Well, I’ve pinned so many upcycling projects on Pinterest that it was only a matter of time before I took the plunge and had a go myself. I decided to upcycle the boring pine chest of drawers that sits in my office as I wanted something pretty to store my aromatherapy bits and bobs, as well as crafty stuff. All in all it took about three hours and cost nothing at all. I had some very pale blue paint leftover from the kitchen, some gold paint out of my Christmas decorating box and a bit of leftover sandpaper and that was it. It was beautifully sunny in the garden so time for action!
It dried in superfast time and I painted on a few starfish to give it a bit of a seaside shabby look. I agree it’s not the most professional looking artwork – but hey – it’s a start!
The question is, what can I upcycle next?
