The title's not quite true - this is not an entirely new project. I have been playing at making various things and refurbishing bits of furniture for a over a year now, but 2012 is the time I want to make a proper go of it. I have lots of plans whizzing round my head and it's hard sometimes to stay focussed and make progress, so for the last few weeks I have been trying to home in on what it is I want to do.
The basic idea of the business is that I refurbish or make new things out of unwanted / damaged items - recycling, upcycling, refurbishing, revamping.
Ultimately no restrictions on what I can make out of what, but to start with I thought it was important to focus on a few products. So for the start of 2012 I will be concentrating on
Coat racks - made from old furniture / reclaimed wood
Jewellery - made from scraps of wood and old crockery
Shelves - made from old furniture / reclaimed wood
The website is set up - http://www.rescueandrevive.co.uk , the twitter account is up and running http://www.twitter.com/rescueandrevive , the etsy shop in online http://www.etsy.com and this is the blog http://blogspot.rescueandrevive.com !
So here goes for 2012 - I will use this blog to chat about how things are going
Happy New Year
