Just for Miriam

I had planned on sharing little by little my crafty space or as it’s know around here “the zone”. I prefer to think of it as my “shabby space”. It is in reality a little balcony that we closed in and took the double slider doors out of. It overlooks the learning zone so we are together..but this is my little patch.

I wondered which bit to share first – as most of it is a mess right about now..lol. Then while reading Miriam’s blog it came to me!

My Little Shelf…started life as a second hand yukky beige shadow box thingy. I threw some spray paint at it to cover the laminate, then added the matt white and scratched it up a bit with an old nail file. Whalla – an altered shelf in my favourite shabby style. Cost – about $10. Now I know it’s not as flash as the one on Miriam’s blog (which I love and would fit in well here..lol) but it does the job! Another part of my altered life.
