I've been working hard getting my sewing studio exactly the way I want. Not only aesthetically but functionally as well. You already saw how I took a rusty old rack and turned it into fabric storage. Well, with the new (to me) table I scored this past weekend I was also in need of some more sewing supplies storage.
Here is what I picked up at a thrift store for the absolutely ridiculous price of 10 cents. Yes, I'm serious. Like $0.10 US. You can't even buy a piece of candy for that amount these days! Isn't it cute? This little basket has the potential to be so many things just as it is. But I wanted to give it a little splash of me!
All it took was a little wiping down with a damp cloth to get rid of the dirt and dusties. Then let it air dry a few minutes.
I did the same thing to a little wooden tool box my mom picked up for me a while ago. It was a dark green before and I think she paid $1.00 for that one. I painted it a glossy red a few months ago (used same spray can as this). It holds all my rulers right where I need them. Note: This is another studio progress sneak peek just for you! It's coming along so nicely. I'm almost done.
I'm happy with my cheap vintage finds and they add so much character and color to my creative space. Hope you find some inspiration in this post to help you do something similar where you may need it.
