Welcome to my Craft Room Office Reveal. Come on in!I’m so excited to finally share my Craft Room Office with you today. It’s a room that’s taken 5 months to complete. You’ve seen a lot of sneak peeks along the way but it’s finally a finished room. With moving like we do, there’s not always an extra room for a creative space so I don’t take the space for granted.
Our current house has 4 bedrooms. Each of our kids did have their own room and this room was formerly one of them but they all insist on sleeping in the same room so we moved our girls to one space and left our son with his own room. Prior to creating this dedicated space, my “craft room” was the kitchen table. My husband quickly tired of my stuff all over, so that’s the secret ladies! Leave your craft stuff all over until he says, “You need a room for all this stuff!” 😉
On to the tour. Come on in!
The wall of quotes is the one thing that’s still in progress. It’s a collection of my hand-lettered prints from my Etsy shop. Moving left, you come to my workspace and Jumbo Pegboard Wall.
You can find the tutorial for the pegboard wall here.
In the corner is my new printer! It’s an Epson Workforce 7620 and so far, I’m so happy with its print quality. I love that it’s wireless and can print wide format prints.
The gold paper lanterns in the corner were a few bucks each at Target.
The “Hello” Paper Flowers sign tutorial that hangs up the window can be viewed here.
Next, is my desk/hutch office space. Until yesterday, this piece was in our family room but we did some re-arranging (we tend to do that a lot). This was a piece given to us by my parents. It was my first Annie Sloan Chalk Paint® makeover a few years back. You can see the before and after and full tutorial here.
I use some coffee cups and lace tins (I bought these for $1 in the Target $1 bins the other day!) to hold all my sketching and drawing tools. The shelves hold some of my favorite design books and the issue of my first magazine feature. Random knick-knacks and things I love adorn the area as well as some succulents and a cactus (because those are the only house plants I have any success keeping alive!).
Moving left, is my Vintage Frame Gallery Wall made from free, up-cycled old frames. You can see the tutorial post for that wall here.
Finally, there’s a closet, and that’s where I’m hiding the mess of fabric and boxes and paint and all kinds of crafty things! 🙂
By repurposing free or cheap things, the only money we really spent other than the printer was on the Pegboard Wall which cost a bit over $100. I hope you enjoyed the little tour and find some inspiration for your own creative space!
