The AFTER!! I could take it no more. I gave myself a $100 budget and went to town. I hit the Home Fabric store and spent over half my budget on these saaaweeet fabrics!! The yellow fabric was my fav, but they only had 3-2yard remnant pieces, so I bought a coordinating remnant and used it on the bottom to make the length :)
The AFTER!! Oh joy!! I have one speed when I set my mind to something. Get. It. Done. My daughter had my sewing machine, so enter- Stitch Witchery!! I was NOT going to wait!! I made these panels shorter because of the desk, and it also saved on fabric! I will have to stitch them with the sewing machine eventually, this AZ sun kills whatever it touches:( but for now? Beaut!
The AFTER!! I (sadly) packed up dollhouse world and safely stored her away. I had that cute little table out in the garage so I brought it up. The hubby made the shelves :) I shopped my house to find baskets to use as storage. Those really cool stick chairs? My mom's brother made them about 50 yrs. ago. Lucky me:)
This sweet desk I found at the Salvation Army "boutique" in San Juan Capistrano. I prettied her up with some white paint and hardware that I already had laying around waiting for that perfect piece :)
This box has been the hubbs worst nightmare. When we moved from the beast over 3 yrs. ago I had to empty my wrapping center and those rolls of wrap were so tall so I couldn't close the box. Weeeell, that awkward box found itself ALWAYS getting in my hubby's way. The threat of the trash was all that poor box ever heard :(
Enter- granny cart! My wrapping paper is happy, and the hubby is happier :)
I used the same baskets that I once used for veggies in my fridge to store fabric and a bunch of stationery that is finally going to be put to use after living in storage for so long!
This metal ribbon holder is actually a vintage shoe rack :) upon closer examination of this pic, I saw the hideousness that is Kirkland!! A quick cut out of some beaut scrapbook paper and double stick tape...
And aaaah! Sooo much better! I covered that bulletin board with a pink polka dot wrapping paper that I had.
And of course whilst (I love that word!) walking thru Tarjay to get my curtain rods, I saw this sweet lamp! I. Had. To!! Hot glued on a bow, and added a vintage brooch :)
So there you have it! My sweet little craft room. All it took was $100, a weekend, and showing my house to a blog follower :) Thanks for the push Barb!!
