For the last year I’ve had a small cardboard box on my desk for us as a rubbish bin. The box was not very attractive – cardboard brown with a big delivery label stuck on it. Last night I decided I’d had enough so I decoupaged it with palm frond paper.
I didn’t have a lot of time to spend on it, so my tearing of the palm frond paper wasn’t neat, and I just threw the pieces onto the box. This morning, with the glue dry, I gave it a coat of mod podge (a clear sealer).
I put the large freezer bag liner back into it and presto, no-one would be the wiser it was a box that arrived in the mail (I hope).
I’m really happy with how my bin turned out – I think it’s quite pretty now – and it looks much nicer sitting on my desk.
What have you upscaled that you’ve been happy with?
