Now, I like the look of your rubbish.

0:00:030:00:05

How do you make money for nothing?

0:00:060:00:09

I love a little rummage.

0:00:090:00:11

The answer could be hiding in the 30 million tonnes of household waste

0:00:110:00:16

we throw out every year.

0:00:160:00:18

I think I might be able to make something out of that.

0:00:180:00:21

That's why entrepreneur Sarah Moore

0:00:210:00:23

wants to get her hands on things before they hit the skip.

0:00:230:00:28

That's wartime.

0:00:280:00:29

I'm a passionate buyer, user and maker of old stuff,

0:00:310:00:34

and I've turned that passion into a moneymaking business.

0:00:340:00:37

I make new stuff out of old stuff and I sell it for a profit.

0:00:370:00:41

And with some of the country's elite designers and makers...

0:00:420:00:46

-That was brave.

-Oh, the potential!

0:00:460:00:48

..she can transform her finds into desirable...

0:00:500:00:53

A work of art.

0:00:530:00:55

..valuable...

0:00:550:00:57

THEY LAUGH

0:00:570:00:58

..and hopefully saleable items.

0:00:580:01:02

Holy Moley!

0:01:020:01:03

If Sarah is successful,

0:01:040:01:06

then she can hand the profits back to the very people who had no idea

0:01:060:01:10

there was cash to be made from their trash.

0:01:100:01:13

Thank you. I'm astonished!

0:01:130:01:15

Today, Sarah is in Surrey at the Witley Recycling Centre,

0:01:280:01:32

a final resting place for all our old odds and ends.

0:01:320:01:36

But for Sarah, this is an opportunity to take that stash

0:01:360:01:40

and turn it into cash.

0:01:400:01:42

The sun is coming out and the cars are rolling in here.

0:01:470:01:50

I'm patrolling this place to try and find the treasures that are being thrown out

0:01:500:01:54

and make some money for nothing.

0:01:540:01:55

Sarah has been granted special permission from the recycling centre

0:01:550:01:59

to undertake this venture.

0:01:590:02:01

Come on, then.

0:02:020:02:04

She does so with some style and grace.

0:02:040:02:07

And if it's style she's after,

0:02:070:02:09

perhaps Robert's old sewing machine could add a bit of flair.

0:02:090:02:13

Is that going back in the car or into the skip?

0:02:150:02:17

I was hoping somebody would be able to re-use it.

0:02:170:02:19

It's a really sweet little one, isn't it?

0:02:190:02:21

-Do you remember it being used?

-I do. My mum regularly made clothes for us.

0:02:210:02:25

Really? I bet they went down well at school, didn't they?

0:02:250:02:29

No, I didn't dare wear them to school!

0:02:290:02:32

Luckily I had a uniform you had to buy from a shop in Guildford.

0:02:320:02:34

-No.

-Have you got the key?

-Er...

0:02:340:02:37

Not with me. It's probably at home somewhere.

0:02:370:02:39

I'd really like to have a look inside it. Some of them are really

0:02:390:02:42

collectable, some are just decorative.

0:02:420:02:44

But some of them are hundreds of pounds' worth of Singer.

0:02:440:02:46

But you need a key!

0:02:460:02:48

You need a key! Do you want me to have a quick look in my store?

0:02:480:02:52

Yes, if you've got a key, or a screwdriver, that would be great.

0:02:520:02:55

Do you have a second? I'll be back in a moment.

0:02:550:02:57

Where is Sarah going to find a screwdriver at the dump?

0:02:570:03:01

Ah, perhaps in the tool box graveyard

0:03:010:03:03

you'll find in many recycling centres.

0:03:030:03:06

I'm just wondering if there is a little screwdriver

0:03:060:03:08

or anything we can use.

0:03:080:03:10

You know how to pick a lock, too, Sarah?

0:03:100:03:13

-Very talented.

-That might.

0:03:130:03:14

Give that a go, yeah?

0:03:140:03:16

Harder than it looks, eh?

0:03:170:03:19

Right for tight, loose for left.

0:03:210:03:23

I really want to see in here now.

0:03:250:03:27

Oh, good, now it's stuck.

0:03:290:03:31

Would you mind if I took it away as the mystery machine?

0:03:310:03:35

If it is in usable condition or valuable, or I can sell it for you,

0:03:350:03:38

-can I get back in touch?

-That would be super, yeah.

0:03:380:03:41

-Thank you very much.

-Thank you ever so much.

0:03:410:03:43

-Really nice to have met you here.

-You, too.

-Ooh, the mystery machine!

0:03:430:03:46

Sarah is taking a gamble on there being something usable under there.

0:03:460:03:49

From what you can remember, Robert,

0:03:490:03:51

do you think Sarah will be able to make anything from it?

0:03:510:03:55

I don't want to say a doorstop, because that just wouldn't be appropriate!

0:03:550:03:58

Um...

0:03:580:04:00

Maybe a lamp stand.

0:04:000:04:02

Maybe a beautiful lamp stand.

0:04:020:04:04

That would be nice.

0:04:040:04:05

It really is quite exciting what might be under there.

0:04:070:04:09

I just need to find a key so we can find out.

0:04:090:04:12

Well, I know a couple of boys with a key, and the secret for success.

0:04:120:04:17

This is Josh and Oli.

0:04:230:04:26

Best mates who just love to create.

0:04:260:04:28

The pair thrive on taking disused materials

0:04:310:04:34

and turning them into unique handmade furnishings with flair and imagination.

0:04:340:04:39

I'm Josh and this is Oli.

0:04:420:04:44

And we are Forge Creative.

0:04:440:04:45

I think the main thing we love is designing new products and new

0:04:450:04:49

furniture, where you've got that idea

0:04:490:04:51

and you come into the workshop and just see it come to life.

0:04:510:04:53

The sort of thing we'd like Sarah to bring us

0:04:530:04:56

would probably be something with a bit of character, a bit of age to it.

0:04:560:04:59

I think we like something with a bit of a story.

0:04:590:05:01

Like a rusty bit of metal or a weathered bit of wood, something like that,

0:05:010:05:05

that's got a bit of history and character to it.

0:05:050:05:07

Well, we're not sure exactly what it is,

0:05:090:05:11

although it's probably just a sewing machine.

0:05:110:05:14

We are officially off and running today.

0:05:210:05:23

And Sarah's back on the march.

0:05:250:05:27

She's desperately hunting for our next assignment.

0:05:270:05:32

I'm ready.

0:05:320:05:34

I'll take anything, if I can cut it up and make something out of it,

0:05:340:05:37

I'm going to have it.

