upcycling furniture

1950’s…

The coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, Polka Dot Bikinis, Rock and Roll, Julian, Dick, Anne, George and of course, not forgetting, Timmy the Dog!

Well, this is the feel of my first project Britain in the 50’s… Very exciting!

I’ve been staying with my lovely family for the last month. Hunting around Surrey’s finest car boot sales! Here I picked up two vintage fold up chairs branded with the royal crown and the stamp of the war department, dated 1954!

So these two chairs and my old desk from primary school (which was old back then!) along with original ink wells and doodles (I made with a compass!) form the first set of furniture. With this optimistic post war 1950’s era, I hope to inject some new life into them.
