Round Revolving Storage

It's Kaz back again with another of the lovely ~{Revolving Storage Units}~. I went for 3 layers on mine so I can get as much on my desktop as possible!! Seriously though, it is important for me to not have to keep getting up and down when I craft so this is ideal as I've fitted lots of bits onto it.

I have decorated it in a similar way to the ~{Revolving Inkpad Storage}~ that I blogged before.

This time though, I thought I'd try and spray paint it for speed, but I discovered that I'm not good with a can and didn't like the finish on it, so I ended up giving it a coat of Gesso afterwards. After that I sanded it gently to give it a smooth surface ready for stamping, which was done with Stazon Inks.

I have tidied up the edges by painting with black acrylic paint and then doodled a little flower design down the sides.

As you can see by the next two photos, I have got plenty on it, especially the essentials that I use all the time.

Again I did a big spin test to make sure nothing flew off!!

I thought I'd finish with a photo of my desk showing how both units sit on the top, full of goodies, but still leaving me lots of space to work with. If only my desk stayed this tidy once I get going!!

wow that is gorgeous Kaz. And you doodled the flowers freehand - clever girl.

I can't wait for mine to arrive. I'm glad I went for 3 tiers too.
