Old Ladder Wrap/Paper Station...getting organized...



Still on a mission to be more organized here...


Oh how I wish I had a studio...but I don't.  I've mentioned  before that I do most of my creating in the GREAT ROOM, on my dining room table.  So I am "on a mission" to make my supplies more "accessible" in cute and junky ways.
Here's what I cam up with for my wrapping/packaging supplies...


This old ladder works perfect for rolls of paper.


I LOVE that cross on the top...bought it that way...gotta love authentic "character" :)


This drawer fit inside for twine, string and clips.


This little water hole in a planter is the perfect spot for twine to thread though.


Oil cans for ribbon...


...and more ribbon.


LOVE this metal tool box...


...great for tags and "such".


And so I guess "that's a wrap" ;)
(Sorry, couldn't resist!!)

Chat soon,

  8. LOOOOOVE IT!!! I tried to buy a similar ladder recently at a thrift store but it was not for sale. That was so sad.

    I love your station!

  15. Really -- if you had a studio -- all of this cute decor would be hidden :) Such a great idea and I especially love the oil cans for the ribbon. I also noticed your cute cake molds hanging on the wall!
