My name is Rosie and I am addicted to Roberts Radios…there I’ve said it. I can’t help it, I know it’s bordering on an illness but I love them.
So it was with great sadness that I noticed one of my first of these gorgeous things was shedding it’s skin! The vinyl covering was peeling off and it looked rather sad and dare I say it …. tatty.
So last Sunday I decided to give it a little upcycle and peeled off the remaining layer. Then started a simple square pattern with Sharpies. I had to keep changing pens as it ruined the nibs but as I have a few Sharpies (understatement of the year) it was fine. I kept to a restricted palette of yellows and greens.
When I finished I just smeared a little yellow paint over the whole thing and then gave it a coat of my favourite glitter paint.
You can pay to get these recovered professionally which could be a better option but for now this will do for me.
Thanks for reading, back next week
