Before & After Times Two!
Today after work, I felt like being creative. I decided to get in my craft room and see if I could get inspired to do something crafty. I started with painting this ladder that I have had for over a year now. I have just been using it like it was when I bought it, but decided today to give it a little makeover. Here is the before and after....
It is a pale shade of aqua. After it dried, I distressed it a bit and called it done. Here it is back in place in my craft room. Much better now...:)
After I painted the ladder, I decided to tackle the little drawer unit that I shared yesterday.
Here it is before and after.....
It was very cute before but not quite my style, so it got a coat of black paint. The drawers are decoupaged with pieces of wrapping paper. I added the washi tape and numbers after they dried.
I placed it on my desk and the drawers contain office supplies.
The desktop got a little tweaking to make it fit. You can also see the wicker tray I shared yesterday on the right side.
Here's a close-up. I gave it a fresh coat of jade paint which happened to be the same color it already was. It looks much better now. I love this color!
One more thing I wanted to share was an update on the box I shared a few weeks ago. I decoupaged some letters on the front to spell embellishments. It turned out super cute! I also added a vintage globe to the top of the shelf too. Love the colors!
My craft room is such a happy, colorful space. I know it is a little busy for some, but it is a small space and in order to hold all my stuff, it's going to be busy! I love it though and it makes me very happy! It is the perfect place to be creative in. It is always changing and it will continue to change over the years. I have a couple big changes in store for the future that I am excited about!
That's all I have to share for today folks! I'm so glad you stopped by. Have a wonderful Tuesday!
