I've got something unusual in here.
-I don't know if you'll be able to do anything with it.
How do you make celebrity money for nothing?
I've got a house full of rubbish!
Entrepreneurs Sarah Moore and Jay Blades
are searching celebrities' houses...
-I don't even know how we got in here. Let's get out of here.
..to find tip-bound items to transform...
-I had no idea they were even here.
..by having a really good look around some celebrity homes.
This is unbelievable!
With the help of some of Britain's best designers and makers...
And celebrity faces, we're on a mission to turn celebrity trash...
Into hard cash.
But what will our celebrities think of the transformations...
They look beautiful, don't they?
Wow! What a... I want it back!
..and how much money has been made for their charities?
-I've got £606 here for your charity.
To kick us off, Jay's in south-east London.
He's here to rifle the rubbish of professional garden designer
and landscaper Danny Clarke.
Danny is well-known for presenting his own series,
The Instant Gardener,
as well as hosting coverage of the iconic Chelsea Flower Show.
He lives in a top-floor flat
that's furnished with all manner of eclectic items,
but where does he keep his rubbish?
I've been really looking forward to Jay coming here
because I think we're going to have a lot in common,
cos I know that he's into upcycling and I'm the same.
I hope he does find a few little nuggets but, having said that,
I just hope his eye isn't that keen, if you know what I mean.
-All right, Danny, it's Jay.
-All right, Jay, I'll let you in.
Jay's here on the hunt for two items that he can transform
-and, hopefully, turn into a profit.
-How you doing, Danny.
-Hi, Jay, how are you? Great to see you.
-Is that one of yours?
-It is. That's my garden.
-But don't tell anyone, will you?
-It's looking a bit bleak!
Mum's the word. Your secret's safe with us.
-Come in, come in.
This is nice, what you've got in here. It's a bit eclectic, isn't it?
It is. That's why I was looking forward to you coming around.
One thing that sticks out to me is that.
I love bright neon colours and that...
You've got a plant there as well. Look at that!
Yeah, don't want to be looking at that
because that's looking a bit sad, so we don't want to be going into that.
I thought you were a gardener!
Let's talk about the neon light instead, shall we,
and how lovely that colour is?
-How long have you been doing the gardening?
-I started off maintaining gardens.
Then, from maintaining gardens, I always liked design,
so I enrolled at a college and did a design course
and that gave me the confidence to be a designer.
It's a bit like interior decorating. Someone wants their interior redone.
I go in and I redo people's gardens.
-So, you're an interior decorator outside.
Well, I hope YOU followed that.
Right, Jay, let's get the trash search started.
-Here we are, Jay. This is the spare room.
What's the story behind the trunk then? I've got my eye on that.
I thought you might have your eye on that, somehow!
-I've got to have a look, haven't I?
-He was a client of mine.
-He basically didn't want it.
-He was throwing that out?
He was throwing it out.
This was a few years ago and, yeah, just goes to show.
I could see a few things in here that I've got my eye on.
-I want to have a...
-I tell you what. Let's go and look in the other room.
-I've got something else to show you.
-OK, all right.
With the trunk staying put for now,
there's plenty more places for Jay to rummage.
I do like this. Leather suitcase.
Looks like he's hiding all the good stuff away from me.
There's a nice chest underneath there.
Maybe we should move away from the antiques
and look for something more up your street, Jay.
It's very nice.
-So, Danny, in this room...
I've had a good little look, but this is the baby. Not the suitcases.
-No, no, not that.
It's not getting used, is it? What's the story behind that?
That's my dad's old rocking chair.
-Yeah, it's from the '70s.
Since Danny moved house,
he's struggled to find a place for his dad's old chair.
-You can have that with my blessings.
-Thank you, sir. That's very kind.
Jay is in luck.
This rocking chair - it's a rocking chair that's not rocking any more.
It's just stuffed in the corner, but the potential it's got is amazing.
Little bit of effort, it's going to be a winner and rocking again.
Jay has his first item in the bag - Danny's dad's old rocker.
From smart suburbia to a rural retreat just outside Bristol.
Sarah is about to begin her rummage for rubbish
and eagerly awaiting her arrival
is wildlife TV presenter and author Miranda Krestovnikoff.
