Hat Boxes and More

Good afternoon my friends.
How is your day going?
Mine has been busy as my last week.
Love the 4th of July
am definitely glad it's over.
We spent the day at the ocean....

As you can see it was quite windy
and the waves were rolling in
the kids had a blast
the fireworks were awesome.
There simply is nothing
like watching fireworks over the ocean waves.

Since it has been so hectic around here
thought I would share
a little more
office storage I have done.

Hat boxes....
There are all kinds of things out there
that can be used to
prettify and make into beautiful
office/craft room storage.

I picked these up at thrift stores for
$1.00 each.
Then I decorated them with
bits and pieces found in my craft room.

First, I painted them with
DIY white chalk paint
(my go to paint for everything).
I used brown craft paper, raffia, burlap
lace, flowers and buttons
to embellish them.
You can use whatever you have on hand....
ribbon, rope, markers, stickers...
anything will work...
They are so simple to do and
so pretty when you are done.
the storage is unreal....
These hold my home decor trims
all my sewing trims
bits and pieces of lace.
That's a lot of stuff in there....

I love the way they look in my new craft room
so vintage....

Now I am going to leave you with

My next project....
Gonna keep you guessing on this one....

Have a great day
get out there and create something....
