#MakeWithDannells June Winner - @upstyledbygg

Updated: Oct 9, 2023

Hurray for June's #MakeWithDannells winner - George of @upcycledbygg, who makes lampshades to complement her furniture upcycling business, where she uses her creative talents to transform pre-loved furniture into stunning pieces. Her winning lampshade fully represents George’s eye-catching, quirky style and her love of luxury fabrics. We love how the length of her winning Needcraft Floor lamp vertically frames the fabric's beautiful design.

Our congratulations go to George, whose creative talents for upcycling vintage furniture, using paints, stencils can be seen in her Etsy shop. We’re looking forward to seeing what she creates from her prize, a £50 voucher to be spent at! Get to know George more in our #MakeWithDannells' winner interview below.

Are you new to using Dannells lampshade making supplies, craft and hobby products or are you a seasoned user?

I’ve been using Dannells for all my lampshade making supplies for about 3 years now.

What can you tell us about the Dannells Floor Lamp Making Kit that you won the June #makewithdannells competition with?

The lamp-making kit is fab, easy to use & great that it’s all cut to size with kiss cuts. It makes life so much easier!

How would you describe your creative style?

I love using luxurious velvets to make my lampshades in a variety of print. I’m particularly drawn to anything abstract, floral & colourful.

What is it that you like most about Dannells lampshade making supplies, craft, and hobby products?

Dannells have everything you need in one place & delivery is fast!

What other creative hobbies do you dabble in?

Anything home decor, particularly furniture upcycling & restyling. I love finding something that would end up in landfill & making it beautiful again.

How have Dannells products helped you develop your business?

Having such a large range of products & continuously having new products to try & expand my range of home decor.

And finally, how will you be spending your £50 winning voucher?

Ooh! Trying something new… maybe waste paper bins next!
