A garage sale bargain at $5.00 is now my new 
craft room organization.

I am always in need of more storage for my crafts 
and this is going to be perfect!

I made my own chalk paint using a quart of "oops paint" from Home Depot and un-sanded grout.

I added a teaspoon of un-sanded grout to a mason jar with a little water and shook to mix. 

Then I added enough paint to fill the jar and shook again.

The home made chalk paint has a great creamy texture. 

I've used this paint mixture before so I know it can be
used on most surfaces without priming. This cabinet
was a knotty pine with a shiny finish.

Excuse the iphone pictures, I was painting in the garage.

I replaced the old wooden knobs with new black knobs and handles.

Another piece I had in the garage was an old cubbie shoe organizer. It was made of composite board with laminate, 
painted it with the same home made chalk mixture. 

The home-made paint sticks to both surfaces with no chipping or peeling

After the paint dried I lined the drawer and the shelves...

My favorite part was filling up the cubbies with jars, ribbons, and bakers twine.

Perfect for my craft room and the price was right!
