Either way, to my mind it has more class than up-cycling.
Now I think I have introduced Rob before. Beautiful hand decorated bone china is his thing. You can find his lovely work here.
When not doing lovely things with china Rob and Andy are masters at the art of EBaying, and their latest project was to re-purpose some elegant mid century chairs, a bargain on eBay, with a mix of vintage tapestry panels and some panels that Rob and his sister had worked themselves.
