Craft Room TOUR with Pitter and Glink

Happy Friday! Bethany is here today to give you a tour of her fabulous craft room! Its adorable! Enjoy!
happy crafting, linda
craft room


Hey, y’all!  I’m Bethany.

I’m a high school English teacher and a life-long crafter.  I blog about my crafty endeavors and my dabbling in decorating at Pitter and Glink.

Today, I have the privilege of sharing my craft room makeover with y’all.  First of all, you should know that I am an admitted craft supply hoarder.  I also do not like to clean.  So if you add the two together, you end up with a craft room that looks like this.  (I am so ashamed!)

Yeah, it’s bad.  I know.  So I decided to do something about it.  I wanted the room to be peaceful, uncluttered, and organized.  This is the view from the door now…

craft room organization

I gave the walls a fresh coat of paint with the perfect gray.  My refurbished hutch is against the far wall.  My dad and I made the table on the right.  My revamped lamp is on the table, and my striped, embellished frame is on the wall in a grouping with other frames and art.
craft room

This is my ABSOLUTE FAVORITE area of the room!!!  I love everything about it!  I love the rustic-ness of the table paired with the feminine elements.   My dollar store cupcake stand is the perfect size to hold a vintage tin that belonged to my grandmother.  The printable in the white frame came from Landee See, Landee Do.  The camera art block is something that was for sale in my Etsy shop, but I decided to keep it for myself. 

craft ideas

 I created the oval magnetic board, as well as the embroidery hoop art and the book page B.  I DIY-ed the different frames with spray paint and scrapbook paper.

creative space
hutch

The hutch in the corner of the room added much needed storage.

craft room organization

I used different containers to organize all my little do-das that I use for crafting behind the glass doors.  And I couldn’t help but create a couple of little vignettes on the surface of the hutch.

I picked up the owl at Home Goods.  The other pieces I already had, but they were hidden in clutter before.

vintage camera

I’m sure you saw the window beside the hutch.  Did you see the valance I made?

valence

The best thing is that the valance and its twin on the other window cost me nothing!  I used supplies I already had.  Beside the window is my brand new corner desk.

craft room storage

The base of the desk is the file cabinets that I already had, but I revived them with paint and new handles.  My dad and I just created another top for them utilizing a plan from Ana White.

bench

I bought the rug from Urban Outfitters.  The seating for the desk is the bench I “collected” from my neighbor’s trash.  I love the decor on the wall above the desk.

I made over the mirror and created the wreath from a dollar store wreath form.  The other decor on the desktop is mainly stuff I DIY-ed too.

I created the to-do board and the curio shelf, as well as the wire bulletin board.  The lamp was a brass thrift store find that I spray painted and bought a new shade for.

 There’s another window to the left of the desk, and beside that is my laminate bookcase that I revived.  The swallow art and chevron frame are from previous tutorials on my blog.  The little deer blocks are for sale in my Etsy shop.  The other wall is pretty much taken up by a closet with sliding doors, so I didn’t take any pictures of it.

And our tour ends where it started.  (I had to take a shot with my lamp turned on.)  This makeover was A LOT of work, but I really did enjoy it.  I love the fact that I pretty much DIY-ed the whole room.  I didn’t realize how many of my projects are in the room until I started writing this post!  I love that it has given me so much material to blog about.  I hope you like the room half as much as I love it.  It makes me happy to walk in the room and look around.  It’s sooooo different from how it started.  I have to admit that a couple of times I’ve just lain on the floor and absorbed the uncluttered, peacefulness of the room.  And I’ve really enjoyed doing some projects on my new desk.  So if you have a room that needs a makeover, just go for it!  It will be a lot of work and there will be some bumps in the road, but you will feel so much better when it’s made over, especially if you DIY!  I’m so happy that Linda let me share my craft room with y’all!  It was fun hanging out with you today, and I hope that you’ll stop by my blog sometime to hang out with me again.  :)

    That is such a gorgeous room. It looks fantastic. I don’t even know where to start to tell you everything I like about it. My all time favorite is the white hutch and how you have everything organized in it. Then I love the valances. I can’t sew, but I found a plain one that I’ve had for over a year – waiting for me to stencil it. I need your energy or something. GREAT room.

    I love this room! Everything about it. It is amazing how many things she did herself! I really don’t want to paint my craft/hobby room I share with my husband, but I just might have to do it! This room is so inspiring. :)

    Could you come to my house and fix my “crap” room? It’s like trying to fit a 40 lb turkey in a 20lb pan. And I have two rooms. Your room is so pretty and organized. I am jealous. ( I was serious about you fixing my rooms) :-D

    Dani says:

    Holy cow! I love this tour! It is such an inspiration for my dream craft room/office. I love that soooo much of (basically everything!) in her revamped room is something that she put her own special touch on. When I look around my house, the items that I like the most are the ones that I’ve put some work into rather than just buying at a store. Great tour!

    Janet says:

    You give me hope. I have a “before” craft (or should I say crap?) room but as of yet, no “after” because there is no after! Things have gotten moved around, some taken away, more put in there, lots of plastic bins. But the room is open to the living room which is being painted so overflow or things needing to be moved end up there. Maybe some year that will be priority. :-)

    Trixi says:

    oh wow! What a change! It looks nothing like the room did to start with. I really love the fresh, clean look it has now. I would love to have a craft room look like this. I am off to check you your blog now!

    That can’t be the same room—there is no way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Ok, I’ll believe you, but WOW WOW WOW, what a difference! Congratulations, and I hope that you are able to keep it looking beautiful while you still ENJOY crafting. Have fun!!!

    I totally love your craft room. I have been torturing myself looking at everyone’s lovely rooms (as I do not have a spare room in our house at all and just make the place look messy!). I am totally going to use your idea for the chicken wire board – I have been trying to find something to hang my craft items from that gives me maximum capacity and this will be it! Thank you.

    I am an English teacher also and live in the UK, in Yorkshire. I would love to make contact if you wished – my FB page is Kitch Caboodle and my e-mail [email protected]

    Love the colors! And the no clutter, seems every time I start a new project I have to rearrange my whole hobby room which ends up taking half the day. Love my space when I’m done but then don’t have enough time to create anything cause its then dinner time, and all I did was rearrange, and nothing to show for it till the next day. I mostly need shelves, thanks for the inspiration!

    Beth says:

    I love your space! You created a beautiful room! Did you modge podge scrapbook paper to the inside of the back of your large white bookshelf? How did that work out, if so? I would love to do that! :) GREAT work!

    I’m loving on the great use of chicken wire in the lamp shade and poster board. I would have never thought of that.

    Absolutely love the valence fabric! Thanks for showing your before pictures. Makes me feel not so alone lol! Great job on getting this room together! Wish I had my own craft room again.. not with the babies though :-) Maybe this will inspire me to get my craft closets together though in one space :-)

    It’s beautiful, absolutely perfect and you’ve inspired me to start “remodeling” mine. I too bought a bench from a local thrift store like yours but have yet to paint it and recover it. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Vanessa Torres says:

    Wow! I love your room! I was actually looking for a color that would go well with pink! Now I know what to do with my crafty space. Thank you so much for the inspiration!