0:05:370:05:39

Whoa, Sarah is in the zone.

0:05:390:05:41

Glad someone is.

0:05:410:05:43

Is this time for my afternoon nap yet?

0:05:430:05:45

Luckily, Sarah spots some familiar faces.

0:05:470:05:50

John and Barbara - we've met them before and once again

0:05:500:05:53

they might have just the thing for Sarah to save.

0:05:530:05:56

This looks quite interesting - what's that?

0:05:570:05:59

That was my brother's drawing board.

0:05:590:06:01

OK. Was he an architect or something?

0:06:010:06:03

He did train as an architect, although he worked as an engineer mostly.

0:06:030:06:07

He would have used that at home, I think, mainly for doing drawings

0:06:070:06:10

of model boats and model steam engines. He made a lot of models.

0:06:100:06:14

Excellent. Would it be possible to pull it out and have a look,

0:06:140:06:18

see if it's... see what the other side looks like?

0:06:180:06:22

-Hopefully it should be smooth.

-Yeah, that's what I'm thinking.

0:06:220:06:25

It's a shame to chuck it away, really.

0:06:250:06:27

But nobody uses drawing boards these days because everything is done on the computer.

0:06:270:06:30

It's the way of the world nowadays, I'm afraid, John.

0:06:300:06:33

I'm really pleased that I was here when this arrived here

0:06:330:06:36

because I love anything that is old.

0:06:360:06:38

I always think it's so much nicer than anything new.

0:06:380:06:40

It would be nice if somebody had a use for it but unfortunately

0:06:400:06:43

everybody's is chucking out drawing boards now.

0:06:430:06:46

-If it would be something you would let me have rather than going in there?

-Great, yes.

0:06:460:06:50

Thank you very much. I hope I do something with it that does it justice.

0:06:500:06:53

It's charming, I think.

0:06:530:06:55

Charming is exactly right, Sarah.

0:06:550:06:58

Any thoughts from John and Barbara about its future?

0:06:580:07:01

I can imagine it could make a piece of furniture,

0:07:030:07:06

like a very nice table top.

0:07:060:07:08

I think her looking at it with a different eye has made me look at it with different eyes,

0:07:080:07:13

rather than just something that can be got rid of.

0:07:130:07:15

Let's hope she does something good.

0:07:150:07:17

I'm sure she will.

0:07:170:07:19

Good on you, Barbara.

0:07:190:07:20

I know what you're thinking - you're going to be making all sorts of jokes

0:07:200:07:24

about going back to the drawing board, making up new designs,

0:07:240:07:27

but seriously, this is a fantastic find.

0:07:270:07:30

Anything industrial with this chunky look and beautiful surface

0:07:300:07:34

has got to have potential to be transformed into something that makes money.

0:07:340:07:38

It had better, Sarah.

0:07:380:07:40

Or it will be back to the old drawing...

0:07:400:07:42

All right, I won't say it. But I know a lady who may.

0:07:420:07:45

Designer Bex Simon is an artisan blacksmith who can manipulate metal

0:07:500:07:54

into magnificent moneymakers.

0:07:540:07:57

Blacksmithing as a craft,

0:07:590:08:01

it hasn't really changed over the hundreds and hundreds of years

0:08:010:08:05

it's been around.

0:08:050:08:07

We still use fire as a tool, we've got an anvil and a hammer.

0:08:070:08:11

There is something very medieval about it.

0:08:110:08:14

With husband Dave by her side,

0:08:150:08:18

this team produces high-end furniture and bespoke metal commissions.

0:08:180:08:22

My passion for the craft is trying to use it in contemporary ways.

0:08:240:08:29

Still keep it alive and involve it as much as I can with any job that we do.

0:08:290:08:34

Well, I'm not sure how many blacksmithing techniques

0:08:340:08:37

you'll be able to use on this wooden table.

0:08:370:08:40

Two items in the bag,

0:08:460:08:47

and now Sarah is on the prowl for a project for herself.

0:08:470:08:50

So, picture yourself spending all day at the tip.

0:08:530:08:57

I'm starting to worry about your frame of mind, Sarah.

0:08:570:09:01

I know, we're both as bad as each other.

0:09:010:09:04

Nick, save us!

0:09:050:09:07

Anything interesting in your car today?

0:09:070:09:09

I'm throwing away probably the contents of the loft today.

0:09:090:09:13

It's about my 15th trip to the dump. I'm moving house after 25 years.

0:09:130:09:19

25 years of stuff!

0:09:190:09:21

Music to Sarah's ears.

0:09:210:09:24

Hello, hello. I like your china.

0:09:240:09:27

Hi!

0:09:270:09:28

Are you moving? Are you clearing out?

0:09:280:09:30

-Moving house.

-Anything that might be interesting for recycling?

0:09:300:09:35

-That's electricals.

-Electricals, OK.

0:09:350:09:39

Is that going in there?

0:09:390:09:40

That's going in there.

0:09:400:09:42

Nobody wants silver-plate cutlery. I can't give it away.

0:09:420:09:46

It's nicely plated.

0:09:470:09:48

-Yes.

-It's A1, which is best quality.

0:09:480:09:52

Lovely stuff.

0:09:520:09:53

There are beautiful. When did you last use this lot?

0:09:540:09:57

That was my mother's.

0:09:570:09:59

And I've kept it since she died, trying to do something with it.

0:09:590:10:03

But as we are moving, we've got to limit the stuff that we take with us.

0:10:030:10:08

I totally understand that.

0:10:080:10:10

If I could take that bit.

0:10:100:10:11

-You can take that.

-I would love to try and save some of it and do something with it,

0:10:110:10:16

and then, if it's all right,

0:10:160:10:17

to come and show you what I've done or see where it's gone to.

0:10:170:10:20

It would be great to keep in touch,

0:10:200:10:22

but that to me is a bag of history in there

0:10:220:10:24

that I would love to just make sure it can...

0:10:240:10:26

-Whatever you like.

-Brilliant, thank you so much for letting me have it.

0:10:260:10:29

-Good luck with the move.

-Thank you.

0:10:290:10:32

Lift with the legs, Sarah.

0:10:320:10:34

It's so heavy.

0:10:350:10:37

Does Nick have any thoughts about Sarah's plans for his mum's old cutlery?

0:10:370:10:42

I've no idea. I hope she finds a good use for them

0:10:420:10:44

because it breaks my heart to throw some of it away, but...

0:10:440:10:47

nobody wants them any more.

0:10:480:10:50

Well, Sarah certainly does.