Miranda's one of the original presenters
of the BBC nature programme Coast.
Good girl! Come on then!
She's also a roving wildlife reporter on the One Show.
Bring it here.
A keen upcycler herself, she is very excited about Sarah's arrival.
Drop it. Good girl.
Sort of excited and slightly terrified.
We're having building work done at the moment,
so the place is an absolute tip, but I'm sure she'll find
something exciting and go, "Wow, that's going to be amazing!"
So, I think there's quite a lot of stuff lying around
that she'll probably quite like.
Two celebrities with a love of the great outdoors,
but will Sarah match Jay
in the search for two transformable trash items?
-Hi, how are you doing?
-Really well. Nice to see you.
-Come on in.
Your dog is so sweet.
Miranda's home was originally built in the 1930s
and was derelict when she and her husband, Nick,
bought the place 12 years ago.
It's now home to their two children, along with German shepherd Nanook.
Oh, sorry, we'll keep the noise down.
-So, sitting room.
-Lovely room, isn't it?
-Yeah, very light.
-We're very lucky we face the sun.
-I see you bring your work home.
I just love collecting weird stuff to do with animals
and also, if I do talks to children, it's really fun to say,
"And this is a mammoth bone and this is a deer antler", or something.
Yeah, that is a mammoth bone. And feel the weight of this.
That's a molar from a mammoth, and that's a small one,
so imagine a having a mouth full of teeth like that.
That's quite frightening.
You'd soon get sick to the back teeth with a mouth full of those.
This room is beautiful but, clearly,
there's not much in here that's going to be leaving, is there?
I'm really sorry.
Yeah, I do have a couple of tricks up my sleeve, so come this way.
Brilliant, thank you.
Heading outside, Miranda has a hideaway shipping container,
full of old cast-offs.
Though I'm not sure how you get THAT up your sleeve!
-Come on in.
-Oh, the Aladdin's cave.
-It really is, yeah.
This is ten years of junk and building materials.
It's going to go one day,
but you're welcome to pretty much anything you can find in here.
Sarah can't pass up an opportunity for a really good rummage.
No, don't sit down!
Could be good.
Lots to look at but nothing to be found. But all is not lost.
Miranda has an idea.
So, there's this beautiful old bench.
There's a bit of a story behind this one.
The last but one house that we bought, this was in the garden
when we bought the house, but it's just been sitting there.
It's actually a really beautiful thing.
The fact somebody took the time to design something so beautiful
that may have just been in a park or something, makes it really special.
And you can tell it's heavyweight
and it's definitely got some age to it.
If you can make something really special out of it,
-you're welcome to it.
-That's thrown down the gauntlet, hasn't it?
-I love a challenge.
-On the condition that you make something
really, really good, you can have it. No pressure.
To rescue that and revamp it, I'd love to.
-Could be exciting, couldn't it?
-You can tell immediately, can't you?
-Give me your bench!
-Well, you got excited about it,
so, that would be good. I'd like to see what you could do with that.
Sarah's first item is the wobbly garden seat.
Look at that. What a beautiful bench.
Miranda might not be keen on doing it up,
but I think it's a challenge I just can't wait to take on.
We're up and running. But what will she do with that old thing?
Back in south-east London, having thoroughly searched Danny's flat,
Jay still has one item to find and there's just one last place to look.
-You've got some goodies in here for me?
-I have got some in here for you.
-I think you're going to be very impressed.
-Not a lot.
With limited storage space inside his flat,
Danny rents a storage unit a short distance away.
Cor blimey! I see something straightaway.
-This is a headboard.
-It's a headboard?
-Yeah, but you can't have that, I'm afraid.
-Oh, is it?
-Yeah, so put your eyes away.
-Oh, man! What about that?
-Is that part of the headboard as well?
-This is the end bit, that's the headboard.
Gardening stuff, you can't take, but there's a lawnmower there.
-You can take it.
-You're very welcome to it, yeah.
Don't be too enthusiastic, Jay. Keep looking.
I'm sure you'll find something else.
-Is that a strimmer?
-That's a strimmer.
-What's it sitting on?
-It's sitting on a table.
-On a table. Is that what that is?
-Yeah, sitting on a table.
