I’ve been a little obsessed with making things for our home. Partly because quirky, personalised or interesting furniture or decorative pieces are really costly. And partly because I think a bit of homemade decoration gives a home a nice bit of character.
I’ve made a few little bits and bobs but really wanted to change a piece of furniture that would other wise be destined to be replaced.

I’m waiting on some handles for my newly painted bedside tables; but while waiting for them I have painted a battered old bathroom unit. A lick of paint has done it some good ! I am really happy with the result. My first finished up cycled item!
I also painted a dark wooden giraffe statue that’s been half hidden as the dark wood didn’t match the light blues and greys of the rest of our home. I adored my little giraffe so it’s great to have him on show again! I’m chuffed with the result. Planning on up cycling more often!
