yesterday, i previewed a project i was working on. today i’m here to share the before & after! i inherited this wrapping paper organizer from my grandfather. he built in in 1997. he made three – one for my grandma, one for my mom and one for my aunt. i’d always loved my moms so when my grandpa said i could have his, i jumped at the chance! i knew a little coat of paint and some TLC and it’d be brand new.
the before was a nice shade of yellowish white. i guess after 15 years of use, a little discoloring is to be expected. i had some teal paint leftover from the wedding (its valspar nautical if anyone wants to know) so i gave it a fresh coat. i used some wrapping paper to line the insides and voila – a fresh look!
what do you think? looks pretty good, right?!
i love it. and it fits perfectly in my craft closet. because of course, i didn’t measure it before i had ryan move it from the kitchen into my office…fully loaded and all. it might be pretty but it is HEAVY. especially when you have 20 rolls of wrapping paper.
and 5 of them are the same. did anyone else see the cute wrapping paper target had this year at christmas time? i mean, teal birdies? yes please.
