I thought I’d share what I’ve been doing all summer – embracing the Kirstie Allsopp revolution!To read more from this fascinating article, follow this link http://mummywhispererblog.com/2013/09/can-you-really-upcycle-if-you-arent-kirstie-allsopp/
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!
