a creative space/studio for me. (And I love it.) I've slowly been turning it into useful space, by making small, affordable changes here and there, such as purchasing an old wooden cupboard that houses all of my paints, tools, fabric and other creative items. I also had my brother make me a desk, and that's been my favorite thing to date. Until today.
wrapping station because did you know how much these babies cost if you actually buy them?! They are crazy expensive. My goal was to use materials I already had, and purchase the least amount of items to make this wall come together. (I spent about $20.00)
added bead board to our kitchen cupboards, there were a few odd sized chunks in my garage and one of them was the perfect size for this little project. I painted Sherwin Williams "Fawn Brindle" all over the bead board. It's a soft grey-brown color that's both clean and neutral. (If you don't happen to have a leftover piece of bead board hanging about your garage, you could also use a 1/4" plywood slab for this. About $7.00 at Lowes.)
fitting things into place, like a puzzle. (I love liquid nails. The dowels were a Lowe's purchase, and cost about $1.50 each. The brackets holding them were sold in a two pack for about $3.00 at Lowe's.)
I already had these adorable little buckets that hold my pencils and things, from a Pottery Barn splurge a few years ago. We previously used them for homeschooling. The hooks that hold them came from Ikea.
so relaxing about having a place for everything, after juggling chaos and awkward items that don't seem to fit into drawers and cupboards.
Doesn't organization feel good? It makes me feel like going through all the closets and tackling those next!
What have you organized lately?
