Thread Storage

I've seen several people use old spice racks to store spools of thread.  I headed off to Goodwill to find one and I found this:
 I couldn't tell if the words were etched in, or they were just paint, but I figured, if they wouldn't come off, then I'd consider it a $4.99 donation to a good cause (and I could keep the cute little bottles).  
 I was in luck!  They all came off quickly with a razor.  I roughed it up w/ my electric sander.  Then gave it 2 coats of cherry red paint.  When it was dry, I roughed up the edges a bit with my sander.

Now, I'm basically done with my little craft room.  All I need to do is get a functional desk. Clearly a computer, sewing machine and a serger are a little much for this old computer desk.  My dad said he'd help me build one over spring break. Stay tuned.
