My husband use to have this beautiful shadow box in his room when he was a child. He had all his little trinkets and toys in there. When his mother asked if we wanted it, I jumped at the chance.
We then hung the box in the hall outside our bedroom. Josh’s mum still had some of his trinkets from when he was young, so I put them in and added a few of mine.
Today I’m feeling in a very DIY mood. My last big DIY project was nearly a year ago!! I always wanted a bar cart and found this white trolley at a small church op shop for $10!
I bought some sand paper and blue spray paint then got to work. I took it apart, gave it a light sanding and then carefully spray painted the white parts. I love the final result!
I’m continually adding bits and pieces. I particularly like different drinking straws, gin and flowers!
I love our little home! We have been living here for nearly two years!! Here are some of our treasures!
