This little CD storage unit repurpose project was Sent over to me from Rebecca of This Present Life. It is a great re-purpose/ recycle project. And it is a craft room organizing idea, what more could you want? Here is what she said:
Here's a sneak peek of the before…
Since my dining room is also my craft room, I've been trying to think of ways to organize my crafts so they can be put away when we need the room to function as a dining room. However, I also want to be inspired in this room at the same time.
I picked up this little jewel at a thrift store the other day for about $3. You may even have one laying around your house. It's a wooden CD rack that has been painted black. You may be asking yourself, “how in the world are you going to use that in a craft room?”. Just wait, I promise you're going to be blown away!
First, I painted it this fun apple green color (which is also the color I painted our bedroom since I'm also doing a makeover in there…stay tuned for that before and after!). I did prime it first since it was black and I had to paint 2 coats of the green.
The bird paper wasn't big enough to cover the entire side, but instead of trying to match another piece up to the first, I decided to use this coordinating striped paper. I really love the look of it and I think it adds such a fun detail, I'm glad the bird paper wasn't big enough!
Still wondering how I used this (now cute) CD rack? Check it out…
I just love to look at all of these beautiful fabrics and it really is inspirational! It's so nice to SEE all of my beautiful fabrics rather than have them folded up in a drawer or cabinet. It will also be useful for hanging fabrics that I'm currently using on a project.
