Creative Upcycling

All pieces by RE:SOURCE Vintage are items that have been rescued from landfill and brought back to life by people in the local community who are looking to progress or rebuild their lives. RE:SOURCE provides a safe and inclusive environment for people to gain confidence and learn new skills in a bid to reduce the effects of social exclusion in the county.

RE:SOURCE Vintage range enables volunteers and trainees at RE:SOURCE to take part in a creative process from start to finish. Each item of furniture has been cherry-picked, from a comprehensive collection, for its individuality or a charming focal point. The volunteers and trainees decide what styling and colours to use to enhance the furniture and then get to learn about furniture restoration techniques such as sanding, waxing, French polishing, oiling, painting and stencilling.

Here is a great example of a beautifully imaginative creation by our longstanding volunteer, Simon; this everyday wooden coffee table has been taken to a new level with the addition of a soft blue/grey paint finish, then its pretty detailing carefully enhanced in sage green and gold highlights.
