I thought I would share the generosity from a few family members regarding the “now in use” craft room! Everyone has been so generous providing me with a few new items for the craft room.
First, when Dillon and I were out grocery shopping, we had to stop at the Canadian Tire store to pick up a few things. Dillon surprised me by buying a 4 ft. folding table that I can use in the craft room so I have a big surface when base painting or to use as a cutting table when I am sewing. It is great because it folds flat, meaning I can stash it behind the futon or the door when I am not using it, and it has a handle for if I want to carry it outside in the summer to use for any number or projects! Right now it is covered with the base painting for 4 of the 8 or 9 projects I have on the go lol!
Next is a paint bottle rack that my mother-in-law (who is also a huge crafter), that she made herself but didn’t end up needing! It is a wooden rack that hangs on the wall…. which means almost all of the paint bottles that were on the change table I redid are gone!!! While not all of them fit in the rack, I managed to get 84 bottles into the rack!!!!
How cool is that? AND, I was given gift cards for Michael’s stores on my birthday and Christmas. Because I don’t have a Michael’s store closer than an hour’s drive, Kim offered to go pick up the things I wanted for the craft room.
Ever since I saw one on Pinterest, I wanted one of those cute rolling racks for rolled storage. Kim picked that up for me and some cute boxes for even more storage.
I put the two flowered boxes she picked up on the change table where the paint was and the other two (that she offered to return because he hubby picked them lol) I just put on the electric fireplace because the sort of blended in!
