what are you doing?

That's all I want to say

Reality Sun 18-Aug-13 20:22:37

I can't watch it.

Is this the Fill Your House With Shit thing? I saw the first one and wanted to rip my own eyeballs out.

Fifi2406 Sun 18-Aug-13 20:26:32

Hahaha fill your house with shit! Is a brilliant name or her show! hmm

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 20:27:18

they just had Pearl Lowe smugly telling us that she doesn't like 'disposable culture' and then showing us the caravan a friend gave her for free! Another friend gave her a sofa, another gave her some fabric and another friend then upholstered the sofa for her! All for free! How lovely to be Pearl Lowe..

takes a bitter drink of wine

In fact my nine year old daughter has already pointed out the flaws in this programme

UnicornsPooGlitter Sun 18-Aug-13 20:29:49

I watched one and it was awful - 'We scoured the whole of the UK and gathered together this ramshackle assortment of furniture; now, pop into <insert local town / city> and find an even crapper assortment'.

she's persuading some woman to put a bidet in her new bathroom..yes Kirsty it's free because no one uses bidets!

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 20:45:05


They are finding junk from all over the country..who has the time and money to traipse around finding free bidets to put in bathroom??

(I've had a bad day at work but FGS Kirsty)

I can't watch it, we call it "fill you house with a skip".
I am convinced it is cheaper to go to B and Q and get something clean and new rather than pay for all the travel and time involved in that program.

They have painted a lovely old dressing table mauve and yellow. It's horrific.


What Are You Up To?

This thread is basically the exact conversation my husband and I have had whilst watching this terrible/fascinating programme.

I wouldn't object so much if she stopped describing it all as "completely free" - when you factor in fuel and van hire, fittings and trimmings, labour, and the fact that we don't all have friends giving away caravan/massive velvet sofas (PEARL LOWE), you may as well just buy new stuff you actually like!

Disclaimer: I actually do a lot of "upcycling" (ugh) and practically everything in my house is second-hand, but Kirsty is making me cross.

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 21:15:48

It's all bit dishonest

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 21:19:57

It's bit: "poor people! What are you whinging about? Simply source from fabric from freecycle in Fulham and get your friend Annabel to re-upholster your sofa in return for a bottle of bolly."

BikeRunSki Sun 18-Aug-13 21:21:24

A version of this thread happens every time "Fill Your House With Shit" is on.

And it' s nit Kirsty, it' s luxecycled Kirstie.

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 21:24:31

doe she really think this shit floats?

ubik Sun 18-Aug-13 21:25:08

anyway i've had my rant and am off to bed

4yoniD Sun 18-Aug-13 21:51:29

I know I'm late, but w.t.f. with that lady valuing all the items - several hundred for 2 pine bedside tables painted pink, and £90 total for the "G & Z" letters - are they mad??

Recovering a headboard in grey velvet = nice.
Recovering a headboard in grey velvet with multicoloured buttons = DIY Per Una bedroom.

Pearl Lowe probably scrounged got her drugs for free too. (Waits for flaming.)

Of course everybody has access to craftspeople who will do the adaptions for free too. And a local DIY place that will donate the paints/tools etc for free too.

ubik Mon 19-Aug-13 14:16:39

DIY Per Una! That's it - if Per Una did home interiors it would look like that.

What I was most [shocked] about though was the looks on the couple's faces when Kirsty revealed their home maker - it was like Vintage Changing Rooms - he just looked sick as a dog, she kept bursting into tears and I'm not sure if it was with joy.

Laquila Mon 19-Aug-13 14:49:45

Hah @ DIY Per Una and Vintage Changing Rooms.

Nail. On. Head.

whatkungfuthat Mon 19-Aug-13 15:40:39

Pearl Lowe probably got it for swinging services <joins mignonette on naughty step>

trikken Mon 19-Aug-13 15:50:51

Yes who's got all these tools already and all the paint. It would cost me loads to get the stuff to make this stuff.

ubik Mon 19-Aug-13 19:28:57

Heh, heh Pearl Lowe

Hasn't she tried to invent herself as some sort of edgy 90's popstar

I'd never heard of her before all the wife swapping stuff came out

mignonette Mon 19-Aug-13 20:41:53

<<<<<shuffles up to make room for WhatKung>>>>>>>

Pearl Lowe was a failed indy/Brit pop band member who found fame instead via the men she slept with and had babieswith them. She then managed to present her daughter with the news that her Godfather Gavin Bush was actually her Father instead in the full glare of publicity. PL shovelled copious quantities of heroin into herself (which I do not judge her for) but what I do think is morally questionable is her then making a living via confessionals/books/interviews about said abuse and the awful situation over her daughter finding out who her father was and her self confessed neglect of her children.

PL dyed a few second hand net lace curtains with cheap shocking pink dye and made her 'name' because rock star wives/celebrities with no taste started buying them through The Cross. This somehow makes her 'an expert' on vintage style although her recent book came out about eight years too late to capitalise on the market for tat vintage goods.
