today i thought i'd use vintage finds as my inspiration post.
i wanted to share some ideas for repurposing in your craft room.
my personal belief is that newer isn't always better. ;)
i prefer things with a history, things i can give new meaning.
so, here you go...i'll share some of my favorites and i'll be more than happy to answer any of your questions in the comments section!
use a vintage bed spring to hang art, ephemera, layouts, or inspiration
no need to only store your albums on shelves. use locker baskets and milk crates!
an old paper company piece is the perfect place to store my alpha stickers.
look for unusual small pieces of storage/furniture...these are great for small embellishments.
milkglass and colored glass pieces are perfectly suited for small embellishments and tools:
old tins work for adhesive storage:
and who knew that glass floral frogs held pens so well?
wire baskets make a good home for punches:
and i love collecting old muffin tins. my odds and ends live there. things i don't want to forget about when making a page.
vintage dish-drying racks hold layouts:
and plate racks can hold them too.
sewing machine drawers hold journaling tablets, and glues (to the left)
this old stamp holder holds my maya mists (which are all still in a bag since my move...HA!)
and a vintage (reproduction in my case) dress form displays my crystal stick pins and beautiful blossoms.
hope you enjoyed my post today!