0:10:500:10:52

And she looks very happy about it indeed.

0:10:520:10:55

I feel like a very proud mother.

0:10:550:10:57

At the end of a successful day, Sarah has her three items.

0:11:000:11:05

Josh and Oli will endeavour to open this sewing machine box,

0:11:050:11:09

Bex will take on the architect's table

0:11:090:11:11

and Sarah will sort through Nick's family silver-plated cutlery.

0:11:110:11:16

I'm confident that I've saved items that are worthy of transformation.

0:11:160:11:21

It is, after all, at this stage, a game of chance.

0:11:210:11:23

But as far as I'm concerned, game on.

0:11:230:11:26

Now, we travel out into the tranquil West Sussex countryside,

0:11:350:11:40

home to countless horses, sheep and kids on bikes.

0:11:400:11:44

Hey, shouldn't you be in school?

0:11:440:11:47

It's also home to master makers Josh and Oli.

0:11:480:11:52

Sarah is bringing along the mystery box, but what will they find inside?

0:11:520:11:58

I'm sticking with sewing machine.

0:11:580:12:00

I've brought the vintage sewing machine to Josh and Oli

0:12:020:12:04

to see if they can open it up

0:12:040:12:06

and then transform it into something amazing.

0:12:060:12:08

But as I haven't actually seen inside it,

0:12:080:12:10

I'm hoping I'm not about to stitch them up.

0:12:100:12:12

Hello. How are you?

0:12:150:12:17

-OK.

-I've got something for you.

0:12:170:12:19

All right.

0:12:190:12:21

I actually need a hand with it.

0:12:210:12:22

This came to the recycling centre and it doesn't have its key with it,

0:12:220:12:27

so I have never seen inside it.

0:12:270:12:30

-OK.

-I'm hoping it's just...

-Maybe it's not a sewing machine.

0:12:300:12:33

It could be anything in there.

0:12:330:12:34

Really, guys, it's just going to be a sewing machine.

0:12:340:12:37

But, if it's a collectable one,

0:12:370:12:39

some rare models can sell for several hundred pounds, believe it or not.

0:12:390:12:44

Or, it could be just one of the newer electric ones.

0:12:440:12:47

Ah, it's electric!

0:12:470:12:49

I shouldn't have got my hopes up.

0:12:490:12:51

I mean, there are hundreds of these going into the tips every day.

0:12:510:12:55

Unwanted Singer sewing machines

0:12:560:12:58

have become very popular with the upcycling crowd...

0:12:580:13:02

Little light in there.

0:13:030:13:05

..making everything from lighting to desk fans.

0:13:050:13:09

Can the boys come up with something original?

0:13:090:13:12

Can the boys come up with something?

0:13:150:13:17

Anything?

0:13:200:13:21

Hmmm...

0:13:210:13:23

Yes, it's a sewing machine, Oli.

0:13:230:13:25

It would almost be cool to take the whole thing

0:13:250:13:28

apart into the individual components

0:13:280:13:30

and then, like, see what we could do with them.

0:13:300:13:32

Lay them out as like a blueprint, almost.

0:13:320:13:35

What can you put it back into that is completely different and that moves in a funny way or something?

0:13:350:13:39

The only thing I would say, it is really difficult to sail non-functioning things.

0:13:390:13:44

One other option is to go down the route of using the box,

0:13:440:13:47

that might be a way we could make something that would actually be useful and would sell.

0:13:470:13:53

So, if I left you the budget for £250, £300,

0:13:530:13:56

-take it apart and see what happens.

-See what happens.

0:13:560:13:59

And come back and surprise me.

0:13:590:14:00

Yeah, brilliant.

0:14:000:14:02

Thanks ever so much.

0:14:020:14:03

So, boys, you've got carte blanche to do whatever you want.

0:14:040:14:08

Hey! Not that.

0:14:080:14:10

Well, they've sown a few ideas about what they might come up with,

0:14:100:14:13

but that sewing machine is a real challenge,

0:14:130:14:16

so it's going to be a total surprise to see what they make out of it.

0:14:160:14:19

They've set a budget of £250-£300.

0:14:190:14:23

It's a fair chunk of money,

0:14:230:14:25

so Sarah is taking a gamble on the boys coming up with something

0:14:250:14:28

that will be saleable.

0:14:280:14:30

Or coming up with anything at all.

Near Guildford in the Surrey countryside,

0:14:380:14:41

blacksmith Bex Simon is in her workshop and helped today by husband Dave.

0:14:410:14:46

They're waiting on Sarah,

0:14:460:14:48

who is about to drop off her latest puzzler.

0:14:480:14:53

She does like to challenge us with things, doesn't she?

0:14:530:14:56

She does, she hasn't defeated us yet.

0:14:560:14:58

I'm sure whatever it is, it will speak to us.

0:14:580:15:02

-Yeah.

-Volumes.

-Have a charm

0:15:020:15:04

that will charm us.

0:15:040:15:06

Hi!

0:15:060:15:07

-Come on in.

-Can you guess what it is?

0:15:070:15:10

No, it looks really interesting.

0:15:100:15:12

It's a drawing board.

0:15:120:15:13

-Oh, wow.

-It is a double elephant drawing board.

0:15:130:15:17

-Have you heard of that?

-No.

0:15:170:15:18

Double elephant is an old English paper size

0:15:190:15:22

used in the stationery and printing trades.

0:15:220:15:25

This imperial sizing was replaced by the modern international paper sizes

0:15:250:15:30

such as A4 in 1959.

0:15:300:15:33

Look, you've got the weights and things.

0:15:350:15:37

Yeah, and this lovely slide that would have gone up and down it.

0:15:370:15:40

I was thinking I could leave you with these lovely bits as components

0:15:400:15:43

and I could come back and find an amazing desk!

0:15:430:15:48

How about kitchen unit?

0:15:480:15:49

Maybe an island in the kitchen?

0:15:490:15:51

We've got these lovely bits you could use for hanging pots and pans off it or

0:15:510:15:54

suspending stuff underneath, or knives going through it.

0:15:540:15:57

Would that work?

0:15:580:16:00

I think that would be a good plan for it.

0:16:000:16:03

A freestanding kitchen unit.

0:16:030:16:04

Sounds charming.

0:16:040:16:06

You already have the table top,

0:16:060:16:07

so that means you just have to come up with a base of some kind.

0:16:070:16:11

And that shouldn't cost an arm and a leg, should it?

0:16:110:16:14

What are you thinking about cost-wise it's going to be to make one?

0:16:140:16:18

About £550, six...

