What’s Up Wednesday has turned into Trying to Think of Something Thursday…

…and then it came to me when talking to a friend. You see, I am really a trash to treasure, or recycle/reuse, “I can make something else with this” sort of gal. I also have a high need to store all of my crafting supplies and goodies in a space efficient manner.

I’ve collected a few very useful pieces of the modular paper crafting storage pieces by Making Memories. The only thing I didn’t love about them is that they are white. My entire house has knotty pine, hardwood floors, black or brown accents, and white just really isn’t much a part of the color scheme.

Then it hit me. A can of spray paint could change everything! I used two coats of a high gloss chocolate brown and now these pieces add wonderfully to the décor of our family room (and my scrapbooking nook within it).

This isn’t exactly paper-crafting expertise, but when you have great storage and organizational pieces that create a alluring space in which you can create, you can get back to work on your favorite projects with ease!
Pin It!

Great solution to your problem Anita! ITA that having a space you enjoy to scrap in makes you do it far more often!
