craft room makeover part 2

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.craft room 031

Then I purchased this peg board and painted it this cheery green.craft room 037

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.

I turned it upside down to unscrew the folding leaf.

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 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.
