Find ‘100 per cent original’ unique upcycled furniture unlike anything found on high street at Sheffield charity shop
This camper van themed chest of drawers is just one of a whole new range of ingeniously up-cycled furniture which is now on sale at one of the city’s charity store.
The imaginative range of furniture transformations, which are for sale at homeles s charity Emmaus Sheffield’s popular Cadman Street second hand superstore, turn the everyday into something special.
The items are proving to be extremely popular with customers looking for a quirky approach to interior design.
" Our companions do all the work ourselves and use 100 per cent recycled materials to create some truly remarkable makeovers,” said Emmaus Deputy Manager Charley Fedorenko.
“This is a project that fits in completely with the Emmaus ethos of sustainability and recycling and the items are selling very quickly.
“We are taking items of furniture that might not have make very much if they had been left untouched but after being given some TLC and a fresh approach to restoration they are proving very successful. They are all 100 per cent original and unlike anything you would find on the high street.”
