After all these years I’m still learning things about myself.
I’ve just recently come to the realization that I’m a visual person. Not sure why I didn’t pick up on this before, but it just dawned on me when I was hanging up my thrifted paint shelving unit in my craft room.
It’s only taken me 52 years to figure this out. I’m quick like that.
So in an attempt to get myself out of this cycle (oh I can dream can’t I?) I’m thinking up ways of organizing things while keeping them out in the open at the same time because, frankly, in this girl’s craft room what isn’t seen isn’t used.
Wreaths are one of those craft items that I’ve never really known how to store. Usually they’re the rabbits that get piled on with other wreaths or who knows what, whether they’re on a shelf or in a closet.
Every wreath I’ve used in recent years has been thrifted, and I have to buy them when I see them… if I don’t chances are I probably won’t see one when I need one. Such is life!
But then they get put away somewhere and never get used. So I asked myself… how can I get them up and out of my way, but still see them?
And myself answered… oh yes… I answer myself all the time. Myself said to me… hang them up silly.
Now goodness knows I always listen to myself.
So that’s exactly what I did. All I needed was a couple of small cat food cans, and the shower curtain rod that I rescued from the dump a while ago.
With a couple of screws, two sets of shower curtain hooks that I thrifted for $1 each, and some hemp twine from the dollar store….
and it’s all done. Nothin’ to it.
Those cat food cans are quite the decor statement don’t ya think? lol. I’ll probably be painting them so they disappear.
Other than that… I’m sooo happy with it. Now I can hang up all those odds and sods… keeping them out of my hair, but still in arm’s reach.
Thanks so much for reading!
