My Creative Space

This week I’m taking part in Kootoyoo’s my Creative Space.

I transformed an ugly old box into some pretty storage for my art supplies using some leftover paint.

It was the simplest thing to do and only took about 15 minutes, but there’s something really satisfying about being able to pretti-fy something with things that you already have kicking around at home.

    There's surely no better partnership than a paper doily & a typewriter.

    Love the old type on the doily. Old to new is so satisfying.

    Very pretty indeed. I have some paper doilies kicking around. No typewriter though… I really think that's what makes it. Gorgeous.

    That looks sensational! The pics were downloading really slowly and I first thought that the before was the after. I was pleased when i realised my mistake!