0:16:180:16:22

Did you say £550? Great.

0:16:220:16:23

That's lovely. Aim for £550.

0:16:230:16:25

Try and get it done on that. Go for it.

0:16:250:16:27

-See you soon! Thank you.

-Bye.

0:16:270:16:31

That kitchen unit sounds fantastic, and I think it'll be really saleable.

0:16:320:16:35

They are going to give it their own special touch, though, aren't they?

0:16:350:16:39

We are looking at £550 to convert the architect's table

0:16:410:16:45

into a kitchen unit. It sounds quite simple,

0:16:450:16:48

so Bex and Dave will have to use their special touch to make this one a masterpiece.

0:16:480:16:54

In the quiet Sussex countryside,

0:16:580:17:00

Sarah is at home in her cosy farmhouse.

0:17:000:17:03

And she's preparing to start on her own cash-generating conundrum.

0:17:050:17:09

She has a huge collection of old silver-plated cutlery,

0:17:100:17:14

which is desperately in need of further investigation.

0:17:140:17:18

I think the best thing to do is get it all out,

0:17:180:17:20

lay it out and find out exactly what we've got in there.

0:17:200:17:23

But I think there's money to be made here.

0:17:230:17:25

That's the name of the game.

0:17:250:17:27

All the cutlery made should have assay marks on the back -

0:17:320:17:36

these are hallmarks that say where it was made,

0:17:360:17:38

who the manufacturer was, and then what kind of plate it is.

0:17:380:17:41

Silver-plated items are made from a base metal which has been coated

0:17:430:17:47

with a fine layer of precious silver,

0:17:470:17:49

giving a high-class appearance for a lower cost than hugely expensive solid silver.

0:17:490:17:54

It came in different grades, so something like A1 is what you really want,

0:17:570:18:00

which means it had the most silver dipped on to it

0:18:000:18:03

so it's the thickest grade of silver.

0:18:030:18:06

She's finding rather a lot of that A1 grade silver plate.

0:18:060:18:10

And it's cutlery all of the same design.

0:18:100:18:12

I am literally like a kid in a candy store with this.

0:18:130:18:16

I'm hoping if we get a full set of this -

0:18:160:18:18

this is a six-piece place setting -

0:18:180:18:20

and if they've hung on to all the knives

0:18:200:18:22

and haven't chucked anything out, that makes it much more saleable.

0:18:220:18:25

While she collects items from that set,

0:18:250:18:28

she is also finding some other promising pieces.

0:18:280:18:31

They had cutlery back in the day

0:18:310:18:32

that we don't even think about using any more. That's a mustard spoon.

0:18:320:18:36

Don't think anybody uses those much.

0:18:360:18:38

I've got one.

0:18:380:18:40

Of course you do, Sarah.

0:18:400:18:41

It looks like she's in luck with the set of matching cutlery.

0:18:440:18:48

So, that is one full canteen of cutlery there,

0:18:520:18:56

so that is great to have a full set there,

0:18:560:18:58

but even bundles of these other stuff put together and polished up,

0:18:580:19:01

they're going to make some money.

0:19:010:19:03

Speaking of polishing,

0:19:030:19:04

that amount of silverware, it'll be no small job.

0:19:040:19:08

I'm sure it's going to look a lot better when it's all shiny.

0:19:080:19:12

I can see myself in that now, lovely.

0:19:140:19:17

You are, Sarah, you are.

0:19:170:19:19

The only cost involved in this project is a bit of silver polish.

0:19:220:19:26

But, for a collection of cutlery that couldn't be given away,

0:19:260:19:29

I'm not sure bit of polish will be enough

0:19:290:19:32

for people to pay top dollar for them.

0:19:320:19:34

Elsewhere in Sussex,

0:19:410:19:43

let's see if Josh and Oli have finally come up with a plan for the old sewing machine.

0:19:430:19:48

This bit holds your teabag and when you start it,

0:19:500:19:54

it drops it into the mug and then that gives it a good old stir.

0:19:540:19:57

You would get some real good brew off that.

0:19:570:19:59

POP!

0:19:590:20:01

I take it that's a no, then.

0:20:010:20:02

-Let's get this thing apart.

-Righto.

0:20:020:20:04

Josh and Oli begin to dismantle the sewing machine,

0:20:080:20:12

with the biggest screwdriver I've ever seen.

0:20:120:20:14

The hope is that once it's stripped down to its component parts,

0:20:170:20:20

inspiration will strike.

0:20:200:20:22

Somewhere within this is some gold.

0:20:250:20:28

Yes.

0:20:280:20:30

Gold paint, maybe.

0:20:300:20:31

As a backup plan,

0:20:330:20:34

the boys have still got the wooden box the sewing machine came in.

0:20:340:20:37

It might be a safer bet than what they are doing just...

0:20:370:20:41

oh, no, here we go.

0:20:410:20:43

It looks like Oli's come up with something.

0:20:430:20:46

He's made himself a little friend.

0:20:470:20:49

-Josh, I made a robot.

-Oh, sweet.

0:20:490:20:52

Yeah, that'll do. Get Sarah back now?

0:20:520:20:55

Yeah, get Sarah back in and let her see her £300 robot.

0:20:550:20:59

I've got a feeling she's not going to be happy.

0:20:590:21:02

Oh, Josh! Oli spent ages on that.

0:21:030:21:06

Sorry, Oli. Maybe you can make another robot friend with the leftovers.

0:21:070:21:12

Well, it's clear nothing much is getting achieved around here.

0:21:130:21:17

We'll give you some more time to think,

0:21:170:21:19

but you'd better get your thinking caps on and come up with something,

0:21:190:21:22

and quickly. Thank you.

0:21:220:21:24

Back in Surrey, let's hope that Bex and Dave have a clearer plan drawn up

0:21:310:21:36

for the architect's table-cum-kitchen unit.

0:21:360:21:39

Clear as mud.

0:21:410:21:43

OK, so, this is the structure of how it's going to be,

0:21:430:21:47

it's going to be three-leafed, well, two-leafed with a centre bit.

0:21:470:21:52

We are going to split some steel so that's your framework

0:21:520:21:55

and these will be the swinging leaves out, so that's the plan.

0:21:550:22:01

SHE CHUCKLES

0:22:010:22:03

Bit confused, Dave?

0:22:030:22:04

Me too.

0:22:050:22:06

OK, so let's get this up.

0:22:060:22:08

But it sounds as if Bex's plan is to split the table top in three

0:22:080:22:12

to have two drop-leaf extendable sides.

0:22:120:22:15

How did you work that out?

