i am back on the isle of wight for the weekend to celebrate my mumma's birthday, so for 2 whole days i have internet! i am far too excited about this.
here is the DIY that i have been meaning to post for ages- i actually bought the magazine rack back in january, but only got round to re-vamping it last month.
the magazine rack was £3 from a charity shop, and i knew that it would work amazingly to hold my knitting bits, so after sourcing some reduced paint from b&q for £1, and grabbing some sandpaper, i was ready to make it look...less seventies shall we say! i stupidly forgot to take a before pic, but you can work out the colour from the "in process" pics.
sanding it down took the longest- it was only half way through that i realised taking it apart would make it a lot easier (doh) but after that, it was easy peasy- 3 coats of paint left over night in between each, and voila!
overall, i think the project cost about £6 which i'm chuffed about; it fits perfectly in the new flat and shows off my knitting bits.
what do you think?
so glad to finally be writing again, i have lots more posts lined up- if all goes well i should have internet sorted in the new flat by next week :)
also, a big thank you to my blog-bestie kate, who mentioned me in a recent post which i'm sure is the reason for the increase in readers over here!
