I'm still finishing up my new craft room, but I'm already enjoying it. It's the most "me" room in the entire house - my own little retreat. I needed a bit more storage for some little things I use by the sewing machine, and I found these adorable tin pails at Target - $1.00! I also found this "HOME" wooden accent at - wait for it - Big Lots! They have a whole Americana line of decorative items. I need to go back and revisit them.
Anyway, back to the tin pails. I bought some red acrylic paint and stencils and put the words I needed on the pails. The acrylic actually works pretty well on the metal.
Hey, that word on the pail is "button". (I don't know what you were thinking.) I had to wait a long time for the paint to dry on each letter, but I loved the effect. Also, I had to make sure to tape the stencil on the pail before stenciling because of the curve.
I haven't figured out what to do with all of them yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something. I have just a few more things to take care of in this craft room. My next big project will be taking an armoire and turning it into a scrapbook station. Then I need to find someone that can hang the TV on the wall. Then I'll be done with my new craft room.
I can't wait to show it!
