Recycled furniture (part II) – storage solutions

It is safe to say that almost everyone suffers from storage issues – we never have enough space for our things (whether they are worthy of keeping or not!).

Already I have shared my love for using recycled items in my home in a recent post, however I forgot to share the variety of recycled storage solutions I have collected over the years. I have found my solutions in the most unlikely places.

Creating a canvas – why not use patterns?

Decorating the walls in your home is a very personal thing – it’s like choosing an additional housemate, because you have to live with your decision every day. I found myself being so particular about size, colour and mood of my wall decor that I end up making them myself. The decision to do so is simple, but then I still need my creative inspiration to come from somewhere … and worse still, I need to actually like the result. If you re wanting to start creating your own wall decorations be careful not to find your inspiration from something that is or was ultra fashionable, or it will look dated before you have even finished (unless that is the look are after!). I try to do something that reflects my style, and is different to anything else I have seen – an eclectic mix of many things.
