  1. I totally understand your urge to declutter as we did the same when we decorated our lounge. Had a monster display unit too, emptied and dismantled for decorating and decided to dispose of it. Like you, we found nobody wanted it despite being solid teak so, chopped it up and took it to the tip - shameful, but there it is. Good luck with you decluttering and decorating, matey

    Fab makes, love the colours of your tag and the nostalgic monochrome of the first
