Welcome To The 28th Masterpiece Monday



Hi, How's your weekend going so far? I've been busy puttering 
around the house, especially in my new craft room/office.  
I'm still in the deciding where everything goes phase. 


 Here is another piece of my new room to share with you today. This is a curb found dresser from a few years ago which I painted white and used in the living room. Then I moved it to the garage for awhile and now I'm really liking it in this room.
 I thought I would dress it up and make it organized at the same time. I've been holding onto these chalkboard stickers from the dollar store forever, just waiting for the right time. I like the design on them and the fact that they peel right off and don't damage anything, not that it would ever stop me from using them, but still.
 I really like erasable labels!


I think Huggy Bear is in love with them......

 Ever since I started to clear out and build a garden on the side
of the house, I've been eye balling this little vintage, curb
found, child safety fence.It was re-purposed to hold up some
vines along the outside of the house. I love how wonderfully
 weathered it has become and brought it inside.
It's the perfect topper for the dresser and will be very versatile and functional.


 I found a huge plastic sewing box at the swapmeet a long time ago and inside the box 
was spool after glorious spool of vintage thread, along with some other sewing notions.
 And now I can display them. I still have tons of them in the box too!

 The table runner is from a yard sale and has 
been sitting in my stash for a long time.

 The vintage hangers I've owned since childhood.
 I hung one of my Audubon bird pictures. This one echoes the
Summery, beachy look of my makeshift curtains.
Next time, I'll show my new work table!

I LOVE the addition of the chalkboard stickers to your dresser. They are perfect for your craft room/office. Everything you added to the dresser "composition" adds such personality.

I love those chalkboard stickers!! They're from the dollar store? I need to get some. What a great idea to add those pretty spools to the clear jar. Very clever ideas with the hangers.

Wow, your sure have a great useful stash. All these things you are using are perfect for the project. I got to agree with Huggy Bear, the labels look terrific on the white chest. I'm loving the rack on top for hanging things and the threads in the jar, simply art.........
