Description

In Upcycling Outdoors, Max McMurdo teaches you how to discover your inner design genius, where to find great scrap items, and techniques on how to transform them into great design for your garden and outdoor spaces. Following the success of his first book Upcycling, Max McMurdo has turned his thoughts to the outdoors with this truly inspirational collection of inventive projects, each built from recycled materials and unwanted 'spare parts'. In Upcycling Outdoors, Max explains the basics of good outdoor design and where to find interesting scrap items before delving into Planters & Containers, Outdoor Structures, Eating & Entertaining, Furniture, Lighting & Accessories. Whether you want to create a firepit from bicycle wheels, an outdoor plant display from a painted dressing table or fashion a potting shed from three vintage doors, Max provides invaluable know-how on the tools, techniques and materials required to take you on an outdoor creative journey. Some of the projects involve only a few simple steps and can be completed within an hour, others require a weekend of outdoor activity. Above all, every one of the 20 projects is designed to get you upcycling and recycling as you create designs that bring hours of pleasure to your garden.

Author Biography

Max McMurdo officially started his career turning junk into treasure as a child crafting washing up liquid bottles into spaceships! After graduating from Bournemouth University with a 2:1 in Product Design and Visualisation in 2000, Max fulfilled his boyhood dream and became a car designer in Cologne, Germany. In 2003 he established his business reestore ltd with the aim to design and create a range of upcycled furniture and accessories from objects destined for landfill. By 2007, reestore had won several design awards and featured in many galleries and exhibitions. Max successfully pitched it to the BBC's Dragons Den for investment, and left with investment from Deborah Meaden and Theo Paphitis. Reestore now has a client list that includes The Body Shop and has completed several installations for Google's head offices globally. In 2014 the company won gold at the Chelsea Flower show with Kate Gould Gardens. Max is also a TV presenter. After two series of George Clarke's Amazing Spaces, Fill Your House For Free and Shed of the Year, he is now the go-to presenter for product design and repurposing.
