Craft Cupboard...

First of all, please excuse the lack of posts. Today I am officially 36 weeks / 9 months pregnant. I have also officially organised and re organised anything you can think of. The nesting instinct certainly hit me bad.

Here's the latest project I was working on....


I'm lucky enough to have some built in hidden storage in the living room. Well, hidden storage is a bit of a glamorized version. It's actually an electrical cupboard. :)



I have soooo much junk and I wanted them to be all grouped together and easy to find. A small book shelf, some nails, a hammer and a lot of thinking later, here's the result and how I ended up organising everything. I still had to have access to the electrical cupboard so the only thing I have to move out of the way is the sewing machine.




Here's a closer look...



I'm so proud, I think every girl should have at least a craft box, and if you are a little obsessive like me, a cupboard. Although I do wish I had a craft ROOM which would double up as a make up / dressing room! Ahhhhhhhhh.... :)

Feeling crafty?

Here's a quick DIY tip.

Don't throw away your empty jars, yes really. Instead, clean them off and cover the lids with pretty paper, I used some from Paperchase. You can use them to store whatever you want and they look super cute!

Such a lovely craft cupboard! I wish I had enough space for something like that but I'm in temporary University accommodation so everything I have for my jewellery making is just stuffed in a box!

Such a great idea puttting paper on the ja lid. I have glas solive jars which I like to store my body scrubs in but the company's logo is on the lid not making it attractive. But with this idea, I love it!
