"Have you heard of up-cycling before? It’s the process of taking an old or second hand item of furniture, and giving it a whole new lease of life. Whether that’s a new lick of paint, or a re-upholster, it’s a fun way to recycle! There’s no reason why you can’t take an unloved chair from your living room, add a few new cushions, and pop it in the nursery instead."
Visit charity shops

"Charity shops tend to be packed to the rafters at this time of year, as people often have a January clear out or donate unwanted Christmas gifts. Why not visit your local charity shop to see if you can find any bargains for the new nursery? Keep an eye out, especially for baby books, teddies, and soft furnishings. Just make sure to boil wash any blankets you may pick up, and they’re good to go."
