I am obsessed with making things. I am BIG into craft and BIG into DIY – I grew up with a father and step-father who were constantly renovating houses so I often used to help myself to power tools and paint (I’m talking teenage years by the way, not under 12…imagine that though, casual 7 year old that’s helping build the house = BADASS/ health and safety nightmare).
The only problem is, that I, much like my father, have grand ideas, low budget and an even lower attention span. Which equates, much to my house mate’s dismay, to a household filled with random bits and pieces I have found on the street that I am “going to make into something AMAZING”. One day soon I will start Connie and Steve, I promise.
So here is a list of things I have around my house that I’m halfway through making:
1. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = 1x pallet which lives in the lounge…
2. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = 2 halves of a broken fan that lives under the stairs.
3. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = 1x extra-large crochet hook (but I learnt to crochet a few weeks ago so that’s a plus. I’ve had the hook for over a year…)
4. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = 2(!) x old school TVs. I found one on my estate and took it apart (which was super hard and wiry btw I don’t recommend doing that) so its almost there. I just need to find the fish tank that fits. And the other my dad found for me in NZ and it lives in the roof waiting for my return to the homeland.
5. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = 3x indoor plants. Which is better than nothing but it definitely does not look like this dreamy plant shelf.
6. What I’m aiming for:
What I have at the moment = Just the maps. I don’t even have a plan for this one. What can I attach the maps to that will look as slick as this? tell meeee (Jess Ineedy just informed me that a globe would do. OBVIOUSLY)
That’s all I’ve got going on in the DIY section for now.
Don’t even get me started on my list of inventions ideas (which I will never share with you because they’ll make you rich instead of me).
