First, we all know I really wanted a creative crafty space.
Nothing big. (for now)
I was inspired by this closet redo.
1) I didn't have the extra $100 right now to buy the supplies.
Then I was in Walmart and saw a four pack of those boxes in a smaller size for just $6, so I grabbed them. I used one right away for the growing pile of colored socks thrown on top of the older girls' bureau.
That's much better.
They think it's cool to wear mismatched colored socks now. They thought they made that up. Then I told them about the 80's and how I used to wear four socks every day- criss crossed the colors and slouched them all down. They think that sounds ugly. Hmph.
and I finally bought the covered cake stand I've had my eye on...
I spotted this cute little bowl on etsy and planned to buy it (along with an all scarlet one)...
which inspired the color theme for my kitchen this Spring...
(I'll be throwing in a little aqua too.)
I found a fun use for some funky scarves the ladies had lying around...
and more space
and just addressed my creative needs...
turns out I don't need much space right now anyways, lol.
So it was on to find that space.
A little space that could be my space.
It's funny what you find when you look hard enough.
And see that the bottom two shelves here...
could easily become this...
Last, but not least,
I embraced the roses John bought us...
(we girls split a dozen)
