A new set of drawers…

A £2.75 bargain buy from Ebay is my latest upcycling project completed yesterday.

From this…

to this.

I am now out of drawers and need to bag myself some more bargains but hubby says I’m not allowed any more drawers until I sell some!

But what he doesn’t know is that I’m off to a boot sale in the morning ūüôā


One man’s rubbish……….

is another man’s treasure.

My Facebook friends will already be familiar with the second-hand IKEA chest of drawers that I have “up-cycled” this week but for everyone else, this is what can be¬†done with a ¬£3 bargain from a car boot sale, some funky paper and glue. All mixed with a little imagination and desire to make something nice out of a rejected piece of furniture.

Not only is my new chest of drawers decorative it is also extremely useful. I have transferred my inks, glitter glue, stamping equipment and ink pads to the 6 drawer chest so they are now kept in sumptuous luxury!

You too can upcycle items around the house that you are fed up with, or which are languishing in garages, shed or spare rooms just waiting to be re-born.

I am currently revamping a wooden fruit bowl which has seen better days and which is gradually taking on a new lease of life being covered with Decopatch papers.

Decopatch¬†is simple, relatively cheap but most importantly good fun. So grab¬†all those things that need a make-over, engage imagination and creative tendencies and give Decopatch¬†a go. You won’t be disappointed.
