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 https://www.etsy.com/shop/JolieSamuel

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!

Globe-Combo

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.

Globe-Packaging-1

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

Globe-Peeling-complete

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

Painting-Prep

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

Painted-Globe

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

Globe-Combo

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!