0:22:150:22:17

Super clever.

0:22:170:22:19

As for the base,

0:22:190:22:20

Bex has an intricate design in mind that looks like it will be difficult

0:22:200:22:24

to bring to life.

0:22:240:22:25

She starts by picking out lengths of scrap steel to make into legs,

0:22:250:22:30

cutting them to size using a donkey saw,

0:22:300:22:33

otherwise known as a power hacksaw,

0:22:330:22:35

it drops cutting fluid onto the steel, which helps lubricate and helps protect the saw.

0:22:350:22:41

Once that's done, Bex plans to use the ancient art of splitting

0:22:410:22:45

to bend the legs into shape.

0:22:450:22:48

With blacksmithing, you've got about five or six sort of basic techniques

0:22:480:22:53

that are always used and this thing is one of them.

0:22:530:22:55

Splitting involves first marking the steel with the chisel,

0:22:570:23:01

then the metal is heated...

0:23:010:23:03

..beaten...

0:23:040:23:06

heated...

0:23:060:23:08

-Stop!

-..beaten...

0:23:080:23:09

and you get the idea,

0:23:100:23:12

until the once-solid metal bends like plasticine,

0:23:120:23:14

creating a split down the middle.

0:23:140:23:16

It is such a wonderful craft and it's so exciting, you know,

0:23:190:23:23

watching the chisel going through that hot metal,

0:23:230:23:29

it gives it soul.

0:23:290:23:31

As Bex continues bending,

0:23:320:23:34

Dave starts to make a frame

0:23:340:23:36

that will join the wooden top to the metal legs.

0:23:360:23:40

He welds together steel bars using a filler material

0:23:400:23:44

that forms a pool of molten metal at the join.

0:23:440:23:48

This will cool to make a join

0:23:480:23:50

that is as strong or even stronger than the base material.

0:23:500:23:54

Bex is still bending those legs.

0:23:570:23:59

She's just about done with one of them,

0:24:020:24:04

but she still got another three to do.

0:24:040:24:06

Time is getting on.

0:24:060:24:08

It's going to look nice.

0:24:090:24:12

Ye of little faith.

0:24:120:24:15

Back in Sussex, would you believe it, Josh and Oli have a plan.

0:24:170:24:22

After a lot of head scratching,

0:24:220:24:24

we've decided to use the wooden box to make a mobile barbershop.

0:24:240:24:28

So this will be for a barber who wants to go from door to door.

0:24:280:24:32

They can keep all of their products and scissors in here.

0:24:320:24:35

A barber's kit?

0:24:350:24:37

Excellent. Wait.

0:24:370:24:39

But what is this?

0:24:390:24:40

I thought it would be a real shame just let all of these components go to waste,

0:24:400:24:44

so I'm trying to figure out some kind of little mechanical desk toy

0:24:440:24:48

and, at first thought,

0:24:480:24:50

a little turtle comes to mind because of this guy.

0:24:500:24:54

I'm a little bit lost at the moment,

0:24:540:24:56

I don't quite know if it's possible and how I'm going to do it.

0:24:560:25:00

Yeah, you heard it right.

0:25:000:25:01

Josh is going to make a mechanical reptile desk toy.

0:25:010:25:06

With so much time used up already,

0:25:060:25:08

it will be a race to the finish between the tortoise and the...

0:25:080:25:12

hare.

0:25:120:25:15

I'm going to kind of make a little shell for the turtle and I want this

0:25:150:25:18

big cog to sit on top.

0:25:180:25:20

When you turn this cog, it's going to power...

0:25:200:25:24

this here and so the turtle's head is going to move in and out.

0:25:240:25:29

-Who wouldn't be excited about this?

-Sarah?

0:25:290:25:31

Oli's first job with the barber's kit is to remove all the existing

0:25:320:25:36

varnish with an electric sander, ready for a brand-new finish.

0:25:360:25:41

While Josh has got something special

0:25:410:25:43

he wants to incorporate into the design.

0:25:430:25:47

I got this off my grandad and this was like an old roofing tool,

0:25:470:25:52

so they used to beat lead with it, so that'll be perfect for making

0:25:520:25:56

little gears and pulleys out of.

0:25:560:26:00

Aw, that's sweet! You can dedicate the piece in memory of your grandad.

0:26:000:26:05

-Grandad is still around.

-Oops, sorry.

0:26:050:26:08

Oli's barber box is coming along nicely.

0:26:080:26:11

Can you just come over here and hold these little bits here?

0:26:110:26:14

And even Josh's desk toy is taking shape.

0:26:140:26:18

-Keeps falling off.

-Kind of.

0:26:180:26:21

Oli looks to have his project under control.

0:26:210:26:24

Just needed to tweak it a little bit.

0:26:240:26:26

But the turtle, they've used up so much time already,

0:26:260:26:30

I'm not sure it's going to be worth it.

0:26:300:26:32

Back home at her farmhouse, Sarah is...

0:26:370:26:40

yep, still polishing.

0:26:400:26:42

(Shiny.)

0:26:420:26:43

In amongst the silver-plate,

0:26:440:26:46

Sarah's found a few items that look to be the genuine article.

0:26:460:26:50

That is an 1840 Georgian silver spoon.

0:26:510:26:55

In its own right, that's at least 50 quid sitting there.

0:26:550:26:59

This lot, I'm not quite sure what to do with because I feel some

0:26:590:27:02

responsibility for them.

0:27:020:27:03

But that lot, they are decorative, they are saleable.

0:27:030:27:06

I reckon they are good to go.

0:27:060:27:08

Well, then, let's go.

0:27:080:27:10

When Sarah saw the bag of silver-plated flatware,

0:27:100:27:13

it was headed to the tip.

0:27:130:27:15

But with a bit of elbow grease, she's made them shiny,

0:27:180:27:21

bright and sparkling again.

0:27:210:27:23

Through tirelessly sorting it all,

0:27:260:27:28

Sarah's discovered, among other things,

0:27:280:27:30

a full 50-piece silver-plated dining set

0:27:300:27:34

and a small collection of solid silver pieces, too.

0:27:340:27:37

So, with this lot, Sarah must stand a good chance of making a profit.

0:27:370:27:42

Loads of different things here that need to get photographed,

0:27:420:27:45

made to look special, and put online.

0:27:450:27:47

Oh, I like your china.

0:27:530:27:55

When Sarah stopped Nick at the dump, she pounced on his bag of tableware.

0:27:550:27:59

That was my mother's.

0:27:590:28:01

-Right.

-And I've kept it since she died, trying to do something with it.