The story behind that is that's a table
-I couldn't get in the flat cos the legs won't come off.
-It's been made in one piece.
-So, you're quite welcome to have it.
A solid pine table that, luckily for Jay, wouldn't fit in Danny's flat.
Time to dig it out. Shouldn't be a problem for a gardener.
-There's quite a bit here.
-There is quite a bit.
Jay, it's just the table we're taking. Jay, come back!
You've got so much gardening stuff. It's unbelievable!
-That's a solid bit of table, isn't it?
-It's lovely, isn't it?
-I must admit, I really like it.
-Strong as well.
It's had all of that on top of there.
-Yeah, so you know it's going to last.
I'll take this off your hands, cos you said I can have it.
-You can have it.
-That's very kind.
-And I'll move all this stuff back.
-I'll see you later.
-I'll be down the pub.
Jay's found his second item - a solid pine table.
Wow, what's not to love about a tried and tested table?
Solid as a rock.
All it needs now is a little bit of creativity
and then it's ready to go again.
I'm so happy with this one.
-Danny, nice one for having me.
-Great meeting you.
And I'm sure you're going to make great use of the stuff
-that you've taken from me today!
-Taken? You GAVE it to me!
-Oh, did I?
-Yes, you did.
-OK, I'm looking forward to seeing the end product.
-And you'll be back shortly, I take it.
-Course I will.
-Take care. Take care, mate.
-All right. Be lucky.
-Yeah, and you.
I'm really looking forward to seeing what he comes back with.
It makes my mind boggle cos I think the guy's very imaginative
and I'm sure he's going to put an interesting twist
on the items that he's taken away today.
Jay's hunt is over.
He's taken Danny's dad's rocking chair and the pine kitchen table.
What's he going to do with them? Who knows?
Back in Somerset, Sarah is still searching for a second item.
Can you do anything with a futon?
I'm sure things could be done with it
but I'm wondering if you've got stuff that's really broken.
-Not the futon then.
-Not the futon.
-I thought you'd go for the futon.
She's already laid claim to the wobbly seat,
so there's just one more item to find.
-Here's the kitchen...
-..where we spend all our time.
-Is this the heart of the home?
You look and see a room like this
and think you've got to be spending time...
Also, we sit around the table and you can look out onto the garden
and the pond and there's loads of wildlife out there.
I'm a very outdoor person as well.
I'd spend my life outdoors, if I could,
so we try and bring as much of that into the house as possible.
Miranda has one last thing that she thinks might be worth "chicken" out.
There's this. It's an old door.
There was a big workshop here when we moved in
and, obviously, we just took it off,
but it's just used to protect the wood underneath, keep it all dry.
-I don't know if it's rotten though.
-Maybe some of it has gone.
That's probably gone but, certainly,
-a couple of the planks seem to be OK.
-Shall we risk it?
Well, we could pick it up and see if it falls apart.
OK... Wow! That middle timber's gone, hasn't it?
The bits on it that are looking solid should be reusable.
The hinges are great.
The door furniture is beautiful so, if you're not going
to do anything with it, I'd love to try and save it.
-If you can lift it out of here in one piece, you can have it.
-If you want it, yeah.
-I'd love it. Thank you. Pop it back down.
Oh, that's surely at death's door! What is she thinking?
SARAH TAPS ON THE WOOD
Is that profit knocking?
I'm not sure, because this door is in a terrible state,
but there are some elements about it that are absolutely beautiful,
so I'm going to take the best bits
and I'm going to give this just one last chance.
-Thank you for today.
-It's been really fun!
I've had a really good time.
I never thought I'd end up in your laurel bush
but that was one of the best bits for me.
-Thanks so much.
Are you coming with me? Come on then.
She completely surprised me with the things that she liked.
The things I thought she might take, she wasn't that interested in.
So, it's going to be quite exciting when she comes back.
Sarah's picked a rickety park bench and a discarded old door.
Will she be able to transform her chosen trash into treasure?
In a rainy Wolverhampton, Jay is about to start work
on Danny's old rocking chair.
So, what's the plan, Jay?
I got this rocking chair from Danny.
I love rocking chairs, but this one is brown.
There's nothing wrong with brown, but it's a bit dated.
