Storage (String)

I found this rusty crown pot at a table-top sale a few years ago. As there are no rules to decorating, when string came to mind, I knew I had found the perfect pot when I saw it. It's metal and it's tatty but I love it :)

It is very heavy and it might well have been forged as a candle holder but it only cost me 50p and my household string has sat in it since the day I brought it home.

String is something we all use and there is nothing worse than trying to unravel it. I can say that an unruly ball or two has ended up entwined with shoe laces, old paint brushes and spare pegs under the kitchen sink before.

Not any more!

Lella Loves... Storage

By using items not intended for their original purpose, you create your own sense of style. It seems so simple but let your love of pretty, unusual or pretty unusual be your guide to letting your creativity follow its path.

It is the best way to recycle treasured family pieces as well as your own flea market finds. If you find something which works for you, live it and love it.

Many thanks for reading.
