I need to look for some more pink tubs to fill this side, but these will work for now. I love having my paper cubes along the sides.... Everything is right at my fingertips :)
Did you notice my wonderful cutting mat tabletop? this is what inspired this whole project lol. My son got me this mat several years ago and I always had it on my big oak L shaped desk but that desk would not fit right in this room so it had to go to my Hubby's office and I needed to come up with a new idea for my new room to hold this mat. When I dreamed up this idea, I had no idea it would come out this good.
And do you notice my can organizer? I made this several years ago and it always sat on my desk near me but now it is even better because I now have it on a turntable that I salvaged from my microwave that recently bit the dust. The idea came to me to drill a spot for it on the island so I asked hubby and he said yeah no problem.... Eeeeeek! Happy girl right here! If you want to see how I made my Can organizer you can find that old post here: Pretty tin can organizer
Plus I can move it and pull out the spinner wheels if I need to work on measuring or cutting something large on my mat. I so love being able to up-cycle things especially when they become such a wonderful asset to my work space.
ok well I have much unpacking to get to and I am in the middle of making a card so I better get to work. Thanks for stopping by to check out my new Craft Island. I hope to make a walk-thru video of my new Craft room and some of the ways I have found to organize and a few more up-cycles to share with you all when I get it finished. As always, I wish you a happy and crafty day!
