My name is Liz, and I like to upcycle furniture. I built this house here about 10 years ago, and the crash happened. Ran out of money to furnish it, so I used to find bits and pieces of furniture. Brought them home, sanded them down, and painted them, and it works. A lot of the time they’re actually much better quality than the furniture that you can buy at the moment. I think it’s a great hobby. You can make something out of nothing, really. It’s my time-out. I upcycle because I love it, and I think it’s a great way of reusing items that might otherwise be thrown away.
