31 Days The Craft Room
Day 31: The Craft Room
The craft room has been a mess for a while and I really needed to be able to work in there with a clear mind and a clear table top! You have NO idea how excited I am to be on the last day of my 31 day series, Bring this Home to Order.
Do you remember how it looked before… (insert blushing cheeks)
and NOW my family has an organized craft room to make and create, draw and paint, glue and tape….
I didn’t get around to doing all of the BIG plans I had for this room as far as decorating goes but to be honest, I couldn’t really see past the mess. I needed to get it in order first so that I could see what I really wanted to do. There are some things I know for sure, the legs on the table need to be painted. We put it together ourselves by buying legs and the laminate counter top from the home improvement store. I wanted the laminate so that we can use paint, markers and even hot glue on it without the worry of ruining a nice desk.
I would also love a rug and window treatments. I still have to get the space set up for my kids to make their videos. I plan on painting the wall behind them white and adding a chair and a table for their filming needs 🙂 They both love posting to YouTube.
Even though there are some things that I would love to do, right now I am going to smile at my accomplishment! The supplies are all where they need to be, the table is cleaned off, my paint is all in one place and my kids think it’s awesome!
My sweet girl has already gotten crafty in here! She painted the cutest heart on these hobby lobby tote bags!

I want to thank you all for your sweet comments and inspiration you offered me during this month!
Linking up to : Goodbye, House Hello, Home
Wow…from a cluttered space, its neat and clean space, nice!!
Thanks! It is from Ikea and it will hold those albums!
I love you shelving unit with the cubed cubbies. I have been in search of something on that order for a long time. I never find one tall enough or deep enough for 12×12 album storage. Will you share where you got it?
Love you room!
You must feel wonderful! You’ve accomplished so much here lately…looks great!
Your space is so organized! I find it so much easier to be creative when my work space is in order.
I am happy that it is over…BIG commitment! ~Sonya
It looks great! 🙂
Sonya, it is such a wonderful work space! I’m sure you feel great after accomplishing everything over the past month! ~Christy
Thank you so much for all your sweet comments! What worked for me this time is that I took it one section at a time. I cleaned off the table one day, then the book cases another, the closet a different day. That helped me not scatter things all over. I usually try to do it ALL at once and I too end up with stuff all over my dining room and hall. The section technique seemed to work great! Good Luck ~Sonya
What an incredible job you have done. Almost makes me decide to get my craft room in order. I need to purge some things I haven’t used in ages. Give them to a school or something. There’s an elementary school about a mile from our house. I’ll have to check it out.
I’m one of those people that has to take everything out, go thru it then put it back little at a time. But problem is where to put all that stuff while I do go thru it. Hate to have too much lined up in the hall while I work thru it. Might just have to take it one section at a time or one iris cart at a time. Any suggestions? You’ve done such a great job in your house. We have a small mfg. home so not lots or room to manuvuer especially with winter coming on. In summer I put things out on the back deck and cover them with a tarp. We get high winds that could blow a person over. You’ve really inspired me gal. Happy weekend
Accomplished, YES…another 31 days, NO 🙂
Thanks Pat! Happy Halloween to you as well!
I LURVE this room and it’s now official I want to move into your house!!!!
Yay!! You made it and what a difference!! Happy Halloween!
Yay!! Do you feel accomplished, or do you feel the need for 30 more post-holidays? 😉 enjoy all your accomplishments, and the impending holidays. Be blessed!
