CRAFT ROOM OVERHAUL PART 2
I don’t know if you know this about me, but I’m about to spill the beans. I absolutely love organization and having a place for all of my crafting and quilting supplies in one place so that I have access to them when I need them.
However, this craft room overhaul has been a real pain in the butt. It has taken me far longer than I ever would have thought. I know, first world problems. I totally get that, but the struggle is real. Working full-time and coming home to work in my quilting room has been a challenge for me and it’s taken me about 2 weeks to get this far and I’m still not done.
I’m not complaining though. Just stating facts. So…if you decide to overhaul your space like I am, set some realistic expectations, because clearly, I thought I could have this all done in a weekend. Hahahahaha! I know, I’m laughing with you!
Moving along, here we have an old tv cart where I once stored notepads of paper, rubber bands and other miscellaneous items in my craft room. It was the perfect solution for what I had been wanting for a very long time. I just wasn’t sure how to achieve it until now.
And what I wanted was a mobile ironing and cutting station that I could have right next to my sewing machine. It sometimes takes longer to complete a quilt block when you have several seams to press and your ironing table or board is not near by. So, this was my solution to that problem.
We purchased 4 – 1″ Roller Ball Bearings at $1.99 each from Harbor Tool and Freight.
Then my husband cut 4 wood blocks 2 1/4″ X 3″ so that we could accurately screw into the bottom of the tv cart without going all the way through the cart. The video will explain it better, I promise. Also, don’t be like me and split the wood. HA! I must admit, I was having way too much fun with the power tools.
So once the roller balls were on, then it was time for me to give the tv cart a little make over. So for this, I used Cricut Adhesive Foil. You will want to prep the wood before you do this, otherwise, it won’t stick to the surface and it will continually come up. That is a very important tip!
Anyway, back to the adhesive foil. I used Stainless Steel, Stainless Teal and Coral Pink in Matte, for the top of the cart.
That’s all there is too it! This was a really fun and easy project to do. Check out the video below.
And here is the final product! If you decide to make one of your own, please feel free to share your pictures with me at:
