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
Habitat for Humanity ReStore in Knoxville, TN.
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!
