Other paper mache ideas............................................
Hope you are inspired, paint, papering, and paper mache will achieve stunning results, let your imagination run wild. Other items that would look great are bed side lockers, cover old kitchen units wilth cook books. Kitchen chairs, tables, look on gumtree for people giving away furniture and then transform it.
Comic books, magazines, foot ball books, cars, tailor make items as gifts. the options are endless and the time flies when you are busy giving new life to old items.
That way your bookshelf doesn't look overstuffed.ReplyDelete
