You know you hate them, but also love them! They just come in so handy, especially when you need them! They are perfect for in the kitchen, on the couch during the romantic but heartbreaking movies or just to start with a clean desk! Even though the brands try to make them look nice, a leather cover will make them even more pretty. In this post, I will be looking and gathering inspiration for one of my new projects, a leather cover for that, oh so ugly looking, tissue box!
I don’t know if you have the same, but somehow I always have a cold in the summer. I think those freezing air conditions are the cause but without is also no option… Or maybe I have a cold due to the evenings once it will cool down and I am still wearing my summer dresses … Either way, that tissue box is the whole year around in the house. So to pimp it a little I could make it another ‘box stitch cover’ just like I recently have done with the concrete diamond paperweight although some change every now and then will keep it interestingly! I am not sure what style I will apply, maybe a minimalistic look, or blend it in with the furniture, or make it a real eye-catcher…
Often I have a clear image in my head. When this is not the case, as with this tissue box, I will start at my favourite inspirational place … PINTEREST ;)!

I have gathered some new inspiration on my Pinterest – Interior Board. Some of them are shown here, below.
I do have some brown leather left just like the diamond paperweigh and the custom lasered laptop case or maybe a little croco in my ‘soon-to-find’ new interior! Or maybe an other technique, instead of boxstiching again…
Maybe I will find an awesome piece of leather in Italy… who knows. Stay tuned for the making of!! But don’t forget to follow me and check out my latest pins on Pinterest!
