project art.craft space: complete!Posted: June 22, 2011
i spoke of an unveiling last week– the time has finally come! i’ve been dreaming about my own art.craft space for a while now. in fact, i’ve been brainstorming for months. well, my dreams have finally come true! i started looking for the perfect piece of furniture a few months ago. thank you craigslist for this awesome find:
it was a beautiful piece of furniture before, but i wanted to transform it into my dream space. this was my first major furniture refinishing project, and i didn’t completely know what i was doing or how it would look when i finished. with a nervous hand i sanded, painted, sanded again, and stained.
the fun part started once the refinishing was complete! i installed my mason jar chandelier, attached my favorite fabric to the back, and added pegboard, fabric-covered cork board, and mason jars for organization.
one of my favorite parts is the chalkboard. i’ve been wanting to find a use for chalkboard paint for a while now! i painted a purple frame on one of the doors and filled it with chalkboard paint. a perfect place to keep my ideas! and now i’ve got a whole can of chalkboard paint to spare. maybe i could use a chalkboard wall, too?!
i finally have a place to store my fabric. one of my favorite things to do is to raid the sale sections of fabric stores. scrap of fabric for 25 cents? don’t mind if i do!
and the organization continues. everything has a place now.
what is your dream art.craft space? how do you like mine? my favorite reaction so far: “i want to crawl in there and live in it.” me too, me too!
