My Craft Room

Welcome to my Craft Room!  I am so excited to post these pictures because that means that the state of my craft room right now is clean!

I love that I have a place in my home to retreat and create.  It's not just a place where I come and make things but it's also a place where I keep alot of special things.  A place where you can find pictures, crafts my son makes at school or little trinkets that I find at flea markets.   

My Dad made most of the pieces in here.  I just tell my Dad what I want and he has the plans drawn in his head before we even get off the phone.  He is an amazing craftsman.  

I will explain as I go..please enjoy and send me questions about anything you wish to know more of.


This is the area that I do alot of my work.  I love that I can sit down when I need to, but I find most of the time I like to stand.  This desk holds my cricut, tv and alot of trinkets.  My mother in law helped me put a skirt around the table with curtains found at Hobby Lobby.  All of the black and white damask fabric are 4 curtain panels from Hobby Lobby.  Purchased at 1/2 price each time, it amounted to $40.00. We used every square inch of the fabric too!

Love the table skirt because it covers alot of mess under my desk!
Lamp purchased at TJ Maxx and I just added a bow to it.  I think it adds alot of charm.
My best friend Carrie made this adorable stand.   It's a candlestick and cheese tray!

Found this at an antique store during my recent trip to Arkansas.  Painted it and added some vinyl.


We customized the island so on one side I would have a place to hold my scrapbook paper and the other side holds a bin of wrapping paper.  Remember the bar stools, they fit perfectly on either side.


Purchased these at Michael's.


Found this cute little table at Goodwill for $4.99.  (It needed some work)
  I cleaned it up and painted it turquoise.


This sewing table was my Grandmother's.  I'm happy that I could be able to re-use it.
I think of her every time I sit down to sew.


This is an old window pane I purchased in Warrenton, TX for $5.00.  It's been several places in my home with different sayings but it fit perfectly above my window.  I used binder clips that I spray painted and embellished to hold the curtain.  Again, I used (excuse me, pieced together) the fabric I had and made a valance.  I cut out the word CREATE from some turquoise vinyl I picked up at OH MY CRAFTS.  Literally, this whole window treatment cost less than $15.00.


This is the newest addition to the craft room.  

I plan to cover both of these frames in one of my future posts.  Want to show you what I did.  Less than $30.00 to make both pieces.

These cute little containers are from Lockerlookz

Thank you for taking time to look at this long post and I hope you enjoyed what you saw.  If you have any questions about anything, please feel free to bother me.  I welcome any of your comments!

Have a great day!
