Styling cabinet

When my old bedside cabinet started to look past its best I decided to spruce it up. First I painted it white and then I completed a striking jigsaw puzzle and stuck it to a stiff board with glue. I attached this to the top of the cabinet with varnish. Now my bedside cabinet looks fantastic.

Letter from the art

I'd always admired decorative 3D letters in craft shops and wanted to make my own. I cut an old cereal box into two L-shapes, then held the sides in place using masking tape. I covered the L in papier mache and spare paint, before decorating it with paper roses made from old newspapers and stick on gems. It's just what I've always wanted.

Write here

I was fed up of always rooting around for my pens to do my puzzles, so I came up with an idea. I cleaned out an empty gravy container then covered it with wrapping paper attached with glue. Now I always have pens at hand to do my Take a Break competitions.
