A few weeks back I decided to makeover this old dresser and use it as a place to store my crafts. I’ve always loved working on craft projects but I think the fact that I never had a dedicated or organised space to keep my supplies often held me back. But now have a beautiful dresser with all my supplies displayed neatly and no excuse not to get crafting! Here are a few photos of the dresser…
I decided to go for a white but “shabby chic” look, which I achieved by sanding the dresser, applying two coats off matt white paint, then giving it another light sanding around the corners and edges. I love the finished look! It’s been so handy for organising my crafts as well as giving me some working space on the tabletop. I did hope that my sewing machine would conveniently fit on top of the tabletop but unfortunately it’s a couple of inches too tall… Still, there’s plenty of room to use it and I can store it away in the cupboards below.
I saw this idea which I had to try for myself – using wooden pegs to organise embroidery threads. Before, I had a bag full of knotted string which was no use to me at all, so this was a really handy solution! Plus, it looks pretty :-)
Those of you who like to craft, how do you keep your supplies organised?
