Customisation projects are becoming a lot more popular with homeowners as it is a great way to update old furniture and refresh your home interior. A lot of the best ideas can be time-consuming and involve nails, screws or the use of a drill, but we have provided 5 quick tips to avoid starting a difficult project but finishing it to a professional standard.
2. Paint tyres to use as planters
You just get old tires (free from scrapyards and farmers), stack them on top of a wooden pallet (for drainage), and paint them with white household gloss. The painting can be quite haphazard and it still looks good. Then you fill them with soil and plant things in there.
5. Glitter covered waste-paper bin
A plastic waste-paper bin or bathroom bin has an unglamorous job, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be resplendent in bling. Just cover it with Mod Podge (a glue/sealant in one, available from craft shops and websites), then sprinkle the glitter on. Seal with another layer of Mod Podge, and voila. An everyday object with more than a touch of glamour.
