Perhaps this is your 2nd, 3rd, or 4th time visiting my blog - if you like my blog - would you be a doll and click "Follow" in the right column, please??? Besides, the more followers I have, the easier it is for me to convince Brian I HAVE to get my projects done - just joking...
OK, actually I'm not jokin.
And believe me, I have A TON of ideas that I can't wait to
Have I lost you yet?? I promise, there's a cute project coming up.
Every good DIYer/crafter needs a good work area. I wrote this post back on April 30, 2009, about how I had been planning to turn my 4th bedroom into a craft room. Eight months later, I've finally started working on my craft room. Well... Better late than never!
Now don't judge me PLEASE, but here are some pics of the room BEFORE - when it was more of a ...uh...place to put our crap room??
Needless to say, the door to this bedroom stayed SHUT majority of the time.
This is the room a couple of weeks ago. It's not a total Betty but a vast improvement (my fav quote from Clueless btw) It started with the dresser...
Then the dresser reminded me that I had some light green window panels I had bought YEARS ago. They WERE in the yard sale pile, sooooo glad I pulled them out!
Then I needed a work table and I remembered I had this table
Still reading?? I promise, you are really really close to getting to the cute project. Hang on!
I found a cute green tablecloth from Homegoods for $6.99 and decided the table would be given a second shot in life.
OK, here is the cute project, thanks for reading my babble this far!
Today, with the help of Brian, WE made something to hold wrapping paper. I'd been
So he came up with a better solution.
We had some extra wood left over from where we had a new back door installed.
Hubby cut 2 even pieces for me
We bought 4 wooden rods from Home Depot ($.89 each)
Then Brian EVENLY put screw-in hooks (5 each) on both sides. These hooks are one of my favorite things to have around, I use them all the time.
Then he screwed both boards EVENLY onto the wall. The word EVEN is the key in this project.
Here it is...I am super giggily over how C-U-T-E this turned out.
Well, I'm super pumped about this. And we only put 2 holes in the wall. Yay.
Step 1 of the craft room complete. Well actually cleaning it was step 1, then painting was step 2. So maybe this is step 3?? Either way, stay tuned for the rest of the completion of my craft room.
BTW ("By The Way" if anyone is as behind in the times as I am) if you ever have a child selling anything for his/her school, club, sports team, etc... PLEASE come to my door. I vowed NEVER to say no to ANY kid that is selling something for a fundraiser. All 5 wrapping papers above have been purchased from a school kid, I'm a pretty good customer if I do say so myself ;)
I hope everyone has a great week!
