I paid 4 bucks for it! SCORE!
I definitely did not like it the way it was.
It needed some sugar sprinkled on it! ;)
As soon as I got home I painted my new shelf. I wanted a shabby white finish.
|There is a gap in one of the corners, but I usually have a card I've been working on set in the corner so you can't see it. I can live with it.|
I had been looking for some kind of shelf/holder for my Copics for a while and they ended up fitting PERFECT! It is exactly what I need for now! I just love it and for $4 dollars I love it even more!
So far this summer I have re-purposed a table, a stamp holder, a long skinny shelf and now my little shelf for my craft area. My plan is to find 2 more larger kitchen style tables that all match or at least compliment each other and then paint everything white to match in my craft area.
On side note-
Right now I am blessed to have my own craft room for the first time in my life. I wanted my own craft room for years and when I finally got one I realized I didn't have any inspiration being in there all by myself. Who would of thought? Things changed when my fiancee had surgery. I brought a couple tables into our bedroom (luckily it's large enough not to look cluttered) and set up a "traveling craft area" for the time he was layed up in bed. Well it has been over 6 months and my "traveling craft area" is still in my bedroom with a FEW more things then I started with of course! haha
Why am I telling you this you ask? I'm telling you this because I think we all need to find our creative zone. I thought for sure my own craft room would be very inspirational to me and it turned out not to be at all! My inspiration just happens to be in my bedroom (which I do think is weird) but it is what it is. I still have a lot of my crafts in my craft room, but I only get my inspiration to create in my bedroom. Plus it is usually late at night. So where is your creative zone? Where do get your inspiration?
I would love to hear your story!
If I can inspire just one person today I have done my job!
