March Craft Projects

Hello, everyone!  I hope you all are doing well.  This week, I thought that I would let you know what is on my craft agenda for March.

As of lately, I have been even more addicted to Pinterest! This has given me many craft project ideas that can be achieved by simply re-purposing things I have and giving items much needed makeovers.  I cannot wait to get started on creating and designing these projects!

Here are some of the projects I hope to accomplish this month:

1.  Spray Painted Folding Desk Chair:  As some of you may not know, I am a college student who lives on a budget.  Therefore, I have to make do with what I have. So, I thought I would give my ugly folding chair a new look.

I would like to try to achieve something similar to The Moon and Me's makeover that you can access here: Paint Your Wagon - Or at Least Your Folding Chairs. Here is a gorgeous picture from the makeover on this blog:

 I hope this can be done by purchasing one can of spray paint!  I haven't decided on the exact color yet, but I am leaning toward lilac.

2.  Framed Key Wall Art:  I love wall art, and I especially love creating my own.  One post that has particularly been on my mind since seeing it is this Refurbished Key Portrait Tutorial on Amy's blog Mod Podge Rocks:

I just so happens that I have the perfect key to complete this project that my mom purchased for me at Hobby Lobby not too long ago.  She has a ton of old keys displayed on the wall of her craft room at home, and she knows how much I love them.  So when she saw a vintage looking, rot iron key with birds on it, she just had to buy it for me--I LOVE birds.  If I remember right, it wasn't more than $10.  I absolutely can't wait to paint my key a fun color and pick out an ornate frame as well as a fun background graphic.  I definitely plan on hanging this near the entry to my apartment in the Fall. 

3.  Drawer Dividers:  As some of you may know, I am obsessed with pretty storage and organization ideas.  I just love knowing where something is at a moments notice without having to dig for it in the process.  That is why I absolutely cannot wait to try this Cereal Box Drawer Divider Tutorial from Jen over at I Heart Organizing:

Don't you just love the bright colors and how everything has it's own neat little place!  I have the perfect scrapbook paper to achieve this project.  Also, this project is of special interest to me, because I keep all of my jewelry in my desk's only drawer in my dorm.  Let me tell you, it is a mess.  So, this is going to be the perfect transformation. 

I can't wait to get busy on these projects and show you the before and after processes!  I hope this post inspired you, gave you some new craft ideas, or gave you some new blogs to follow.  Happy crafting, everyone!  What are you working on for the month of March?  Let me know in the comments below.
