Craft Room Reveal!
Yeah! It's Friday at last. Get ready for a zillion pictures of Mom's redesigned and totally functional craft room. Of course we did the reveal Extreme Home Makeover style and had the camera out when we walked her into the room...
I think she thought we had just organized or cleaned it.
I'll give you a quick tour: The Craft Desk
Soup cans hold scissors, markers, colored pencils and brushes
Our jury-rigged paper towel holder. (Dowel rod + ribbon scraps + staples)
And yesterday I showed you how we created our own Stenciled Fabric Window Treatment
The Goodwill Gallery Wall
(most of the frames were found in our homes or Mom's,
but we bought a few at Goodwill and painted them all white to match.)
We searched high and low for interesting things to frame in the gallery wall.
This picture of my grandfather is a favorite of mine.
It's an odd size, so we bought an (ugly) piece of framed art (cheap) at Goodwill, painted over the painting with chalkboard paint and stuck the picture on top. I love it!
My sister embroidered this simple design on a manila folder as a child.
It's probably the only embroidery project she or I have ever completed.
The Sewing Desk
Wrapping fabric around scraps of cardboard is a simple way to organize and pretty it up
Spray painted diaper boxes (with a chalkboard label) became storage for projects-in-process
And remember these baby food jars? Now they hold buttons and bobbins.
So there you have it - 3 days of work and under $100. Thanks for indulging me for a whole week of crafting and projecting. I will share pictures of the kids and more poop stories next week I'm sure.
Happy Birthday Mom!
Other projects that we did as part of this room makeover are:
