So, I didn't really change much of it. I had gotten to where I would spread my projects out on the dining room table anyhow, so the next logical step was to just move all my stuff closer in as an aesthetically pleasing way possible. And, I am still not 100% on the arrangement, but it will do for now.
We looked and looked for one piece to do it all, but couldn't really find something that I loved that wasn't extremely out of our price range. The Mr found the shabby hutch top at our neighbor Spring Hill Antique Mall. And, we paired it with a dresser that had been in storage for awhile due to a wonky drawer. I toyed with the idea of painting it, but right now, I am kind of loving the mixy matchy look.
A bonus is the hutch covers up the thermostat... well, considering this is the wall of eyesores, it hides quite a few. The Mr. cut a hole in the back and we can easily adjust the temp by opening one of the doors. The drawers here are where I can store quite a bit of my fabric and then I also use a portion of the bachelor's chest to store some there too.
The hutch holds my sewing machine and paints and glues and glitters great, but I needed something to hold my threads and other smaller things that needed to be organized. I tried using a set of old post boxes, but the little monster would shut them and I would have to unlock them from the back...not very practical for someone with a rotten 4 year old *wink* So, when I saw all these glorious drawers that was posted on a local stores Facebook page (Carter's Creek Station) I went over immediately and snatched it!
I am in the process of winding threads around bobbins, but for now, they are at least separated by hue.
Stamps fit in too along with my washi tape and all the other small stuff that would just fall out every time I would open one of the cabinet doors.
I think I may rearrange the prints and frames a bit once I get everything framed, but I would like this to be a really fun gallery space.
Okay, the Mr just brought home a movie I have been really wanting to see!
bye for now~
