Escape To The Chateau: Make Do And Mend (Ep2)

Dick and Angel Strawbridge,

Dick and Angel Strawbridge help families across the UK tackle their design and DIY dilemmas. In this episode, Dick and Angel help to design an eco-friendly bedroom for a teenager, creating the bed, shelving and picture frames from pallets, and a swing chair using the ancient art of macramé. Dick rolls up his sleeves to show Chris how to re-lay and re-point a patio to help make his garden a safe sanctuary for his elderly mum, while Angel teams up with her fellow vintage fan Rachel to breathe life back into an old drinks trolley, using the 17th-century French art of decoupage. And there’s a surprise in store for Angel’s dad, ‘Papi Steve’. Amid it all, life at the chateau goes on, as Dick continues his project of converting an old stable into his dream potting shed. He also discovers an original 150-year-old path, re-instates it with grit from the local quarry and uses old stone from the walls to create a new door frame.
