Chris Brandler is a guy who has taken ‘upcycling’ to a whole other level.

Not content with sanding down an old chest of drawers and coating them in a sample pot of Farrow & Ball, he’s made a career out of turning old barn wood into beautiful pieces of furniture – and was even commissioned to kit-out swimmer Tom Daley’s house.

He’s also the only person we’ve come across to build a treehouse in his home. Along with his wife Polly, who looks after visuals and branding, he was kind enough to show us around this real-life childhood dream.

Take a peek.
