Deb of Lake Girl Paints had been watching for a piece of furniture that she could use to try painting something she’d been imagining for a while: a nautical compass motif.  So, when she spotted this big, green dresser on the side of the road, she felt like she’d been given a blank canvas!

At C.R.A.F.T., Jamie and her husband have to think out of the box to create storage space that can go with them when they move out of their little rental.  Kitchen storage was especially hard to come by–made even more challenging since the walls of their apartment are cement, so drilling holes in the wall is out of the question.  The solution to Jamie’s kitchen storage problem came in the form of an old door purchased from Habitat for Humanity Re-Store for $5.
