Old Church Cottage – HomeCraft

by cottontailsandcupcakes

Our quirky little cottage is starting to take shape now, the walls are crumbling and everything’s wonky but it feels like home and that’s what matters. I’ve had a few of crafty projects on the go of late, project number one is bedroom canvases. Our favourite songs that I’ve then painted onto blank canvases with fabric paint. Cheap, cheerful and all in an evenings work. Total Cost = £6.50.

Project number two took a lot longer, the floral suitcase is a vintage Antler case that I have decopatched. It took around 8 sheets, nearly a whole pot of glue and a back breaking month but I think it looks lovely. The case itself was bought from a boot sale for 50p! It’s now storage alongside the tan case which was also 50p at the same boot sale. Total cost for both cases = £12.

Last but not least, project number 3. A vintage map table of the world. One bog standard Ikea LACK table, one vintage world map, modpodge and two coats of clear varnish. Voila. Total cost = £10.
