Weekend Project: Craft Room Addition

I'm a little short on words today so I'll let the pictures do most of the talking. A while back I pinned this:
And LOVED the idea. I had a pile of my ropes and twines that I use to wrap up gifts and my etsy orders just piled on my desk. Not so pretty. This was the perfect solution! I love how the coffee cans contain the balls of twine, the old reclaimed looking wood and the measuring tape down the side. Just my style.
 This is my version: Pallet wood used as my reclaimed wood, coffee cans painted with a little silver spray paint (and a little beat up from my little people building towers with them before they got mounted on the wood) and a spare measuring tape hot glued down the side of the wood.
Now all of my ropes and twines have a home off the top of my desk which makes me a very happy lady! And the measuring tape down the side makes it so easy to measure what I need for a project or package and be on my way.
I have the best husband in the world for helping me turn my wishes and dreams into reality!
More Craft Room Addition posts are soon to come. I was going to do one big post about a finished room but decided to break it up and show progress bit by bit- because it takes us awhile to get things done around here and that is okay. I like to keep it "real" here on my blog. 

I hope you find inspiration in your day today!
