More From My Craft Room/Guest Room/Den Makeover

October 04, 2016

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.

The upcycled shelf is now the home of some of my blog props, greenery, spools, twine, etc.  

Grater Photo Display
I am also displaying some of my past blog projects, like this grater easel photo holder.

One of my sewing drawers with books, jars, and more greenery on the next shelf.  Do you remember the white chair back photo holder?  The tutorial is here.

I think old mailbox doors are great photo frames.

I took this old rustic frame I have used in wall displays many times and added a rectangle of bead board paneling.  

I painted the non-grooved side with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White.

I then printed out my logo on legal sized paper and did an image transfer using matte Mod Podge.   There are many tutorials for this technique on Pinterest.

So here are my updated hanging shelf, and my new logo sign.  The shelves are a perfect place to "organize clutter"!

More from my room update to come!
Thanks for reading my blog, Carlene
