This past year we did a little remodeling in the house. I thought that would be a great time to claim a space. The bonus room had been everything from a TV room to an extra bedroom.. so why not a craft room? I did a lot of research on how to set the room up and store all my
Anyway.. on one side of the room I put all my sewing supplies.. looks neat huh? Not anymore, that didn't last long.. although the storage does keep everything pretty organized.. see my buttons up there?
I can actually tell if I have what I need know.
Don't judge.. I know that is a lot of fabric.. actually there is more now.
This is the old island from the kitchen
I plan on giving it a little "Martha" redo in the near future.. some silver pulls.. and maybe a coat of paint.
This granite counter top is awsome for the glue gun and cutting .. no worries about messing something up.. the glue peels right off the granite when it dries. The chairs work well for me and my granddaughter when we have craft day.. she loves the room.. so do my dear daughters.
The serger table..
Speaking of Martha... that little craft holder turns kind of like a lazy susan.. that is Martha's, from Michaels. With a 1/2 off coupon was a great purchase.
I put the printer on a table that I got at Ikea for only $5 !! I'm telling you.. you can really stretch your dollars there. I have got to hide the hanging plug..it is for a larger long floresent light..you know when you get older you have to have extra light? By the way, the sunlight I get thru this window is great. The computer sits on this desk because my embroidery machine runs off it so it needs to be close to the machine. Do you see my baby's bed under the computer? My little poodle Gidget always joins me when I craft or sew, so I HAD to put a bed in there for her.
I need some window covers and art.. the Graphic Fairy has some good vintage sewing prints... huh?? be thinking. What about the windows?
Here is the craft side.. these bins hold sooo much stuff.. stamp pads, ribbons, fabrics, adhesives, paints..on and on.. so nice to have everything out of site.
The stamps, beadings, and the paper supplies in the shorter storage. The drawers slide out so easy and holds a lot. The stamps fit perfect.. I can see the tops so I know what design I have.. no more digging around hunting for a particular stamp. I know I have a lot of stuff.. but keep in mind...I am old.. I mean, mature. Lots of years to collect.
Thought I would hang some vintage art to go with the spools and threads...something like this from the Graphic Fairy, any other suggestions of places to get graphics .. she is great and hers are free.. I like that price.
I have a lot of old patterns that have lovely art work.. any ideas on using those? You guys are so creative. It's like going to school.. I love it.
I robbed Mom for some of those threads.. I love them because she has had them since I was a kid.. whew.. I meant before I was born.. hee, hee
Thanks for stopping by.. I can't wait to hear your suggestions.
