My craft space in progress
This is my space in the livingroom so its pretty limited but i guess its better than having to create in a closet,lol
Its not totally done, i m still trying to decide where everything should go and stuff, i bought the ikea desk "Mikael" used but it was in great shape so i saved lots of money on that and that i love the desk, also from ikea i got this little trolley where i keep my cuttlebug amongst other things.
It is a great litte storage item.
Like a decade ago i got some other small storage drawers from ikea but i was bored by the colour and didnt really know what to use them for but i have re decored them now and am slowly making ause for them, in the same way i re decorated them i also did some other storage units which i guess was some kind of office furniture but i got them from my local charity shop and again saved some money which is a short coming at my house.
Anyway i painted them in a soft light color, its not all white but got a capuchino edge to it, its called Provance of some reason,lol
After that i cut out lots of circles using my cuttlebug, i had some really cool napkins i wanted to use and i used the decopage technique for that but as a finishing touch i added a layer with floor varnish so i was sure it would keep for a long time without getting lots of bumps and scratses on it.
When i put on the circles to the items i used proper decopage glue and such which i bought at Panduros.
I am thrilled with the result, it looks really cool i think,
