For lack of a better title, that is what this project really is...a Tape Dispenser Makeover. Yup, true story. I bought a few ugly black tape dispensers at the Dollar Store awhile back to help out my washi tape obsession and just couldn't handle the plain-ness and the boring-ness of them. Blech, no good. They just weren't pretty. You know me, I like pretty. Even if an object has a run-of-the-mill job like cutting tape it still needs to look pretty in my book. Plus, prettifying them makes these little guys fit in my sewing studio a whole lot better :-)
A bit of a before and after picture for you.
Can you believe the Dollar Store sells these babies for a buck? Such a steal! And perfect for washi tape :-)
They look like they cost so much more than a dollar, don't they?
I think I need to make more...pretty tape dispensers for everyone!
I found this vintage soda crate at a flea market a couple of months ago for only $5, such a bargain. I just love the look of it, the paint is worn juuuuust right. For a small while I had my kids art supplies in it but it was just getting too messy and disorganized for my liking so I found a new life for it in my studio soon after...lucky me!
Thanks for stopping by today!
