Lifestyle with Lisa Pearson @mummywhisperer - Upcycling!



 

Lisa Pearson our lifetsyle correspondent was tonights guest on Drivetime , Lisa told us about;
Upcycling.  She writes:

I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing all summer – embracing the Kirstie Allsopp revolution!
I love the whole crafting/upcycling revolution that has been birthed by the recession.  I believe that creativity is good for the soul, even if you aren’t a natural at it.  Plus it SAVES MONEY!  Money which can be spent on other stuff, or that can keep us out of debt.  So it’s a good plan!
The question is, how to go about it if you don’t have a natural eye or lots of experience?
Rather than start small, I decided to ‘go for it’ and see wether it is possible to create a vintage inspired Hairdressing salon/spa in Hertfordshire in 4 months, from as much upcycled stuff as possible.  I think seeing Kirstie at Britmumslive, may have meant I got a little carried away!
