My sweet husband came home with a craft table for me Friday night! So far my craftiness has either been on the floor or at the glass top kitchen table. But not only did he bring me a table, he allowed me to rearrange his office (with his help, of course) so that I could have a little area to set up and work at! I’m so excited! Now to start fixing it up… I know I’m going to put shelves up, and I want a thread rack… any suggestions that you have found handy for your craft area? I would love to hear about them!
I am so excited to have Beckie here from Infarrantly Creative today! She is absolutely fantastic and I just know you are going to LOVE her stuff! So let’s get to it…Take it away, Beckie!
My name is Beckie Farrant, author of Infarrantly Creative and Roadkill Rescue Hero! A what??? A Roadkill Rescue Hero? Yep, I pride myself in finding curbside castaways and revamping them into usable and beautiful decor.
Take this old hutch for example…
I flipped it upside down, added some dowel rods and a little molding and created a Pottery Barn inspired book rack for my baby girl’s room.
I found this 80’s parquet China cabinet that needed a new lease on life. It had chunks of wood missing on the sides and was destined for the dump.
So I thought outside the box and used paint sticks to cover the blemishes. Once painted you would never know the difference. Then I added some bead board wallpaper to cover up the parquet doors, a little fabric, new knobs and a few coats of black paint and she is fabulous!
I found a vintage TV cabinet left for dead on the side of the road. After removing the TV and making a few adjustments it is gorgeous as a console table in my entryway.
I have recently begun a love relationship with reupholstering. I took two vintage wingback chairs and turned them into show stopping pieces for my family room.
