I woke up early this morning and immediately made the decision to trot along to the local car boot sale in search of IKEA mini drawers and other bargain items to decorate and upcycle. I was on site by 7.30am and already there were hundreds of people already set up and selling their bits and pieces.
My main objective was to find some IKEA drawers so I walked quickly up and down the rows and luckily I found two sets at real rock-bottom bargain prices. I couldn’t believe my luck but more about those as and when they get the upcycling treatment.
As well as the mini-drawers, I found a set of 3 hat boxes which I bought for £2. They were sitting on the trestle table, looking very pale and sad just crying out for me to take them home and brighten them up.
So I did.
OH you´ve done a great job! I´ve got a bit of a thing about hat boxes. What a bargain!
Thank you it was a bit of an experiment but I’m quite pleased with the results. Next time they will be matching! There were loads of hat boxes at the boot sale but I couldn’t carry anything else! I will definitely be buying more 😀
I love the facelift for the boxes. The trio look beautiful. With their shape, they could almost have the effect of a 3 tiered cake.
Thank you 🙂 Definitely wedding-cakeish!
How do you do that? See something plain, envision the potential beauty, and make it happen? What a remarkable gift.
I have no idea Judy; perhaps it’s the challenge! I’m not very good at relaxing so I always have to be doing something. Doing stuff like this keeps me relaxed and chilled out but busy at the same time. It’s a win/win but I’m running out of room!
I am amassing a pile of boxes. This is your fault!!
Ha! ha! and I’m busy crocheting squares for a throw…..that’s YOUR fault!!!!
Loving your work!
