Turning something old, worn out, about to be thrown out or maybe already has been, into something pretty, chic and perfect for that space in your lounge.
Shabby chic has boomed in the past few years, bringing a whole new depth to the furniture and design of our homes.
We want to see your furniture transformations. If you have the ‘before’ and after photographs that’s even better!
Along with your images, please send between 50-100 words of how and why you created your piece, and also what it means to you now.
