REVISITING THE CRAFT ROOM


It is hard to believe February is almost gone and in just a few weeks we will be celebrating Easter.
Life has been busy for us, little things happening every week that have to be resolve, car repairs, several job related trips to the east coast and the maintenance/up-keeping of our home. Never a boring minute!

I have also been spending a lot of time in my craft room preparing Etsy orders. No complains there! :)
I have so much fun sewing.

Today I am just giving you a small tour of the craft room these days. I figured now was a good time since it was kind of clean. :) For me this a work room, not a show place, so it can get pretty messy when I am in there working. 

I really haven't made any changes. Just a couple of things here and there. 





 Please excuse the glare in the pictures. I can not say this room isn't sunny. Lots of natural light, that's for sure. :)

Most of the items I had on the wall and shelving are still there and most of them I made myself.
I use the left area of the room mostly for painting, stenciling and paper cutting.


 I added this small homemade shelf I already had and it fits perfectly under the counter. 
I am using it to store some of my craft paper.




I had to make some changes to the corner counter when my husband bought me this beautiful 
embroidery/sewing machine for Christmas.
I moved the chair to that side and it has proven to be a great space to sit down and play with my "new toy".






As you can see, I still kept next to it my little old sewing area, since this is the sewing machine I use most of the time.



The opposite side of the room has stayed the same.
Last year in May I decided to open up more work space in the craft room by upgrading the closet area.
You can see that post here.
The extra work space has been so helpful to me.







 
The little sitting area is a great place to sit and look at some of my favorite home magazines.






I am also adding more cloth drawers to the center work bench and I am in the process now of making 
some labels for each cubicle.



And that is it. A simple but just perfect space for me to create.





I hope you enjoyed this little tour of my craft room.:)
Thank you so much for stopping by. I really appreciate your visits.
Enjoy the rest of your week.

  23. I am loving your craft room! I admit I have been wanting to do some pictures of my woman cave that holds extra dishes, table runners, knick knacks but I need to clean it so you can see the floor first! You are so organized, it is inspiring.

  25. Oh my goodness, I love it. I have the room over the garage for my scrapbooking room. It's big and has a nice big window. But... it looks nothing like yours. My storage is all mix match. Your room gave me so many great ideas. Thanks for sharing.

  26. I love your craft room. It looks beautiful and "user friendly". I will be creating a craft room in an upcoming move. You have given me several great ideas.
    May I ask why your sewing machine sits on glass? I am new to sewing and wondered if I need to consider glass. Thank you for sharing!

    1. Hi, Michele. The glass was just a personal choice. I had two large pieces from a previous project and I decided to use them in the painting area of my craft room and also under the sewing machine. I wanted to keep the counters free of scratches and stains. I hope this helps you. Have creating your craft space. Take care, Maria
