New and Improved Craft Room

Here it is, as promised...a picture of what I have done so far.  I think it is fairly complete, although I could use more storage in the form of shelving.  I mean, who couldn't use more storage?!?!

I'm exhausted, so here are the cliff-notes details...

  • The curtains in the back hide a lot of junk and make me feel like I'm in a more confined space (I like that).
  • The narrow shelves on the concrete block are actually cornices I purchased at at auction.  I spray painted them bright orange and spiced marmalade.
  • The dress form, in the form of a stamp, is extremely trendy right now, and I am fortunate to have the real deal.
  • Working just a bit in the space a few minutes ago, I think I may be standing a lot.  A rug is in order to keep my tootsies warm.
  • Elizabeth told me the ceiling was ugly, but I assured her it was better than the exposed wood, pipe, and electrical wires, covered in yuck.  She admittedly agreed.
  • Embellishing with ribbon is not my forte, so I'm keeping mine tucked down below the desk, inside some antique drawers, in the old train suitcase.  I like old, useful things.  If you're reading this, Tim...Hey ;)
  • What do you think?  I'm hoping there are no unknown leakages of water coming from the floor joists above all of my precious paper.  I've already discovered two leaks.  I'm a gambler, but am taking precautions.

    Goodnight.  It's another big day tomorrow.  I hope to be crafting at least once this week, but spring is here, and the lawn is calling!


  1. I love what you did with that space! You are blessed. Keep creating, your work is amazing.
