Hat boxes

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.
