My daughter got married and moved out of her room. I always loved it, it has a north and east window and is always bright. I jumped at the chance to use it as a craft room. And so started the 2 year evolution of my studio!
I have only one full wall in the room,and two metro shelves that were too high. I almost bought some new shelves, but didn't really want to spend that much money. So I finally asked the key question, do they make shorter poles??? YES!!! the metros came out of the closet. I also found some nice looking and practical boxes to separate my fabrics, and actually fit on the shelves. WooHoo! Now we are getting some were! As I started arranging the room, I looked at the walls that were painted years ago. They looked like someone took a machine gun to them!!! I've never been shy about nailing holes into the walls! I needed a neutral color, so my daughter suggested I look at one of her favorite blogs The Inspired Room . She discovered a color from Behr paints called Studio Taupe. Perfect!
While there will always be some tweaking, I think this room is finally ready for some serious creations! I really am blessed to have such a great space, truly done on a dime (or two). What a great way to start the new year!!!
|metro shelves are great, but too tall and overwhelmed the room|
|So I moved the metro into the closet and ended up with a mess, as I collected more fabric and paper crafts.|
|It's time to Purge!!!|
|The lowered metro shelves left space above for some art (mostly my daughter's). I painted the old door, used as a work table, with a faux granite finish Tutorial here|
|Wire strung across the window to display some favorite things. I love the view!!|
