Craft Project Lights up Residents’ day
Residents at Barnes Lodge Care Home in Tonbridge were feeling inspired this week when they tried a new craft project, upcycling some old lamps.
In a bid to brighten up and breathe new life into some old furniture, residents of the Tudeley Lane care home decided to revamp some lamps this week, using lots of brightly coloured buttons.
With their basket of buttons in a variety of colours and shapes, the residents got stuck into the job at hand, sticking them in place and filling the entire lampshade.
Fiddly and time consuming, the task required a lot of concentration, but the reward was a lovely new lamp, which the residents could display in their rooms.
Nicky Pett, General Manager of Barnes Lodge said: “Craft activities are very popular with our residents here but upcycling old furniture items is a new one for them. They had great fun making their lamps and are now able to enjoy using them too.”
