Creating {Simple} storage....

If your home is anything like mine....you don't have a space to call your own. You know, a place where you can drag out all of your crafty goodness and be creative.
Our kids {as cute as they may be} have taken over every inch of our house. What's a mom to do?

Well...being the resourceful girl that I am, I made a corner...that's right, a corner in our bedroom that is all mine.
mine, mine, mine, mine....

{I was tempted to lick it just so everyone knows it's all MINE...hehehe, but I didn't}

So, I now have this corner and I love it. It's the little things that make me happy, but I needed something useful and pretty to look at while I am in my happy place.

Ta Da....


I'm in love with all of this pretty storage!


I also REALLY love the price tag of this wall....

1. Two shelves {score $1 at a thrift store!}
2. I painted them a dark brown as a primer
3. Next was a top coat of an "oatmeal" color, then I distressed them to perfect imperfection ;)
4. My favorite part, screw lids from baby food jars to the underside of each shelf {note, I later went back and added a second screw so they wouldn't spin when I attached the jar}
5. Large 11x14 frame {50 cents thrift store find!}
6. Primed dark brown, painted {by my beautiful assistant} "oatmeal"
7. Distressed frame

I now have a beautiful space to organize my supplies, and a pretty place to hang some of my finished pieces!





I am feeling more creative already........

  4. I'm so happy for you and your corner of creativity. I love the baby food jar idea (definitely copying that one) and good to know about the second screw.

  5. This is great, I love the jars screwed to the shelves. YOu know they are not going to disappear this way. My house is the same, even if I find a spot it soon turns into their space.
