If you're looking for a novel way to brighten up a garden room, how about making use of some of those old vinyls you've got stuffed away in the attic. Lets face it, the day is never going to come when Kylie's "Locomotion" will need to be played! Lizzie at our Livingston branch has put together this very quick guide on how you can acheive this stylish result! The Nordic Guernsey at Livingston received this treatment recently and we think it looks great!

Items you will needWhat you'll need:

  • Kettle
  • Silicone heat resistant/oven glove
  • Washing up basin or sink
  • Cup or small bowl (preferably one with a small base)
  • Vinyl records, singles or LP’s



How to do it:

Record bends with the heatStep 1:
I've given my vinyl’s a little clean (please don’t judge my taste in music as mine were acquired from a skip!)

Step 2:
Pop the kettle on…maybe make yourself a wee cuppa while you’re at it!

Step 3:
Place the mug or bowl upside down in the basin and position the record centred on top. Pop your glove on too at this stage as we don’t want any blistered fingers!!

Step 4:
Pour the boiling water over the record until it starts to soften.

Step 5:
Quickly place the palm of your hand on the centre and use your fingers to create the waves. Steps 3 & 4 may take a little practice but practice makes perfect…right?

Step 6:
Leave to dry and there you have it!

For something a little different why not use them as party food bowls, they’re ideal for crisps and nuts.
