As I was walking around Goodwill the other day I came across this thing.
It is rough and ugly but I knew I could make it into something so I bought it. It sat on the desk for a few days before I figured out what it would become.
It became this.
It now sits right behind and to the left of my sewing desk. If I need scissors, embroidery stabilizer, or a seam ripper all I have to do is turn around and ta da, there it is.
The first thing I did was clean it with a damp rag. It wasn’t very dirty so I didn’t need a scrub brush. I did need a dowl for the stabilizer. I loaded up the dog in the truck and took her to our favorite hardware store, Home Depot. Home Depot is my favorite hardware store because it has everything. It is the dogs’ because they will let her come in.
Once home I hit the dowl and the wood rack with krylon spray paint. My favorite decor color is blue. I have a whole ocean/peace/tranquility thing going on. After it dried it was just a matter of hanging it on the wall and putting my scissors, seam ripper, and stabilizer on it.
Super easy! Super cheap! Super functional!