0:28:010:28:06

Although it wasn't solid silver,

0:28:060:28:07

Sarah still thought it might be worth a bob or two.

0:28:070:28:10

It's A1, which is best quality.

0:28:100:28:13

And Nick was just happy that it didn't end up in the skip.

0:28:130:28:16

I hope she finds a good use for them because it breaks my heart to throw

0:28:160:28:19

some of it away. But nobody wants them any more.

0:28:190:28:23

Well, Nick, that might not be the case.

0:28:230:28:26

Sarah has shared pictures on social media to see if any

0:28:260:28:29

of the flash flatware would sell.

0:28:290:28:31

And do you know what? Some of it did.

0:28:310:28:34

Sarah's travelled to Pilton in Somerset

0:28:350:28:38

to catch up with Nick

0:28:380:28:40

and she might just have a little surprise for him.

0:28:400:28:42

-Hi, Nick.

-Hello, Sarah.

-Hi there. How are you doing?

0:28:440:28:46

-Very well, thank you.

-When I last saw you,

0:28:460:28:49

you looked like you were at the end of a very long moving process.

0:28:490:28:52

Was it a busy time?

0:28:520:28:54

25 years of stuff.

0:28:540:28:56

I know that you dropped off a big bag of old cutlery

0:28:560:28:59

that you were going to put into re-use, weren't you?

0:28:590:29:01

-Yes.

-And so I had hoped that I would have a good look through it and find

0:29:010:29:05

it was littered with Georgian silver and...

0:29:050:29:08

-I'd already done that.

-..various stuff.

0:29:080:29:10

You had done it, but you'd missed these bits.

0:29:100:29:13

OK.

0:29:130:29:14

I don't know if you'd recognise these.

0:29:160:29:18

I thought I'd saved those knife and fork.

0:29:180:29:21

So those are a beautiful solid silver christening set.

0:29:210:29:25

Yes. That was just the hassle, I think, I missed them.

0:29:250:29:27

-Thank you.

-An absolute pleasure.

0:29:270:29:29

So this stunning Georgian silver spoon,

0:29:290:29:32

something with your family crest on it, I think...

0:29:320:29:34

It's got... Yeah, that's got our name on it.

0:29:340:29:36

That's John Inskip, who was my grandfather's father, so my great-grandfather,

0:29:360:29:41

and he would have been turning in his grave, I expect,

0:29:410:29:43

if he knew I'd thrown it away.

0:29:430:29:45

I've actually got some pictures of the other stuff, just so you could have a look at it.

0:29:450:29:48

Amongst it, there were some old pieces of plate,

0:29:480:29:52

lots of things like jam spoons and things like that, that people don't use any more, do they?

0:29:520:29:56

-That's right.

-Well, I did share the pictures of your cutlery online

0:29:560:30:00

and it turns out some people love a jam spoon

0:30:000:30:02

and really like a fish knife,

0:30:020:30:04

so I have actually got some money to hand over to you as well.

0:30:040:30:07

I've got £205 here for the best of your cutlery.

0:30:070:30:12

That's phenomenal, quite unexpected.

0:30:120:30:14

Is there something that you might do?

0:30:140:30:16

We'll probably give it to the British Heart Foundation

0:30:160:30:19

cos that was the charity that my mother...

0:30:190:30:22

that we gave money to when Mum died, so that will probably go there.

0:30:220:30:25

Thank you very much indeed.

0:30:250:30:27

It was a total pleasure. Lovely to see you again and in your charming new house.

0:30:270:30:30

Thank you ever so much.

0:30:300:30:31

-Thanks very much.

-Bye-bye.

-Bye-bye.

0:30:310:30:34

The total for all the cutlery Sarah managed to sell

0:30:340:30:38

came to £207 and, with just £2 of silver polish to take off,

0:30:380:30:43

that leaves Nick with £205 to donate to charity.

0:30:430:30:47

What's Sarah's done is brilliant.

0:30:470:30:49

I didn't know what to do with the cutlery.

0:30:490:30:52

It was beautiful but I couldn't give it away.

0:30:520:30:55

And she's found homes for it.

0:30:550:30:57

The money is just a bonus and I can use that and give it to the charity.

0:30:570:31:02

Brilliant!

0:31:020:31:03

And now we head back to Sussex.

0:31:100:31:13

When we left them, Oli was getting on well with his box of barber's bits

0:31:130:31:17

and Josh was still tinkering with his toy turtle.

0:31:170:31:20

It's time for Sarah to find out just what they've been up to.

0:31:200:31:24

I see vintage sewing machines at the tip all day long.

0:31:260:31:29

I'm just hoping that Josh and Oli

0:31:290:31:31

have done something inspirational with this one

0:31:310:31:33

to give us all a few more ideas about what to do with them.

0:31:330:31:36

Well, it took them long enough,

0:31:360:31:38

but where once there was a sewing machine...

0:31:380:31:40

..now there's a sleek

0:31:440:31:46

and cool-looking mobile barber's shop.

0:31:460:31:51

The functional backboard is equipped to carry all your barbering

0:31:510:31:55

essentials. Included is a cut-throat razor made from a decorative plate

0:31:550:32:00

from the sewing machine, and a handmade shaving brush.

0:32:000:32:03

To top it all off, the box has a chalkboard paint finish.

0:32:060:32:11

But that's not all, folks.

0:32:110:32:14

Josh made this turtle.

0:32:150:32:18

-Hi, guys.

-Hey, Sarah.

0:32:210:32:24

-How you doing?

-All right, how are you?

0:32:240:32:26

Yeah, really well. What have you been up to?

0:32:260:32:29

This is what we've made with the sewing machine you gave us.

0:32:290:32:31

Oh, no way!

0:32:310:32:33

It looks exciting.

0:32:330:32:34

What's inside it?

0:32:340:32:36

Remember it didn't have a key?

0:32:360:32:37

-Yeah.

-So we made this key so you can unlock it.

0:32:370:32:40

It's a mobile barber's kit.

0:32:400:32:44

It's really beautiful.

0:32:440:32:45

It's so clever.

0:32:450:32:47

You have got a dish for your shaving cream and shaving brush.

0:32:470:32:52

-And we've even made a razor.

-Ohhh! I know what...

0:32:520:32:55

-That's from the front of the sewing machine.

-Yeah!

0:32:550:32:58

Fantastic. That is really clever.

0:32:580:33:01

Lovely. What did you do with the rest of it?

0:33:010:33:03

Well, yeah, I have got a little extra surprise for you.

0:33:030:33:06

-Have you?

-So...

