A bit of upcycling

 I love finding treasures at the op shops, I don't get to go much anymore as taking 2 kids in and out of the car then taking them in etc, it isn't fun. I love little shelves that can house little things. These are 3 that I have painted and put some lovely paper at the back.
 I have shown this one before maybe, it was a spice rack and I do keep it in the kitchen. It looks lovely now and I love this little colourful corner.
 This one is my absolute favourite. It was a horrible mission brown and needed many coats of paint to get it pretty. I found the green and pink vintage wallpaper in my travels and are my favourites. I did a swap with someone on instagram and got the blue and yellow ones. I am just so happy with how it turned out as I love vintage wallpaper, this one lives in Ruby's room.
This one I initially sprayed blue and didn't like it. So I just went back to the off white and it looks way better. I have a bit of a wrapping paper addiction which I will never use for wrapping. I used lots of the paper as they are all just pretty. This is how is started out....
And now it is full of Lego Mini Figures. Anyone else have an addiction to these? These are the smallest amount of ours, these ones are Ruby's faves. We do love a bit of Lego in our house, one of the houses I made before is full of them.

    I plan on doing something like that now for little ones as well!

    Really happy to see you writing again; outing myself as a loyal reader of yours...
