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 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.
