HATS OFF TO ME!
I've done a bit of DIY for my beloved hats
It’s been a busy couple of weeks for me at work, which has resulted in very little ‘me’ time, but it’s all good because I've had this weekend to look forward to; a weekend where I had no work, no friends/family commitments and no domestic duties - a weekend planned just for me! With days like these I like to experiment in the kitchen, spend time in the great outdoors, catch up on television programmes I've missed and do a little bit of playful DIY, the latter being the subject of this post.
During one of my tedious train journeys I read about a DIY project on making a hanging copper hat rack. You know I love hats……………I currently have all my many hats hanging on a coat stand one on top of the other and therefore thought it would be entertaining (for me) to try my hand at making a hat rack that was a little quirkier and showed off my hat collection a little more than the existing one. According to the instructions, all I needed was a copper pipe, pegs and some rope (although I only had string), so I got to work and voila! I’m not sure if I’m going to keep it yet, I’ll probably try it again using thicker rope and more attractive pegs, and I’m curious to see whether I’m left with peg marks on my hats - that’s a definite no no – and where am I going to put all my other hats?
