‘Something old into something new – how to give your vintage find a fresh lease of life’
The Lady

"Upcycling is about taking something old, vintage, treasured or possibly even broken, and giving it a new lease of life by turning it into something new.

It’s a thrifty way of decorating and enhancing your home that avoids waste, but is also stylish, and here, Ellie Laycock shows you how you can make truly beautiful objects from things you might otherwise have thrown away.

Be inspired by the ingenuity of her projects – including turning old tin trays into chic magnetic noticeboards, using teapots as quirky planters, transforming a vintage fruit crate into a rustic bedside table and converting metal jelly moulds into tea light holders.

All of the 35 projects have clear instructions and artworks to guide you on how to make them, and a helpful techniques section will teach you any skills you need to know."
