Last October the family came for a week’s holiday and whilst here my son re-vamped my craft room but I have never gotten around to taking pics of what he did. Love him to bits as my craft room is so much nicer to work in.
My Vintage Stamping Challenges DT make is sitting on my desk but you have to look really hard to see it. Since having the room re-vamped I have been making lots of storage bits to house some of my crafting stash. Behind the shabby chic box you will see a rather long handmade box which is where I keep my hands on tools (glues, rulers, scissors etc) and on the window sill are two of my up-cycled toilet roll holders.
Moving in for a closer pic …
Now zooming in a bit more …
The theme this month is ‘Shabby Chic’ chosen by Karen and I am sure we are going to see some lovely shabby makes from everyone.
A friend of mine, Caroline, had a crafty day in September 2014 at her house where I started altering my G45 tag box but have only just finished it.
Definitely not that good at remembering dates but this was easy because whilst there we exchanged tags with each other and a lovely lady called Rose exchanged her tag with mine and she signed it for me. The craft tags came with the G45 box so I made another which matches the front of the box and used a Flonz stamp.
A few more pics of the room and you will probably be able to spot some other items I have altered or am in the process of changing. The white glass mats are from Ikea and they are fabulous. You can use paint, inks, just about any medium on them and they just wipe clean with a damp cloth, cool eh ??? Also the drawers underneath are from Ikea and they store all my wooden stamps, papers and so many other craft items.
Another MDF item I bought from Ally Crafts which now houses some of my paints.
I really hope that you can join us for this month’s challenge. To enter just click Mr Linky at the bottom of the VSC web page and maybe it could be you who wins the $20 from Flonz’s store.
This is how my craft room used to look HERE.
Please visit the DT’s blogs for more inspiration and also it would be nice to leave them some love.
Entering for: Hels Sunday Stamper – BOOKS – used gesso and book pages to cover the box.
