Mini makes: pretty storage on a shoestring with PlastiKote Spray Paint

PlastiKote Spray Paint helps you tidy up the bottom of the wardrobe with this simple but pretty storage solution. Spray old shoeboxes in your choice of colour, then take a picture of the shoes to be stored and print them out. Stick the picture to the end of the sprayed box and you’ll never again have to rifle through the depths of your wardrobe to find your favourite footwear. Why not spray wooden coat hangers in the same colour for a very co-ordinated look?

Treasure chest feature pic

Blogger star: Rachael Jess transforms a toy chest

We love the things that Rachael Jess makes and we’re delighted to feature one of her most recent makeovers – a treasure chest from an old toy box.

Rachael has a beautiful young son and as she works full time, she treasures her weekends and aims to have both days packed out with crafts, events or activities to make precious memories from.  Once her son is asleep, she gets out the Modge Podge, sewing machine or staple gun and upcycles an unloved item she’s found at the local car boot.  It will usually contain a Marvel, Star Wars or Time Lord theme but apparently she sometimes does ‘normal’! To see more of her fabulous projects, visit her website.

As the step-by-step pictures show below, Rachael puts a lot of thought into her projects and we love the map she created for the lid of the treasure chest and the straps with gold coin decorations on the chest.

As a thank you to Rachael, we’re sending her six cans of spray paint for her next project.
