Cath Kidston works her magic on IKEA - mini makeover!


I promised my next post would reveal what I'd been doing with the CK print. Well, it was a packet of tissues. And a filing box I found in the Ikea sale last Saturday for around £1.50.



And a lot of PVA glue.

This was such a fun project, and all three of my children wanted to help out.
I've made this as a eye-catcher for the craft fair I'm doing.


The tissue went on like a dream.

So, for a total of under £2.30, I'm very happy.


I've got another one lined up already.

Well done Little Gem and Mary Poppins for guessing it was decoupage! And thank you for all your comments on my last post.

Very impressive! It looks lovely and what a great way of using those tissues - far too nice to be wasted!!!

It's just beautiful. I have just recently discovered Cath Kidston. I would love to get my hands on some of her fabric. I've been watching E-bay. Can't find a dealer here in the US. You and your helpers have done a great job.

What a clever idea! It looks great and I'm sure it will make your stall stand out!

LittleGem said...

I knew it!! And what a fine job you've done it looks so expensive! Did you have to tear the tissues up or did you just put the whole sheet on? Very pretty indeed Lace xxx

Well done Lacey :) It looks so fabulous, I love Ikea we went a couple of days ago and it was nice and quiet, and like you bought a couple of pillows, they were for me though, lovely and cosy :) don't know if I am the only one, but can't go to Ikea without buying some candles too :)
