DIY shadow box refurbishย 

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. 

 
To begin with I went to Bunnings and bought sandpaper and varnish. I think sandpaper the whole thing. Then I did one coat of varnish and let it dry. The next day I did one more coat. 

   
  

   

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.

DIY Bar Cart

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!