What I'm intending to do with this is give it a zing and a pop,
add some modernisation to it, but also, adding that Danny twist to it.
Ah, that good old zing, pop, Danny twist!
First things first.
I'm planning to upholster the seat and also the back.
But what I need to do first is take the chair apart
to see what I'm working with.
Danny's rocking chair is actually a model
known as the bentwood rocker,
and it's claimed the style originated in Austria
in the mid-19th century.
For me, this is my favourite bit. It's picking the fabric.
So here, you've got brown against brown. Hmm, doesn't really work.
If I was to pick something that was lighter, that contrast just works.
Some lovely birds on there. Or lovely grey. That works sometimes.
Or even, look at that red. That's popping!
But, for me, and a link back to Danny, cos he's a gardener,
look at that.
That is so cool.
Definitely have to use flowers, cos he's a gardener.
Before Jay can re-cover the seat, the old material has to be removed.
To comply with fire safety regulations,
the old foam is replaced and a layer of Dacron is glued to the top.
Dacron gives you that extra bit of comfort,
that nice little layer, so when you sit down, ooh, it's nice and cosy.
When upholstering, tension is everything.
I don't mean being on edge.
I mean how taut the fabric is pulled across the surface of the seat.
That's all done now.
Normally, what I like to do
is have a bit of something different on the back,
so I'm obviously going to go for a contrast,
and I'm going for a yellow.
The yellow is in the same fabric but, against the brown...
..I think that's going to look awesome.
Yeah, that's the one.
And, in a moment of inspiration, Jay's spotted another opportunity.
I'm going to be spraying this, which is part of the chair,
and I'm going to be spraying it in a beautiful vibrant orange,
which is inspired by Danny's lamp in his flat.
Let's get going, eh?
For the piece de resistance, a splash of subtle neon orange.
I do hope you know what you're doing, Jay.
Jay's spent £42.07 on the fabric, foam and spray paint.
If his enthusiasm is anything to go by,
this chair will be rocking again in no time,
provided he can put it all back together again.
While Jay does what he does best,
Danny's table has made it to east London,
ready for its very own makeover.
And who better to take it on than Daniel Heath?
Daniel has a passion for all things salvaged and sustainable.
He's an award-winning wallpaper designer
who loves adding an artistic flair to bespoke furniture.
My style is quite illustrative.
There's always a lot of drawing in my work, whether it's going
onto textiles or wallpaper or onto surfaces or furniture.
Yeah, it's not really work. It is my passion, it is my life.
I think anyone who makes anything has to try and live it.
Yeah, I really enjoy it.
but I reckon this table's going to put him to the test.
-Hello, Jay, how are you doing?
-How you doing, Daniel? You all right?
I'm good, thanks, I'm good.
Jay's calling to agree a plan of action.
Yeah, OK. Yeah, right.
-I think it's going well.
Well, I'm glad that's sorted. So, what's the plan?
Jay had mentioned this idea about making it look different
when it's set than when it's unset, which I think is fun.
So, what I've got is just an enamel bowl
and I'm just going to lay these out,
just for a guide, and see if it works.
Jay's nifty idea is to screen print onto the table top.
He wants the pattern to include the place settings
as part of the design.
Daniel has already cleverly covered the top of the table
with plain brown paper,
which allows him to draw without damaging the surface.
Don't know whether I'm going to do something geometric on this
or do something nature-based.
I'm quite into natural things at the moment.
But obviously it's more complicated to do that with a stencil.
I'm just going to try drawing a few basic ideas.
Judging from these leaves,
I'd say we're starting with the nature-based idea.
I think I've got my mind set on doing some stencilling
instead of creating a dedicated silkscreen.
I'll still screen print the ink through
but the actual pattern will be hand-cut out of the stencil,
so it will e a complete one-off.
Nice floral design, but do you know what I think would finish it off?
A little bit of fruit.
I'm just drawing some lemons.
As always, a step ahead of me, Daniel.
But isn't that a lime?
They look like limes cos I'm using the green pen,
but that's just so that I can differentiate between the lemons
and all the foliage that I've drawn,
because the lemons are going to be a different colour.
They're going to be yellow.
Jay and Daniel agreed a budget of £280
to turn around Danny's old table.
