Upcycling is the new 'big thing' - give it a try
I appreciate that many of us have been following Marie Kondo's lifestyle instructions over the past 18 months. You know, "if it doesn't give you joy" eradicate it from your household. Honestly, I've had to think carefully about my partner on several occasions.
Conversely, many of us have taken up new hobbies thanks to the isolation of lockdowns. Recycling and upcycling have become very popular with the DIY crowd. Old pieces of furniture are getting a new lick of paint to postpone their retirement for another ten years, ceramic pots and old bottles are being turned into wonderful creations that will transform gardens, and my personal favourite - lampshades. Have you seen what can be done with an old lampshade with a bit of creativity and courage (and Pinterest)?
