New and Improved Craft Room: Guest

Heather at Straight Stitches has done some great straightening up in her craft room. 

Well she’s done. FIN.ALL.Y!

It was lots of work, but I want to thank Stephen for helping me out with the room and with watching the kids. I am so happy that I have the space cleaned up, personalized and organized. I can now start sewing up all those pillow slipcovers I keep talking about selling. I’ve gotten 2 done….I think I need more than that. 😉

The stripes on the wall are from Oooops paint from Lowe’s and the shelves are not the sturdiest, but they’ll do for now, or until I add clamps to them and secure them to the wall. All in all I think I spent about $150, mostly storage bins and the like for this room.

So without further ado – On to the show!

So this was the original plan. Things changed slightly. I do still want a new sewing table, but I was working with what I had mostly.

The old setup.
View from the door. We attached an over-the-door ironing board to the wall to save on floor space. Steve cut out notches on some left over 2×4 and mounted it on the wall, twice. After I painted it, I put  it back up and then it fell. He fixed it. 

The sewing table will be getting replace with a sawhorse desk. I found luaun doors at Lowe’s that are 24″ x 84″ for $21. Can’t wait to get started on that, but I need to finish some other things first. 🙂 
My pretty-fied computer area. Hopefully I’ll be replacing that original wishblade with a new silhouette soon. 
6 of those bins are patterns. I need to get more bins, because some of them are full. Luckily these were on clearance at Lowe’s for $2.41 a piece. Score! 
I got the idea for the bin labels from a pretty cool life. I love the bit of whimsy it adds. 
I also thought this quote was appropriate over my work desk.
I like this saying. It might be one of my new favorite quotes. Don’t mind the grocery receipt in the corner. 🙂 

Hopefully now I will be more productive and not as antsy feeling in my craft room. I really was getting bugged by the mess. 🙂 

Nice touch with the stripes, I do love them!  How do you like it?  Doesn’t it make you want to start organizing?
