This is another scrabble frame I’ve recently made for a customer. I absolutely love the look of hessian and burlap, and I think it gives this frame a country cottage feel.
I think I now have all my family and friends on the look out for vintage scrabble boards!
I turned an old food storage jar into a personalised savings jar with some hand cut vinyl.. I love how this turned out and will be making myself one soon !
For my birthday, I was bought some Montana Gold spray paints, and decided to upcycle some metal geometric shapes that I had bought from Next.
I used Vanilla, Flipper and Green Apple, and love how they turned out!
I am excited to use more of these spray paints on the antique frames I have been
This is a shadow box I have made for my family; I used scrabble tiles (found in a charity shop for £2.50) and some material I picked up in a vintage store.
It took me a while to measure out where I wanted to place the pieces, but I love how it turned out and would love to commission some more of these.
I’m so happy it’s Friday- and looking forward to some sunny crafternoons this weekend.
We had a stall at a local carboot, and below are some of today’s finds.
All of these items need a lot of TLC, but I’m excited to upcycle them, especially the small table which I plan on turning into a stool.
Keep posted for updates!
