Good Morning Happy Crafters,
Todays something different really is different, today I present....
JOHN'S BARGAIN CRAFT ROOM
I have been shopping and bargain hunting to create a craft room for weeks, every charity and second hand shop has been scoured to find exactly what I wanted. Finally everything is together in my spare room and so tomorrow (today when you are reading this) will be my first day of using the facilities!!
Firstly my desk, which I have had for ages and used as a dining table (note to self start looking for new dining table) Next to this, on the left is a bargain cupboard I got form the local cat charity shop for €5. This fits all my 12 x 12 paper with box's from Ikea on top where ribbon, flowers etc is stored. Under the desk is s set of plastic drawers donated by my mum, I think it used to contain her hairdryer / straighteners etc.
On Top of the desk are 2 sets of craft drawers that I purchased from Aldi for €9.99 each. The first set holds alcohol inks, Embossing powder, pearls and gems and brad, buttons etc. The next set is colour coordinated holding Ink pads, ribbon, flowers and embellishments in primary colours. These also hold charms and random sentiment stamps so I can just choose the right words rather search through different sets. The large drawer at the bottom has my larger ink pads, versamark, archival etc.
Finally my bargain cupboards, 2 sets of 2 cupboards bought for €50! These were from a shop that is closing down and are fantastic quality, shop fittings have to put up with a load of heavy use.
I have added some pictures of the insides of the cupboards, eagle eyed readers may spot the Die cupboard (there is a shelf of embossing folders it's not all dies!)
I know this is not the usual post I do however I've spent the last few days getting my room together so thought it would count as something different! Back tomorrow with the Sunday Mojo and something, properly, crafty!
