How many ways can you use an Owl?
Glass has been on my mind a lot recently, mainly because I am currently lighting obsessed! Watch out for a post soon on lighting options I’m considering for my home. But when I spied these little glass owl jars, I immediately thought of all sorts of ways they could be put to use accessorizing the home. Best of all – they are only 79p from your local Poundstretcher. Who’d have thought Poundstretcher would be selling a glam home accessory? So here’s my round-up of ways to use an owl in the home!
Hands up: who keeps their old magazines?
In my post How to organize a magazine collection I talked about how I’m considering organizing my rather impressive magazine collection. I also admitted to keeping a lot more magazines than your average normal person (if any normal person would like to prove me wrong on this, please have a go!) Yes, the collection moved with me to The Creative Coastal Home, and I have some really good ideas on how I’m going to store and display them. That’s the subject of a future post! Here I’m taking a trip down memory lane and showing you how your magazine stash can provide plenty of inspiration for your home today, especially if you’re a crafter, diyer, or upcycler. Read on!
Yes, I did it! I fitted my own kitchen:
This was fitted a few years ago in my current home. It took me a VERY long time to do! But I’m really proud of the fact that
- I did it!
- I know HOW to do it now, and have the skills for tiling, cabinet fitting, plumbing etc
- I know what I’d do differently if I did it again
- I feel much more confident about what you need to know when fitting a kitchen! Even if I don’t do it again myself, I know what questions to ask and what problems need to be solved.
So what should you bear in mind when fitting your own kitchen?
