Feature Friday: Craft Nook

Throughout the week I featured things that I made/updated to put in my craft nook and now I get to show you how they all go together...

Ta-da!

 

So, here's the breakdown.  The round frame was just under $1 at a garage sale.  The other frames we have had forever.  Hubs got the vase in Poland and I'm sure it wasn't cheap, but it was free to me. ;)  The candle holder on the wall (with the decor ball on it) was $1 at a thrift store.  The candle holders with the candles were a wedding present.  I got the shelves at a garage sale with a bunch of other things.  They probably cost $1.  The spritzer was left at our old house by the previous owners and I found it when we were moving out 2 1/2 years later.  I got the silver rose hanging thing on the right at a garage sale for $2.  The decor ball cost about $5.  The chair was $5 plus $5 for paint and $4 for the upholstery (and I have a yard minus chair seat left over).  The vanity was free but the stencil cost $3 and the paint was maybe $5.  

Grand total:  Somewhere around $32 for the entire nook (including furniture).  Yay for crafting!
