Kids room DIY: Squash racquet mirrors

What a brilliant idea for a kid's room - Oval mirrors glued over the strings of some vintage squash racquets. And believe me, this one has budget DIY written all over it. I was dragged to Vinnies this morning by Kayte, who wanted me to eyeball a very cool vintage-y, bamboo-y, table-y thing (more on that makeover later!), and they had oodles of squash racquets for a measely $5 a pop. Oh, and PS Simply Google "Custom mirror" or something to that effect, and you'll find dozens of businesses in your area who'll cut one to size for you. Voila!

  5. Toԁay, I went to the beаchfгont
    with my children. I found a sea ѕhell аnd gаve
    it to my 4 yeaг old daughtеr and sаid "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the
    shell to her еaг anԁ screamed.
    Τhere ωas а hermit crаb іnsiԁe and it pinchеd her ear.
    She neѵer ωаnts to go back!

  8. I don't know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the written text
    on your content are running off the screen. Can someone else please comment and let me know if
    this is happening to them too? This could be a problem with
    my web browser because I've had this happen previously. Many thanks
