Take something you hate…

and transform it into something you love.

When you live with other people you sometimes are faced with things you have to live with but you hate. You may not even have a good reason to hate the thing. You may just have an uneasy feeling bubbling up inside you whenever you see the thing.

For me that thing is those big plastic protein powder containers that say things like ‘POWER’ and use too many ‘X’s’ when writing words with an X in them. I wouldn’t win an argument about why they are bad. I just think they are.

So after waiting for months (they are, after all, unreasonably large, eXXXtra large even) I finally got my chance to take something I hate, and turn it into something I love. Plus I needed a fruitbowl.

Do it yourself

I highly recommend it! All you need is:

  • something in your house that bothers you for inexplicable reasons
  • some white glue or Mod Podge
  • old magazines*
  • a desire to destroy and create

*If, like me, you have to wait a few months before you can get started, I recommend starting to stock up on Flow magazines – they have the prettiest paper for this sort of thing.
