You saw the washi tape mason jars I made to hold all of Lucy's crayons, twistables, etc.... right?
I bought a plain and simple, wooden crate from the craft store. (I paid about $7.00 for it.)
This might come as a shock to you ..... but I spray-painted it with Rust-oleum's Heirloom White.
I'm sorry .... I just love that color. It is THE. PERFECT. WHITE.
And then .... because it's "Washi Week" around here .... I busted out more fun tapes from my washi collection (some from Washi Wishes and some from Pick Your Plum), and got to work wrapping up the box until it was all kinds of CUTE!
(Lucy had a whole lot of fun "helping" me and sticking the extra pieces of washi tape all over EVERYTHING:)~
When I got down to the "handles" in the sides of the crate, I just wrapped right over them, then cut out around the holes with scissors. Easy!
No, I'm not bitter.
(Yes, I am.)
Finished product, complete with crayons jars, stickers, paper, markers, paintbrushes, paint smock, and any other art supplies that would otherwise be strung all over the house:
CREATE CRATE will be going on a "new" metal antique table I scored at a recent "junk" sale .... and it's all going into Lucy's new "art studio" (aka: the corner of the playroom I'm calling Lucy's Art Studio! haha:)~
All I know is .... Lucy loves her new art crate.
And I love her.
So I therefore love it, too. :-)
Fun for all!
Pssssst! You wanna know a little secret?
..... There just might be a giveaway happening here tomorrow involving -- you guessed it! -- WASHI TAPE! See you tomorrow!!!
