Go-to Gal Designer Challenge: Hazel & Ruby

This is my 2nd post of the day!

It's the last Wednesday of the month and you know what that means...
Go-to Gal Designer Challenge time!  

This month, it's all about Hazel & Ruby!

Hazel & Ruby has some amazing crafting products - perfect for every project you could possibly think of!  

I especially love their papers!  They're 18" tall by really really long (144") wide.  You can use them for gift wrap and projects.  I actually just used the last of my first tube. :)
Rainbow hearts - need I say more? 
Newsprint floral.  Yes please!

So, I have two projects for you today that use Hazel & Ruby products. The first, I'm pretty excited about.  I know I've shared sneaks and tidbits on Instagram and Facebook - but I just had built in craft room added to our house.  YAY!  

With that means all of my existing craft furniture had to hit the road.  However, just a few months before I purchased a pair of white bookshelves.  I decided to move one of them into my daughter's room... but I thought it would be fun to give it a little Hazel & Ruby overhaul!
Plain white.  Basic and in great shape.  However, I wanted to give them a little pop.  

So, I trimmed 2 different papers from the Hazel & Ruby Paperie collection and lined the inside of my bookshelf.  WAY MORE FUN!
Forgive the sub-par styling here - it's rather late and I am not risking waking that girl up for props.  :)  I love how it gives this plain bookshelf a little added pop of color while not committing to the level of paint.  

How fun would it be to do this same project but on a completely up crafting furniture piece?  I so want to paint that bookshelf... 

One more project for you... 
and this was actually my first project but I had the paper out and got sidetracked with the bookshelf project!  I had my husband cut down a piece of plywood and I covered it with that Newsprint Floral paper.  Then I matted a frame with burlap and adhered it to the front.  I love how this turned out.  Handmade and perfect for the craft room!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out what the other Go-to Gals came up with - you know it's going to be fabulous!

I'm a paper nut and will put it anywhere! If I don't watch out, my whole house will be covered in beautiful paper. Love the bookshelf!
