Finally My Dream Has Come True

I wasn't going to post about my craft room until it was all finished but............


1. The trim around the window needs to be finished...

2. I don't know when hubby will get around to it (he has been working a lot of overtime lately)...

3. I wanted to make curtains to put up, but...

4. My sewing machine died...

5. I can't afford a new sewing machine because the refrigerator in our travel trailer went out and if we want to go on any sort of vacation this summer it needs to be replaced (at about $1,400.00).

Sooooooooooooo, to make a long story short, who needs curtains and trim up to craft anyway?
Poor naked window!
It will have to wait, cause
I can't wait any longer to get back to crafting.
{patience was never my strong suit}

WELCOME TO MY CRAFT ROOM








This is looking from the far side of the room back to the doors.

The view of the other side


The view from the door.


My little music corner. Gotta have some tunes or talk radio going to keep me company.



My work area for doing the vinyl lettering



This is the work table/rolling cart that my son made me. LOVE IT!





Storage baskets in the work table. These make a wonderful place to store things like ribbon. Ahhhhh, ribbon.






More ribbon.








And still more ribbon. I get a giddy feeling just seeing all that ribbon lined up.



I bought this cute ribbon/craft shelf at Michael's.

(Yes, more ribbon.)


More beautiful shelves to fill up.


Jars full of ribbon pieces.



(I know, I know, I have a serious addiction to ribbon. It's a sickness I tell ya.)







These are the shelf units I use for displays at the bazaar/craft show. They make a great place to store stuff in the mean time.
I store flowers in these jars.

Stuff! But necessary crafting STUFF.



Tools and embellishment storage.Office supplies.
Where I store my vinyl.


The work station where it all begins.
The printer and a storage cabinet full of scrapbook paper.


{Can you ever have too much scrapbook paper?}


The 'storage' armoire. This used to be what we had our television in. It makes a great place to store finished bazaar items in. Some of the finished items for the bazaar/craft show. I hope to have this bulging by November with finished crafts.

Lots of places for storing materials in this armoire.

So there you have it.
Do you want to come over and play sometime?
The End.

I would certainly like a chance to play (and mess up) your beautiful room...so much space to create!

As for my Black and White checks, yes I always use a sharpie. Here was the tutorial I posted a few weeks ago:

WONDERFUL!!!! My dream is to have a huge space like this also. I have a plan & figure in about 5 years, I can talk hubby into letting build-out over our garage.

CONGRATS!

What a great craft room! It is great, I love all of your storage and how well organized it is. I love the black and white polka dots in the back of the shelves.

I enjoy gettin gto peek in on craft rooms. I find it so interesting to see what others use. Can I borrow your son? That is a wonderful work space. You are very blessed!

The Autocrat: Haley said...

Very very nice!!! Love the rolling cart! Also, love the fact that you have a "desk computer area" separate from the crafting area. Looks good even if it isn't 100% finished.

Wow... what an awesome craft room... you are super lucky to have such a well lite room! Enjoy my friend... you deserve it! Huggies! Vicki

Rebecca said...

Visiting from Org Junkie - your room looks fabulous! I love that your son made the rolling table for you - looks like one I've seen on knock off wood (great site for diy btw). Without curtains the room is great but if you do want to throw some up anyway check out The Nester for a how to without a sewing machine. I would suggest a ribbon addicts support group except I am totally jealous of your collection. Happy crafting!

Lori said...

Thanks for joining Get Your Craft on Thursday at Life As Lori. Please join me next week for another great party.

OMG! I love your room...the floors, the cart, the goodies! Try checking out the thrift store, goodwill or garage sales for drapes, sheets or other items you could repurpose into window treatments! Thanks for sharing, LOVE your blog!

Shonda said...

I'm drooling!! And so jealous - I wish we had space for a craft room. I don't think boxes in the garage qualify as a craft room!! Maybe someday, and I will be looking to yours for inspiration! Congratulations and happy crafting!
