The easiest way to change the look of your home is with a can of paint. Just imagine your livingroom with all the furniture painted a different color (like everything painted yellow…yum!). Paint is like a magic wand.
My neighbour gave me an ugly brown cabinet that we repurposed so it could be used to store my thread. First the legs were cut off and castors added so that it could be moved around easily. Then it was painted white. ABRACADABRA! On top is a tray made from a fan covering that I found near the dumpster. I covered it with papier-mache then painted it blue and white. I use it for my current sewing projects so that they can be moved around from one room to the next.
Sometimes I feel like a magician!
