Craft storage board in the making

I decided that I need a craft storage board for my cottons, ribbons and scissors to get them off my sewing table.

Deciding that I can make it myself, I went off to Lowes Hardware and bought a pre-cut board. I really wanted a green chevron pattern for the base.

I painted the board with a premium white primer (3 coats) and once dried I went about laying the blue painters tape on the board to mark out my pattern. I used my 5 1/2 on square to get the perfect 2 inch alternating stripes. Below is board with all stripes laid down and the first coat of green wall paint.

After 4 coats of green paint (making sure it was dry before each application) the green was done. Leaving it to become touch dry, I then removed the painters tape – this is how it turned out. I was very pleased.

Next steps, I need to add:

  • hooks on the bottom for scissors
  • dowel bits at an angle (2-3 rows) so I can put cotton
  • 1 row of dowel with two end pieces that will hold my ribbon

I will post photos once it is all finished.
