the project throughout the day. Follow us on twitter to see where we are and the date of the event!
Creating simple upcycled street furniture is relatively easy (maybe enlist a helper with a bit of strength!) and is also free or at least cheap! Here’s some photos of the palette process :
