It's lovely to start a Wednesday with a feel good story and this is most absolutely one.
Most of you know that I have a passion for up-cycling old design into new and exciting pieces so when I spotted this charity based organisation in the UK - Out of the Dark, it made me real happy.
They roll this way:
"Out of the Dark is a charitable social enterprise that recycles, restores and revamps salvaged furniture as a means to train, educate and employ young people from disadvantaged backgrounds."
I must admit I'm a weeney bit jelous of the fact that they can find such designer 'trash' - we in little ol' NZ are hard pushed to find such amazing designer finds. It never stops me form looking though!
Look out for a post in the future about up-cycling a piece of your own. I have had such amazing feedback from my home being in Your home and Garden (NZ) that it calls for a big ol' share. Don't be shy about sending me your photos too of pieces you have saved from the dust pile - let's be loud and proud!
