Kirstie's Fill Your House For Free

Recommended Posts

Channel 4 website: Kirstie's Fill Your House For Free.

"... where to find lovely things for your home."

Or... don't even attempt to fill your house... with things, lovely or otherwise. That's free also.

Perhaps she's hoping to persuade everyone to outlive the shoeboxes they're currently crammed into just in time for a new round of property porn shows sometime later in the decade.

Krusty helps people fill their house for free because they're so maxed out on debt they can't afford to buy a chair to sit on. Still, they're on the ladder... not that they can afford a real ladder.

Anyone can fill their house for free....it is getting a house that can be filled that is the main problem...and what makes it worse is people know this and are exploiting it for their own greedy gains. ;)

Interesting - and so Property Porn has gone full circle. It started out in the last recession with programmes which were about how to tart up your house in order to sell it, or how to furnish it for pennies. Then it morphed into full-on, Krusty ramping, BTLs, homes in the sun etc. Now we're back to picking up discarded rubbish and making it into furniture.

You've got to admire Krusty's PR people for managing that transition.

Meanwhile her former presenting buddy (the failed estate agent) has become a daytime quiz show presenter.

Your post sounds like an ad.

I briefly looked at Freegive site, but 'about us' info explains very little & does not say who is behind the org.

What's the difference between Freegive& long established worldwide org Freecycle ?

She'd sell her grandmother for £5.

I was a Krusty Virgin - never seen or heard her until this thread piqued my curiosity.

OMFG

Starts with 'Up Cycling' in a rather teenager 'excited' style

With keywords like 'drawers', 'naked' 'no bubbles' and 'keeping knobs on', it has to be a spoof, surely shirley

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fSAk9KtVS7A&feature=youtu.be

Some of the drawers on the wall should have safety tape around the edges - I fear bumped foreheads and much swearing

So, wall paper, carpet adhesive, masonry drill bit, Rawplugs, and screws - perhaps even a drill. A nice little earner for B&Q and the homeowner has a nice pile of junk on the wall and a now useless chest of drawers.

Another PLUS for RENTING for many people. A good landlord would never let their tenant be so stupid - in effect, saving them from themselves.

Edited to add : Does Kirsty fancy herself as a 'bit of crumpet' ?

Thanks for the vid. I hadn't seen Krusty's craft-based efforts before and her 'Blue Peter' style really brings it home. Her target audience is people who really should be under constant supervision, whether they're messing around with glue and sticky-back plastic, or taking out half-million pound self-cert loans.

Perhaps Krusty can do an episode on shoe boxes where, with a bit of shiny paper and some throw cushions, they can be transformed into 'dream homes' for young urban professionals.

That is the funniest thing I have seen for a while.

Coincidentally I have and old sent of drawers that I no longer have a use for. I was considering taking them to a charity furniture place so they could be of use to someone, but now I have the inspiration to mount the drawers to the wall so my place looks like an old junk shop. Kirstie is such an inspiration ;)

Couldn't have summed it up better

Having viewed it I feel more disconnected from my fellow UK human than before, and more sure that the economy is doomed - or perhaps I am a snob and a pessimist.

Its incredible really but Kirstie and Gordon Brown were the two people who did the most to bankrupt the UK and a large proportion of the population.

I wonder how many bad debts and ruined lives there are out there down to the wonderful Kirstie.Her shows really were like watching a country commit suicide.

Kirstie and Gordon Brown - a place you should never let your imagination wander

To sell your home you need to make it aspirational. That means it needs to be 'decluttered' so I guess the drawers will have to come down - oo err, missus

"we all have drawers that don't work"

Yes, especially when they are screwed to the wall.

I've never sold a house and feel exhausted just watching that video - I think I'll continue to rent

Seems she's made loads of those B&Q videos. I'm not going to post, but there is even one telling you how to fold coloured paper round a box - aka, how to wrap a present.

With the key tip, "if you want the bow to be 3/4 the way up on the front you have to cross the ribbon 3/4 the way up on the back".

Yes I watched it.

Well you would need to buy your own place first as most BTL's dont go much on any kind of wall hangings.

Now if she had come up with a way of decorating a place without damaging a landlords walls and fitments she would have been onto something

It seems that sometimes people need to be saved from themselves though, so perhaps renting from a BTL-er is best - a blessing in disguise

There is probably a market for a kind of flat pack home that you move into a BTL and you live in and decorate that to your hearts content, leaving the landlord structure prestine and intact. :rolleyes:
