Small Transformation-- Book Holders

I'm on this slow process of organizing my craft closet.  The goal is to bring it all out into the dining/living room because that's where I do most of my work.  I had a slight set back this week.  I purchased an entertainment system that was going to become my craft station.  It was perfect.  I painted it, distressed it, made some slight changes to it, and... it wouldn't fit through my entryway.  Are you serious??? I was so bummed.  I still am.  I'm trying to figure out Plan B for my craft station.  I think I'll have to find 2 or 3 smaller pieces that match somewhat to fill a wall.  Wish me luck.

I had to do something to make my craft closet look prettier and make me feel better. So I chose to work on my book holders. I love how they organize my magazines, but I hate how they look. 

So with a little modge podge, scrapbook paper, and hardware they now look like this:

A quick side note... I'm SOOOOOO glad I put down my work paper.  I spilled modge podge allll over the place.

I'm linking up to Met Monday and DIY Day

I love the way those turned out! They are sooooo pretty!

I cracked up at that last picture - only a true blogger doesn't stop to clean up the mess, but instead grabs the camera so that she can blog about her spill!! Hee hee
