Life is moving so fast right now, I just can't seem to squeeze out enough hours in the day to get everything done that I want to!
I really didn't get anything done yesterday, but here's another element to the craft room that I am so happy with.
Buh-bye dump room, hello creative inspiration room!
The one I had before was too flimsy and cheap. Plus, I liked that it added another accent of black.
If you look over to the left of the photo, you see my teensy weensie silverish curtain rod. I had curtain clips before and some fabric that looked great on the bolt- and then the love affair kinda fizzled once I hung it up. Here's the before:
I'm still on the hunt for more milk glass storage- you can see how I'm using it here for paintbrushes.
The clear mason jars are great cheap storage too. My little red takeout box is holding saved fortunes for a project I am going to do once the room is in working order!
The little glimpse of the pegboard.
I have literally been fantasizing about this pegboard project for months!!
Seriously, I have been so anxious to get this done!
Here I am, in all of my evening comfort wear.
We had a large framed print above our tub that I was done using, and I thought if I glued the pegboard to the frame, it would make it a whole lot prettier than just the board hanging there.
I spray painted the frame white and let it dry out before the next part.
When I bought the pegboard at the bargain shed, the guys behind the counter asked me what I was making.
I told them I was making a tool holder for my craft room.
They nodded, and were slightly intrigued. Emphasis on slightly.
I was also buying the dowels for my gun rack / ribbon organizer. So I told them about that, and they got big grins on their faces and thought that was pretty cool.
A gun rack.
The emotions it brings out in people. LOL!
Gorilla glue, Martha, Jamie and some clamps helped me out:
I let it dry overnight, and then put some spacers behind the pegboard so I could use my tool hangers.
And here it is, in all of it's functioning goodness:
I still have a LOT more room for hooks and tools, but for now, I'm so happy the stuff is off my TABLE!!
The frame was reused, the pegboard was $2.50 (approx. 3' x 4')
and the hooks cost me about $12.
You may have also noticed a HUGE project I am undertaking on my ceiling.
(see first photo at the top)
I am wallpapering my ceiling with book pages!
I have loved this idea and thought this would be the perfect place to try it.
So far I've used one paperback, and I just bought 3 more from the thrift store. A total of $4 for my "fifth wall" treatment.
Hoping to have it done by the end of the week!
I had the opportunity today to help a friend restyle their great room area.
I will post before and after pictures on that project in the near future as well. We had so much fun!
Have a great Tuesday!
See you tomorrow for Transformations and Treasures!
