Home (South Africa) - - RENOVATION -

TBy These days, the old adage that one man’s trash is an­other man’s trea­sure couldn’t be truer. What you might throw out as junk could be just the thing your neigh­bour has been look­ing for…

For many years, clas­si­fied web­sites have been hotspots for on­line bar­gain-hunt­ing. Now there are a grow­ing num­ber of Face­book groups that sell any­thing from • Pho­to­graphs se­cond-hand baby clothes to an­tique fur­ni­ture. With this trend in mind, we set our­selves a chal­lenge: trans­form a lack­lus­tre bed­room into a snazzy space for less than R2 000. While our pur­chases came to a lit­tle more than R2 000, we sold sev­eral items which put R1 000 back in our pocket. In the end, we man­aged to makeover a room for just R1 380!
