Before/After ~ Craft Room Projects
Oh...I can't wait to show you what I have been doing this past week!
Last Saturday was just a perfect day to go out and spray paint. I decided to spray some frames that I needed for pictures in my room...you know I gotta coordinate everything! lol...then I also sprayed my quite large Cork/memo/message board for my wall. I also used a wonderful slip cover that I had made a long time ago and put it over the back of my rolling chair and then stapled the same fabric to the seat area. I just LOVE this fabric full of stripes and posies!!! Then on top of it all...my sweetie finally showed me after all these years, how to use his drill. I drilled some hole in a really neat shelf that I am using for my ribbon, sorry tho, no before picture of this...cause it was already painted pink. Hope you enjoy what I have done!
BUT, before I forget...I also wanted to show you a picture of my room with my drafting/cutting table set up in the center. I am now officially creating in my NEWLY painting/organized/Craft ROOM...Yay!!!!
Before these were painted they all were differing colors...now they are a pretty creamy Heirloom white...like my furniture that I have painted.
I just love this sweet picture. It was made for me by my daughter when she was in 2nd grade...a mother days gift. I HAD to frame it and keep it close to me!
Before/After shot of my Message Board
I just can't get over how COOL this looks..I also put cup hooks on the lower part so that I could hang more ribbon...the sides tapered down so I couldn't drill holes...but I found a way!
Oh yes...I forgot yet again to get a before picture of this plate rack. It was gold and I decided to paint it pink so I could hang some pretty plates in my room. I AM Sick for pretty floral plates especially if they have hand painted roses on them..well anything w/roses doesn't get to far past me...lol.
This last picture is of a Rock I purchased from a guy who engraves just about anything you'd like into the rock. It represents who I feel deep down inside I am. I think if I could not create or do something with my hands...I would shrivel up and die. Creating beauty is what I believe GOD created me to do. I will do it as long as he allows me to. I am so blessed to have a hubby who supports me in this and has allowed me to CREATE this wonderful space just for my creating. I am TRULY Blessed.
Blessings to all...Lorena