0:33:060:33:08

So, while I was doing that, Josh had his own little project.

0:33:080:33:11

This is a little desk turtle.

0:33:140:33:16

I've always wanted a desk turtle!

0:33:160:33:18

How come I never had a desk turtle?

0:33:180:33:21

That is so funny.

0:33:210:33:22

That is just hilarious.

0:33:220:33:24

So all of the components actually came from the machine.

0:33:240:33:27

The drive belt is off the original motor.

0:33:270:33:29

-Lovely.

-Just, yeah, used all the components that I could.

0:33:290:33:33

Fantastic. I really like what you've done there.

0:33:330:33:36

-Thank you for making something commercial out of the other bit, but...

-What are you saying?!

0:33:360:33:41

A turtle's not commercial?

0:33:410:33:42

OK, so, 300 quid?

0:33:420:33:45

Are we splitting that between that, or have we gone slightly over budget?

0:33:450:33:48

I think... We tried to keep to budget.

0:33:480:33:51

I think we probably put more time in it than what we were going to,

0:33:510:33:54

but we'll call it 300.

0:33:540:33:56

Really? OK, well,

0:33:560:33:58

I think the world's first fully operational desk turtle

0:33:580:34:02

and mobile barber's shop are a triumph.

0:34:020:34:04

-Thank you ever so much.

-Cool, you're welcome.

0:34:040:34:07

Well, I have learned to expect the unexpected every time I come here.

0:34:100:34:13

Fantastic transformation of the old sewing machine and I think there's

0:34:130:34:16

money to be made, even from that desktop turtle.

0:34:160:34:19

Is that going back in the car or into the skip?

0:34:270:34:29

When Sarah enquired about Robert's sewing machine at the dump,

0:34:290:34:32

it brought back painful memories for him.

0:34:320:34:34

-My mum regularly made clothes for us.

-Really?

0:34:340:34:38

Despite not being able to see inside, Sarah wanted it.

0:34:380:34:42

Would you mind if I took it away, as the mystery machine?

0:34:420:34:46

And Robert hazarded a guess as to what it might become.

0:34:460:34:49

Maybe a lamp stand?

0:34:490:34:52

Maybe a beautiful lamp stand.

0:34:520:34:54

Well, I bet even 100 monkeys with 100 typewriters

0:34:540:34:57

wouldn't have come up with what Josh made.

0:34:570:35:01

But the barber's box proved to be a hit and was snapped up by Nick,

0:35:010:35:06

a regular customer of Sarah's, who operates online store,

0:35:060:35:10

Smithers of Stanford.

0:35:100:35:11

Sarah's travelled to Hascombe in Surrey

0:35:150:35:17

to hand over the profits from the barber's box to Robert.

0:35:170:35:21

And she's even got a certain little something for him in that bag.

0:35:210:35:25

-Hi, Robert.

-Hello, hi, Sarah, how are you?

0:35:280:35:30

I'm very well. How are you? Oh, hello, who are you?

0:35:300:35:32

-I'm Skye.

-Hi, Skye, how are you?

-I'm Mia.

-Oh, hi, there, Mia.

0:35:320:35:36

When I first met you at the recycling centre,

0:35:360:35:39

-we couldn't open your sewing machine.

-No.

0:35:390:35:42

And it's odd that I've actually found the key since.

0:35:420:35:44

I wasn't sure if you were coming back so I threw it out,

0:35:440:35:46

probably, what, a month ago, Skye, was it?

0:35:460:35:49

Well, that didn't matter because I've actually taken the sewing machine

0:35:490:35:52

to somebody who, who knew how to get into it.

0:35:520:35:54

Have you thought about something that might be done with it?

0:35:540:35:57

I thought, rather uninspiringly, that you might make it into a lamp!

0:35:570:36:02

My wife thought you might use it as a stand for a coffee table.

0:36:020:36:05

So we're interested or intrigued to see what it might have turned out like.

0:36:050:36:09

I've got some pictures to show you of what they did with your sewing machine.

0:36:090:36:13

So here is a mobile barber's shop.

0:36:130:36:15

-Wow. I love that colour, don't you?

-Mm!

0:36:150:36:19

So it has proved pretty popular and it has sold.

0:36:190:36:21

Oh, really? Oh, fantastic.

0:36:210:36:23

Yeah, so I have actually got £25 here to give to you for your old sewing machine.

0:36:230:36:28

Thank you so much, great.

0:36:280:36:31

This money is going to go to a lovely local charity.

0:36:310:36:34

-So thank you.

-Oh, it's an absolute pleasure.

0:36:340:36:36

That sounds like a great place for that to go.

0:36:360:36:38

Oh, and before I go, I've actually got a little something here as a memento for you.

0:36:380:36:42

Here is the world's first sewing machine desk turtle paperweight.

0:36:420:36:48

-Wow.

-What do you think?

-Cool!

-Do you want to have a turn?

0:36:480:36:51

They saved some bits. They wanted to make something mechanical out of it.

0:36:510:36:54

-I remember this wheel!

-That's so cool!

-My mum sitting at the table turning the wheel around.

0:36:540:36:58

That's really sweet, isn't it?

0:36:580:37:00

It's a memento from your sewing machine and just to say thank you

0:37:000:37:03

-so much for letting us take it away.

-Thank you so much.

0:37:030:37:05

My pleasure. Lovely to have caught up with you.

0:37:050:37:08

-And you, too. Thanks.

-Nice to meet you, girls.

0:37:080:37:11

Josh and Oli 's labour and materials came in at £300.

0:37:110:37:16

With the barber's box selling for an impressive £325,

0:37:160:37:20

£25 can be shared with Robert.

0:37:200:37:23

Well, that really wasn't about the money, was it?

0:37:240:37:27

I think Robert liked what we did with his sewing machine

0:37:270:37:29

and I think he's going to cherish that turtle. Lovely.

0:37:290:37:32

In deepest Surrey, Bex and her husband Dave

0:37:370:37:40

have completed work on their architect's table-cum-kitchen unit

0:37:400:37:44

and they are eager for Sarah's arrival.

0:37:440:37:47

We've got an extra little surprise for Sarah that was Dave's idea.

0:37:470:37:53

-Thank you, dear.

-THEY LAUGH

0:37:530:37:55

Looking forward to seeing Sarah's reaction, really.

0:37:570:38:02

I'm coming back to the drawing board to see what Bex and Dave have managed to do with it.

0:38:020:38:06

Fingers crossed it's a fantastic kitchen unit.

0:38:060:38:09

When Sarah dropped it off,

0:38:090:38:11

the best days of the architect's table had drawn to a close.

