Get your gaff upcycling.

Get your gaff upcycling.

My pal reclaimed this chair from a pub that was closing  and simply added an old sheepskin and  natty cushion. Its battered to hell and, sure the stuffing is escaping a bit, but it has years left in it being solidly made of leather and wood. You could send it for repair, but i think this piece’s story is written all over it – it’s comfortable and cool. Who knows who may have sat on this beauty?
This beats a boxy Ikea newbie for me any day, and who doesn’t appreciate something free?

This is also in the same household – an old display unit filled with found objects. A really personal way of decorating your pad.

I predict many people will be appropriating this idea…i know i will be.
