WHAT’S YOUR STYLE? Storage for my sister

If there’s one person I know who can adapt to other people’s styles and figure out what works for them – it’s my sister.  She’s an extremely talented stylist and also a theater costume professional.  When it comes to figuring out “a style” – she gets it.

She had a birthday this past weekend.  I wasn’t going to MAKE her something but I got inspired at the last minute when I was at the salon getting “my hair did.”  Everyone can use storage right?  I started with these items:

Personalized rustic bin supplies

Now – I’d just like to say that while I’m a huge fan of craft store bins – if I can get one that is already painted and looks all rustic for the same price or less – I’m in!  I love stores like Ross, HomeGoods, TJ Maxx…you get the idea.  I did buy the chalkboard at a craft store.

I took apart the scissors – apparently true stylist scissors have a little screw in the middle.  Took it right out so I could attach it to the wood frame of the chalkboard with a regular screw.  (Easy does it with the electric hand drill people – the chalkboard will break if you don’t take your time.)

Then I prepped and spray painted the whole kit and caboodle!  (Standard note: When using spray paint, follow the instructions on the can.)

I sanded the scissors a little to give them a more rustic look and then clear coated the whole thing before I pulled the tape.  By the way, before people start giving me a hard time about ruining a perfectly good pair of stylist scissors – these were $6 at Ross ok??

Then I used my nail gun (again, carefully) to attach the finished chalkboard to the front of the bin.

So total cost of project (already had the paint)?  About $15.  That’s what it costs or more to get one of these already “fixed up” at craft stores etc.  And mine is personalized!

I guess it was HER style – since she immediately said she was going to put her brushes in it at the salon!  🙂
