Craft Room Shelves – Part 2

Last week I went from this:
 and this:
to this:

This week I’m going to show you how I added craft supplies to the shelves so they would serve a purpose and function in my craft room while adding some decorative appeal.

I placed them on either side of the door that leads into the guest bathroom. Perfect fit.

I started by deciding what needed to be stashed in a different place. First, it was the glitter. On the craft table, it’s just too tempting for littles. My glitter “collection” fits perfectly on the shelf. 

I also wanted some closed storage so I decorated a couple jam jars with ribbon and craft paper (attached with a hot glue gun) and now I have closed storage. I put decorative paper rolls in one, some antique sewing supplies in another, and little chipboard animals in the last one.
I also needed a place for stamps and stamp pads – I put the stamp pads on the shelf and some additional stamp pads and stamps in the drawer. 
My favorite part of the little display? The antique ivory wool jacket and children’s hangers. All three are my mom’s garage sale finds (thanks, mom!) from years ago – aren’t they sweet?
I don’t know if you can tell, but the guest bathroom is a soft butter yellow color – I love how the little ivory jacket connects the two rooms together.

I re-did these two shelves for the cost of two cans of spray paint – everything else was stuff that I already had – it totally “paid” to look a little harder in my basement.
I’m linking this up to some fun parties this week!
