Craft Room Update

I was browsing Pinterest for some craft room ideas and found a wood teacup shelf that would be perfect in my craft room.  I happened to have one that was handed down to me from my mother and ended up in the garage last year with no plans of ever entering the house again.   I'm so excited that I found a way to give it new life and save a piece of my families treasures.

Heres what you need:
Sanding paper
Spray Paint Primer
Spray Paint in your favorite color (I used Matte)
Spray Paint Laquer

My original teacup shelf

Lay your project down on a sheet and sand
{don't skip this part- trust me, the paint WILL bubble}

After Sanding, you will spray Primer and let it dry
{I chose quick dry Primer because I'm impatient}

Pretty Paint Time
{Make sure to get all the crevices and underneath the shelf since you will be looking up at it when you hang it}

Time to hang
{Notice all the "Stuff" on my table}

Now I'm all organized
{I put the ribbon on the shelf that I am currently using for orders and projects so it's close by}

I now have more working room for my projects
{and I love the color- it makes me happy to work in this space}

Did you notice there was no sewing machine in the above picture?

This is why?

Ashley was feeling a little unorganized so she made herself a bed organizer to hold her Ipad, remote control and other secret items
{It's fun that we can share our craft love}

So I know you think I look sooooo organized, right?


Everything is somewhat organized and labeled in the cabinet but needs more help
It's my next project

So, look around and see what you can find to save, refresh and make new again~

What are you planning to refresh in your house?

I have been wanting to do a little purging. I seem to have crafts I no longer enjoy taking up space. I just need to find the time and “guts” to purge them!
