I love Project Runway - I qoute Tim Gunn frequently to Adam "Make it work, People.", I have a love/hate relationship with Heidi - I like her honesty but sometimes her honesty borders on cruelty and that I don't like... and while I do not claim to be anywhere near fashionista status, I love a good, inspiring, competition that involves creativity along with skill! I've had mixed feelings about the past few seasons of winners, I often seem to LOVE the runner up. So, Season 10 started last Thursday and thus, my "Quote for the Week" is starting off with:
"My hair looks a hot mess. I don't wanna look homeless." - Rafael Cox
Here's Rafael with his hair scarf that is containing his hot mess!
I don't have a good tie in, so I'm switching subjects now!
Last week my husband finished my Craft Island - This is is it! It has 6 shelves total (3 more on the other side), a HUGE cutting mat and it's on casters so it rolls easily wherever I want it! This is it before I organized...
I really wanted a vintage fair look for this space - I love the clean and bright white with the wicker baskets and random containers. I think that my supplies make my space look colorful without worrying about a lot of clutter. I picked up a tall, white bar chair from Ikea for my seat (I plan to make a red ticking chair pad) - the tables pretty high but it's perfect for cutting fabric because I don't have to bend over and abuse my back!
If you want more information on how you (or your husband) can build this style of island for NOT a lot of money and my upcycling old shelving units, just let me know!
Okay, that's it! I'm glad I got to share my new(upcycled) craft table with everyone! Hope your week isn't off to a "hot mess!"
