I’m helping some friends of mine with the refurbishment of a guest house in France, and, as they’re watching their pennies, we’re doing a lot of recycling and upcycling. Recently we found some old metal fencing at a country flea market as cheap as chips, so they bought the lot and we’re not thinking of inventive ways to use it in the guest house. I’ve trawled the internet and have found lots of great ideas.
