Here is my Friday Favorites project, and I have been working on it all week. I am doubly indebted to Karen at the Graphics Fairy this week, for the idea, as well as for the Hand Writing ephemera that I used for the front of the drawers in my "Shoe Organizer to File Drawers Project." She had a guest post on her DIY blog from Shabby Creek Cottage, which was amazing. I ran with the idea, tweaking it a bit for my use. So I would like to thank both of these amazingly talented women!!
I had this 15 section shoe sorter that I had filled with bread pans from the dollar store, but knew it was wasting a lot of space. I decided to go ahead and make my own boxes, after all I did it many times when I was shipping off ebay items, and know how. You can see the tools above that I needed to make these boxes based on the inside measurements of one of the cubbies.
After making the boxes I decoupaged the hand written poem I had gotten off of Graphics Fairy to cover the front, then I attached the Tim Holtz label handles I had gotten at Hobby Lobby and which I had spray painted black, so they would all match. (They come in a set of 6 with three different finishes.) This was a time consuming project, but definitely worth it for me. I plan to use the same method, with some larger handles to organize some other cubbies I am using, also in my craft room.
Thanks for coming along and watching my craft room evolve. Its been a lot of work, but a lot of fun too. I have already been rewarded with being able to do projects that I have had in mind for months, because now I know where the supplies I need are located. Its an empowering feeling!!
