Changing Old into New

I was watching Kirstie Allsop new tv programme the other day (the latest on is sitting recorded ready to watch) and it started the brain cells to what I could change in the house!!  I adore the sanded effects of furniture but I would go white washed.  I am definitely going to go and hunt out some of these tiny shops that sell old furniture!

With that in mind when I did a project for the Do Crafts blog this week I challenged myself to make something out of old packaging.  It wasn't long before I found something!

This is my photo version

This is my 'topper' version!

So can you guess what I used?

The details of how I made these projects and what I used can be found {HERE} on the Do Crafts blog.

Have fun up-cycling!

Both gorgeous, I love the holly leaves, it's definitely worth looking out for tatty old furniture that could look pretty with some tlc, I do stuff like this all the time and you can pick things up really cheaply, it's lots of fun too
