Home Etc #28

Technology. It’s an extraordinary thing isn’t it?

Due to unforeseen circumstances — and a technological malfunction — I’m currently  sitting in a service station on the M1.

However. Due to technological wizardry I am writing my blog post in Costa Coffee, whilst sipping a Flat White and demolishing a pack of mini Stollen bites.

Such is the nature of the beast; what technology takes away with one hand, it gives back ten-fold with the other.

Anyway, I digress. Back to this week’s Home Etc!

Favourite post from last week came from Lizzie at Marmalade Pie.

I’m always a sucker for a creative upcycle and this little gem ticked all the boxes for me!

Lizzie’s fabulous trinket display

Lizzie had taken an innocuous little cutlery tray and — with a little bit of patience and creativity — turned it into a fabulous display cabinet for her family’s miniature treasures.

I have seen similar in some fairly pricey homeware shops and you could probably make ten of these for the price that some of them are selling for! Such a fab idea and a lovely way to display your tiny bits and pieces.

Our second favourite post came from Sarah who writes over at the blog Extraordinary Chaos.

She’d taken a sad little desk, that she’d bought of Ebay, and given it a fabulous facelift!

I absolutely LOVE up-cycling furniture. I gave a little IKEA chest of drawers a new lease of life earlier in the year with new handles and a lick of paint.

It’s amazing what you can do, with a bit of imagination :)

Sarah’s desk is the perfect example of that.

  1. Indeed, not a bad place to be. Hope your biscuits were scrummy. I am so pleased you chose Sarah’s post – I absolutely ADORE what she did! I want and need one in my life. I STILL haven’t got round to doing my little project I have been meaning to do for the past 2 years. Xx
