I actually did this project back in October but with how busy we were and then the holidays and then our trip, I completely forgot to post it.
I had been looking for a cabinet of some sorts to give a home to some of my craft supplies and came across this one at the Restore in Newberg for 5 bucks. As you can see, it needs some serious love and attention. It was quite frightening actually. I’m still unsure of what that purplish goo was that was on the bottom half.
I saw the potential from the minute I laid eyes on it though and well, it was $5 and brought it home to add my special touches. After two coats of primer and a coat of whatever white paint I had left over from another project, I threw on some new hardware and this is what I got!
Originally I had it in our guest bedroom but that is now my David’s office so I moved it into my office. And it is home to my sewing machine and a few extra things. I think eventually I’m going to take the scallop detail off of the bottom because I’m not too hot on it but was too lazy to take it off before
Having tons of old glass jars I put various loose craft supplies in them such as buttons and sewing measuring tape.
Then I got a bunch of plastic desk organizers for other items like ribbon and thread.
And found a home for all my small paints, paint brushes, stencils, glue, glue gun, etc.
And the bottom drawer is reserved for fabric but that is already on the full side so I’m thinking of plan B.
I am quite happy having added this guy to my home, more so for the organization than anything.
Hope you all had a lovely weekend!
