I am a compulsive 'upcycler' of old furniture and cannot bear to see anything go to waste or get scrapped.
Give me an old anything; house, chair, piece of wood and I will make a plan to turn it into something good. (I think so, anyway!)
I recycled before recycling came into fashion and will continue to do so when it is no longer trendy.

From Scrap to Stylish!
Rather sad auction find...to
Stylish bathroom set!!
From scrap to stylish
This bathroom chair and laundry basket was an auction find – although tatty and dirty the proportions and lines of the items were good and in good repair. The laundry basket had a hole in the top so I decided to cover it to match the chair.
After a thorough scrubbing, a coat of paint was applied to freshen the cane, the seat totally recovered using a lovely shell print fabric with a soft sheen and a matching covering was made for the laundry basket. I finished off with dull gold studs to match the fabric and voila!
