A craft room with storage solutions.
Do you remember this room almost a year ago when I shared it the first time?
I am sharing this a second time around for those who missed it the first time.
This time of the year is so crazy around here the school year is almost over.
My daughter will be getting out of school for her summer break in just a few weeks.
I have been working hard in my garden and going through some things doing spring cleaning.
During the summer I like to enjoy my time with my daughter and not do too many projects.
They grow up so fast and before you know it they are all grown up!
I have been making some little changes to this room since I last revealed it.
The new reveal will be shared soon.Nothing major just some small changes.
Let’s go back and see what this looked like the first time around.
I have wanted my own creative space for awhile .
I was inspired after seeing so many amazing rooms in blogland.
Although I don’t think mine comes near any of the amazing ones I have seen I am pretty happy with the results.
No need to show you a before photo of the room.
It had our pool table/air hockey table in it and we moved that into our basement.
I did paint it a fresh coat of white.
The armoire was in our den.
I moved it in this room to store supplies.
Found this old screen at a garage sale.
The vintage pins are mine I just added them by sticking them in the screen.
Pretty flowers from our market Jewel.
Love this desk it’s the perfect size for this space.
That sweet French chair was only 4.00!
I painted it Annie Sloan Old White and sanded it a bit.
I recovered it with a paint tarp that I already had.
That basket stores my lace and bits of trim.
The metal cabinet stores my business cards.
The desk was painted in leftover white paint that I had.It was a custom color so I don’t have a name.
I then used Annie Sloan dark wax.
I did not like the results so I washed on a coat of Annie Sloan Old White. I love the soft look!
Love this funky little table.
Found this for 8.00 at a thrift store it is not crystal but these are still pretty expensive normally.
I did not want to hire an electrician right now to hang this I am on a budget so I bought a plug and added it it.
To lengthen it I bought an extension cord I then added two cord covers.
I chose to hang it and plug it in to the side of the room.
Visually I like it better in the corner but I would have to manually plug it in to use it everytime I walk in the room.
The outlet that the plug is in now is connected to the switch.
Another view of this room.
That shelf is great to store thing but also looks great as a display too.
Again decorative and functional.
That old metal cabinet is also great for storage too.
Lots of drawers to store little things.
