Craft Room Fix-Up

When my in-laws came to visit over the holidays they rather unexpectedly decided to help us give my craft room / guest room a make-over. Here's a couple of before pictures:

Note the futon from college, the old, tiny desk, my mom's old sewing table, and a spare TV stand complete with tube TV.  Oh, and the hideous beige paint.  When we first moved in, that paint is all over the house and I'm on a mission to irradiate it.

My in-laws decided to help us buy a double bed and install a counter along one wall.  So out with all the hodgepodge furniture!  

Funny side story, we put all the furniture in the triangle, a.k.a the curb, a mysterious place where things magically disappear!  & yes, it did all disappear!

After the in-laws headed home and the holidays died down, I also went in and painted the entire room.

The old light had to go as well.  It's amazing what a difference a new light makes!

I am sooooo in love with this blue color!  It's Silent Breeze by Behr Ultra.  I want to paint those LP frames white.  The wall behind the counter needs something on it and I have a few ideas rolling around in my head.

Here's my little crafty corner with lots of storage!

My fabric is stored in mini bolts in that book case.

There's not only a lot more work space, but the whole room is bright and happy now :)  I have a bunch of little projects I'd like to work on to finish off the room  Stay tuned for more updates!

  1. it looks great, I bet you're really pleased. A blank wall is the perfect excuse to make some goodies to go on it.
