D.I.Y.

Following my evening of lounging around the house, feeding my face and watching movies, I was in a very creative mood for the rest of the weekend.  On Sunday afternoon, somewhere in between digging through the dress up box, oil paints and boxes of crayons, I came across this old printers tray.  I initially bought it, for about R5, from the SPCA to use for an art project at school but soon decided it was too small and forgot about it.  After looking at it again I decided that it was actually quite cool, and proceeded to spend the remainder of my afternoon fixing it up.

I had to clean it quite well, as it was home to a couple spiders.

Next I cut out a bunch of pictures from old magazines.

I used wallpaper glue to stick in old pages from Black Beauty.  Please don't think of me as a horrible, book-murdering person it was already broken and torn up from past projects:(  

I stuck in my collage and put the shelves back inside...

And then it was finished:D

It's now hanging on my wall and is already filled with a bunch of stuff from my dressing table.  I think this was the first time I've started and completed a project within the same day, so I'll admit I'm pretty darn proud of myself;)