But when they come to sell it,
will that leafy design prove that money really does grow on trees?
With Jay's items well under way,
in West Sussex, it's time for Sarah
to turn her attention to Miranda's old garden bench.
Well, it's a super chunky garden bench.
It's old and it's just not fit for purpose any more,
and I'd really like t give it an update that will bring it
in from the cold and make it into something you have inside
but is luxurious, welcoming and beautiful.
First job, take it apart.
What Sarah's actually hoping to make from this rotten old bench
is an upholstered seat, suitable for use inside.
Guess what - they're really tight. They are going to be all rusted on.
I can tell already.
Do we have a plan B? A saw, perhaps.
I don't think this is working. Oh, Bramble!
I don't think she's going to help.
Having eventually dismantled the bench,
it's time to reveal its old green paint.
It's going to be a fine line exposing
as much of that green as possible,
but leaving the lovely patina of the bench.
I certainly don't want to make it look new.
Ooh, no! That would be wrong!
Just want to check how it's going to look.
I've got a bit of clear wax on here. It's made it really bright.
The wax has sealed in all of that lovely colour.
It means, if it's in somebody's house, they can dust it.
It will be clean and nice to live with.
Not all of the original wood turned out to be rotten,
so some of it cam be reused once Sarah's cut it to size.
To put the bench back together,
all that's left to do is drill some new holes for the bolts.
Ah, that looks really sweet!
It IS sweet, Sarah, but isn't that just like the bench
but a bit smaller?
Right, upholstery time.
Fireproof calico - very important.
As well as fireproof calico, Sarah's wrapping the salvaged slats
with upholstery foam filling, so at least it might be comfy.
Is this going to work?
I'm actually going to upholster each slat individually
because I want it to look cool
but I also want it to look reminiscent of an old garden bench.
I don't think you've got any problems there, Sarah.
-I think it's going to work.
-Well, let's hope so.
Sarah's spent £100 on materials to convert the bench
into an indoor mini bench, otherwise known as...
a chair, I suppose.
With Sarah taking care of the garden bench,
it's time for Miranda's other item, the large wooden door,
to receive some love and attention.
And who better to lavish that love
on a mouldy old door than EJ Osborne?
Woodworking warrior EJ uses simple tools
and traditional methods to create handmade utensils and furniture
that will stand the test of time and become more beautiful with age -
So, what I do is mainly obsession, lots of love
and a little bit of a job, um, yeah.
And a lot of fun.
I don't know what I'd be doing if I wasn't doing this.
I think this is all I ever want to do
and I can't possibly imagine a life where I don't make stuff.
EJ loves a challenge,
but will the door that Sarah salvaged be a step too far?
Oh, my goodness!
Oh...what have we got here?
It's a really old...
-EJ, hi, it's Sarah.
-Hi, Sarah, how are you?
-Really well, how are you doing?
I'm just standing here looking at the massive door!
-Sarah, what is this?
You were right first time, EJ.
It's a massive rotten old door, but Sarah has a few ideas.
Um...well, that may not work.
Well, don't worry.
I'm sure EJ has something special up his sleeve.
I'd better get cracking, Sarah, cos there's a lot to be done.
-OK, we'll catch up soon.
-All right, bye.
So, I'm going to make a dressing screen
and I'm going to chop all that wood up and I'm going to use it
as decorations in the style of shingles.
Wooden shingles are thin, tapered pieces of wood,
usually used to cover roofs and walls of buildings.
First things first.
All those rusty nails need to be removed,
as well as the metalwork, which is carefully taken off to be reused.
As these are bracket hinges,
they have these lovely readymade holes.
Somehow, I think I may make some kind of rack.
Something through here, going across, like a pole, maybe.
You can take your clothes off and hang them over.
These...I'm going to use if it kills me.
Having taken the door to pieces and discarded all the rotten bits,
EJ's left with a surprising amount of usable timber
which, given a light sanding and cut into manageable lengths,
is then sliced thinly, ready to make into the shingles.
Look at that! Oh, my goodness!
-You see, I thought...
-HE BRUSHES THE WOOD
..that the inside was going to be less interesting
than the outside but, actually,
not only is it fresh and clean, but it's a woodworker's dream.
If you say so, EJ.
