Craft Room Remodel (slightly pic heavy)

My husband & I recently moved from a two bedroom house into a four bedroom.  Because we don't have any babies yet, I got a bedroom all to myself to use as a craft room.  Before:  it was ugly.  Now, it is pretty!

I started out painting it "Colonial Yellow".  Before it was this ugly mauvy brown.  I kept the ivory cabinet I scored off of Craigslist for $30.  To the right, my Cricut is setting on an old sewing machine cabinet that I picked up at a garage sale for $5 or so.  It's spray painted pink (to match my KitchenAid mixer.... even though that's in the kitchen.)


Here is my craft desk.  Not much renovation, but it is completely organized.  That thing was a hot mess before this remodel.  Above it hangs a framed pink pegboard that my husband and I made OURSELVES!  We were feeling so DIY at the Home Depot, sawing away at the trim.  This is perfect because it's so cute and shabby chic, yet is perfect for hanging up all of my tools!  There's even room to expand....


Here's just a close up of the pegboard:


This is my sewing/order packing corner.  I bought the sewing cabinet at an auction for about $8 and picked up the vintage seafoam green metal shelf at a flea market for $5.  The shelf is repurposed from a vintage printer block tray.  I bought baby blue brackets at Ikea for $1 each, screwed them onto the tray, and attached it to the wall.


I use it to organize my beads, charms, and findings:


I got the idea to combine small bulletin boards from Dollar Tree into one big bulletin board from Dollar Store Crafts.  I think it's cute, but I probably wouldn't do it again.  It was a big hassle to save a few bucks.


I purchased this cute light fixture from Target for about $20 on clearance.  I just love it! 


I bought this rug forever ago at Urban Outfitters for $10.  Moses just loves it.... it looks like grass!

  12. Hapa Girls,

    It won't stay this clean for long! I definitely should have taken a "before" picture... but that would have scared everyone away!

    Thank you for all of the sweet comments everyone!
