Decorate Your Home Using These Gorgeous Upcycled Pieces Made From Scrap

What Makes It Awesome

Saniya’s DunIYa’ is the ‘upcycled world’ of Saniya Agarwal, a lover of everything creative and art. She upcycles what are otherwise escrap items to build pieces that are nothing short of enchanting.

Stands and side tables made using wheels of old bicycles, old PVC pipes, and some wire wound up together – doesn’t get environment-friendlier than this! One of our favourites, Saniya took her mom’s trousseau trunk and converted it into her own ‘rockstar upcycled table. Bottle crowns collected from clubs and restaurants across the city, and some help from her friend and you have the trendiest table in town! Make your table decor a few notches classier by creating your own set of DIY bottles centre piece or corner detailing. She has painted glass bottles metallic gold or silver from inside and used wax to create that sophisticated effect. Perfect to get you your compliments and better than what you can fetch from an interior store!

The  abstract wall art are created by pressing in glass pieces between glass panes and then infusing them with a burst of colours. Aren’t they just perfect to spruce up white breezy walls? Weave away and make your own mats and rugs using strips of newspapers. We love the idea of dropping in your personality to your abode to make it even more homely and ‘you’. She has re-designed an old window with discarded cans, sticks and net from an air conditioner to make the dresser that a girl would simply love (it also organizes accessories effectively).


Upcycle erasers, pens, rulers, pencils of varied colours and shapes, arrange them in quirky ways into decorative pieces or table tops, to add tonnes of colourful zing.
