I love pottering round second hand shops looking for interesting storage items for my craft room.
The blue shelf that now holds my buttons was from a little shop in Congleton. It was a bit more than I'd usually pay but it had already been painted a lovely shade of blue so I couldn't resist. It's a perfect size for the Ikea spice jars and small jam jars that hold all of my buttons and bits
The little chest of drawers came from Lady Heyes and was an awful varnished yellow pine. I reprinted it in pink emulsion (gotta love DIY store sample pots) and then a coat of matt varnish. The insides of the drawers were a bit grubby looking so I have lined them with some pretty papers. They are now a perfect spot for my washi tapes and other bits and bobs.
I've also been rearranging the drawers underneath (Ikea Alex) to make better use of the space. When I get chance to take some photos I'll post about my recycled drawer organisers.
