WELL I have been on the hunt for some crafty storage for a while now and I was browsing the home ware section when I spotted a clearance shelf. Now seriously if the normal TKMaxx stock wasn’t enough of a jumble sale, the clearance lines are seriously something else.
I saw these bright coloured objects. I can only describe them as
Now I’m not the most conventional person and my love for interiors doesn’t seem to go away.
I suddenly could envisage lots of creative ways to use these. I know these are technically meant for the ‘kitchen’ but so be it, I am smitten.
I’m going to be using the one on the left to store all my keepsake cards in. And the one on the right to home all my crafty bits.
The little pot presumably meant for cutlery, I am going to be using to store all my crafty tools in, pliers, scissors, knitting needles etc.
As much as I kind of like the retro hearts in a tacky sort of way, I am planning on repainting these like I did here. I’m hoping for a more simplistic and shabby look.
As I said earlier these were on clearance, but they had quite a few at my store of each. The most expensive one was the one on the left at £5, the one on the right was just £3 and the pot was £2. So all in all this lot cost me a tenner, but hopefully I will soon have a whole new storage system :)
I can’t wait to get on with this little project.
& finally this weekend we went strawberry picking. Yum Yum Yum.
This whole basket was £2.45! Bargain. It was super busy, and I somehow managed to get covered in strawberry juice but it was a very enjoyable experience to say the least. :)
