I turned my post workout shake tub upside down and realised it would make a great shape for casting a planter. Here’s a teaser from the book in one of the cheapest makes out of the 24 projects. It costs less than a dollar or euro in material. Fail safe too.

So, burgundy is definitely my least LEAST favourite colour. I needed a car. I didn’t have choice of what to buy. I ended up with a Burgundy 1997 Honda Civic. Let me cut to the chase. I covered it in knotty pine sticky back plastic. #extremebluepeter

What do you like collecting? Images, erasers, shoes, beanie babies or kitchen gadgets? I like looking for things I collect. The mirror wall project in the book addresses shopping in a clever way. Multiple anything can look good so just choose and dedicate a whole wall to your collection. Screen shot 2014-10-08 at 12.08.18.png

One of my favourite bits of film I made was the hyperlapse where I tried to make the supermarket jeans look good by trying in different tops. This was really hard to recreate in the book and although we tried I’m not sure it works. It’s been raining non stop today, so to celebrate here’s a pic of me in a rain poncho from the book in the remade jeans looking happy. If you’re not familiar with the project, it was about trying to make £5 supermarket jeans look great! #goldenponcho

I imagined what magic paint might look like if a tub of it spilled down my stairs. I think I got this idea from an ad for Kit Kat when I was a kid that featured red and white paint in the same tin or Aquafresh toothpaste. Anyhow. I built this staircase which lead to a small room with not much foot traffic and I decided to use my (extensive) tape collection. I imagined the tapes behaved like liquids.

Making a cushion cover from a sweater has no doubt been done before. What is new is the fact that we can now buy cheap cashmere sweaters at the supermarket. The problem is that often they are very thin and holes appear easily. Cashmere cushion covers however are not cheap. If holes appear, and you can no longer wear your jumper, my easy to follow tutorial will guide you through the step by steps in no time.
