More From My Craft Room/Guest Room/Den Makeover


I am still busy purging, organizing and re-doing my den/guest room into a triple purpose room.  It is now becoming a craft room as well.  This rustic wooden shelf was used for a while in my shop for display.  I decided to paint it with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in French Linen and faux distress it with the Plaid Layering Block. I have shared previous projects with the Plaid Layering Block herehere, and here.  I am planning to do a training video very soon on the Plaid Layering Block and share it on my blog.
