happy crafting, linda
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…
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.
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.
The hutch in the corner of the room added much needed storage.
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.
I’m sure you saw the window beside the hutch. Did you see the valance I made?
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.
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.
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. :)
Thanks, Bethany! Love the colors you used and the attention to detail. Be sure to show her some love! Check out more Craft Room tours here.
Hi! I'm Linda, the craft addict behind Craftaholics Anonymous®, a craft blog. Crafting is cheaper than therapy, right? When I'm not DIYing something, I can be found taxiing around our 4 crazy kids or working out. Or shoe shopping... because you can never have too many shoes! Happy crafting! ♥
