Did you catch the MONEY FOR NOTHING programme
on BBC 1 at 3.45pm on Thursday ?
The presenter Sarah Moore who is a designer/maker/writer
visits council tips and grabs things out of peoples cars that
she thinks can be upcycled into something new.
She rescued this chair and footstool from Witley Council Tip.
Using a charity shop find tweed coat along with other fabric pieces
from her vast stash of cloth Sarah
upcycled it into this beauty which now lives cosily in our kitchen.
Can you see the coat sleeves at the front and the pocket on the side.
It even has the coat button holes, they run down side as well.
After deducting the cost of materials the profit of the sale was
given to the man who was putting the chair in the skip in the first place.
Everyone is happy and its a great piece of recycling.
Where else would we have got such a great chair for £220.
It is such a talking piece and I was mega excited watching the programme.
The pictures are what I took with my iphone while watching.
And no I don't keep the remote in the pocket on the side of the chair.
I stash bars of chocolate in it. haha.
