Wall of Sound

Our house is great but it's all about the magnolia. So much magnolia. Rather than shell out money (and get permission) to decorate, I trawled pinterest for inspiration to give the living room a bit more character. The result was this:


It's also fits the theme of this year's Recycle Week (June 22nd - 28th), recycling around the home. We had piles and piles of unwanted DVDs without boxes, old software discs, and scratched up CDs worth absolutely zilch. Add £1.77 for three packs of blu-tack and, ta-da! Feature wall. :)

All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome.
