Recycle Recycle

A new home, oops mean craft room and didn't cost a fortune!
My craft room pieces at there worst! Thought I would share and tease  you with the room stripped back. My Son helped paint the walls, a greeny blue colour as seen in the piccy. The rest was all my blood and sweat put into it. Worked everyday for a week and by night time just about managed to crawl into bed but was all so worth the effort. Been such a long time since I took on such a big project but now I can sit back and enjoy and craft away to my hearts content!

Fitted wardrobes I never liked in my son's bedroom. Decided not to tear them out.
Was thinking how much stash I could hide away from prying eyes lol!
Although the left side still has household pieces in it. Won't be long before I find it all a new home.

My Mum's bureau. She would have a fit what I have done to it!
This is my Laptop's new home.

An old bookcase I started to strip back many years ago and landed in the steading loft unfinished.
Covered in cobwebs, a dust down, wash and dry was all ready to give a new lease of life.

The wardrobe came from the charity shop. 
Fitted it out with some shelves, well the joiner did and now homes all my card and papers.
Well almost!!

Well that's some of the furniture that was ready for a new make over. Hope you will come back tomorrow and  see the finished results. Will tell you, my colour sceme is Duch Egg Blue and Cream for all the furniture
using Annie Sloan Chalk paints.
Will anything be safe from them now!

bye for now

I always find a re-vamp of the craft room does wonders for the inspiration Carol, sort of revitalised the crafty juices.
