House Update: Craft Room Reveal
Today’s the day!
After 3 yrs of living in our house, I am FINALLY revealing my craft room with all of you!
And let’s be honest, if our house wasn’t on the market, I have no idea if I ever would have gotten around to sharing my room with you even though I have wanted too because the room was always crazy, unorganized mess!
Would you like to see what I am talking about?
I shared this photo on Instagram last year before I decided I needed to do a massive purge and organize this room. Granted, this was at its worse because a suitcase full of stuff wasn’t always in the room. I took these shortly after returning home from SNAP and I had my suitcase in there waiting for me to empty all the swag.
But anyways…. everything was a mess! Every surface was covered, the floor was covered, it was ridiculous!
Before I show you the room, let me show you what it looked like when we bought the house.
The walls were painted a light baby blue with carpet on the floor.
This room was used as a guest room by the previous owners but I definitely had other plans as soon as I saw it.
Now let me show you what the room looks like today and all clean!
My craft room is nothing fancy and over the top but I have loved having this space and a designated room where I could actually close the door. haha
As you step into the room, this is your view.
White cabinet to the right, large hutch straight ahead, table to the left along with lots of other storage options and that other door it my large closet.
Stepping in and to the left, is a large white cabinet that is full of stuff!
Next to the cabinet, I have a small table with our printer on it with some art work I painted on the wall above.
On top of the cabinet I have some fun little projects that I created and this frame for a little encouragement for this room.
Swinging around to the left is my large hutch. You may recognize this piece from past posts on our house or photos on Instagram and it was previously painted beige. When I started my whole craft room purge, I finally got around to repainting it to this super fun bright teal and I LOVE this pop of color in the room.
This piece is the perfect place for my cutting machines as well at tons of supplies and even some decor items.
I have a large walk in closet in this room. It is under the stairs but it has a large amount of shelves and still tons of space for lot of things. I have a small cabinet in the closet along with way too much stuff. haha Past projects, fabric totes, boxes with old memories, supplies and so much more!
I even have a side where I have wrapping paper hanging and a tote full of gift wrap supplies.
See! I told you this closet was huge!
Right outside the closet, I have my small little painted bird shelf I made years ago and it holds canvases, embroidery hoops, small pallets, and then I have a tv sitting on top of it.
I use a large, long folding table as my craft table in the room. I always had/have the best intention to make it cute by adding a skirt but I’ve never been able to get around to it. But it works great at a work space for me. I have a carousel on the end full of scissors, pens, markers, glue glue, rulers, and tons more along with a small tool box, paper pads, and baby wipes.
On the left side of my room as you walk in is this large storage cube system, along with a roller cart and decorations.
I bought this rolling cart at Michael’s and have paint, markers, canvases, and some random supplies on it.
I had a small little space between the door and the storage cubes and this cart fit in perfectly in that little space so it doesn’t end up as a drop zone for clutter.
I’ve had these storage cubes for year and I still love them! They hold scrapbook paper, paint, painting supplies, glitter, glue, and well, you can probably name it and it is somewhere in this area. lol
I created a gallery wall above the storage cubes and just went surfing my craft room and house for items that I already owned to put on it. I love how it turned out with it’s mix of projects I’ve created, photos, and quotes to keep me motivated in my space.
Then, between the storage cubes, and the window wall, I have this small shelf with more supplies. On each side I have some canvases I’ve painted or are waiting to be painted. Not really the most ideal spot for these but they are out of the way so it works.
Lastly, here is a shot of my curtains. They are one of my favorites things in this room.
I actually bought two sets of these curtains on Joss and Main but have seen them on other sites as well and since they are actually too short for the windows they are on, and the fact that I love them so much, they are coming with us when we move. haha
And if you noticed the rug in the room I bought that at Wayfair and I love it as well.
So that’s my craft room reveal in a nut shell!
Like I said, nothing super crazy and over the top but I love this space and will miss it when we move!
