Due to my prop hoarding capabilities, I’ve now successfully driven us to resort to more studio storage. I love the wide open, bright white studio space, but when we we’re building everything out, I really underestimated the power of being able to conceal junk behind closed doors. All of this to say that desperation led to cuteness of our new DIY color block storage.

At first I had a bit of color shock considering I’m used to seeing everything white except for the kitchen, but after being able to shove about three weeks worth of upcoming project materials into the cabinets, I’m officially on board!…

Since we had a ton of leftover fabric paint from the DIY workshop, so I figured what the heck, I’ll paint it! At least if this DIY painted chair makeover extravaganza went really south I wouldn’t miss the chair, ha!

I think I like how it turned out though! What do you all think? Don’t get me wrong, I know the pattern is a little crazy, but would you ever paint a pattern on one of your old chairs?
