#UsedParty Twitter Party Alert

Recently I up-cycled gorgeous vintage lamps to a more glitz and glamour version. I also purchased a couple wingback chairs that I plan to reupholster for a classic modern set in my living room. Used and up-cycle have become a regular part of my vocabulary so it’s no secret that my BIG deal personality came though as a bit of a DIY Diva.

  1. I took the Quiz and one day I was a Diva (which is fine with me) and the next week I was a Hoarder (a happy one). Is it possible that you may change depending on how you feel that given day? 🙂

    2. Are their any laws when selling and buying electricals , would I be liable if someone hurts themselves with something I have sold that was faulty? even if I had no idea it was faulty?
