asking for trouble

Cupboards and Drawers

Finished adding drawers and doors to my expedit!

Claire took me to IKEA at the weekend so I could buy the last drawers and doors to finish off the top half of my Expedit (the bottom half is for my records). It looks so much tidier now with everything hidden away. I got the cheapest option which is plain non-gloss white so obviously I’m now thinking about how to decorate them to be a bit more interesting. Looks like it might be time to give Spoonflower’s new decals a go. I’ll let you know how I get on.

Looking at this, I’m also now feeling terrible that I still haven’t finished properly framing my Arecibo perler bead art yet. I am putting that on the list.
