The competition is on!

Get a piece of your furniture upcycled by one of the Design Doctors and it won’t cost you a penny.

12 Nov 15

Over the last few weeks we’ve been showing everyone just how much potential there is in second-hand items.  

We know there are lots of people out there who are a bit worried about giving it a go or maybe have a piece of furniture they would love to have upcycled but it means a lot to them and they don’t want to risk damaging. Well we’ve got the perfect competition for you!

If you’ve got piece of furniture that you would love to have upcycled enter our competition and one of our Design Doctors will upcycle it for you for free.  You’ll be able to pick which of our three Scottish ‘Design Doctors’ – professional upcyclers Emily Rose, Treemendus and Very Vintage , you would like to have upcycle your piece of furniture and they work with you to make sure they create something that works in your home.

After the entry deadline closes we’ll create a short list and then it will be up to the public to vote for which one they would like to win.

The winner will have their piece of furniture collected and sent to the Design Doctor of their choice. The Design Doctor will carry out an initial consultation before agreeing the look with the winner. The item will then be upcycled and returned home.
