Upcycled go kart

My husband knocked up this go kart last weekend and I was very impressed that it is 100% upcycled, so I thought I’d share it.

The wooden frame and metal handle were picked up from hard rubbish some time ago. Actually I just remembered we’d used it once before – Christmas Day 2008, for picnic down by the beach.

The funky orange vinyl seat is from a 1970s highchair we were given. It wasn’t very practical for our daughter but I was adamant that we should keep it for some other use. The seat belt is actually an infants lap belt from a flight on Jetstar and we accidently took it with us – at least she’ll be very secure in it!

The basket at the back is from a broken plastic toolbox.

All in all a very clever design I think – now we could just do with some nice weather to try it out!
