At Sass & Belle we admire those thrifty folk who can turn an old, unwanted item into an upcycled treasure. So we tried our hand at it and we’re pretty pleased with the results (even if we do say so ourselves). It’s easy to be crafty and kind to the environment and we’re going to share with you our results and tips. This week we took some old unloved books and turned them into art. Yep…that’s right. Art!
Our Sales Executive Liza tells us how she got into upcycling vintage teacups into beautiful teacup candles after noticing that her Nanna had many unused cups just sitting in the cupboard. She decided she needed to think of a way to get those beautiful pieces of china out there and enjoyed. Here we’ll tell you exactly how you can make your own!
You all know by know that we love the vintage look here at Sass & Belle. Many of our product collections have a real vintage, distressed or shabby chic look to them. What you may not know is that we’re also big fans of the upcycling trend, and we always jump at the chance to give an old piece of furniture a new lease of life when we are dressing our trade show stands and Sass & Belle shops, and also for our own homes. Better still is when we get to use own products in the process, particularly our great range of hardware.
