Oh finally! It is done. And I am so ready to show it off! It is clean, perfectly staged, and will probably never look like this again. Ha! All you other artists and crafters know how that goes. To get started, let’s have a little reminder of what it looked like before.
Here is that same view of what it looks like now.
It is such a change!
I have basically created 3 “stations”.
This long counter is my paper crafting area. Behind the curtains hide my papers, paints, embellishments, glue. etc. It is a bar counter height. I wanted it taller to increase the storage underneath.
This smaller nook is my sewing area. I have my fabric and notions in the cabinets below. I painted a corkboard white to hang inspiration and random supplies on. Painting it white makes it a nice neutral back drop for fabrics, notes, or whatever else.
This long desk is my jewelry area and my office. All of my jewelry making stuff is in the left cabinet. The other two cabinets house stationary and office supplies.
Above the jewelry area, I have another painted cork board to hang finished jewelry on. I wanted some place to hang my work that looked like art and not totally utilitarian. Pretty and functional.
I love the wall above my long desk. I wanted a statement wall that was also useful and inspirational. The middle is a chalkboard, I have my jewelry display, and I incorporated family photos that make me happy. I think it turned out great. Plus, it was cheap. A lot of the frames I had already, and I just spray painted everything the same shade of white.
I also added a small organizational area. I hung four clipboards on the wall with detachable velcro strips. I can take the boards on or off to use and write on as I need. The table below is just an old table that I made a cover for. There is a shelf under that table where I store all my chargers and ugly cords.
I have so many pretty, girly touches in the room that make it mine. I have my Olzewski Disney light box collection, my collection of vintage Disney Little Golden Books, glass door knobs, owls and birds here and there, and so many other things that inspire me and make me happy.
