yarn box makeover

 
I've been going crazy decluttering.
 
Anything that I don't really love or is not useful
or beautiful just has to go.
 
 
I have a couple of old yarn boxes that store my
 Christmas decorations but one is sure not beautiful.
 
 
So I painted the rims white.



 
I found some fabric I already had and sort of liked
 (because nothing new is coming into my house)
I made up a cornflour paste ~ recipe here ~
and glued the fabric on.
 
 
I love the lid more than the base but it does the trick
and it definitely looks better than it used to.

Clare, I'd never heard of cornflour paste before - thanks for your how-to. It sounds like it will work a lot better than flour paste - and I know just where I'm going to try it! :)

What a clever trick to transform an ugly duckling into a beautiful useful swan. Great idea
