Craft Room: Before & After

Picture

Finished!
Operation Organization…Part 1…complete.  The hub’s home office has completely been transformed to the wifey’s craft room.  How exciting is that?


Very!!!
Then again…I am easily amused and so it really does not take too much to entertain me.  I will admit that when I started this project I became borderline obsessed with it.  I basically worked on it until I finished it.  Just a forewarning, this post is picture friendly. 🙂
We start with the before.
Wow.
Picture

Craft room before.
It had become the dumping ground to my odds and ends of whatever.  Stressed me out to even take this picture.  Something had to be done.  This room had to be de-cluttered and organized to a somewhat manageable room.  During this process of de-clutterfication…I came across this little fellow…
Picture

That little guy became my color inspiration for the room.
The room itself was very dark and so my goal was to brighten it up a bit without having to do anything too dramatic…like…repainting…buying new furniture…or adding a window.
This became my “accent” wall.  I thought about adding board and batten to this wall, but my mind quickly went lazy on me.
Picture

Wall before.
Instead, I decided to add a simple stripe right across the middle.  I used paint already on hand, Silver Strand by Sherwin Williams.  Original paint is Unusual Grey by Sherwin Williams.
I made the canvas myself.
I know…
not all that impressive.
Seriously…had no idea or vision for this.  All that I knew was that I wanted it to say “In my happy place” and this is what I ended up with.
Kudos to anyone that hand paints words…or anything for that matter.
My hands were shaking so much the whole time.  Truly wasn’t happy with it when I finished, but it took me so darn long to paint it that I decided to make it work!
Picture

Wall after.
Added the scrap paper bunting by punching a hole in the paper and threaded it with twine and then attached it to wall using a push pin.  Super easy…although the hubs refers to this wall as the “carnival wall”.
Men.
Picture

Made and added some paper medallions to this beautiful piece of artwork.
*snickers*
Picture

Paper medallions.
Another view.
You can see closed closet doors here…
…wander what would fall out of there if they were opened?
Picture

View from french doors.
Oh what!?
The closet is clean too???
I know…I know…
I amaze myself sometimes.
As you can see, some of Craig’s office stuff got left behind.
Picture

Closet…home of Craig’s stuff.
Below you can see my Upcycled Shoeboxes in action.
Picture

Added some inspiring quotes to some frames.

Spruced up a plain jane memo board.
Picture

Craig left behind his dark office furniture.  Tried my best to brighten it up a bit.
Bookshelf before.

Added some cute wrapping paper to the back.

This is my first attempt to add downloadable files so please let me know it they do not work!  I made these using PicMonkey.
Picture

Stole some items from the kitchen for this storage.
Picture

Craig gave me these super cute handmade mugs for Christmas.  Each one says, “Love the trees…please…”.  They each have a tree painted on them representing the four different seasons.
Adore.
They can be found at Uncommon Goods.com.

Picture

Picture

Made this simple wreath using a wire hanger, burlap ribbon, and leftover curtain fabric.
Picture

Used Katie Bower’s Fabric Flower Tutorial to make the rosettes.
Picture

How cute is this hot glue gun picture??
Guess that’s a question geared toward my crafty readers…
you special readers can find your free printable at Missie Krissie’s.
Made my labels using PicMonkey.
Picture

Meet my sexy new chair.  The one piece of furniture that I bought to replace the big black office chair.
Saw this beauty at HomeGoods and had to have.  I promise the color is not as it seems in the pic.  It’s sort of a salmony color.
Mmm…salmon.
I’m hungry now.
Picture

LOVE!!!
Picture

Another wall before.
Picture

French door wall before.
Made some No Sew Curtains.
Can’t wait for it to warm up so that I can leave these doors open!
Here in Georgia, spring lasts for a week and then I’ll have to close the doors because it will be too hot!
Just kidding.
No I’m not.
Picture

French door wall after.
Made some craft inspired word art…again using PicMonkey.
Found these frames at Michael’s for $4.99.
$4.99!!
Picture

Bella loooves this room because of the carpet.
Rug found at Garden Ridge.
Picture

Removed the fan that was never used.
Picture

Light fixture before.
Added this super bright fixture.  Found this at Lowe’s for $40!
P.S.  Would not recommend changing a light fixture by yourself.  Was getting so frustrated I was about ready to jump off the ladder head first.
Kidding.
No I’m not.
Picture

Light fixture after.
That’s it my peeps.  So excited this room is finished without spending a ton.  Hope you guys like it as much as I do!!
Picture

Craft room after 🙂

UPDATE:
Just could not leave that darn canvas alone…had to add some ruffles.
(Actually, it’s just burlap ribbon hot glued in a pleated pattern 😉 )

I sooo wish I had a spare room to use for storing stuff like this. Our old dumping space just became my daughter’s big girl room so now we have no dumping spaces left! I’m sure my parent’s are getting sick of me leaving bits and pieces in their garage!
Love your new room. The colour scheme is especially great.

My husband created a Craft corner for me in our garage. I’m working on fixing in up now. I want to do banners, like yours, too. I can imagine that my husband will call it a carnival too. lol Your dog reminds me of my childhood dog, Buffy. She was a terri-poo and when she got a haircut she looked like your dog. We’d call her Fifi and she’d want to go outside and roll in the mud. I love your chair!!! and the colors you did your room. Thanks for sharing the inspiring photos.

Okay, where do I start? Let’s see…first of all, let me say that my craft room looks WAAAAY worse than yours did. Honestly. I love pretty much everything about this room, but my favorites are: your idea for storing ribbon in the closet (pinning it), the paper you added to the back of the bookshelf, the creative adult quote (pinning), the tree cups, the button jars, the salmon chair (yum!) and the pillow sitting on it. It all looks fantastic together. Great job!! So glad I saw you over at the It’s Overflowing Link Party.

Oh my gosh Luisa, this room is super cute! Love, love the color combo! We are finishing our basement and I am putting in a craft room. Can’t wait till I get to this point. I did Batten board on one wall so even though you decided not to do it I’m thinking we think alike. Love the stripe and the canvas is fab! Love the chair also. I have one similar from Pier 1 in my sewing room. It is aqua with a chenille back. I was like you. Saw it, fell in love, and had to have it! Great organizing and I will be hopping back for another peek when I get to start the fun decorating. I have a link party, Share Your Cup Thursday. I would love if you shared some time! Now following.
hugs,
Jann

    What a wonderful change! I love how you spent a very minimal amount of money and made most of your changes without paint. Looks like a brand new room! Nice job:-)
