We’re back in the craft room, also known as “My Upcycled Craft Room” and today I’m sharing my latest project! An upcycled desktop chest of drawers! This has been on my to do list for such a long time; and I’m so excited to share the finished job!
This also tied in nicely with the Upcycling challenge, on the weekly Beyond Craft chat over on Twitter. I’ll share more about that at the end of the post.
When coming up with Valentines craft ideas, I wanted to take the opportunity to try some new things; and do something a little different. With that in mind; I thought I’d try my hand at decorating these cute wooden hanging hearts; which you can find in most craft supply shops.
In this post I’m going to share four hanging hearts, decorated three different ways.
There’s also a tiny cross-stitch update right at the bottom of the post too!
Who’s been carving pumpkins? We have actually decided not to do a pumpkin carving this year, mostly because I usually do it so people know they can trick or treat at our house, as locally, people only visit decorated houses.
There is still some fun though we have got some decorations for the window for anyone pumpkin spotting in the area!
I thought I’d share some of my past creations, and a fun hanging pumpkin sign I made for the window!
This year, more than in the past I’ve gotten more into Halloween, and Halloween decor. Not that Halloween is something I don’t enjoy, but spending more time indoors; means wanting to make the most of the fun! So unlike any before; I’ve found myself getting more into bringing a little Spooky Season into the house.
Here are some fun, creative decorating ideas, you could try if you’d like to do the same!
How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 4)
The final project I am sharing this month; something I had in mind for the garden for a long time. Which I really never actually thought I’d actually do; but we did it last summer! Upcycling the furniture!
Plagued by windy and wet weather at the time; it made this project a little harder than it could have been; but getting Stu in to help, we got there eventually!
How to Brighten Up Your Garden When You Rent (Part 3)
When I started on my mission to brighten up the garden last year; I knew I wanted to include handmade and upcycled elements, but this is sometimes easier said than done. This week I share some easy upcycled candle Jars!
Because our outside space is somewhat limited; our garden is mostly grass, with some unruly hedges on one side, bordered by high fences. We have essentially a smallish square of decking, where we can actually sit. Therefore anything I do, is mostly to make this small space, more pleasant to sit in!
While I was already working on ideas; I knew I wanted to do something a little different…
Painted garden furniture was something I had in mind for the garden; which I never thought I’d actually do! Something that always seemed a little too adventurous, and probably too difficult to do. But in the spirit of doing up the garden, and making it a much more fun space to hang out in; here we are!

As I say, painting the plastic furniture, seemed a little too much of a pipe dream; until I was chatting recently with the lovely people at Pinty Plus about a collaboration!
My craft room has possibly been my longest running work-in-progress and may never be finished! But that is life as a creative person right? In this post I share a fun, quick upcycled notice board project!

The craft room room is a blend of repurposed and upcycled furniture; as well as handmade doors for my craft cupboard, and a variety of handmade decorative pieces.
