Craftalicious...Craft Room Reveal

Of all the projects that I am so thrilled to have completed, this ranks right up there...
My Craft Room.


Today, I am taking you through a random little journey into a space that makes me quite happy, motivated, and more organized then I knew I could be.
Before I share some of the changes, I wanted to remind you how this space started....and then you will know why my new space makes me feel the way it does.



The transformation is so amazing that even I, have a hard time believing that this image was taken from the exact same spot just months apart. You can see the entire journey here and here.

To be fair, I am not the only one who is thrilled with the new space.
The color pencils are happy they now can be organized and easily found when needed.


This picture of my sweet mom and siblings is happy because I spray painted it to coordinate with the hot pink rug that I got from Mohawk that serves as the focal point for the room.


The lampshade that I made is happy, because it gets to sit on the 'sewing side' of the room and provide some extra light. The clock, frame and peg board holders are happy cause they were also sprayed to match everything else.



The cabinets from the garage are happy, because they were refreshed and repainted white and are so much happier holding my craft supplies, then holding garage junk.


The craft table is much happier now that I painted it white, then it was when it was black and being used in the breakfast area in the kitchen. The glass top is perfect when cleaning up a craft mess.


The gift bags and wrapping paper are happy because they are hung neatly on peg board and ready to go when needed.

My husband is much happier because this is the view that he sees each day when he walks into his office on the other side of the wall that we put up. You can read more about that here.



Even my kids are happier, because they now have a great space to come up to and craft, color and make mom special cards that just melt her heart.


Everyone is so happy...... in fact, I could have sworn that the glue sticks and scissors were holding hands singing kumbaya the other day.
What space in your home makes you just so ..... happy?

It is so great to have a space just for creating in a home and not have to move it all again after you are done. A great transformation.....you will get so much more done!! Thanks for sharing......and the glass on the table is a fabulous idea....I just used a large piece I had for my table and taped off the edges with duct tape....such an easy cleanup!! Blessings, Linda

  16. I love it! I think a craft room should be colorful and yours is. I think a craft room should have lots of storage for supplies and yours does. I think a craft room should have space to craft and yours does. I think YOUR craft room could be in a magazine! Really! Looks so pretty and functional too.

  20. You better check on all those craft supplies each morning cuz I think they are going to be sneaking around and partying at night. That's what happy supplies do you know. The room is awesome by the way!
