As many of you already know, I am in Arizona taking care of my Bestie as she recovers from a tonsillectomy. Apparently, as an adult, the recovery time for a tonsillectomy is extremely long – like 4-6 weeks. Insanity. Poor thing. She is 3.5 weeks out and is just now feeling like herself. While I am here she had a few projects she wanted me to help with, one of which is her craft corner.
She has this amazing vintage desk that she painted teal. She has her grandmothers sewing machine from 1985 and all of her grandmothers sewing notions too. So sweet. She said, “I need a way to corral all these little things, keep it toddler proof, and be functional, ready, go.” Seriously, that is a direct quote. So, I had my marching orders – create sewing storage. I think I hit the target. Check it out.
I decided to install a shelf above the desk in order to keep her work space clear and to keep all the little and super choke-able pieces in place but still easy to access, I put them in these cute little mason jars:
At first I thought we could just paint the lid rings and then attach the lids with E6000 …. craft fail.
So we went old school and screwed those bad boys in.
Then we hung the shelf and attached the jars.
We also recovered some old coffee cans with scrap book paper to hold the scissors.
And glittered the life out of the inside of some old spaghetti sauce jars too.
Check out what a big difference these little changes make.
The BFF has a philosophy: You can never have too much storage… or glitter.
