Oh boy, I feel like I'm the host of one of HGTV's makeover shows! Lights, camera, action...it's time for my 'crafty' closet reveal! (drumroll....)
|(for a little closet)|
Whoooo loves the finished bookcase? (sorry, that was a terrible pun). But I couldn't resist this white owl vase at Michael's, on sale for $5, the perfect container for my scissors and a cheerful reminder of my new backyard resident. Walmart's little plastic bins hold my measuring tapes, buttons and ribbons, and I also picked up enough magazine holders to house my collection of HGTV, Victoria, Where Women Create and Artful Blogging. (Lest you think this is ALL of my magazine collection, I rush to assure you that the remainder of my beloved Victoria magazines are in my library.)
I now finally have a safe place to put my cross stitch frame when it's not in use. I love using it and it makes cross stitching easier on my hands since I don't have to hold a hoop anymore. It also holds the pattern at a perfect height and distance and has a magnetic strip to keep my needles and embroidery scissors close at hand. But when I'm finished for the night it doesn't look very artistic perched on top of the piano! I already had the lamp and used a plain white frame to show off a little more of the colorful Chicago paper.
And it simply wouldn't be a reflection of who I am if I didn't have a reminder of my parents displayed. The pink card is my first Valentine card from my dad.. I came across it recently and thought it would look perfect on my bookcase, as he is never far from my thoughts.
And here's the final picture for today. I had planned on showing off the whole closet, but I had more pictures than I realized! Here is how the right side of the closet turned out:
