A snippet of life as I’ve seen it for the last two, six, twelve, more months (I suck at timely and regular updating).
I had a wild idea a few weeks ago – how cool would a disco ball planter be!? I’d never seen one before and I thought with a nice green flowing plant it could look really lovely sitting on my newly built shelves. Since making this project I actually have seen that there is aContinue reading “Disco ball planter”
I really need to update this blog but I can’t be bothered right now, so here’s some photos I’ve taken recently instead to get out of writing anything substantial. All taken with iPhone 5. Perth City, WA. Fremantle, WA. Fremantle, WA. Fremantle, WA. Street art in Fremantle, WA. Street art in Fremantle, WA. An amazingContinue reading “Update via photos”
I found this tired little plant stand for $2. I wanted to do something to jazz it up a little bit and make it more funky. I had a bunch of jars laying around so this is how it went down: After sanding it back lightly, I used painters tape to create a herringbone printContinue reading “DIY: Revamped planter stand”
Forgot to take process photos for this one but made this hanging planter out of a doily and embroidery thread. Really love this one! I’m going to make some more.

I then sanded it back, gave it an undercoat and then a couple of coats of this glorious glossy blue. I then cut aContinue reading “Before & after: gumball terrarium”
I’m not entirely sure what I was ever intending to use this for. For $2 I wasn’t ready to pass it up and I was sure I’d figure out something I could do with it! I had a can of black spray pain laying around, as well as a giant piece of cardboard, so IContinue reading “Before & after; cane tray”
I spent a good hour in a second hand shop finding the right sized frames – and I aaaallllmossttt got there. They didn’t all measure up exactly and if they did it would probably have ended up looking more ‘finished’, but I kind of like that it has that used/distressed/scrappy look. Seeing as it isContinue reading “Before & after; mini greenhouse”
Picked up this little cutie for $3. The rest (paints, etc) I had on hand :)
