Bobbetts Blog No 31,
This week I’m on my own as Easter is nearly upon us and Helen is still knee deep in dogs, hopefully just the fur!
So I’ve decided to do this week’s blog on Upcycling or Recycling some of you may say.
I’m a real advocate of buying things from Charity shops buy and sell sites and even snapping up the odd freebie’s. It all started in my student days wandering around the streets of Farnham looking for a bargain and that has never left me.
Its a good way of getting interesting objects that still deserve to be loved at really good prices, we live in such a throw away society.
My recent purchases have been a lovely cabinet for our newly decorated living room, I was given a beautiful mirror last week and of course I’ve been on the hunt for Chandeliers for my upcycling projects.
Have you seen the latest feed on our social media pages you would have seen.
That I’ve been asked to take part in the The Good Life show and demonstrate my upcycling skills. I was put forward by Charis Williams from salvage sister follow the link to find out more.
Next step was to start adding the spots and wow this took a long time and I started to see spots!!
The black outline really pulled the design together.
After many hours of work the piece is really coming together,
still some work to do on it but you get the idea.I wasn’t sure at first but now I’m loving it.
I love watching money for nothing, restoration workshop and some of my favourite upcycler’s today are hub cap artist.
Well thats it from me this week I hope you have been inspired and I look forward to working with Helen next year.
