Craft Room Reveal

        I am so excited to be able to share my new space with you today!  My craft room/office is finally done!  It was more work than I expected as it always is, but I am so happy I have this room now!  I live in a three bedroom house that is super cozy (that is a nice way to say small) and we are just in need of all the space we can get around here.  The room is quite small at a mere 8 x 9 but it works for me!  This room was previously my 5-year-old daughter’s room and although set up to be her bedroom, she rarely slept in the room since she began sharing a room with her sister more than a year ago.  We would use the room when family visited, but again, only a handful of times a year.  What I really needed was a place to work, craft, do paperwork, store supplies, and keep the laptop.  I felt guilty taking away Ana’s bedroom, but I knew it was OK she saw the new room and exclaimed “I don’t like it, I love it!”  Instantly I knew I had made a good choice to convert it into a craft room.  It’s only been in use a few days and already it is the hottest hangout in the house!

Here was a picture of Ana’s bedroom before:

Ana's Bedroom Before MakeoverYes I loved it.

It was the cutest room you ever did see except it was never used for much.

A craft room?

Oh please.  That is just what this house needs with three crafty ladies living here!

Chairs $0 (already had on hand)
French Chair $0 (already had)
Fabric for chair recovering and hoops – $12

Total cost for redo: $96

I just love my new space.

  1. What a beautiful room! Love the furniture, the colors, the organization, the natural light. The hoops with fabric make such bright and pretty wall décor. And that rug–oh my word, it rocks! Congratulations on your new crafty space!

  2. I love the craft room makeover! The colour palette is so pretty and I especially love the wool rug. Wow! Great job.

  3. You did a great job! I love the little white dots on the chair and that table is so stinkin cute!!! :) Happy Crafting!

  4. Love it! A craft room is the place to hang! It’s no biggie if you make a little mess. You’d think mine was the living room, it’s where we congregate :)

    • I love that it can get messy and I can let it be and shut the door to come back later! Makes it so much more fun that way!

      • Lol! Love the freaky friday music!! Too funny! Well you did a fatisatnc makeover the first time around & I expect the 2nd time will be just as good if not better! You guys do fantastic work!!

      • Dirk is open op zondag.@Maria, ik vind die van jou ook erg mooi!@Josh, de bloemen waren zaterdag vers in huis.@Fleur, pioenrozen zijn er maar even, dus als je de kans hebt, dan is het nu..

      • Vidyut…love yr writing styles( my delete button is not working, so cannot remove the extra “s”). The way you express yr self- strong and clear.  I was in a job i was not that happy with.  I quit and am now doing things closer to my heart( I have a home based online biz which deals in video mails, online channel, video con etc).  After resigning, I felt I should have taken that step earlier.  I sincerely wish you all the best.

  5. Oh Stacey – I love your craft room. All my kids are grown and gone and I still can’t get a space in this 3-bdrm house. What is wrong with that? Oh well, I am delighted for you and your girls to have a place to play. Blessings, Patti

  6. Happy girls, happy Mom. Lovely craft room.