0:38:110:38:14

Now Bex and Dave have transformed it into a practical,

0:38:240:38:27

extendable and attractive freestanding kitchen unit.

0:38:270:38:31

The wooden table top has been split in three and hinged to make a

0:38:330:38:37

foldaway surface space.

0:38:370:38:39

All of Bex's hard work crafting the steel base has paid off

0:38:400:38:44

with a geometric, architectural inspired structure,

0:38:440:38:48

which is sturdy as well as beautiful.

0:38:480:38:50

And leaving nothing to waste,

0:38:530:38:55

Dave has used all parts of the drawing table

0:38:550:38:57

to make a quirky and useful cookbook holder.

0:38:570:39:01

But what will Sarah make of it?

0:39:010:39:03

SARAH CHUCKLES

0:39:050:39:07

Hey!

0:39:070:39:09

It's lovely! Oh, and that's the slide.

0:39:110:39:14

Yeah, Dave's added extra, this cookbook stand.

0:39:140:39:18

Oh, that's so clever.

0:39:180:39:20

That is a lovely use of that old piece of material.

0:39:200:39:24

Isn't it cool? It just looks really nice with it.

0:39:240:39:27

How have you done this? Because it looks...

0:39:270:39:29

That is really cool.

0:39:290:39:30

Yeah, we split it and then put the shape into it.

0:39:300:39:33

Basically, we used the theme of architecture for the framework.

0:39:330:39:37

I think as a balanced piece, that is so lovely.

0:39:370:39:41

You guys don't go down the easy route, do you?

0:39:410:39:44

-It's really lovely.

-It's got wheels as well, at the back,

0:39:440:39:47

so you can move it around.

0:39:470:39:49

I absolutely love it.

0:39:490:39:51

This transformation took a lot of work.

0:39:510:39:54

Have they managed to stick to the budget?

0:39:550:39:57

For you, Sarah, it came in on budget.

0:39:590:40:02

I'm really pleased.

0:40:020:40:04

I think it's really beautiful.

0:40:040:40:05

Thank you.

0:40:050:40:07

It's a triumph all round.

0:40:070:40:09

Bex has even found another use for the multipurpose unit.

0:40:090:40:13

My mum wears big, dangly earrings so I feel like my mum!

0:40:130:40:17

You look like a spaniel!

0:40:170:40:19

This looks quite interesting. What's that?

0:40:260:40:28

When Sarah met John and Barbara at the dump,

0:40:280:40:31

she loved the look of John's dad's architect's table.

0:40:310:40:33

He would have used that for doing drawings of model boats

0:40:330:40:37

and model steam engines.

0:40:370:40:38

John was sad to see it go...

0:40:380:40:40

But it would be nice if somebody had a use for it, but, unfortunately,

0:40:400:40:43

everybody is chucking out drawing boards now.

0:40:430:40:45

..but was confident it was in safe hands.

0:40:450:40:48

-Well, let's hope she does something good.

-I'm sure she will.

0:40:480:40:51

You were right, Barbara, she has.

0:40:510:40:53

Sarah was then on a mission to find the kitchen unit in new home.

0:40:560:41:00

She listed it online on sites

0:41:000:41:03

including eBay, Etsy and social media.

0:41:030:41:06

But were there any takers?

0:41:060:41:08

Sarah's now meeting up again with Barbara and John to show them what

0:41:110:41:15

became of their drawing table.

0:41:150:41:17

Hi, there. Hello. How are you?

0:41:210:41:23

Really nice to see you again.

0:41:230:41:25

-And you.

-I saw you last coming to and from the tip.

0:41:250:41:29

I loved the architect's drawing board that you...

0:41:290:41:31

-My dad...

-..brought along.

0:41:310:41:33

-Did you wonder what we might do with it after we took it away?

-Yeah,

0:41:330:41:37

I could see that the piece of wood might be useful, but nobody wants

0:41:370:41:40

drawing tables any more, so...

0:41:400:41:43

I took it to a blacksmith called Bex

0:41:430:41:46

and her partner Dave, and they really wanted to work on it.

0:41:460:41:49

So I've actually got some pictures to show you of how it ended up.

0:41:490:41:52

So they have turned it into...

0:41:520:41:54

-Ohhh!

-Mm!

0:41:540:41:56

-A kitchen island.

-Oh, that's beautiful.

0:41:560:41:58

Dave has made a cookbook stand to go on top of it.

0:41:580:42:01

-Oh!

-Oh, yes, that's very clever. Marvellous!

-So, all together,

0:42:010:42:03

-what do you think of that?

-That's pretty amazing, actually.

0:42:030:42:06

And do you think your father would approve of its re-use?

0:42:060:42:09

I think he would very much approve of the fact it was reused at all.

0:42:090:42:11

I think he would have been horrified that I was taking it to the dump in

0:42:110:42:14

-the first place!

-It is currently up for sale.

0:42:140:42:17

I haven't managed to find a buyer for it yet but I have high hopes it will sell

0:42:170:42:21

and I will make some profit out of it.

0:42:210:42:23

When I have done, I'll be back in touch to share it with you.

0:42:230:42:27

-Well, thank you for being there and for taking it.

-Yes, and reusing it!

0:42:270:42:30

Definitely reusing it. It was lovely to catch up.

0:42:300:42:32

-Thank you so much.

-Yes, bye.

-Nice seeing you again.

0:42:320:42:35

Bex and Dave came in on-budget of £550 but as it is yet to find

0:42:380:42:43

a new home, we might be £550 down.

0:42:430:42:47

But it's a cracking bit of furniture so I'm sure it won't be long

0:42:470:42:51

before it's snapped up.

0:42:510:42:53

Sarah salvaged three unwanted items from Witney recycling centre.

0:42:570:43:02

The bag of cutlery was buffed up and brought back to life.

0:43:020:43:06

The sewing machine was totally reimagined.

0:43:060:43:11

And the architect's table became a freestanding kitchen unit.

0:43:110:43:16

Well, we started off with stuff

0:43:170:43:18

that was destined for the tip and we ended up with items

0:43:180:43:21

that would take pride of place in any home.

0:43:210:43:24

You can't ask for a better result than that.

0:43:240:43:26

Sarah Moore is searching for three things to save from being lost forever in a Witley tip, but will she be able to find new homes for an old sewing machine, a broken drawing table and a collection of skip-bound cutlery? With a little help from artist blacksmith Bex Simon and the creative duo of Josh and Oli, Sarah hopes to transform the items and turn a profit. But what will she do with that discarded silverware?
