I have clip on rings. I have to find out what I did with the other package I bought a while back.
    They have paint for plastic at WM and you could get a few cans and spray the drawers whatever color they have that you want for $10.

    Yes, that is just what I was going to post, but decided to read all the posts.lolo Yes you can mod podge over plastic. Take fabric you like and just do the front of the drawers. Will change the look of it greatly.. have fun..;o)

    there is paint for plastic on the market now.You could buy the color you'd like the multi colored drawers to be and spray them all one color to conform to the room's decor.(?) Just a thought......

    I tried my hand at modge podge. I finished the spice rack which is now a button holder and started modge podging the plastic rack. I would not recommend buying one of those...I would spend the money on something better - one of my biggest buying expenses. Name:  spice rack.JPG

    Love your room! I have a Horizon 7700 and wondering about the table you have yours sitting on. Care to share the brand...also is the insert the one that came with the machine or did you have a custom one made. Thanks in advance for any info you share....

    @Linda: The table that the sewing machine is on is a gidget II, the insert is the one that came with the sewing machine and works great! The chair is from Staples and its perfect.

    I love the idea of painting the plastic...I am going to do that for the sides of the plastic bins. I modge podge the front of drawers. So far not too bad. I think I will also paint the black metal white. Thanks all for the ideas!

    Carol....dont make curtians for your table....I did that for my table and it was totally ridiculous after I got it done lol....it was fine for a week but when I needed things that were in the boxes etc...well the curtians kept getting in my way......so I now have some containers that open from the front and the back that I found in a antique store.....so try to think of something you can get into quick rather then pulling curtians and having them get in your way.......but your room is awesome love what you have done it looks so cozy.......Trish

    I am going to look for curtain rods that open for the back and side of the table that way it will be easy to see and get at. I onlly will have my Studio dies towards the back so that should work and I only need the dies for the begining of a project. Not sure where to buy the rods but if not in the store I am sure I could find something like that on line. I still have one bin that I want to cut into shapes and than just have one scrap wicker basket, which is pretty big with a lid.
