Bring me outside!

When cleaning up my (husband’s) wardrobe, I found an old belt that is no longer in use. Instead of throwing it away I said to myself: «What can I do with this belt?».

beltI always have a project going, and right now it’s renovating a small cabin in Norway that sleeps 8 and has limited space, so I figured out that I needed to use the empty walls to save floor space.

I decided to use this belt to collect old blankets and quilts and hang them on the wall for guests to bring with them out into the garden, for a picnic, or for sunbathing on the beach. The perfect use for my husband’s old belt!
