It's arrived! The winning item in the Parcelforce upcycling competition has finally come through the doors of our workshop and we're eager to get working to find the hidden beauty in this rocking horse that's ended up looking a little tired and neglected.

However, we would love to hear your thoughts and creative ideas as to what you would do with a fantastic piece such as this one. Do you have something similar lurking in your home that could do with a little TLC and upcycling 'love'? You can share with us via Twitter @reupcycled.
Keep an eye on our blog as we will be sharing with you the process of this transformation over the next few days.
We hope that Parcelforce will continue to hold further competitions such as this one in the future to really help give a few more forgotten treasures a new chance to shine and maybe inspire a little creativity to us all. Keep an eye on their Twitter feed @parcelforce and Facebook page for future opportunities.
