‘Kirstie’s Fill Your House For Free’ promotes upcycling of furniture and is all about ‘Loving Free’ rather than ‘Free Love, as Kirstie Allsopp says in each episode. There were in total 4 episodes in the Series 1 which was aired in Summer 2013 and I can’t wait to be watching Series 2 of the ‘Kirstie’s Fill Your House For Free’.
It is truly amazing what beautiful furniture can be found and used again ! Kirstie’s advice is to look through umber of online resources such as Freecycle community – freecycle.org, gumtree.com, ilovefreegle.org….which is exactly what I did and it didn’t take me long to found a coffee table on gumtree !!! I must admit the piece wasn’t for FREE but for a BARGAIN PRICE of £20! This piece only proves the secondhand is definetly not second best.
