Craft Room Makeover: Phases I and II
|That's what I aim to do!|
|After painting and wall papering|
|Discovered the hardwood floors|
In those years, I started discovering more of my own personal style and tastes. And, although I still very much like my wallpaper theme, it's not my ideal for a craft space. [Oh, I forgot to mention that last year I decided that this "formal living room" would be better served as a craft space.] So, in an effort to save (money and time), I've decided to leave the walls as is and to challenge myself to create a space that I can work in and feel is a part of my own style.
My first challenge was to get the place cleaned. I started last summer with gutting out the closet and creating a craft closet. Although some of the items have changed, I've been able to maintain the organization of the closet.
|Trying my best to keep it organized|
|Each shelf is basically designated to a different craft form|
|The top shelf is really a bookcase shelf. The fabric bins are up there. Honestly, if I don't use those trashbags full of plastic bags to make the plarn totes, I'm going to have to purge. I'm getting sick of looking at plastic bags.|
There are some corners of this room that are still not that presentable, but this is a work in progress. I look forward to watching this room transform for literally "pennies" - because that's what I have towards this DIY project. lol
|Got the craft table for Christmas. I want to make a table skirt and of course clean off the top. I was looking for something and just dumped the bin on the table.|
|Some like to store in jars, on shelves, in drawers. I like baskets - thrifted finds, except that one in the back. I bought that on a trip in Albuquerque, New Mexico.|
