Taking a page out of My Military Mansion, I made a super cute and useful project today out of all things I already had on hand!
My 16 year-old daughter got a Christmas gift of a tray loaded with wonderful bath items. She used the bath items but had no use for the tray. Tried it in the guest bathroom. No go. Tried it in the new master bedroom. No go. Then today it hit me, "It matches my craft corner!! HOW oh how can I incorporate it??"
So here's what I did:
Cleaned the tray, glued some cork to it...
and VOILA! A very chic cork board!
to replace this less than chic option:
Way cuter right?
And speaking of the craft corner; I can't remember if I ever showed you the finished product. Although it's not COMPLETELY finished, the stuff that is left, like possibly painting the desk and the chair, you'll mostly never notice.
But first, some before shots:

Then there was the intermediate craft/music/exercise area
And now the final draft:
