So, I finally accepted this and started to add some organizational elements to the corner near the desk, ,but since this is our living room, it has to at least be cute!
What do you think?
Thank you to Goodwill, Michaels with coupons and spray paint. They were the major players in keeping this affordable.
I am finding this is a good place to organize some of the stuff that takes up bins and can then organize other stuff that is awkwardly shaped into the now empty bins.
Here is the first find, I bought this shelf at Goodwill for $5.99, already white. But here is the best part, on the back there is a sticker that says “Pottery Barn”… you know it wasn’t $6 at Pottery Barn, score!
On the left is a drawer organizer I bought at Goodwill for $2.99 that was wood, just a coat of spray paint later, it matches everything else. The Washi Tape Organization from 3 min egg wall hangers that I found at Goodwill for $1.99 I did a tutorial on that you can find HERE.
The frame is a laser cut wood frame that I found at Michaels for $7.99 but then used a 40% off coupon on to make it cheaper. More on that simple transition to the photo holder at the end.
Last is the little wooden shelf at the bottom that I also picked up at Goodwill for $1.99 and spray painted white. Woo to the hoo for spray paint!
It started out empty …
And got filled up! I think I am going to sew some sort of simple organizer for the rod on the bottom of the Pottery Barn shelf, still thinking on that one.
Back to that frame, I just cut some wire to fit the width and hot glued each end to the back of the frame after I spray painted it white.
Then I used two large command strips to hold it on the wall and added some mini clothespins, simple!!
How do you organize your craft area?
