I’m Gareth. This is my side hustle. Having spent many years pondering ‘what can I do for myself’, I eventually stumbled across the world of interiors and furniture upcycling. In doing so, I found a hobby that helps me to switch off from day-to-day pressures and to channel some creative energy.

By day I work in higher education. By night I am either on Instagram, faffing with interiors and furniture or reading about it.

I live in a little house on the edge of The Peak District and I am having great fun interior faffing. You are very welcome to stick around and watch how it evolves, as my tastes change and my confidence increases. I promise to try to make it more interesting than watching paint dry!
