Another London Fashion week has just come and gone. For some, it is an eagerly awaited highlight of their year. For others, a case of from the sublime to the ridiculous! However you view it, one thing that always comes across is the critical importance of accessories to the overall look and feel of an outfit.

How things change! Those of us old enough to remember the 1980 Jona Lewis song You”ll Always Find Me in the Kitchen at Parties will recall that in those days being in the kitchen at parties was perceived as a boring and antisocial thing to do. But now kitchens are often the focus of parties! Granted, they may be bigger and more open plan than before, but kitchens are more often than not the place to be.
In recent blogs we have featured various examples of upcycling i.e. reusing existing items of furniture to create new products. In this article we are delighted to feature an example very close to home!
Our recent DIY Homefit blog on Five things to do with an old kitchen cupboard sparked a lot of interest, so we have decided to do a regular monthly feature on the topic of upcycling. These days many of us are interested in upcycling, both as a means of economising and spending less, and also to reduce our carbon footprint.
At DIY Homefit we were fascinated to hear about a talk by historian Professor Maggie Andrews at The Hay Festival. According to Andrews – author of The Acceptable Face of Feminism: 100 Years of the Women’s Institute – modern women are turning to domesticity “as an antidote to the drudgery of the workplace and the horrors of society.
So the time has finally come for your kitchen cupboard replacement and you will soon be enjoying summer in your wonderful new kitchen. But spare a thought for your old kitchen cupboards! What is going to happen to them? They have served you well over the years …. do they really deserve just to end up in a skip at the local waste recycling centre, or in the garage awaiting Bonfire Night?
