Binder Transformation

Binder Transformation

I love finding office supplies at the thrift store! Sometimes I’ll find postcards or a pile of unused notecards, but not often. I love all kinds of vintage paper finds, but thrifting them doesn’t happen that often around here. Though sometimes I’ll score a few sturdy ring binders. And I love me some ring binders! […]

The Polka Dot Oilcloth Desk

The Polka Dot Oilcloth Desk

Because I am messy I use a big oilcloth to cover the desk where I make my art. I’ve had this beautiful rose patterned one for several years, but it’s beyond saving at this point, full of acrylic paint splatters. Plus, since I bought a new table last year it is about 10 centimeters to […]

I started as a kid and I just never stopped. It’s like brushing your teeth or eating breakfast, habits you keep doing even though you’ve forgotten […]

The magic of white paint

The magic of white paint

Before – and after! I thrifted this herb shelf in a flea market for 5 SEK, then repainted it white. What a difference. The magic of paint continues to amaze me. I wish I could repaint the world! ;-) My little shelf won’t contain any herbs really. I’m planning on hanging it by my art […]