Sarah has agreed a budget of £150
for EJ to create his glamorous dressing screen,
but with lots still to do,
will he be able to bring it in on budget?
In Wolverhampton, it's time to catch up with Jay
and discover what's become of Danny's dad's old rocking chair.
What I had was an old brown rocking chair that wasn't being used,
and what I've done is I've added a hint of me
with a touch of Danny and a splash of colour.
When Jay found the chair, its rocking days were over. But now...
..Jay's bold design has brought this old rocker centre stage.
The modern floral fabric compliments the original wood
which, after a buff and polish, has given it a sophisticate update.
A splash of neon orange accentuates the curvaceous design
and a hint of yellow on the back brings real personality.
But will it have buyers flocking to snap it up?
It's looking beautiful.
Well, I'm glad you think so, Jay.
You've just got to find somebody else who thinks so, too.
And that someone is the owner
of Complete Lighting & Living in Essex, Amanda.
I really love Jay's rocking chair
and I think we'll sell it really quickly.
That's great news.
Jay's first item is sold, but how much profit has he made?
In the East End of London, Jay's second item,
Danny's redundant dining table, was left with Daniel.
Well, at least we know it's been dusted down.
I'm here to pick up Danny's table from Daniel.
I had a few out-there ideas but I wonder if he's done them
or if he's come up with his own.
I had fun with this table.
It came to me and there wasn't really a lot we could do
to take it away from being what it was,
but we could add some fun and some colour.
I don't think it's going to be what he expected,
but we'll see his reaction when he arrives.
Danny's table was a solid but dull piece of furniture
when Jay rescued it from storage.
Take a look at that though!
It's certainly anything but dull.
Daniel has sanded down the original surfaces,
pained on a geometric design in pastel shades
and given the table a light, bright, energetic vibe.
-Woohoo! Now, that...that's a party. How you doing, sir?
-You've had fun with this one, haven't you?
-It's an ice cream.
-What kind of ice cream is that?
-You know, you're on holiday in Mexico.
Having a good time.
Never mind the dancing, Daniel.
What happened to the floral design you promised?
Yeah, we had a bit of a disaster.
I had sort of an organic vine pattern
that I was drawing on it and we cut it all out the stencil,
-printed it and it just didn't look right.
It just looked too...boring.
What it does is it makes me smile, and that's good.
-I think furniture's supposed to do that.
-Yes. And unapologetically fun.
-The other thing is, have we come in on budget?
-We have, yeah.
The budget was £280 and it was just a lot of sanding, but it was fine.
-We had to buy the paints and things but, yeah, good.
-I'm sorted. All right.
-I'm going to see you soon.
-Yeah, see you soon.
I'm glad Jay found the fun in that piece
and knew that we were just trying to do something that was fun
and I hope it brings someone some joy anyway.
So, it's good.
See, that's what it's all about - having fun.
If you're not having fun, there's something wrong,
and Daniel definitely achieved that with that table.
Wasn't what I was expecting but it's everything what I wanted.
Jay was quick to get the fun Mexican-themed table online.
As soon as the pictures were posted, he had a buyer all lined up.
And where else would a Mexican-themed table be more at home
than a Mexican-themed restaurant
in Mexican-sounding Guildford?
Owner Miguel couldn't be more pleased.
Absolutely love the table.
I think it's really nice - the fact that it's colourful, big,
it fits up to six people -
so I think it's going to bring a lot of people in to sit down together.
I do like a happy ending.
Jay's done his sums and it's time to let Danny know
how he got on with his rocking chair and table.
I wasn't surprised by the items he took away
because he's got beady eyes
and I think he wanted to take away everything.
I was happy for him to take the rocking chair
and I was happy for him to take the table
and I'm really looking forward to seeing
what he's going to do with them.
I hope Danny's partial to Mexican influences,
otherwise this could be a bit awkward.
-How you doing, Danny?
-I'm doing very well. How are you?
-I'm very good.
-Come on in.
-All right, mate.
-How you been, Danny?
-I've been keeping very well.
-How about you?
-I've been as busy as a bumblebee in the summer, mate.
-I like that. I like that.
-I thought you might.
-Pleased to hear it.
-So, do you remember your rocking chair?
