Happy organised New Year
Anyway, so as I am still semi amid chaos until such time (and I will post up some before and after pix as proof) I am drawn, magpie-like, towards images online of stylish order and organisation. Like the beautiful typesetters' tray-turned-jewellery display, above. I do love a bit of reappropriation of old objects and this gives a fresh – and more practical – twist to the trick of using these now defunct objects to show off bits and bobs.
This one is from a US-based Etsy seller, Bluebird, for around £60 – great if you're Stateside. But if you're in Europe, even though they offer international shipping, clearly that would be madness. So why not make your own?
I found an eBay shop selling the typesetters' trays for £25 (plus £9.50 postage). All you need is an assortment of little hooks and eyes, which you'll find at any DIY store, or try Screwfix if you don't fancy venturing out in this crazy weather.
