“Upcycled Craft Storage”

Hello, my blog friends,

I hope you are all staying at home as much as possible, and staying safe from the Corona Virus.  I know it is hard when you are still working. In Victoria, Australia, where I live, our social Distancing has become a lot tougher. I am still working as I am a Disability PCA and I am only going where needed. We have stepped up our protocols to keep us and our clients safe 🙂

 

unit 1

Anyway………………. In my crafty life, I found two shelf units and they were a little rough around the edges.  A bargain for $20 I thought!!! They are 1.6 metres tall, about a metre wide and 15 cm deep shelves.  The shelves are on a slight angle so things will not fall off them.

unit 2

This is the first one I Up-Cycled. I had thought about painting them all Blk but the cost of the paint was a tad high. I have now painted the trimmings with two coats of acrylic and it looks great. I then went through the 12×12 pattern paper that I hadn’t cut up for scrapping and just measured the shelves and cut the paper to size in different vintage hues.

 

This is the second one I worked on and I used Shabby Vintage colours. I think they look quite pretty. As this stage, this one is not going on a wall. I collaged the back of it after painting a black border around it.

They are now looking quite nice and usable. They have shorter, not as deep shelving and they are going to be great to store my scrapbook supplies and see what I have.

Now to sort out my supplies and get using them and crafting while I have a bit of spare time up my sleeve……………….. I would love to hear about anything you have repurposed for your craft supplies!

Stay well and safe!