-Oh, wow! Yes.
This used to be your father's rocking chair, if I'm not mistaken.
Used to be my father's rocking chair. I really like that.
You've done a great job. I like it.
So, I'm pleased to tell you that I've sold this one
and I got a profit of £182.93 for you.
-Just for the rocking chair.
-The other item you gave us was the table.
-Do you know what I like about that?
-Cos you've been adventurous.
Yeah. The colours are just, ooh.
I'm pleased to tell you that we've sold this table as well.
So, with the two together, you've got a combined profit of £252.93.
Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
I've got to get it out of my pocket before I walk away with it
because you won't get your furniture back, but you'll get the money.
-And I'll give you the shrapnel.
-Give me the shrapnel as well.
What you going to do with the money? What charity is it going to?
-The money's going to the Brain Tumour Charity.
Yeah, well, basically, I had a sister
-who died from a brain tumour a few years ago.
So, I thought it would be a nice gesture to give it to there.
-Now, sir, it's been a pleasure working with you.
It's been a pleasure seeing you again, and you've done a grand job.
-You take care and I'll see you soon.
-See you again.
Take care. Bye.
I tell you what - he's done a fantastic job.
I'm really impressed and I'm a bit envious, actually,
cos I wish I could have thought of those ideas myself.
Jay was able to sell the dining table for £350.
With Daniel's costs taken off,
it left a profit of £70.
The rocking chair sold for £225.
Minus Jay's spend,
it gave him a profit of £182.93.
Added together, Danny has a total
of £252.93 to donate
to the Brain Tumour Charity in memory of his sister.
With Jay having successfully raised money for a great cause,
it's Sarah's turn to impress.
Has she managed to turn Miranda's old rickety garden bench
into an upholstered beauty?
I think it looks lovely but I really like pink and green.
I'll have to see what you think.
When Sarah claimed the old garden bench, it was rickety,
rusty and ready for the dump.
..it's a cut-down and compact beauty.
By shortening the salvageable wooden slats, Sarah's created
a single seater that's a perfect fit for a space indoors.
The rough aesthetic of the original metalwork
contrasts with Sarah's selection of fabrics.
The graduating shades of pink and fetching florals give a softer,
homely edge, and a layer of wax has sealed in the patina
and original paintwork.
It's unique, but will the buyers love it?
There aren't many of these around, are there?
And I'm not sure that's a good thing because I think there might be
a bit of a trend here - the lovely padded bench.
It's got some lovely floral fabric. It's got a bit of charm and I hope
somebody else is going to really like it and give it a proper home.
Time to take a few snaps to advertise it online.
Having achieved a new benchmark in garden furniture upholstery,
will it be snapped up?
And will there be any profit to return to Miranda?
With work on the garden bench complete,
Sarah's in Frome to catch up with EJ
and see how he got on with the big old rotten door.
Really excited for Sarah to arrive.
I really hope she's going to like this.
Spent quite a lot of time on making something that was completely rotten
and riddled with nails into something that's really lovely
and usable so, hopefully, she'll like it.
I'm here to see EJ and to find out about that big old door.
I'm really excited cos it had some potential
but I reckon EJ's had a real task.
A rotten old door, full of nails and found in undergrowth,
may not be everyone's idea of raw material.
But for EJ...
..it's a match made in heaven.
Somehow he's managed to use every bit of salvageable timber
to create this classy dressing screen,
sanding, sawing and slicing each plank
to reveal a unique woodgrain pattern
that he could arrange in a shingle mosaic.
The original hand-forged metalwork was rescued and put to good use,
finishing the whole thing off with a creative hanging rail.
-Is that it?
-That is it.
-Oh, my God, that is amazing.
-Hi, how are you?
I'm a lot better now! Talk me through it.
How much of it is door and how much of it have you added to it?
So, my theory - when in doubt, when it's really bad,
just slice it all up. So, that's exactly what I did.
I didn't expect such a contemporary lovely-looking thing.
-It's fantastic! Can I look round the back?
-Yeah, come and see this.
-This is the extra ta-da!
So, a little branch hanging rack for a towel
or some clothes or something like that.
It's absolutely beautiful, isn't it? Was it a nightmare?
