Whatcha Craftin’ ~ Organizing Ribbon

on November 21, 2012

Good-morning! How are you doing today? I hope well! Are you ready for the big turkey day tomorrow? I know I am! I’m excited about eating all that gooooood food! What’s your favorite food to eat at Thanksgiving? Mine is most definitely sweet potato casserole! I could seriously eat only that and be satisfied:)

Well, this week has been kind of slow in the crafting department. I am in the processing of starting some Christmas presents. I’m also still in the process of organizing my craft room and it’s driving me CA-Ra-ZY!!!

Anyway, I painted the old medicine cabinet and brought it inside to put it together. It sat outside my craft room for a couple days until Mark and the kids complained that it was in their way and I couldn’t take it anymore.

I had Mark help me put the pieces together with wood glue. I measured how much room the ribbon needed and then Mark put the glue on the shelf.

Then we put clamps to hold the wood down.

I had to cut a few more pieces and paint them so I didn’t get it all finished that night, unfortunately! Hopefully I can get it all glued and clamped tonight and it’ll be ready to use when we get home from our thanksgiving trip on Friday.

I’m so excited about this project, mainly because I started from scratch and will have spent NO money on parts. I just used things we already had! (with the exception on the spray paint….)

I will hopefully have a before and after picture for you next week. Maybe one with ribbons on it too:) I also finished everything in the bathroom over this weekend!! I’m way excited to blog about that so next week I’ll take pictures and put a post together for you. I’m Soooooooo happy with how it’s turned out!! It just looks amazing to me and I can’t believe I did it! Of course I had some help from my hubs and 6 year old!:) and that is very much appreciated!

Thanks for stopping by!! I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving tomorrow!
