Craft Room Reveal


Wow, you guys I kinda feel like a huge weight has been lifted! I have been working on this craft room for what feels like forever, but I can finally say that I’ve finished it! Yay! So be aware, this is SUPER picture overload! I’m just so happy with the final results and it’s very ME! So please bear with me while we reveal here today!

Let’s refresh a little on the whole process, shall we, before we get to the good part!

Last August I started this process…AH! Can you believe that?! I updated with my post HERE about cleaning the room out and getting ready to prepare it.

Then from there, I updated you guys on my Filing Cabinet Makeover in September where I spray painted the black cabinets white and embellished them to match the room.

After that, progress kind of halted for a while…inspiration wasn’t striking and I was keeping busy elsewhere. Then in March I decided to make over  lamp for my craft room and thus the Craft Room Lamp Makeover project was born.

And then last month, of course, I finished up my Cane Chair Makeover.

So now we’re here and here’s the finished room!

Craft Room 015
Here’s the desk area…90% of the stuff is from Ikea . The chair is the Jules Swivel Chair in yellow from Ikea. Then there’s the magnet board and two bars with holders on them, also from Ikea. The cork board is a garage sale find that was originally from Home Goods and the white frames are also Ikea.

I used scrapbook paper from JoAnn’s as my inspiration and color scheme for the room. I used it in large pennants, scalloped garland, on my filing cabinets, and also for my Smile Artwork over the sewing table.

This is the view walking into the room and looking left/center. My craft room is a spare room in my basement right off the stairs, so light in this room and a bright color was extremely important in my choice.

Craft Room 011
This is the view of the door going into the room. There’s my made over cane chair and the shelf I got from another garage sale for a steal and was originally red, spray painted pink. The chevron yellow rug is from Urban Outfitters online for a really good price for a rug that size.

Craft Room 012
I hung shelving on the back wall up high so I could add more storage later if needed. Carli, my pal from DimplePrints, kindly made me labels from her Cute as a Button party collection for me to laminate and label my craft room with.

I tried to organize my room as much as I could so it made sense to me because I’ve gained a LOT of stuff over the past year!

I found a coveted sign at Home Goods that’s a licensed reproduction of Barn Owl Primitives on canvas for $20, so I was THRILLED because I’ve wanted that sign forever and it matches my craft room perfectly.

Here’s the view from the back side of the room looking at the entrance.

I purchased some of my favorite craft and party planning books for the room for decoration and also because they are FULL of inspiration for those times when I’m in a craft FUNK!

Here’s my sewing table, which is still something I know very little about! Smile

Now that I’m finally done with this room, we can move onto our office makeover next! Can’t wait to get started! Thanks for hanging with me patiently over the past 10 months while I finished this project up! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask!

UPDATE: I’ve had a ton of questions about the paint color I used…it’s called Dive In by Valspar at Lowe’s. Hope that helps!

  1. You did a great job! I love the bright colors. It is so cheery and I can bet creativity will flow with no problem in this room. I wish I had the space for a craft room. I especially love the quotes “I am going to make it happen” and “Don’t let comparison steal your joy” it is so true in the world of blogging. Did you make them yourself? I would love to have them for my house.

  22. Oh my! I love your craft room! My husband is turning almost half of our basement in to a quilting area for me. The only thing up right now is the 2×4’s for the walls. He has a diagonal wall and I was wondering just how to implement that space with my desk. Thanks to you, I’ve found it! Also, I have aquas throughout my home and was wondering if I should use the same color downstairs. It’s beautiful. Thank you for sharing all your hard work.
