I’ve been meaning to show you my new craft room all year! We decorated and bought the furniture back in the Spring, and I even took photos back then. Anyway, without further ado, here it is.
It’s nearly 2 years since our son moved out to live in his own flat, so of course I purloined his room as my craft room! It is so nice not to have the dining room cluttered. It is easy to clear up now if someone is coming for dinner. Here’s what the dining room used to look like, with craft stuff piled up in all 4 corners of the room:
I still sew on the dining room table, but most of my craft stuff is now upstairs, either in my craft room or on the big Ikea unit on the landing.
We decorated the spare room , after having some plastering done on the chimney breast wall. We painted the walls white, and bought white furniture from Ikea.
Here’s my work desk, joined on to 2 4x2 Kallax units. I am not sure that I really have them organised the best for scrapbooking, but it is nice having everything within reach! The first column of cubbies house my Etsy shop patterns and other goods for sale. The curtains are from Next.
The gorgeous picture on the wall is from an Etsy shop. My daughter bought it for me for Christmas. (Sorry I can’t find the link to the actual shop now)
In the corner recess I have shelves for books and sewing patterns, and my chrome trolley. You will laugh, when I tell you that when I bought this trolley, this was all the scrapbook stash I had, and intended to have for the future!
Further round (so behind me when I sit at my desk, are the plastic drawers from the dining room, and shelves above. I sorted my large collection of old (I hesitate to call them vintage!) buttons into colours for display on the top shelf. I intended this worktop to be where I used my cricut machine and bind-it-all etc, but I really haven’t used them since I moved up here.
I hope you’ve enjoyed a tour around my room! I love sitting up there doing my scrapbooking. I will be back soon to show what I have been scrapbooking lately.
Sorry about the formatting, live writer and blogger are really not playing ball this morning!
