Craft Room Tour

amanda - ivy cottage blogHey Y’all! This is Amanda at The Ivy Cottage Blog!

I am a wife, mother, crafter, and avid DIYer. I love furniture, vintage finds, chocolate donuts, and glitter. In my spare time, I run a very active wedding decor and design business. Grab a soda, prop up your feet, and be inspired by my Craft Room Reveal!

The craft room started out as a two car garage, transformed into a ceramics studio, and recently made the transition to a full time craft room. It took quite a bit of elbow grease, patience, and planning so I could save some money along the way. I reused, recycled, and got creative with many solutions including buying shelving from a closing store, using mason jars for storage, and even buying clearance commercial grade carpet squares.



Here is a before photo:

    awesome! I hope to do something similar in the future at my house. It may be one of my kid’s room or possibly closing in the carport. :)

    LOVE the craft room—-ESPECIALLY your craft table!! I’ve asked ‘Santa’ to make me a craft table like that for Xmas for me. I told him, I didn’t want anything else (unless he wants to get me other stuff :o) Sooo, my fingers are crossed!! :)

    What DID you replace the garage door with? I would think it would be something that let in lots of of light

    I have wanted to do this for a LONG time. My question is how did you seal off the garage from bugs and critters? I live in a warm southern climate and I am sure I would have to find a way to also cool my garage some how in the summer to keep the humidity down. I just need to find ways on a tight budget. any suggestions?

    Can you tell me where to find the instructions for building the big table with the bookcases? I remember seeing the instructions somewhere forever ago, but now I can’t locate them. I have my bookcases and doors, but I just can’t figure out how to anchor them together. Thanks!
