It’s not just flipping furniture that has won a huge following.
Upcycling old pieces with completely different décor is gaining interest among clever home renovators too.
One creative Bunnings fan has certainly shown exactly how it's done.
She took to social media recently to show off her imaginative design, using an old lounge destined for landfill.
“We had one of these two-seater papasan chairs on our balcony… bought from Bunnings," she wrote on the Bunnings Mums Australia Facebook page.
"The cushion became all mouldy and gross from the rain… so we put our thinking caps on."
What she came up with was labelled "genius".
How she did it
Flipping the damaged Bunnings lounge chair on its head - quite literally - the woman pulled together a one-of-a-kind stunning light installation for her backyard.
Using the chair frame as the base, she painted it black, turned it upside down and attached decorative lights and dozens of artificial flowers and greenery.
Her innovative thinking produced a beautifully whimsical light installation for the outdoor deck she’s working on.
“We decided to use the base and make this for our back deck. I was the brains… my husband was the muscle,” she said.
Using string lights from Bunnings and artificial flowers and greenery from Kmart, she designed a stunning talking point in her alfresco area.
'That's so clever'
Her inspirational piece caught the eye of plenty of up-cycle fans online, with dozens saying her creation was "unique".
“I have so much admiration for people who have the vision to turn garbage into a work of art. This is fabulous,” one wrote.
"Love it and the vision to think outside the square,” added another.
“Super creative and such a conversation piece! Well done,” added a third.
Others suggested more lights would take the piece to a whole new level.
“Looks fantastic. Fairy lights would look great too. Well done. Beautiful,” one said.
