:: From Barn Junk to Craft Cupboard

"Some More High Quantity Junk from my Barn" 


I am finally getting somewhere in my craft space!  Just looking at this colorful little cabinet; it makes me feel somewhat accomplished!

You may remember it has been stored in my barn for, I don’t know 14 yrs?   You first saw it here in my “What’s in my Barn?” post

old shelving

I brought it inside and having peeled the stickers off—You can see there are still some spots of glue dried on the thing… but, I knew I was going to fill the shelf with yarn---so I’m saving the decoupage for a future date! Let’s not quibble… you know what a procrastinator I am!


I mean look at it!

It’s just cute!  I can live with cute. :) 
Challenging myself to get some of these projects done from the barn is fun, but really,
I just love that I could reclaim this junk from my barn and this project cost me absolutely nothing.  

Not bad for Free!
...and I was also "Caught" @ MRL

I LOVE it, Pat. Finally getting back from my break. I am pulling my craft area together, too, and it looks like we painted our storage things almost the same color. Great minds.......
Hope you are doing well- xo Diana
