Like many crafters, I started out on my kitchen table. For scrapbooking, I had a Rubbermaid open tote and a shirt sized gift box of “stuff”. The sewing machine, sewing box, and a few other baskets and boxes for other crafts were stuck in closets here and there. I was so unorganized!
The room that started out as a home office, but evolved into a junk/storage room, became my crafty space. For the last few years it was an okay space but wasn't very pretty or inspiring. Last month, we started a redo of my craft room. It has new paint, carpet and a new window valance. I’m still working on a few storage and decorative things and will share all when complete. Until then, this is my switch plate cover.
It's wooden; painted with antique white Krylon spray paint follwed by Krylon matte sealer. I dipped blue yarn into Modge Podge and shaped into flourishes. The yarn dried hard and fast but a bit darker. The flowers are from an ancient arrangement that I'm slowly deconstructing. I must have had that one for at least 25 years but the colors worked for this room.
