Craft Room; {A Year in the Making!}

After almost a year it is finally done, my craft room is complete and open for business!
This is what the room looked like before …
Don’t you love the moving boxes and bare walls?  Just blah enough to get my creative juices flowing!  I decided I wanted to paint the walls a warm Pumpkin Spice color.  I was pretty stoked when Matt agreed to this color and helped me paint! Squeee!
After the walls were done I really wanted to try a faux wallpaper technique.
I was truly inspired by a blog post by Ainhoa at A Little Bit of Everything.  In this particular post she madeover an IKEA rug by painting a trellis pattern on the rug.  Since she was kind enough to include a link for her stencil, I knew that was what I was going to do, and when I woke up one Saturday morning and Matt had painstakingly created the trellis stencil for me I knew I had to do it!
So after many many many many hour (seriously this took forever) I am happy to reveal to you my
Craft Room with the trellis wall treatment!  If you would like to learn how to re-create this type of wall treatment head over HERE.
I know I am biased but I would have say this is the best craft room this side the Mason Dixon line
(that’s a Southernism for BEST CRAFT ROOM EVER!).
Antique sewing table, complete with hand painted one yard tape measure.
I was able to recycle a set of shelves from our old house.  The metal shelf was a craigslist find that I paid a whopping $ 1.00 for; a little spray paint and it was perfect.  The craft baskets were picked up on clearance at Walmart and hold my future project out where I can see them.
A great place to display some of my favorite pictures,

and items I hold close to my heart.
Storage for small items!
And the tiniest coolest miter saw I have ever seen or used.
Yet another Walmart clearance basket with the hardware from an old door I picked up at the
I haven’t decided exactly what I will be doing with these but I can promise I will do something!
I was given a floral chair so I added a white boxpleat slipcover and now I have a comfy place to brainstorm or even dare I say it … Relax!
This vintage cart, another Habitat find, is the perfect place to store my fabrics so they are visible.
And let’s not forget the awesome Desk that Matt painstakingly refinished for me!
Fabric bulletin board for my fabric swatches and other small projects.
And finally I attempted my first DIY chalk board.  This is the perfect place for my ToDo list!
Thanks for touring my craft room!
Check out the before and after …
Sadly I had to kick the pups out of the room during the photo shoot … they kept photo bombing me!

    This is so fun and fabulous I think just being in this room could inspire me to greatness! I love the color, it's such a happy color and I love that you accented the wall with the stencil. Genius! Absolutely a perfect 10!

    Wow! I had to check this out, because I have this thing for orange and white! LOVING your craft room! I'm inspired just by looking at it! Great job!

    I've done a few orange crafts…. I need more orange….. where? I'm thinking…

      I am still a little surprised that I went with Orange … being from a city where the University of Tennessee is located if you paint a room orange people think you are a huge football fan. Im so glad I stuck with my gut instincts on this one! What about an orange laundry room?

    Gorgeous and fun! Love those shelves!!! Your little dogs are so cute! I miss my Dalmatian. She was the best dog ever.

      Thanks Amanda – I still have a hard time believing it all came together so well! Our pups are basically our babies and I know what you mean Fenway is the most affectionate dog I have ever had!

    So tasteful to just do the stencil on the one wall and I love the pops of blue throughout. I also need to see my supplies (or I forget what I have) so I love that you have pretty bins and shelves everywhere. I came over from DebbieDoo's newbie party.

    Love, love, love the pumpkin walls. I love orange and I’m having a hard time finding just the right shade. Can I ask what you used? Thanks
