I’m always looking for items that I can use for craft room storage. This Repurposed Letter Holder makes a great caddy for storing cutting tools in my craft room. It was an easy thrift store find makeover.
Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from our own stash of goodies! Everyone is allowed a $10 allowance for necessities to complete their project, but the bulk of it must be created from their own stash of goodies. Check out some awesome creations you might be able to make from your own stash! This challenge is a fun one to participate in each month. I always like being motivated to use up some of the items that have been stashed away.
Meet this month’s challenge participants:
For this month’s craft de-stash challenge, I didn’t buy any new materials. I’ve had the letter holder in my craft stash for months and hadn’t taken the time to give it a makeover. The paint and vinyl I used were in my stash, too.
Supplies Used for Repurposed Letter Holder for Craft Room Storage:
- Letter Holder
- Waverly Chalk Paint (Peacock and White)
- Paint Brushes
- Vinyl Decal made with Cricut
I see letter holders at my local Goodwill often. I’ve given makeovers to a Tool Caddy that is a handy way to store hammers, screw drivers, and other medium sized tools. I had some of my cutting tools stored in it, too but I had to sort through to find these small ones. When I spotted this letter holder at Goodwill, I knew it could used to hold cutting tools in an easy to access way. I cleaned it with TSP before painting it.
My Craft Room / Home Office got a makeover last year using white and teal for the color palette. I used the same Waverly Chalk Paint that I used for other items in the room. After two coats, it looked pretty good.
I wanted to give it a little pop of white, too. I used Frog Tape to cover the part of the holder that I didn’t want to have white paint.
Using a small paint brush, I carefully painted the edges of the holder with white chalk paint.
I found a peacock feather design in my Cricut Design Space. After cutting and weeding it, I attached it to the front of the holder.
This goes well with the Peacock Wall Artt in the room. In this close up shot, you can see that it’s not completely smooth. The floral design of the letter holder was a little bit raised. If I planned on using this in another space in our home, I would have sanded it down before painting, but since it’s just in a space that I use, I didn’t bother with that extra step.
I like that this keeps my small cutting tools within reach as I’m working on a project at the desk.
The repurposed letter holder fits nicely on my desk along side of the Lazy Susan that I also use for crafting items.
