I've been collecting bits and bobs to upcycle for many years, long before it became fashionable and magazines were published on the subject. With the current interest in making old things new there is lots of advice available and specialist products on the market. This has spurred me on to make a start.
There is the bedside table which was one of Paul's school wood work projects. It's been in use since it was made and looking rather tired. The before picture..... is above.
the lower pictures are my dear mother in law's Morco sewing box. The fabric inside is coming out as it is falling to pieces and it will be rep added and lined after it has be painted. Haven't decided whether it's a complete paint or not.