Well, mainly, I spent most of my time plucking out nails
and here's a very few of very many that I plucked out.
Because they're so corroded,
they look like they'd have been a nightmare to get out of this.
They're so old that... These are good ones.
But when you pluck them out, they kind of, they're very corroded.
-Yeah, they're all snapping off.
Well, I'm going to hand these back to you.
If you want to recycle those, that's great.
It looks like EJ's nailed it this time.
But with only £150 to play with, has he nailed the budget too?
Luckily, I like plucking out nails.
I find it very relaxing, so that's what I spent most of my time doing.
-But, yes, budget, bang-on.
I think that that is a very special piece of furniture for that budget,
so I really appreciate you doing that.
Cannot wait to see where it ends up.
Don't you just love it when a plan comes together?
I'm really, really happy that Sarah's happy.
It was really, really challenging but it was really fun as well
and I'm absolutely over the moon that she loves it,
so, yeah, really happy.
Well, that is a fantastic thing to pick up.
I literally couldn't imagine anything better
happening to that old oak door. EJ has totally nailed it.
I've already done that gag.
Not only has EJ created the screen,
but he's only gone and sold it as well to a regular client of his.
With a pocket full of cash, Sarah's back, just outside Bristol,
to show Miranda what became of the garbage from her garden.
I'm so excited to see what she's done with these items.
Ever since she left, actually, I've been really poring over
in my mind about what she's transformed them into.
I bet she's done something really amazing and creative,
so very, very excited.
Amazing and creative - you could say that!
I've got everything crossed for you, Sarah.
-Hello again, how are you?
-Great to see you.
-I'm really well. How you doing?
-Come on in.
-Show me what you've got.
-I'm a bit nervous.
Right, moment of truth.
Well, you certainly get the prize for having the heaviest rubbish!
Oh, I'm so pleased! Is that the only prize?
I think it might be a game of two halves, actually.
I've got pictures of both of them to show you
but, first of all, the bench.
-I thought it might be a nice idea to bring it in from the cold.
-Oh, my goodness me!
-It's been turned into...
You know I hate pink, don't you?
When I walked in here, I thought, "No pink anywhere, is there?"
-You're either a lover or a hater.
I really hate pink and I hate flowery things, but it's fabulous!
So, that's actually been sold to a lady who owns a boat
-and it's made £125 profit.
I didn't think that would be up your street,
but what I'm going to show you next is a beautiful dressing screen.
-It's reused all the iron work that's on it.
-Oh, that's incredible!
-That is stunning!
I would definitely, definitely have that in our house.
Can I pay for you it or have you sold it already?
EJ actually shared pictures of it when he'd made it
and it sold on his social media with a £250 profit, so I have got...
-..£375 here for you.
That's amazing! Thank you so much! And I'm so delighted
that they've both become really beautiful pieces as well.
I don't even have to ask, where's that going to then?
Well, this is going to Marine Conservation Society
and they're doing amazing work, so many different things -
protecting the waters around our coastline. Thank you so, so much.
Brilliant. I'm so pleased you like the results, one way or the other,
-and it was lovely to catch up.
-I think I got away with the bench.
-You did. Bye.
Both of the items have become really, really beautiful things,
and I'm very excited, actually,
very, very excited. The screen is utterly beautiful
and something I would dearly love to have in my own house.
It's amazing. They've done such a great job.
Sarah sold the revamped garden bench for £225.
Taking off the cost of materials,
that left a profit of £125.
EJ's wooden dressing screen sold for an impressive £400.
Minus his costs gives a profit of £250.
Altogether, Miranda has £375
to hand over to the Marine Conservation Society.
Sarah and Jay saved four bits of celebrity junk.
With the help of some of the best and brightest designers
in the country, they've all been provided with a new lease of life.
With the superb help of EJ and Daniel...
We've managed to salvage four unwanted items
and give them a new lease of life.
And send some much needed money to two very worthy charities.
Sarah visits the home of zoologist and presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff, where she is tempted by a rotten old door and a garden bench, while Jay unearths a rocking chair and a pine table from presenter and gardener Danny Clarke. Woodworker EJ Osborne and designer Daniel Heath are on hand to help Sarah and Jay turn their celebrity cast-offs into cash for some very worthy causes.
