IN FOCUS: SOMETHING OLD SOMETHING NEWBy Nicole Kow
I’ve recently had the pleasure to collaborate and work with HGTV Asia. If you haven’t heard, Home and Garden Television (HGTV) is a channel that focuses on what other than home-related programs that entertain, educate and inspire. The American-originated channel has in recent months found its way to Asia and is currently available on Starhub Channel 437. If you stay tuned to the channel, you might catch a segment during the commericals featuring a walkthrough of a Nic & Wes Lifestyle Home.
Besides that, I’ve have been working with them on a new webisode series featured on their various digital platforms titled Something Old Something New. Each webisode of Something Old Something New will feature how you can transform old items into restored upcycled pieces that will sit nicely within your home. So the next time you see potential in something you might be on the verge of throwing, you might want to rethink and hold on to it. This issue I will feature the two webisodes that are currently available online.
Episode 1: Shadowbox Table
This is a quick and easy project to turn old wine crates into a piece of furniture that is not just functional but displays your favourite memories in it.
Episode 2: Mod Podge Chair
Chairs can sometimes need a little sprucing to bring it back to life. This is the project for just that! With just fabric and Mod Podge, turn your old beat-up chairs into unrecognizable pieces that will fit your home perfectly.
These projects are perfect for the weekend and can be done by yourself or better yet rope in the family as a way to have fun and bond. If you would like to tune in to the other videos, subscribe to the HGTV Asia Youtube Page and it will alert you on the latest videos including my webisode Something Old Something New.
