Keeping it Simple: My Craft Room REVEAL!

My Craft Room REVEAL!

I am so excited to show you my craft room today!  By far my favorite room in the house.  I just love how it turned out and it’s so awesome to be able to have a room all to myself.  I got to make it super girly and cute and use all the colors that I wanted.  The room before was just ugly, dark and so boring, as you can see in these before pictures.  After a month of working constantly at it and using 5 cans of spray paint, I have a colorful and awesome craft room to go and create in!

So let’s get started on the tour, shall we?  I'll let the pictures do most of the talking :).

One of the first things I did in this room is put in a chandelier for some much needed light!  It was so dark and so hard to see in here before.  And I love it now!
craft room (41)
I am seriously in love with the colors I picked.  I pretty much spray painted everything so everything would match perfectly.  And yes, that’s a tv on my wall.  I could seriously stay in here all day if my kids and husband would let me!  It’s even hooked up to satellite, so I can watch HGTV and sew at the same time.

I decorated my Expedit Shelf and desk from Ikea, with lots of baskets to keep me organized.  I didn't want to over stuff the shelves, so that I didn't look like I am the craft hoarder, even though I really am.

This little cabinet is amazing!  It’s called the MiniBox, but don’t let the name fool you, it’s not mini at all.  It can hold a ton of stuff.   This scrapbox from The Original Scrapbox is to die for.  It’s seriously awesome and the look of it, gorgeous.  I love the bead board finish on the doors!
craft room (7)
But wait until you see the inside of it, it’s crazy awesome! 

Look at all of those shelves and totes.  I was able to fit all of my rolled vinyl and my 12x12 paper in it and still have room for more craft supplies!  On top of that, there are legs that come down from the table top and you can use it for a desk.  I love me some more work space!  craft room (16)
My fabric storage, I’m getting quite the collection.  Each square is separated by color.

I spent hours trying to figure out how I was going to organize everything and make everything look good out in the open.  More on how I created everything for this shelf later.

Decorating this room was one of my favorite things, it really pulled all of the colors together.
craftroom Collage2
I just love these colors together!
craftroom Collage3
And that my friends is my dream craft room!  Everything turned out just like I wanted it to.  I love being in here and being in somewhere that is pretty, it  really helps me want to create so much more.  This room is much better than the corner of the laundry room  I had before, or my boring room that I shared with the guest bed that had a little desk and with no character or style. 

I have a ton of tutorials to show you how I created my craft room, so I hope that you come back and check out how I made everything! 


Let's keep in touch!  



Disclosure: I was given free products from Ikea and The Original Scrapbox to review.  I was not in any way obligated to give a good review.  All opinions, contents and ideas are 100% my own.  BIG THANKS to Ikea and The Original Scrapbox for their awesome products!

Danni Baird @ Silo Hill Farm said...

That is one lovely craft room! How could you not be inspired every time you walked into it? I love it! I finished my craft space, but have yet to paint it and give it any kind of color scheme. This definitely makes me want to use some green in there! Nice job!

Great color combinations and how lucky to get that Mini-box and Ikea furniture for free! I have the same desk in my craft room (had to buy it though!). Thanks for linking to Craftastic Monday at Sew Can Do:)

AMAZING! I'm seriously in craft-room envy. Everything looks so great! I love the little curtains you made for certain shelves as well. Great idea!

Britney {Jesses Girl} said...

WOW! I love this! I had an idea in mind for my craft room, but I might adapt it now with some of your ideas. Thanks!

You're right- this is a dream craft room, you lucky girl! I love it- love the colors, love the chandelier, and I really love that three tiered metal basket thing that your fabrics are in. Awesome job!

Gorgeous craft room, I love everything about it!! I like that you claim to be a craft hoarder- you would never guess- I on the other hand, struggle to hide my problem ;)Thanks for the inspiration!

Gorgeous room, btw!

Boy! Wish Scrapbox would let me have their
product to review. I need one and sure can't
afford to get it on my own.

Merilee Lane said...

Absolutely love it! The colors are so upbeat and creative! You did an awesome job and I can't wait to see the tutorials on how you did things!

Thanks for sharing!

Hi Kaysi ! I am in love with the fabric you used to make the tiny curtains on the cubbies!! Where did you get it? Your color choices are amazing!

April said...

SO beautiful! I love it! I pinned this under my "Spaces That Inspire" board.

Cat Orlando said...

Fantastic color scheme! I too just finished my two room craft trailer. It's such a great feeling of accomplishment to have everything organized. So much fun to walk in and know exactly where to find everything! Enjoy!!!!

Cat Orlando said...

Awesome color choices!!

grammy deed said...

Where did you get the blue three shelf metal cart in your scrap room??? I just love it.

grammy deed said...

Where did you get the three shelf metal cart. I love it especially the color which you probably painted but I would like to purchase one

Kaysi said...

Ikea

freshchick said...

I Absolutely Love This Room,.. You have done an amazing job, its simply stunning, I just wish I had the space in my house to be able to have a room like this, I'm so jealous :) xx

Jen Adkins said...

Please share the name of the wall color you've used! I've been trying to pick a gray for my basement room and my other "colors" are ikea white, damask, and lime. Looks like that gray might be a winner!

Lynn said...

I love your color scheme, so bright and cheerful. The aqua chair and basket holder are to die for! I see why you would love working here!
