Upcycling – Kids Stool from a spindle

As you well know I have been known to stumble across a lot of (what many would refer to as ‘junk’) items for my up-cycling projects from the footpath.

I stooped to a new low for this one. They were found in the skip at our block, where the builders toss all their house building remnants (that sounds a lot better then rubbish – doesn’t it!). Actually, if the truth be known, I personally didn’t rummage around in the skip to find these – my mother-in-law did! What hope has our little Heidi got with the foraging genes on both sides of the family!!!

We were showing the progress of the house to my husband’s parents one weekend, when I hear a muffled voice from a head diving into the skip “Hey Bernice, look at these… you could make them into little stools for Heidi”. I didn’t even need time to think about it. They were in the boot of the car as my (very understanding and often perplexed) husband lets out another sigh!

Wall discs – try some circular decor in your home!

Have you ever stopped to notice that almost everything we put on our wall is either square or rectangular?

I love these wall discs, simply because they’re circles … and also because you can change the material if you get sick of it (which is perfect for me – I change my decor with the seasons).

These are ideal for all ages – I gave a set of 3 to 2 nieces for Christmas, one who is 6 months old and the other is a teenager.
