I had mentioned on previous posts that I have this renewed enthusiasm for all things crafty... So, despite the reduced amounts of energy I get now (associated with being firmly in the 3rd trimester now, I guess), I got a couple more things done in the baby/guest room:
- A revamped basket for guests/baby toiletries (depending on who's using the room at that point) - I had received the basket (originally lilac) as a present and as part of a set of lavender products years ago, and when we moved to this house it was perfect for the lilac room (as I knew we wouldn't re-decorate in there for a while, despite my dislike of the colour). Now, with the new colour scheme, it's out of place. But I like the little basket so much (for keeping all bits and pieces in there, rather than all over the room) that I decided I would make it one of my little projects: A lick (or 4!) of white paint and a fabric base to match the soft furnishings in the room. Fun and free!
- A cover for the tissues box - I know I didn't have to do this, I could just buy green tissue boxes. But, I have so much fabric left from the when I got it for the room furnishings, so I decided to do the cover (you never know, they might not have green tissue boxes when I go to the supermarket next, or worse, they might stop doing them all together!!! :P ). And here it is:
