The Craft Room - the final chapter!

Hooray! I finally totally finished the craft room and today I'm going to take you on a little tour. I'm really happy with the way it turned out. I wish I could have you all over to see it because it's heard to get a good video or picture when it's a naturally dark room. The colors always look a bit off. Anyhow, here it is!


Here's a quick BEFORE photo.  Yeah, not so pretty.


And here's the finished look.





It's done!  That means I can start Rex's Super Hero room.  I'm really excited to get that one going. 

Thanks for stopping by.  See you tomorrow!

  9. I am so jealous! It turned out great. I think the coolest feature has to be the slide through opening in the wall. I am sure the kids just love that. Now you can be even more inspired in your new room :)

  17. I love the wall with the red frames on it!

  18. I am admitting to extreme covetous feelings regarding the red frame wall, and the wrapping paper holder. Well, strike that, the whole peg board has enticed me to sin.

    Forgive me?

    {PS....LOVE THIS!!}

  25. Wow! Those red frames are amazing! I love it!

  31. I love your craft room! My hubbie is redoing our basement over the next few weekends. He claims there will be a space for me so that I don't have to sew at the dining room table and then put everything away every night. I am sooooo showing him this post! :)
    Thanks!

  32. I LOVE your craft room! You have totally inspired me....well, you always inspire me with all your great ideas. I love the wall with all the frames, and that quote.

    ReplyDelete
  33. Well done! I'm so pleased for you ;)

    I recently re-did my room, and even now, I open the door and kind of expect the shambles from before...so I am constantly getting a nice surprise of a lovely finished room with things I love around the place.

    Enjoy your room! You deserve it!

  34. I love that your ironing board has the requisite iron, but also a rather heavy duty looking power tool. Amazing room, come do mine next?

    ReplyDelete
  35. Wow. You are amazing and this is inspiring! It looks great! I have a craft room, laundry room, and junk room that all resemble your "before" picture and that I slowly need to work on. I just don't think of all the little decorative touches you add! Maybe one day I will get there...

  37. I love it! Thanks for sharing! I have a craft corner in my laundry room (4 shelves) and I haven't filled them even, but it's so nice to be organized and READY to do anything. The sky's the limit! I'm happy for you!! Also, I love the quote! I need it somewhere in my house for me to see often. Thanks!

  41. Thank you, for sharing your room with us!!! I love the sliding door, so that the boys can peek-in on mommy; that is too cute! I also love your new chair & the price makes it even groovier, not to mention I'm in love with your avocado green floral sewing chair! Congratulations! I can't wait to see the superhero room! By the way, I love the name Rex! It was my grandpa's name & I've only heard it a couple of times, in my lifetime.
