Upcycling locally!

Like if this guide is helpful

I love up-cycling old items and its the easiest way to get what your after quick without having to look around loads of shops, I simply type in what it is I am after and look at distance nearest to find other locals in my area selling that I wouldn't of known about before ebay! there's no delivery charge and can often pick up really cheap items that are perfect! I recently brought a dressing table/bedside table bedroom furniture set for a bargain price of £16!! and I was perfect for my new bedroom! saved a hell a lot of money!
ideally if your not sure what your after then search every category and change the preference to distance nearest first, that way you'll find all the treasures locally to you which are within reach, buy some paint and you have a brand new project saving a lot of money this way means you can splurge on other items, I also recently did a wardrobe by buying Laura Ashley wallpaper and some paint an not one person has a clue it was a 2nd hand wardrobe! works a treat.
