There's a lot you can do with the humble doily, and they're super easy to find in thrift stores. I saw this idea in the Woolloongabba Antiques store and I instantly loved the colour! So many doily re-uses use white doilies, which are gorgeous, but I can't get enough of bright colours.
They used an old frame, some plain and hand dyed doilies, nails and cotton to create this colourful doily screen and the effect was surprising. The doilies could be dyed to suit any room, plus you get to re-use and enjoy the intricate labours of crochet love!
