craft wall

24 06 2011

We have been working in our basement, helping the Mr. T put on the window facing and trim. Between cutting, nailing, and painting trim,  I’ve been working on a cork board, magnet board, dry erase frame, a chicken wire frame as seen at A Very Dandoislion Life, and a peg board for my craft area in the basement.  I need a little something on the left still, but overall I think it looks good and I can’t wait to get the rest of my craft room organized so I can craft more efficiently.

$2 frame from a garage sale and 40% off cord roll from Hobby Lobby. You can see in the pic above that I made some fabric rosettes and glued them to thumbtacks.  I need to make a few more of them.

This was a frame I already had and left over sheet metal.  I painted the metal to take some of the shine off, but I don’t particularly like it. The vinyl {create} makes it better.  I love that I can cut vinyl whenever I need it with my Silhouette.  I got my vinyl from Expressions Vinyl. I love that I can get a lot of colors for a low price.  (Sorry for the cruddy pic. If you read my blog often, you know why!) I plan on making more rosettes and gluing them to magnets.

I got this frame for my MIL’s birthday party but the matte I bought didn’t fit it, so I am reusing it as a dry erase board.

This may be my favorite thing on the wall.  I got this ideas from A Very Dandoislion Life. I used a frame that used to be purple and was part of the art wall in our previous house.  It took A LOT of paint to get it orange, but I love how it turned out.  I do need to paint a few more clothes pins.

This last frame was also in my stash, as was the peg board left over from T2’s window frame project.  I bought a pack of peg board hangers and the Mr. T can use the rest in the garage.

Here’s the shot of the whole wall again.  I will post the whole area when it’s “done.”
