Trash to Treasure

25 Sep

‘Tips’ and ‘Resource Centres’ usually have a stigma attached to them – Trash.

Have you ever actually had a good look around your local tip?

Obviously I’m not talking about the huge gaping holes in the earth designed specifically for waste, but usually, your local tip will have a shop or shed selling pieces that can be up-cycled.

It’s amazing what some people render useless!

The before and after images of the wardrobe I have done up is an example of this. I wanted a storage cupboard for the store and didn’t want the standard ‘flat pack’ – boring!

With some fresh paint, some fabric panels and new handles, it’s better than it ever was!

I have received so many compliments on this because it is something different.

All too often we are on the hunt for the perfect piece and totally discount the potential in existing items that may not perhaps have come from a store.

I urge you to push your creativity! There is a far greater satisfaction in making something beautiful again then simply buying something that has been mass produced.

Try it, and I guarantee you’ll become addicted!
