It’s finally here! The day where I get to reveal my newly remodeled craft room and sewing room. It’s been quite a project to get this space how I want it to be, but now it’s ready to go, just waiting for me to create in. So I’m sharing my Craft Room Ideas and giving you the final reveal of my new space! Just a quick little recap of what this space used to look like:
When I first moved in it was green, REALLY green.
So with the help of my parents ( I was preggers at the time)
I painted over the green and made my space red,
After a few years of wear and tear I realized how yucky the carpet had gotten and decided that it was time to rip that grossness out of my studio.
But before I could get my dream makeover I had to organize my space (no cheating!).
Once that was done I needed to decide on the colors I wanted my studio to be (goodbye red and your not so flattering color cast). Then I had to pick the furniture to make the space workable, but not overwhelming (no more massive shelving for me). After that I got to finally decorate my space with some fun crafts (this is after all what I do!). Now I’m ready to share with you the final result of all my hard work! Are you ready?!
Craft Room Ideas:
So much better! Let me take you on a little tour!
Idea # 1 – Keep the craft room pretty
The amoire opens up to reveal my computer. It’s got shelves, storage and closes up to make thing tidy. Keeping my ugly computer/office work hidden away. Makes the space feel much more tidy and serene. I love how functional this thing is – you can see it’s full makeover here. The short version chalk paint and the classifieds are my friends.
Near it is my craft tower that is perfect for all of my Cricut items. I love how handy this thing is and how it’s a cute way to display items. I modified it a bit so I could easily store my mats. It’s a great way to store tools, but still keep everything looking nice.
Idea #2 – Invest in key furniture
This craft table is my dream piece of furniture. I lusted after it for a LONG time and I love how it fits perfectly into this space, and how functional it is. I love that it’s big, and counter height. It has storage on the ends and is perfect for all the different projects that I like to do.
That little basket underneath? It’s full of toys for my little baby boy to play with. He likes to play under my table!
Idea #3 – Make it functional for you
The wall across from the table is what I look at when I film.
So I wanted it to have some inspirational quotes on it and family pictures.
The shelving on the opposite wall of the craft room is purely decorative. It’s designed so I can easily switch out the decor for filming and for seasons. You can learn more about the decor here.
I have to say I really love having a more open/ streamlined space. My old studio had way too much furniture in it and made it feel claustrophobic. I love coming into this space to create. It’s wonderful that it’s organized and that It’s clean. And I intend to keep it that way! What is your dream craft sewing room? Let me know in the comments below!
