I really enjoy having our own little place. The only thing with renting a fully furnished place (and especially renting out someones holiday home – ie, they come down in December and we have to move out) is that I feel there isn’t that much we can do to make it feel like our own.
We can’t paint the walls, aren’t keen to drill nails to hang things (“if you do just make sure you don’t crack the whole way down the wall” – yeah, no pressure?), can’t buy our own furniture… so I sometimes feel I need to find DIY crafts to make which will create minimal damage.
And of course, it is no secret that I LOVE Pinterest. I feel like our walls are a bit empty in our lounge, bedroom, and corridors and really want to make something pretty to hang to make the place feel a bit more “Greg and Lee-Ann”ish. Also, I’m feeling like I need to do something creative.
After having just made an awesome cupcake stand (well, my dad did. I inspired him ie gave him the idea) I’m not to look for my next new idea. This of course, means scouring Pinterest. I’m not sure yet what I’m going to do, I feel I might want to look for cheap blank canvases to start off, or at least some cheap vintage frames, there’s so much to do with different frames. But who knows.
Here are some of the latest DIYs I’ve pinned, or things I’d love to make.
