shabby chic: before & after

I know I haven’t been a very faithful blogger but I have a bit of time on my hands right now so I thought I’d amuse myself with some before and after posts showing my journey towards a shabby chic craft-room.

Hope you get some pleasure out of them too. I am sooooooooooo happy with my little craft room, I find myself stopping as I pass by just to admire my handiwork.

My aim was to be as cost effective box & basketas possible, so I started by gathering some boxes and baskets
that were doing various jobs all over the house and then raiding the storage cupboard for all our old paintpaint 3

I used up all our old white paint!

my Aussie Farmers Direct boxes came in handy.

new and not-so-boring

basket a1 I did lash out and buy a few baskets too when my good friends Renae & Becca pointed them out on sale (how could I resist!)

see you tomorrow for some more before & after snaps.
