Not a Mug Tree (Re-use, Recycle)

I love to find new uses for unwanted items and recently picked up a mug tree at an Op Shop for $1.

~

It was handmade (pretty roughly - probably a High School woodwork project) by someone called "Jamie", but it had the rustic charm I was looking for and would serve its new purpose very well...

... as a Craft Tool Tree.

It will most likely end up painted white in the style of Shabby Chic.

It works well and keeps the things I use most close at hand on the sewing desk.
