Welcome to the New Beginnings blog

Hi and welcome to my website. With a passions for vintage and upcycling old pieces of furniture I intend to add useful and of course interesting posts to help you on your travels through a vintage and shabby chic world. Lots of hints and tips on “how to” create your own shabby chic furniture. Also of course, lots of fun pics of items that I come across during my travels. I might even be asking you to help me to identify an item, sometimes a quirky or one off bit comes to light and it’s always good to try and find out what its original use was, and where it may have started its life. I have a couple of bits like this already so keep on watching.
