Green Apple Storage

You know I am a sucker for storage.  I think I have an addiction to storage solutions.  I love taking items that are normally used for something else and tweaking them to work for me.  I found a couple of spice racks at yard sales this summer and have already made those over for my acrylic paints.  IMG_0257IMG_0261

Then I found a random wood shelf thing-a-ma-bob.  I paid $2 (half off red week) for the random wood shelf thing-a-ma-bob at Goodwill. IMG_1307

I was so over keeping my acrylic paints and Mod Podge in drawers.  I wanted them displayed so I could easily access the color or finish I am looking for.  Since I use these products all the time I figured some sort of wall hanging thing would work well.  Do you like my technical terms today?

The random wood shelf thing-a-ma-bob had a clock in the middle.  I thought it was cute so I transformed it a bit to fit my studio’s decor.



I got this Amy Butler cardstock in a stack from Joann Fabrics over a year ago I’d guess.  I used my Mod Podge to cover the old, nasty, worn clock face with something pretty.


Using my Silhouette cutter I cut out a new vinyl letter clock face.


And then applied it to the cardstock.


Then I put the clock face back together (a bit of a challenge I must admit!).

And since I love my FB fans and appreciate your comments and interaction with me I am going to pick one of you and send you a fabulous prize. Jeannette Ogilvie guessed a porthole in a cabinet door.  Good guess Jeannette…email me your address and I will send you something IC inspired.

But it was actually this clock face.   IMG_1320IMG_1319IMG_1318

I am pretty sure I am single handedly making sure Plaid never goes out of business!
