Craft: DIY baby book caddy

  

You need: a wooden magazine rack, paint & paintbrushes and some old newspaper and some kitchen roll to rest your paint brush on whilst you sip your tea. 

Total cost: £5.20 for two! The racks were a pound each at a boot sale, brushes were a pound for a pack of 5 at Poundland and are so plasticy I just ran them under the hot tap to clean them after! Tester pots of emulsion were £1.10 each in Wilkinsons. 

I chose emulsion because I like the matt effect and because gloss is messy and harder to get a good finish with and I wanted quick and easy! I thought about varnishing them but again, it’s effort and i’m all about ease!

Method: Paint the racks… that’s all there is to it! I did these late at night and left them to dry in the bath over night then touched up the patchy bits the next day. Seriously simple.
