Upcycling Ideas for Upstyling Furniture & Windows

books on upstyling and upcycling tutorials basic skills

Upcycling is an essential skill that I want to perfect!

Growing up in a poor family meant that I quickly learnt to do things myself. I didn’t have the money to buy my doll new clothes so I sewed her new outfits (you’ll find photos in the About Me section). So, it’s no surprise that DIY interior projects became my hobby when I grew up.

I therefore dedicate this page to my upcycling projects that I’ll be completing with the help of the two books below.
