Papercrafting Station

Papercrafting Station

I decided to turn my secretary into a papercrafting station.

The top section used to look like this filled with various tchotchkes

while the drawers were filled with random miscellaneous stuff.

So I emptied everything out

and replaced the fabric backing with a colorful paper background. I added back the things I like to look at or inspire me.

Like a reminder to “DREAM” big

and “SHOOT FOR THE MOON”.

A couple of angel ornaments that are never put away

and very important reminders of my triumphs too.

and various stamps throughout.

I’m so happy most everything I need is now in one place,

a place for everything and everything in it’s place.

I’m ready to create!

 

This piece has come a long way since it’s painted  beginnings:). Sometimes I get the urge to paint it again and then I remember all the hours I spent stripping it and wimp ou every time. Who knows, never say never.

  1. Hey Jocelyn! I love what you did with this secretary. it looks super-efficient and attractive too. I agree that it is so important to have all your creative tools in one place. it is hard to do because sometimes I switch gears and decide to paint and then I move a bunch of stuff. But you have a lot of room in the drawers, etc. it looks like a successful workspace for your paper art. I look forward to seeing more!
