I purchased a new work table and painted it sage green and antiqued it. I love the way it came out. I also bought two mug shelves, painted them green and put dowels through them to hang spools of ribbon.
I'M SUCH A SMARTY PANTS!
I found a green wire three tiered plant stand at a clearance center for $8 and found that it holds my spools of cotton string and large spools of ribbon. Functional, pretty, cheap...BONUS!
