Jewelry Storage and Organization Idea

By | Craftroom Storage, Room Decor | No Comments

Hi Everyone,

Hope you all are having a wonderful week! I’ve been working away on some big and little projects I have lined up for the upcoming weeks! But first I wanted to share a quick little organization piece I made the other day.

Firstly, I have several configuration boxes that are in need of a purpose. You may recall I have done a Christmas themed one and a washi tape organizer with another one. This round I decided to take one of your suggestions and make a jewelry organizer/display!

I used my go-to spray paint in heirloom white. I also grabbed some handpainted paper (check it out in the boxes that aren’t woodgrain). The tone on tone look is so sophisticated! Lastly, I tied gold thread to each box – I chose string instead of hooks to maximize the amount this beauty can hold.

Here’s the finished piece. How gorgeous is this?! Now, since this was a follower’s suggestion – it’s up for sale. I am so excited to be able to ship this off to one of you to enjoy! If interested, check out my Etsy shop at

Have an awesome day friends and thanks for stopping by!

Washi Tape Craftroom Storage Idea

By | Craftroom Storage, Room Decor | No Comments

Hi Friends!

As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I recently changed up my entire office space. I gave it a fresh coat of paint, some new fabrics and drapes & changed out containers to better suite the space. Throughout the process, I’ve been trying to find unique pieces to create storage. I’m a huge fan of thrift store finds and was on the lookout for some pieces for my space or future projects!

I found two items on 2 different occasions.

First, I found an old ornate looking shelf. \\click here to read that post\\


A few months later, I found a box that looked alot like a letter type box or a configuration box. I’m not entirely sure what its intended purpose was.


I designed a Christmas configuration box a while ago and thought maybe this piece could function in a similar way. \\Click here to view the configuration box I made for Christmas.\\

As I was reorganizing this week, I figured it was time to get this piece painted. I grabbed a can of my all time favorite spray paint by American Accents and gave the piece a couple coats of spray paint. Immediately I thought of a FANTASTIC purpose for the piece. “I wonder if this would fit a roll of tape,” I thought.


Guess what? It totally does! These tapes used to take up 3 jars in my space. How crazy is that?!


Oh, my crafty heart!


I decided to pair the piece up with my other shelf.

I can’t believe how fantastic these two pieces turned out! Seriously friends, if you haven’t checked out your local thrift store for some awesome storage finds…you should! Keep in mind that a fresh coat of paint can change an entire piece!

DIY ‘Anthropologie’ Globe

By | Room Decor | 5 Comments

Hi friends!

Check out this amazing DIY!


Anthropologie sells some seriously gorgeous hand-painted globes. Although absolutely stunning, they came with a pretty steep price tag. I’m sure the quality was top notch as most Anthropologie items are, however, being the DIYer that I am I wanted to create my own.

Here’s what I did.


I purchased a little globe (I have a little shelf I wanted to display this on). This one doubles as a pencil sharpener.


I did a little inspection on how the globe was created and found the paper could easily be removed.


I separated the pieces and gave them a couple coats of my favorite spray paints.


Ahhh, now we’re in business! Now to decorate.


Here’s the finished piece next to the piece Anthropologie made. I used my silhouette to create a sentiment and some of my favorite floral stamps for some foliage.

Helpful Hint: If you want to achieve crisp lettering use die-cuts or a gold paint pen with a steady hand!
