Craft Room Make-over {Part 2}


Since I left off on this topic a few weeks ago, here’s a recap of my progress thus far.

  • The room is as big a mess as ever. Possibly a bigger mess than ever.
  • Instead of getting rid of stuff I probably won’t use, I’ve been on a buying spree of “things that could come in handy for something… eventually.”
  • The list of things I need to buy is ever-growing, while my account balance is ever-dwendling.
  • I have been cheaper thriftier than ever with accessories and supplies for my finished room.
    • C-R-E-A-T-E letters from Michael’s: $1 each, decoupaged with old pages from a thesaurus. ❤
    • Empty frames to use as some type of message/photo board: free from Mom { If you don’t take it, it’s going in the trash. }
    • Cross-stitch circles to go with the frames: $0.49 at Goodwill
    • Two gallons of yellow paint: free from my sister who decided she didn’t want it anymore.
    • Floor pillows: free from my other sister, then I re-covered one with a quilt top from Goodwill { $3-ish }
    • Splatter paint table: stool base picked up from side of the road, wooden shelf from Mom, Black & White spray paint, various acrylic paints, screws. ❤
    • Painting supplies { tape, brushes, rollers, etc. } all free from my sister
  • I’m taking baby steps toward organizing my junk supplies in a way that would let me cram store things in my closet until I can get the room painted & move stuff where I want it { for now, as I have a tendancy to re-arrange frequently }
  • I have a pretty clear idea of how I want the room laid out so that it will be the best usable space for my work.

And my biggest accomplishment thus far…

  • I put a latch on the door so that certain toddler hands will not find their way into my things, and leave them from one end of the room to another. { I’m still finding rubber stamps }

I was going to try to be creative with my photo placement, but it’s a bigger hassle than I’m up for right now. So, here you go. Crafty montage.

I love beautiful things, and sometimes have a really different take on what's beautiful. I have a wonderful (albeit stressful) life that I wouldn't trade for anything in the world. Some days I want to pull the covers over my head and stay indefinitely, but other days I want to jump up and find something amazing to see/ do/ make. I want to share the things I am passionate about with other passionate people. And so it begins...
