Enter my space that inspires me to create, dream & explore new ideas and give life to old items.
Overview: My room was built by yours truly. As a result I could choose to install laminate vs carpet; and have plugs at counter height as well as on the floor. This has to be my most expensive room in the house as it is well furnished by our swedish friends at IKEA and very little “makeshift” items. The room is a whopping 6’9” x 10’; not including the loss of space from the angled wall. And I love it!
Decor & Inspiration:
In this room, I can be a kid again. I had a bunch of old slate chalkboards & wooden frames from an event a long time ago – I put words down that inspire me – and I can change these up whenever I want! I painted the frames blue (my favorite!) and added pictures of special memories!
I had someone tell me once, “You should make a brag book! A portfolio of crafting.” I came across a digital photo frame last year & decided to make a “brag frame”. Looking at what I’ve achieved, and how far I’ve come – always inspires me to create!
The masterpiece. I found this beautiful large frame at HomeSense, with a picture of gambling inside. As a result; it was on clearance for $7.00. What a steal! The photo that now graces this beautiful frame is one I took on my husband & I’s first date. (He took me up north, on a tour of a spectacular island only accessible by boat — oh the days of early romancing!)
- bedroom dressers
- laundry hamper; stored bolts of fabric and large material.
- flip style scrapbook paper (below my photo in the main overview picture)
- gift wrap rolls
- gift bags
- card storage
- fabric storage
- undercabinet lights are so essential. I had cabinet lights above my sewing table, and this saved my eyes repeatedly!
This room is a space away from everything that I can keep projects open and on-the-go; no dining room clean-up necessary. I can abandon projects for a few hours, or a few days without the space being disturbed. And of course, it’s never as clean as seen in these pictures! No crafting gets done without a bit of mess!
