Recycling

A few weeks ago I decided to give the bathroom a little treat, it is in need of a repainting, as it is five years since I did anything there, but I neither had the time or the energy. So instead I made a little heart for the door handle from an old denim shirt
I made two new cushions for the wicker chair one from some pretty blue check material, and the other from the old denim shirt leaving the pockets intact on the front.
I gave the airing cupboard a clean up too and it all looks bright and welcoming again for a little while longer.

You are welcome to drop by my Christmas Time Magic blog to see how my Christmas preparations are coming along.

Big Hugs,

Margie

That's an inspiration! I love using recycled fabrics. Thank you for the nice comments about my photos. It's difficult to take a "bad" photo in Ireland!

Oh this is darling Margie, I just adore the new look you created and SO much easier than taping, moving, covering, and then painting everything, ugh! ;-) Perfect choice!♥

That is a clever idea with the denim fabric Margie...the chair looks sweet and the area very warm and welcoming in that pretty shade of blue, xv.
