Over the past month, I’ve been getting my DIY on at Interiors Addict and Reno Addict HQ. It’s involved a lot of firsts, the most frightening being that of using an electric sander! However, I can happily inform you that all body parts remain intact!
However, the reason for doing this hasn’t been my want for a new job (I’ll stick to writing, thank you very much!). Rather, I, along with seven other design personalities, have been upcycling for a cause, as part of the Feast Watson Re-Love Project.
Now in its third consecutive year, the project sees a range of pre-loved timber furniture items given a new lease of life, as they are transformed into unique statement pieces. I’m upcycling a table, but that’s all I can tell you at the moment! Once the pieces are completed, each designer’s creation will be available for sale on eBay from 8 to 17 July, with all proceeds donated to the Salvos Stores.
There’s some very impressive people taking part (I’d be lying if I said I didn’t completely freak out when I found out who!) including iconic furniture designer and maker, Mark Tuckey, leading interior and event stylist, Steve Cordony and Real Living editor-in-chief, Deb Bibby!
