Reusing Old Hard Cover Books

Posted by Beverley McNaughton on

You see them everywhere, old hardcover  books that are either out of date, stained, damaged and just of no use anymore. Now you can reuse them to make great gifts, use them as jewellery boxes, to store your TV remotes in on the coffee table, or to store little bits and bobs that have no home. So duck down to the second hand store or tip shop and grab yourself a hard covered book.  Think about what you want to use it for,  eg. if it’s for TV remotes then you have to have something larger so you have enough...

Potato and Onion Box Sunflower Fields Makeover

Posted by Beverley McNaughton on

I picked up this little potato box a couple of weeks ago at a thrift shop.  She was plain old pine, and not too pretty, but what I loved about her was her petite size.
These boxes can sometimes be quite bulky, which is fine if you are filling it with enough potatoes to feed a tribe, but for those of us who have just two in the house, this was the perfect size and I decided was a keeper for me.

I mean how could I not, these were FREE…… I just couldn’t pass them up.  I am going to just try and sneak them into the carport and let him ‘find’ them later I think. Anyway, I will be doing different posts on how to use these wonderful pieces of...

After a spray with my White Lightning mix (available here > https://bit.ly/374rXNK), and a wipe down with a clean cloth, you can see how looks can be deceiving.   I had to wash and rinse twice to get rid of all the ingrained dirt. There is also a video available on how to prep your funiture using White Lightning here...

With Christmas just around the corner...

Posted by Beverley McNaughton on

With Christmas just around the corner, it’s a great time to make some handmade Christmas decorations for your tree and as special gifts for teachers, friends and loved ones. Handmade items made with love have so much more sentimental value than store bought items.   So, first of all, get out all those decorations and pull out the old, sad looking, scratched and past their used by date, baubles that you have been hoarding.  Maybe you have ones from a colour scheme that is soooo last year.     Give them all a good clean with some tsp to get...
