A place to call {HOME!} For fabric that is!

I love a good Before and After!!!

I have been on the hunt for a good Dresser and hutch to transform! I was desperate to find a home for all my fabric! I love the idea of having my fabric organized and beautiful and on display ready to inspire me every time I walk into my Craft Room! My new happiness is for sure
an inspiration!

I found these two mismatched pieces at my local Thrift Store!
The Hutch was $25 and the Dresser $35.


Both were constructed with care and would serve me well. We just had to get over the fact that they were dated and let’s be honest UGLY!

I gladly welcomed the challenge and set off to find the perfect color! I followed my Furniture Refinishing Steps I have listed HERE and got to work!

A few hours later I had a sparkling new piece of furniture ready to be put to work!


So I filled her up with pretty folds of fat quarters and yards of cotton! Her drawers house my collection of Felt and even more fabric! This baby makes finding what I need a breeze!


I save all my scraps and in the buckets they go…


I was in heaven sorting and folding and organizing all my fabric! I just sat back and gazed at it all when I was done! I love her!!! My little home of all things soft and bright! She lives in the corner of “My” corner of our home! My craft room is my domain! My refuge! My inspiration!!!

More about my Craft/Creative space to come!

    You are simply amazing Becca. Seriously. You took two pieces of furniture and created that masterpiece. I am in love with it and it is not even in my craft area. Love it!! You are always amazing me. ANd then with the fabric on top? I could not get better. It is making me want to look at your pictures all morning long. I love fabric. Love it.

    How awesome. My husband just demolished my leaning tower of a fabric shelf. It was ugly and awful. I just bought a new book shelf at target for $16 and now I am thinking I should take it back and do something like what you did. I love it.

    What color did you use?

    I've been sick and I've been missing my bloggie world.

    Well, I've just come out from underneath my covers to face the light of day once again. And thank goodness I did. I found this wonderful post! Becca, you are so courageous.

    I'm pretty sure I'd never have the nerve to take this on. But what a glorious thing that you did take it on.

    I'm just breathless….

    Gorgeous transformation!!

    "…………" -that's the sound of jaw dropping. GORGEOUS!! All that lovely fabric just makes my heart pitter-patter!

  39. 39

    AWESOME! And….looks like plenty of room to add more… I love finding something cheap or free and then turning it into a jewel—it's so much more satisfing than going out and buying something new for lots of money.

    Beautiful! What a great piece of furniture you got out of this now. The color and everything is great! How fun to fill it up now!

    It looks so pretty and the color is gorg! All your fabrics look so colorful and organized – I love my craft room too – I know (exactly) that feeling when you walk in there and it feels so good to sit down and just create!

    Happy New Year -

    Wonderful. I love how you married the two pieces together so well. And the color is great!

    Katherine @ Grass Stains says:

    You have GOT to be kidding me! I would never have thought that those two pieces could have been married so well together. What a brilliant end result! I love the color you chose and am totally envious of your visionary abilities. :) Great job!

  44. 44

    Oh, I LOVE it!! Such a clever idea! And it's beautiful! Great job!!

  45. 45

    Totally Cool!!! what color is this? I need to paint a tiny small bookcase that that is the PERFECT color.
    thanks,

    the blue is nice, and the fabric really pops! Nice work finding mis-matched furniture… I'll need to remember that!

  47. 47

    Becca, I love this dresser…what a fabulous way to store the things you love! And those fabrics are so beautiful…makes me wish I crafted more! Thanks for linkin' up to FF!

  48. 48

    Wow…nice marriage of the two pieces!

    If you ever grew tired of the look, you could easily modify the dresser to look like an old apothecary cabinet (or even card catalog cabinet) by adding more hardware (to give the appearance of additional drawers) and by replacing the hardware to look like drawer pulls, etc..

    Wonderful job…found you while blog hopping (from Beyond the Picket Fence's 100 Ideas under $100.
