Craft Room Update...again!
I wanted to share what I worked on Sunday afternoon. I get this wild hair every few months to reorganize my craft room. This time it started with the mail sorter I recently thrifted and repainted. It prompted me to move something off my desk and one thing leads to another...and several hours later, I am finished. For a few months at least...lol! I do want to paint the green walls white some day....maybe spring break or this summer. I am not loving the green anymore.
Here's one corner of the room. I moved my sewing table down and added this little half table that was just sitting around waiting for a paint job. I paid a whole dollar for it last year and still intend to paint it, but I decided it needed to make itself useful instead of standing around in the way!
Of course, I had to move some things around that were hanging on the wall and I removed a few things too.
I love the little glass teapot that is holding buttons. It needs a lid but it was too adorable to leave at the thrift store and was just $1.
The little table holds several things. My vintage straw dispenser, a large apothecary jar filled with extra glitter, colored pencils, & a candle.
I placed a silver tray on the bottom and added a jar of silverware, a jar of napkin rings, and a few other items. The coins are from the Bahamas from my cruise last summer.
Oh how I wish I was on another cruise!
My message board hangs above.
On the same wall , in the other corner, is my office space. See the mail sorter sitting on my desk and my fabulous new (to me) desk chair. I am still trying to decide on a color. I am leaning toward white, but still think black would be pretty too and aqua still keeps popping into my mind!
Another view of the same area.
I like this arrangement above the desk.
And I love the fabric added to this hoop!
I finally repainted this wooden trash can I thrifted last summer. I used chalkboard paint in case you couldn't tell.
I love that the file cabinet and the metal file drawers were all thrifted and cost about $10 total!
OK...moving over to the other side of the very small room. I am not showing the corner to the left in this picture. It is two shelve full of junk. One is full of things I am eventually going to list on ETSY and the other is just craft stuff. That area is still a
huge mess little cluttered!
My very vintage mail sorting desk. I love this piece! I want to change the blue fabric on the back for something lighter, but will wait until I repaint the green walls.
I still love these milk glass cups I found in Amish country last summer!
I bought these little baskets at Target for $1 each. They are a great size to hold lots of goodies. tied tags on the handles.
I love chalkboard paint for so many things.
I also love my wrapping paper collection. Most of it isn't used for wrapping things though. If I love the print, I buy it and save it for future projects. They get such pretty prints!
One end of the room.
This is my ticket stub jar. It holds every stub from every movie, play, cruise, etc, that I have been on since the hubby and I started dating over 27 years ago!
I wanted to share another sweet little teapot I found for $1. It had the lid but no knob, so I glued a crystal bead on top. It holds beads. Isn't it pretty...:)
That's it for now folks. I hope to have time to share a crafty little project with you tomorrow night.
Have a terrific Tuesday friends.
Until next time.....
