Ever since I contacted Karen @ My Desert Cottage to join the "Where Blogger's Create II" party on June 19th I have been on a mission to organize my studio space (no small task!).
I use a lot of lace and ribbon in my projects and I like to have it easily accessible. A couple of weeks back I showed you how I was organizing some of the vintage lace I have collected (you can see the original post here).
The lace was wrapped around rulers and paint sticks and placed in a vase on my work station so that I could see what I had on hand when I started a project. This system was working fine but I ran out of room in the vase for all of the lace that I have collected. While at a thrift store last week I spotted this large wood spool (14" tall).
I added 8 cup hooks to the top edge of the spool....
and then hung the lace covered rulers from the cup hooks. The spool takes very little space on my work station and it's a great way to quickly see all the lace that I might need for a project.
I think this would also be a great way to hang and organize necklaces too.
I'm linking to two wonderful parties....Jan @ Bobbiepins Boardwalk for Boardwalk Bragfest and Marla @ Always Nesting for Woo Hoo Wednesday. Thanks to both ladies for hosting these wonderful memes.
I'm Jane and I'm a junker. In my spare time you will find me shopping for treasures at local flea markets, thrift stores and antique malls or repurposing said treasures into new pieces that I use in my home or give as gifts to family and friends. Somehow the shopping part has overtaken the creating part but I typically have on hand what I need when inspiration hits. I enjoy sharing my projects on my blog and appreciate you stopping by for a visit.
