Brushed Steel Switched Sockets.

My Kitchen sockets were looking really tired..
Even after cleaning they looked tatty..
They were also yellowing with age.


I really like the copper switched sockets..
After looking at prices and debating whether copper was a keeper..
I decided on a cheaper more neutral metal..
The brushed steel..

Work Desk for my crafts.

I was using an old Bureau for my craft desk..
This Desk from Ikea gives me so much more space.
Its all so organised, I love it...
I stand when I craft so I got adjustable legs
My desk stands at 83cm high, meaning I dont get a sore back :)...

D.I.Y Wall panels

Its been a few year now since I made these wall panels and mouldings...
Its all had a new coat of paint,  ready for my new work desk...
A wee link to the original panels..




Bookmarks.


Todays sewing,
 Luxurious literary gift for book lovers...


Keyring, bag charms.

While I was playing around with the clay yesterday I also made these keyrings.. 
They took hours and hours between coats of decoupage and top coats...


Heres a range I have in my shop made with reinforced eco vinyl.

Small kitchen space

An odd angle....


Repurposed Drawer

In an earlier blog I had repurposed an old singer sewing drawer.
I had talked about the other repurposed drawers I was using..
Thought I would post up a pic of the one in the Kitchen..
I Love this drawer with its curvy front..
It used to belong to a half moon console table.
It now houses my lovely Cath Kidston finds...






D.I.Y Tile transfers.

Decoupage tile transfers...
These really do last for a long time..
As long as you varnish them...
glue, paper and varnish is all you need.
I just fancied a change...
I painted over my originals with a primer to start.


Some of the original prints I kept but I added a few new ones :) 
next is new plug socket covers...



Repurposed Singer Drawer.

One of my treadle tables I acquired was badly damaged.
Once I fixed as much as I could,  I was left with a spare drawer..
Ooh what to do with this lovely little thing..
Solidly built, chunky wood...


I ask myself what are my storage needs...
Tea and coffee holder for the Kitchen...
no, I have another repurposed console table drawer doing that.
Soaps for the bathroom....
no, another repurposed drawer from an old tool box doing that...
I decided on a key box..I am so sick of looking for lost keys.
