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.

The birthday RAK winner will be announced sometime tomorrow, 9/13/2009!  Thanks for your participation and best of luck!  Contest rules listed in 9/5/2009 post.

Thank you for visiting Traveling Down a Crafty Road and for celebrating with me!


  1. Awesome idea! I may have to use that one in my daughter's room. We have the odd size switches so I can't buy decorative plates and I had been trying to come up with an idea. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Love your light switch! What a clever idea.

  3. Cool Idea! Way to Go! Thanks for the RAK!
