When I first began painting old furniture, the fact that I was recycling something was quite incidental. As I have progressed and rescued furniture from skips and front driveways, it has actually become very close to my heart. How wasteful of resources and sometimes craftsmanship we can be.
In my latest Etsy Edit, I have gathered together some pieces from fellow British based Etsy sellers. All pieces have been reclaimed, reused, recycled and hopefully ultimately will become reloved
This beautiful desk is made from reclaimed scaffolding board and galvanized steel. You can find it here at Inspiritdeco. They are based in Manchester (where I was once awoken by an earth tremor).
This lovely 80s filing cabinet, has been stripped back and polished. You can find it here at Go Antique. They are based in Birmingham (which was my teenage stomping ground)
This beautiful desk is made from reclaimed oak with green resin inlay detail. You can find it here at Wicked Boxcar. They are based in London, (which has become my home town).
These gorgeous wooden hearts are made from recycled roofing boards. You can find them here at ruby Rhino. They are based in Lichfield (home town of my old friend Phil)
