My craft room was in serious need of some organizing. So as promised on my last post here it is.
Ok I’ll admit, it doesn’t look all that bad. But I really needed to see what I had. There were a lot of things I hadn’t used in years and needed to go, to make room for new crafty things I plan to make.
First I emptied the room and threw out 2 large bags of garbage.
To make it look good first, it has to look bad Right?
That sewing machine table is very useful. but….. needs something.
I emptied all the shelves and removed the shelf above the sewing machine, to make room for the peg board.
Then I purchased this peg board and painted it this cheery green.
I had a lot of fun putting everything back. I purchased these containers at my favorite dollar store, and organized the other ones I already had, so it looks more appealing to the eye.
Of course , before that there was the sewing machine table make over.
I’ll show you how I did that.
The sewing table before
I turned it upside down to unscrew the folding leaf.
Then I sanded it lightly using 150 grit sand paper, to remove wax build up and dirt. Then I wiped it well with a moist cloth
I used this primer because I already had it, and it works really well. But any good primer will do.
Let that dry well. Then paint it using a roller and paint brush.
I found some wood knobs to match and glued and screwed them in place.
to retrofit the table to fit my new machine. I cut a piece of plywood and painted that too. I use that to cover the gap and put the sewing machine on top. I can still place the new sewing machine in here when not in use.
Here is the finished craft room.
As always one project leads to another. That led me to…guess what?by
