Craft Room Reveal!

We finished my Craft Room on Willow Creek! I’m pretty tickled with it!  Here is a post with some before pictures. It was good before but there wasn’t enough work space, soooo…we moved the love seat and added a table and a couple of shelves that The Husband made years ago…

I love the color of my shelves! I wrote about the color and the fabulous Behr Paint with Primer HERE!

Shelves

I’ve surrounded myself with things that inspire me…like these paintings my mom did. She never showed me these portraits, not sure why.

I have loads of pretty storage for my one million necessary items!

I found a set of queen size sheets in the most scrumptious pattern. I used them to cover a couple of the tables…

 Mom’s paintings are on every wall, they make me feel like she’s close by…

I got a couple of yards of the clear table covering at Hobby Lobby to protect my pretty fabric.

The Husband covered the closet doors with cork-board for me! (posted HERE) I love it!

And inside the closet I have more practical ( but unattractive) storage for paints and ribbons and sewing notions and paper crafts…and bunches of other fun things!

Isn’t this GREAT? I love it!

The ironing board is covered with a quilt so I can store more goodies underneath…all of the tables have storage drawers underneath! I’m packed in here like you wouldn’t beelieve! (The pups love the pillows I covered in cozy chenille!)

DSC_0099On top of the tables, I try to keep it pretty… I so love pretty.

And onto another subject I soooo love…

Fun-Room Overview

Another source of inspiration for me…the pups and our wild cat, Reba…We hang out in here all day on most days, they love this room as much as I do!

Now that we’ve moved into the new (old) house on Stone House Lane, I have to update my craft room again! That’s on the To-do list!

  7. Wow, Robin, your creative space is full of practical AND pretty storage ideas! I love it. And those shelves your husband made look gorgeous in the Behr paint with primer! You have created a fantastic work/play space. I’d never want to leave it, especially since you’ve made it cosy for all the pets, too! Perfection. xo

    A Masterpiece of lovliness! I was so moved by your mother’s portraits–that she hadn’t shown them to you and she probably wasn’t happy with them. AND THEY ARE SOOOOO GOOD! I think God’s trying to tell me something–not sure exactly what….

    So much love,
    J

  9. What a great room for inspiration and creativity. I can see why your fur babies like it. Can my kitties come and play?

    Have a blessed week!

  13. What a jewel box of a room! I absolutely love everything. One thing that you didn’t mention, but maybe not new, are your drapes. They are so beautiful- did you make those also?
    I read your posts each day before going out.
    Thank you so much.

    Oh! Your “fun room” is just wonderful! First of all, your pink and green colors are so soft and inviting! I can just imagine you spending hours and hours creating beautiful things. Your baskets are so sweet and practical. I surely like the way you have covered your work tables. Did you make your curtains….they are so much fun! I love the fringe! And, last, but not least…..I LOVE your precious little furry companions. No “fun room” is complete without one or two little buddies!
    Thanks for sharing! I am inspired to get into my “sewing room/sandbox” and play today!

  15. Stephanie says:

    I love Nanny’s paintings! I have never seen one of her portraits. They’re beautiful, of course!

  16. What a thrill to have such a gorgeous room to do your crafts in. It’s lovely and so well organized. Hugs, Marty

    What a GREAT space and you (and Mike) made it beautiful too!!!!! The storage is fantastic and your Mother’s painting are lovely! I am so glad you have them and are using them! Have a wonderful week, my friend! XO, Pinky PS, we used the Behr paint with primer too….Joe made me all new window boxes (9 of them) and instead of staining them to match the decks he painted them black! I LOOOVE them!

  25. MichelleH says:

    So pretty! I think I shorted my keyboard by drooling on it. I want to come play in your gorgeous new playroom. Wonderful job creating a beautiful and functional space!

  26. jeanne says:

    Thanks for the tour — happy crafting!

  27. Beverly Atkins says:

    Love your re-do! It looks like heaven. BUT your little dog looks so much like my Callie. Callie is a rescue dog and is probably a Maltese/Poodle mix. She curls up just like your little dog and looks at me over her tail too! I just wish my craft room looked that good!

  28. Very pretty! I love all the storage and room you’ve got. Love your window treatment, too!

    Hi,

    I love your pink toile curtains. Can you tell me, did you make them or buy them ready made? I need some and need to go if I need to sew some or if I can find them ready made. Thanks so much.

  48. What a sweet space. I love all of your feminine touches.
