While visiting relatives over the Chinese New Year season, an uncle introduced me to a shoe cabinet he had made over the school holidays. It was ordinary – simple, practical. But it it reminded me of the buzz of handling a jigsaw, slicing planks and piecing together stage props for the local drama club.
But like everything in Singapore, creating stuff on your own is just so costly. I was shocked to hear that even chipboard could cost $30 a plank! Sounds completely over priced to me. I’m convinced I can find better.
These found-object inspired projects and ikea hacks were so darn good-looking and do-able I just had to repost them.
