Up-cycled pots and crafty storage.



Over the last few days I have been making an attempt to tidy my craft room, declutter and re-organise. IF I am ever going to get back into crafting I need to be able to actually move in my little room! My room was always going to be a thrown together, mish mash of storage. Certainly not like the dreamy, designer craft rooms you see in the mags or online. To see a little bit of carpet would be nice....but instead I chose to use my precious time sorting, colour co-ordinating buttons into glass jars! Hmmm

My Doctor has told me to make more "me time!" SO under Doctors orders I have come home from work and instead of doing some washing up or hoovering...I have finished decorating the knitting needle pot I decoupatched last year.

I used pages from a very old, discoloured book, ripped them up and stuck with a watered down mixture of PVA. Today I attack it with lace, ribbon and flowers!



I hope to "style" more storage and pots in this way to give some "uniformity" to my mish mash room!

Hope to see you again soon, with my next installment!
