When we moved into our home 4 years ago, we discovered we were a little squished. Our living area was much smaller than our previous house in the 'burbs. I've had to be a little creative when finding space for all of our things. One of my problem areas is our home office/craft room. It was a small bedroom for the previous homeowners but it really isn't much bigger than a large closet. It does have nice windows which allow in plenty of light during the day. My first task was to rip off the mirrored closet doors. The next task was to paint the ugly paneling. For 2 years the room sat unfinished. Finally, I started to add some finishing touches.
I added a small shelf I found many years ago. I think it is the interior of a roll-top desk. I painted it with the leftover wall paint which is an antique white in a satin finish. I added 3 clear plastic paint cans I found at Michael's. The paint cans hold antique thread spools that I inherited from my hubby's grandma. Some of the spools are from Germany and some are pure silk. Little treasures!
Next, I found a nice surprise at the Dollar Store. I found a sheet of these wall stickers. They stickers went up nicely, even on the paneled walls. They were easy to remove and re-stick to get them just right. I used my level from my tool kit to help keep the words even.
