Buttons, Lace and Ribbon organiser

Hello!
Well sorry a little later than promised here is the pics of our new Button, Lace and Ribbon organiser!
Er... I did actually forget to take a pic of the unpainted shelf that I bought for £1 at a car boot but it was a cheap oak and hardwood shelf which had a really terrible tile fixed to the middle of it which was a bit strange looking!
So Off it all came and on went a wash of white emulsion.That was wiped off with a wet rag then followed a pale green wash which was also wiped off then a blue and then a pink! After drying I sanded the edges down so that the natural wood came through.

I then loaded it all up with my stash of bits and bobs that will be playing a big part in the the new line of products coming soon to Birdcages & Butterflies!

hmmmmm still could do with more organising though....how about some labels??



and here are some for you to use on your button jars!!!!
With colours on.....
....Or without!!!!


These fit nicely on small spice ikea jars which we are storing our sorted buttons it. But they would also be great on jam jars too! Just enlarge the size if you are an avid collector and have BIG storage jars full of buttons like some peeps in blog land I know!!!!!!!

When we have some finished products from our new line then I will give you a sneak preview before the launch of our products and the giveaway! Will be back maybe with some pics of our little summer showroom tucked away in Nana's old brick outhouse.....at the moment its really just an old space but It will be transformed by the time we are finished with it.......with chandeliers included!!!
Thanks for all your lovely comments on my last post too!!! I will probably be posting this to the usual makeover linky parties which I Love reading for inspiration!!! I will add the links soon xx
Linked to Metamorphis monday , Trash to treasure tuesday, DIY DAY,
Until next time

Oh what a great DIY project. You are one clever and crafty girl.

I just finished a project that took 23 years to complete.
Come take a peek.
