Have you ever wondered what to do with with the contents of your recycle bin in order to re use as much as possible? Take a look through my little blog. I hope it inspires you. Please feel free to use any of my ideas but please link back to me if you do.
Our kitchen has needed a makeover for a long time. I hate to see
anything wasted and the cupboards are good and sturdy so it would have
been a real shame to just rip them all out. I thought I would try my
hand at decoupage. I made my own chalk paint using emulsion mixed with
calcium carbonate (bought the CC from ebay) It took a few coats to cover
the oak veneer. The panels are simply wallpaper from B and Q. It
hasnt been sealed yet as I only finished it a couple of hours ago. Tip
learnt from other decoupagers.... use a water based clear acrylic
varnish to seal it. I bought mine from Wickes over in Portrack.
