Spring DIY Project List

Spring is the perfect time to get creative, make project lists (and actually do them), it's also a time to get organised before year-end madness arrives. I'm really fortunate that Daniel helps me with my DIY ideas, both with inspiration and useful insight. He is a keen Gumtree shopper and at first I was hesitant and I wondered how the cool and lovely items I spot on Pinterest could possibly live on Gumtree! I have, however been proven wrong time and time again. I must admit my interest was piqued and I started exploring for myself... finally! Thank goodness I did. I've had three creative projects in mind... a camera lamp, crafty locker storage and I've also had my eye on an old or vintage bicycle. I found this lovely inspiration as well as the creative 'ingredients' to get going on my spring DIY projects. Do you shop for second hand items or via Gumtree? Have you found any treasures while out shopping?

Project One... Re-purpose a Locker
Perfect for storage and a lovely conversation piece.

Project Two... Make a Camera Lamp
This will look so lovely in either my office or our lounge. A few years ago we upcycled an old photography spotlight for our home - this will compliment it nicely.

Project Three... Restore a Bicycle
Daniel's just finished restoring and creating a vintage style cafe racer motorbike. Helping with an easier project should be so much simpler. I would love a bike of my own, but it needs to be pretty!

    I just love your photos and you have great DIY ideas. I made new scatter cushions for my lounge area, a duck-egg colour which makes quite a difference to the room. I really enjoy the calming and tranquil effect it has on me
