Sometimes if you’re lucky you can make something nice out of something cheap.I found this zinc plate placed in a serving tray I bought at the Wibra’s for only four euro’s.I removed the wood and kept the zinc plate that can easily be used as an template.At the Aldi’s I bought a very large natural linen look cheap tablecloth and together with some textile paint I started stenciling the words on the fabric.And I must say I kind of like the result!
I also painted a brown band and stitched some brown twill tape on the pillows.
I’ve made two round and two square pillows.While at the Aldi’s I also found a dark brown bench cover .I have this old bench on my attic that sits quite well but the fabric is horrible.I already had a grand foulard spread all over it but since this foulard isn’t all that grand anymore I was in need of something new.So I was very happy when I found this cover.For a few euro’s I have a new bench and a few pillows!
Something else I made from a tea box bought at the Xenos.I sticked some old newspapers on the box and some rope,postcard and of course some stamps.And I funny old box I have to keep some new stuff in.
The cheapest way to decorate is with things that come for free.Like this old ‘Jamin’ box that my husband found on his work and of course the Lavender from the garden and the nice cones that you can roll from a simple piece of paper or an old one found somewhere on a flea market fill it with Lavender and glue or stick some nice things to it.
