Instead of throwing old furniture or other items, such as filing cabinets, away or simply putting up with it, why not give it a new life with a bit of a facelift? Upcycling is a creative and thrifty way to revamp your tired homewares, not to mention it’s a cost effective way to give a whole new purpose to an empty corner of your home.
