Sewing room storage: DIY Thread and scissor organiser.

I know Christmas feels like an age ago now, well it does for me but I want to share with you the fabulous Christmas pressie my clever Hubby made for me, I was so impressed and it was a complete surprise. On my Christmas list was threads for my sewing and Hubby had noticed I'd also been looking up on my computer, thread storage.

So... he made me this!






Hubby up-cycled an old picture frame, by painting it, covering the back of the picture frame board insert with foam and then with grey velour material, which apparently was an old jumpsuit and then he made the hooks and pegs with wooden beading and dowels. The picture frame and jumpsuit were purchased from a charity shop and the rest he had or bought. Now I wouldn't of chose the grey jumpsuit material but it goes so well and looks really lovely.

What a clever chappy with a very happy wife.

This week I've been featured on Funtastic Friday, a fabulous linky party on Olives n Okra hosted by Sherry. Get over there and add your project or just take a look for some inspiration.
