Wrap it up!

Posted by Kristin Rauch in blog | Craftiness | Embroidery | Gifts | home | Thrifted | vintage

I put together a little wrapping/shipping station a couple weeks ago in my basement. It’s in my creepy not yet remodeled (maybe never will be) laundry storage room. But it is a bright spot in a ugly room and is working great to have things in one place to get things ready to ship.

I painted a square (well it might be a rectangle I didn’t actually measure) on the wall with chalkboard paint. I have had the paint hanging around for months waiting on another project that has never happened. I marked out the squarangle with my level and then bordered it with is canadian generic viagra safe and effective. Seriously, DO NOT use any other tape beside Frog tape if you want a crisp line. I have used a ton of different painters tape in my past years of DIY and working with clients. When I found Frog tape I fell madly in love. I used it for my first project of my Son’s bedroom canadian pharmacy viagra generic. That was a lot of stripes at 7+ months pregnant and frog tape was amazing. This is not a sponsored post and I am not being compensated for saying this at all I just firmly believe in crisp paint lines and the easiest way to get them . :)  Oh and did you know you have to let chalkboard paint cure for several days and then condition it? Who knew. ;)

Okay moving on from the chalkboard. I found this enamel top table on the side of the road several years ago and have had it in my laundry room for folding since then. It is great and I can still use it for folding in it’s current location/use. The bins underneath have some of my etsy product, and larger boxes for shipping. Oh and isn’t that floor the bomb? I would never even consider taking it out. ;) Those rad metal tubs are from West Elm right before I started this project. They are for planting winter bulbs. :) But I have a black thumb and they where to cool and inexpensive to leave behind.

I’ve had these wire baskets laying around from my oooooold craft room before it was Luke’s room and have never found a place for them. So up they went for pretty supplies I want to see.

Um this idea for storing washi tape came to me as I am pulling everything together on the wall! I think it’s quite genius. :) At least for my use. It’s just the outer ring of an embroidery hoop. I have a drawer full as I can’t seem to pass them up at Thrift stores. Never buy them new, they are seriously less than a dollar at a thrift store.

I hung some  bakers twine on a string so it’s easy to roll off and cut.

I brought my lovely little brass fruit in here to keep me and the jingle bells company.

Well that’s about it! It is much more pleasant to wrap and ship lately. :)

Pardon the odd lighting in the photos, remember it is in my dingy barely lit laundry room.  Just keeping it real, although I guess if that was completely true I would show you the rest of the room but that’s not going to happen.:)

 

Thanks for stopping by!

  • After you first posted a pic of your washi tape storage solution I stole it right away and did the same thing in my sewing room. Problem is I only have like four rolls of it. Guess Id better get going on my collection, right?
    Whats the newspaper-looking thingy on your chalkboard with your name? That’s really cute:)

    Hmm it seems like your site ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just
    sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole
