Today is National Old Stuff Day - a day to appreciate old things! If we can appreciate old things and not constantly be buying new then we are reducing the waste we produce.
I love old furniture, and we have several pieces in our flat,including these two items in our living room
Some people like to refurbish these types of items by sanding them down and painting them in bright colours, but I like the original look!
National Old Stuff Day is also an opportunity to think about old things that you have that you don't want any more and see how you can bring them back into use - perhaps by repurposing an item for another use, refashioning an old item odclothing, donating old furniture to a charity that houses homeless people, giving the item as a gift or donating it to a second hand shop.
Age UK asked their staff to share their most treasured old items, you can read what they said here.
