Basically I have one desk for crafting and as my "office". So I needed more space on my desk and wanted my boyfriend to make me a shelf to put my monitor on so when I'm crafting, I can slide my keyboard under it and give me a lot more space! Well.. we had some left over wood and somehow he ended up breaking one of the side pieces so we were left to figure something else out. I was browsing the recycle idea thread and searched for "spool" since I had a few and someone had mentioned using it as legs for a chest or something. *Lightbulb On* and some E6000 glue and now I have my shelf! I'm sure he'll be expecting to have to figure something out when he gets home a few minutes. Lucky him I did it and he's free of that project!

I'll probably paint it all white later, but for now it works!

Wonderful job ... great resourcefulness!!! Love it.

The only purpose of the day job is to buy the craft supplies!! Cheesy  Seriously, I LOVE making personalized crafts. I now have a line of hand-crafted fans and notecards using the Zentangle (R) technique. I have also become a Certified Zentangle Teacher and teach other artforms and techniques.

I'm kinda surprised this didn't receive more compliments, because from the point of view of someone who sews a lot, using empty spools for something like this is an outstanding idea! I have lots of nail polish that needs shelving and this gives me tons of ideas on how I can make custom shelves for them. Thank you for sharing this !!
