What I Found In No Man's Land...

No Man's Land was the phrase that Amazing Boyfriend named my sewing table not too long after we moved into the basement. Sadly, he was right. My sewing machine tucks into the table, so the top can be used as a desk. Not long after we moved in it became a catch all for mail, receipts, random crafting supplies, hair things, etc. 
 
I am here to tell you that my sewing table is No Man's Land no more! 
  
I cleaned off my desk so that I could un-bury my sewing machine because I had a few several projects that I needed it for. 
 
In the process of cleaning off my sewing table I found this. 

 
A little spray paint, a little vinyl and now it looks like this. 
 


Much better, don't you think?

I'm going to use it as a dish to put my hair pins in since right now they're hanging out in a little pile on my dresser, and my round twisty pins keep rolling off and falling on the floor. What a great solution!

  I'm sharing this project at the following link parties:

  4. Ha! I have a no man's land too - a bit of a dumping zone that I have to spend 15 mins cleaning before i begin to create. I really like the colours that you have chosen in your saucer, and the image.
