If you’re looking for upcycle design you might find several designs made from washing machine drums. Just like the colorful ‘Upcycled washing drum lamp‘ by Willem Heeffer. These drums proof to be very useful for creating upcycle design.

What about not only upcycling the drum but also the whole casing and other parts as well? That is exactly what Jerusalum-based industrial designer Antonina must have thought.

She took an old discarded washing machine and took it apart. Then she designed three pieces of furniture to make out of using these parts. The project is named ‘I Used to be a Washing Machine’ and can be found on Instructables with complete step by step instructions.
If you watch the video you can see how many parts have possibilities for creating upcycle design. And the instructions guide will show you how to make a chair yourself! Not easy, but doable.
