In an audacious experiment Kirstie Allsopp is taking over a shop in Glasgow and stocking it with furniture that we’ve sourced for free. From beautiful high end items like marble fireplaces and stunning lights to simple but stunning items like wardrobes and tables – just amazing pieces that have cost nothing. Each week we’ll help 2 families transform their homes and show them that with some savvy sourcing and clever upcycling ideas it can be done for a lot less than it would to buy new.
Here’s how it’s going to work. Salvage expert and designer Charis Williams will help source the items. She knows the tricks of the trade to get amazing pieces of furniture for free from sofas and wood-burning stoves to old school chairs and dressings tables. Then inventor and furniture hacker Max McMurdo and artist and upcycler Lee Baker will help Kirstie transform them into amazing unique pieces.
With plenty of practical tips, inspirational advice and some simple solutions Kirstie wants to show second hand is not second best in the coolest, most audacious and relevant transformation series on the planet.
