My Craft Room

Just off our kitchen is a little room with double-doors.
Most people would surely use this as an office.
Luckily, I have a husband who fully supports my crafty pursuits
and I get an entire room dedicated to my hobby!
(Minus one lower cabinet for files and other office-y necessities.)


I wish I had a before photo of these cabinets!
They are metal units, around 40-50 years old,
and came from a hospital undergoing renovations.
I don't want to think about all the gunk they had
on them when we came into possession of them!

Originally a very bright yellow, my husband
spent many hours sanding and painting them.

I love the vintage feel of the sliding glass upper units.


It is amazing how easy it is to keep it
organized now that everything has a place.

I use this side of the workspace as my cutting area.
The countertops are actually MDF that my husband cut to fit,
and then covered with a high-gloss paint.


The area under our stairs was put to good
use as a spot for my sewing and fabric storage.
In a small space every square inch counts!


Now that the space is organized,
I would like to focus on bringing in art and decor.

(While clean and organized, it is a little boring!)

My style is typically pretty subdued,
but I feel like I can have a little more fun here.

I love the idea of creating an inspiration/
display board on the wall opposite the cabinets.

Etsy has quite a few things that would look great in a creative space.
Below are some of my favorites:







I'll keep you posted on this work in progress.
Thanks for touring my crafty space with me!

I just spent the last 40 minutes going through all your old posts and thoroughly enjoying myself! I got to your blog via your "lacy shirt" tutorial :-)

I'm really impressed by how clean and uncluttered your craft room is. I feel like mine is so full of *stuff* there's no room for decoration! I can't wait to see more.
