Reloved magazine issue 44 is out!


Having grown up by the sea in Cornwall, I have a great fondness for days spent on the beach combing the shore for washed-up treasure, which is why this month I’m delighted to showcase the talents of three artists who’ve taken inspiration from the coastline to create beautiful works from repurposed materials (page 32).
The countryside too can offer some real gems for upcycling and reloving. Take a look at our feature to see how the rusted shells of former shepherd’s huts are being converted into beautiful spaces, providing a quaint extra ‘room’ in the garden (page 22).
When the sun is shining there’s nothing like hosting a get-together in the great outdoors, and we’ve got some fabulous ideas to make it go with swing.
For a unique talking point, have a go making a cocktail bar from a vintage suitcase (page 60), or create a thrifty tablecloth using lace doilies and a handful of bright dyes (page 73). Alternatively, check out our revamped bicycle basket to have a truly portable picnic in style (page 50).
Finally, thank you to everyone who took part in our recent survey. Many of you would love to see more of our readers’ amazing upcycles, so turn to page 16 for our new Reloved by You page. If you have a project you’d like to share, send us photos via social media and you could win a year’s subscription!
