pretty diy ♥ up~cycled dishrack


i'm super duper excited about the Better Homes & Gardens shoot this week :)
and i've been super duper busy shopping for some new clothes, making paper flowers, spray painting stuff and putting a few finishing touches on my craft room ...
{and cleaning my house}

so i thought i'd sneak in a quick project that i did last week
using some more of Keren's beautiful digital art!

if you're stopping over from FPTFY ... welcome!


i was inspired by a few pictures i saw on Pinterest of old dishracks turned into neat little organizers for holding file folders, pens & pencils ... i spray painted a thrifted dish rack white and covered the utensil holder with some strips i cut from a vintage sheet
i made my file folders out of chipboard {but any manila folders will do} and used the bicycle image from Keren's shop to embellish the folder that would be in front :) fun!


washi tape and a sharpie ... all you need to label the folders
if you're like me {and change your mind a lot} they're easy to remove & replace when you need to reassign the folder


it's a great project when you can take something you aren't using anymore and turn it into something that has a new & fresh purpose ... and that's cute to boot :)



much love to you all this week ♥ 
hopefully i'll be back Monday with a bunch of fun stuff to share!
happy crafting ...

  8. This is too cute! What size chipboard did you use to make your folders? Is it just a file front or an actual folder? Thank you :)

  23. Ok, I have to ask. I bought a dish rack to keep on my desk for my weekly planning and important papers. My files keep flopping over, but every blog I find where someone has done this does not seem to have an issue. What am I missing?!
