Although there are some updated elements, the structure still sits within the original stones of the farmhouse, and is topped by a pitched roof similar to the one that would have sheltered the old Scottish house.

SWG3F_20151127_1681Today and tomorrow marks the culmination of a Scotland-wide, eight-week social media campaign to encourage people to upcycle and re-use furniture.

“Re-using things – whether that be through upcycling, donating unwanted items, or buying from a re-use store not only saves money – it is one of the best options for the environment since it prevents waste going to landfill and lowers the carbon emissions associated with manufacturing new items.”
