THE art of upcycling – reusing furniture or materials in a useful, often creative, way – has been experiencing something of a revolution recently. TV programmes such as Kirsty’s Vintage Home and George Clark’s Amazing Spaces are fanning the DIY flames, and more consumers are opting for something other than high street fare. There is a pocket of south east Scotland that offers a treasure trove of places to explore.
