Yes, it has been a while. I haven’t had a chance to do anything in the craft room for ages…. until this past week… and I’ve done a lot since then. (Which is why my posts have been a bit sporadic)
I totally reorganized everything! I had a very ugly plastic drawer storage chest that I was tired of looking at. So… I cleaned out the drawers and recycled it! I used the frame in what we call the “pipe shelf, ” and put the small plastic bins in to make them more accessible (I had them stacked which meant every time I wanted anything I had to remove the whole stack).
I hung the curtains I bought to cover that shelf so I could see how I have to hem them.
I was looking at “task” chairs for at the sewing table (that I am going to start refinishing tomorrow) until Dillon of all people suggested I just get a chair cover! I found one on Amazon for under $15! The cheapest task chair I found was around $55, so a big savings! I topped it with a dollar store chair pad.
I hung up a wire rack, my washi tape dispenser and a cute, small item store above the dresser and change table I refinished earlier.
And I finally hung the awesome barn door chalkboard Chris got me for Christmas last year 😳. (I am thinking about painting the electric fireplace in some funky colour and leaving it in there for cooler days.
I put up a little shelf, hung my framed storage board and hung a really cute key/door trim thing I found when I was out somewhere… it’s perfect for hanging the new sewing scissors I got for Christmas! And I finally started putting my thread on the wire rack my mother-in-law gave me years ago!
I ordered some nice fabric to make a pretty sewing machine cover as well. I can’t take the chance of one of our cats getting into the thread lol. (Don’t mind the pile of recycling I forgot to move before I took the picture)
And I reorganized behind the door somewhat. I have some of my granddaughter’s stuff I like to keep there, as well as my wood for future projects.
I bought these really pretty wall stickers for after it’s all painted too!
And Friday I bought the paint!!!!! I went in with a colour swatch but when I went to the counter to have it mixed I saw a really close colour for half the price in the Oops bin and ended up buying that!
That means I’m getting close to it being done and being able to actually use it! I am so excited for that day to arrive! To finally have our pretty craft room ready to use!
I’m going to save showing the paint colour until it’s all done… for our big reveal… which will hopefully be in a few weeks!
