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!

Liz said...

Wow. That. looks. amazing. You've motivated me to get started on cleaning up my own!

Katie said...

Wow, I LOVE the room! SO BEAUTIFUL! I also love the video, because you are still totally a mom... "okay, can you open this for me now?" :) Cracked me up!

Amy said...

It looks great! And I'm so inspired to fix up my own craft room now. Thanks for posting a video... it definitely gives a better description as to how the room flows.
Oh, and I love that quote too! I may have to swipe it as well. :)

WOW! I love the saying on the wall, too. The peek a boo door is amazing!!! Such a great idea!

Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors craft room! Thou shalt not covet thy neighbors craft room! It's fantastic and I am only a little jealous...ok kind of a lot :)

Jami Nato said...

too freaking cute. love it all. 'specially the vintage stuff. makes it original.

Jennifer said...

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 :)

Rhadonda said...

How awesome to have such a big space to work with. Love the frame wall. And your boys, too cute!! Love the feeling of clean and organized.

Tiggeriffic said...

WOW~! that's an amazing sewing/craft room. I love the peek-a-boo window.. You can keep a track on what each other are doing. The painted brink wall sure opened up the room...Good Job~!

Tricia said...

I'm a tad bit jealous of all of the craft space you have, but I'll get over it. It turned out great. You did a wonderful job of brightening up the room.

Christie @ A Lemon Squeezy Home said...

What a great, inspiring space you've made for yourself! I love the colors--love the DI chair. LOVE the quote. How fun! Thanks for sharing!

Spock & Yoda said...

Oh dear, I'm afraid it's so beautiful that a few of these ideas might fall out of my computer into my craft room....

Gabe and Christina said...

It looks amazing! Good job!

Leca Unplugged said...

That turned out amazing. If I were you I'd want to sit down there all day long and just admire my work. Way to go!

Courtney Elizabeth said...

I love the wall with the red frames on it!

ellie g said...

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!!}

three14creations said...

LOVE the video! What a great addition to the photos of your room. It turned out amazing! I love all of the details you've added throughout. I'll have to steal some of your storage ideas. So fun!

MeenyMoe said...

It looks amazing!! What space you have now to work in!! Love it all! Especially the picture frame wall and the peek-a-boo door into the playroom! That is totally awesome!

Tori said...

So jealous. What I wouldn't give for a craft room all my own. I love what you did. It looks wonderful.

Mrs. Ohtobe said...

Great Job! I am so jealous. I made a nice little Halloween wreath last night and posted about my craft room as well...*ahem* ;)

Anonymous said...

I am jealous too! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the color combination!

Tari said...

For the artwork Baden did, you could use a Mr. Clean eraser. They've taken off the art off my walls! :) And I love the colors in your craft room!

Jenn said...

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

Camille said...

Stunning! I love the red frames and your pegboard organization. Plus, your craft room is stinkin' huge, how lucky are you? You can barely walk in mine when the ironing board is up, lol.

Kris @ everywhereorange.com said...

It looks awesome!!! you are making me want to get my craft space together!!! thanks for the inspiration!

Laura B. said...

Love it!!! Especially love the frame wall and quote!

Amanda said...

You are awesome!! What a wonderful space!!!!

Tanya said...

Great room. Although it does pale a bit in comparison to your ridiculously cute kids.

Twins Squared said...

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!

Sweeter Hours said...

I love it! Nice job.

Britta said...

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.

meeks said...

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!

Aubrey said...

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?

D & H said...

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...

berg4 said...

Looks great Cheri - love the red frams - they really pop

Carrie said...

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!

Delia said...

What a beautiful creative space. I like the quote you put on the wall.

Dana said...

Oh can I please come over to play?? Your room is sooo awesome and.. inspiring! I so need to work on getting some colorful, happy inspiration on the walls of my craft room!

falabella said...

Amazing!!! The peek-a-boo hole is the most fantastic thing EVER EVER EVER!!

Pickled Pink said...

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.

leardonsbelle said...

Wow! What a fun room. I want to use some of your ideas in my craft room and throughout my house. Thanks for sharing all your great ideas!

Are you kidding me!! That frame wall is DEVINE!!! You need a big table floating in the room to cut patterns and make a mess and such!!

It's hard to believe that's the same room! What a great creative space now. Way to go!! I wish mine was so nice. I'm here from the crafty storage site, getting ideas for taming my own mess. Thank you!!

Oh, {sigh}, my room still looks like your before picture! Good for you! Love the painted brick and your napping chair!

Shoshi said...

Just watched your gorgeous video on Crafty Storage! Thought I must come over here and post a comment for you. I love what you've done, and the little peekaboo hole is just adorable - as is your sweet little boy! Very well done indeedy.

This is AMAZING, I think it makes such a difference to have a tidy and inspiring workspace, the wall art is fab! Love the video too! Off to tidy my not so tidy work area now...:) Sarah
