{home} office // craft room

Living in a 3 bedroom house with 4 of us, I thought that my days of crafting and sewing were done. Or I was just going to have to squeeze into a little unused corner and set up a make-shift crafting spot. But being that my Hubs is amazing, said that I could take the 3rd bedroom for me. But what about the kids, right?? Well they share their room, for the time being at least. I am sure the day will come when I will get kicked out of the room so my child can claim it for their own space. But until that day happens, it's My Place!
Initially, it was just going to be my craft room, but it has since become an office, craft room, and also a playroom. I was tired of toys pilling up in the living room, they needed a home to stay while not being played with. When we first moved in, we found this AWESOME hutch on Craigslist for a steal! It was perfect, fold down table, plenty of shelving and completely closed up when not being used. But I seemed to have out grown it, and it just wasn't working for me, so I sent it to live with my mother so she could love it as much as I did.
Now we are in the midst of redoing the room. I made a this little inspiration board with all the ideas I have come up with so far!
Office/Craft Room Mood Board

  • My Hubby is going to build me a wood desk that runs the length of one wall. I am so excited to have a nice big work area. There will be enough room for my sewing machining, all my jewelry making trinkets, and a spot that I can use for blogging {I am using the kitchen counter right now}
  • We actually already have this rug in the room, I love that it's not super fancy floral. But it's still fun and the colors are just right!
  • I am obsessed with the old vintage mason jars. I am hoping to collect quite a few and use them as some fun storage; house my growing washi tape family!
  • Also bring in some fun clear containers and baskets for storing other things, all the jewelry things, and sewing items I have.
  • I didn't think I wanted a chair like this. Well I did, but finding one at the right price was such a mission that I decided I would just get a rinky-dink chair and settle with it. That was until a friend posted on Facebook that she was selling an amazing antique office chair for such an AMAZING price, and I am so glad I was able to take it off her hands!
  • Now that I will just have a desk, I am going to need somewhere to store all my stuff {which at the moments stored away in many giant containers} So the Hubs is going to make some of these metal pipe shelves to go above the desk. It will be perfect to keep everything out of reach of little hands! 
  • I will decorate with fun accents through out to and some fun to the room; I also have a giant chalkboard in there right now which is a perfect note taker when ideas pop in my head.
  • And then I found this great idea on Pinterest {Original Source} to use one of those pull down-retractable window shades for a photo backdrop. Perfect for when I am shoot something for the blog or for when I finally get back into listing my jewelry!
There it is. I am so excited to get this finished...This being in limbo has me a little crazy cause my house looks like one box away from an episode of Hoarders! I am so looking forward to settling in there when it's finished and let the creativity flow!


  1. I like how you wrote (typed) out the details that you wanted to do. I need to do that now with all of my different inspiration rooms. P.S. How's this whole comment widget working out for you now?

  2. I figure just in case I forget why I wanted what ever it is... LOL It is working just dandy now! Thank you!

  3. Wow! Your future space sounds really cool and I can't wait to see it!

  4. Love that antique chair! LOVE! Can't wait to see the finished room!

  5. I love the desk! I actually want a dinning room table like that lol

  6. I think the chair makes the room now! I am so stoked on it!

  7. That would make an awesome table! My mom gave us the idea to make the desk out of railroad ties, you could totally make your dining room table too! It would look so awesome!

  8. That would be awesome! First I need some power tools lol

  9. I should commend you for this office storage inspiration post. Who says you can't be creative with storage spaces? Thanks for these wonderful ideas!
