Current Inspirations- Craft Rooms!

I never thought I was the kind of person to have a craft room. When we first moved into our house and were trying to think of what we'd  do with the extra rooms, one of my friends suggested should turn one into a craft room. I thought it was a silly idea, I didn't do crafts.  That was until one day I felt like I just HAD to create something. And what started as just gifts for my mom and sister, eventually turned into my etsy shop which led me to really want a cute little craft room. Or at least something better than what I have right now. So I thought I would share a few photos I've collected for inspiration.

I really like the idea of long narrow countertops like this. Plenty of room for doing multiple projects at once!

I love this yellow chair! And that simple desk is perfect.

Sitting in front of a nice big window is definitely a must have!

I love those little storage shelves above the desk.

Love all of these drawers and shelves!

This little craft nook is so adorable!  Probably too small for me though.


And now.. Just for comparison.. A few pictures of my current "craft room".

My desk/thing we put stuff on that doesn't have a place..

My craft supplies. (Note that I have to barricade the closet door so the cats don't get in there and trash it!)


I can't believe the very first pictures of my house I'm showing is of my sad little craft room. I promise the rest of my house is a lot better looking!

  2. Can not wait to see the "after" photos of your craft room. You'll need plenty of counter space for the kitties to stretch out. I Love staring out the window, daydreaming, when I'm sitting in my den/ craft room.

  3. I love seeing pictures of craft rooms! I don't have any spare rooms, but there are plenty of spare spaces to do stuff on, like the kitchen counter and my fiance's old desk. I am drooling over all those shelves, though. I don't feel like enough could be enough! (You've seen Beauty & The Beast, right? The Disney one? Wouldn't you love to have a library like the one in the castle, but with craft and art supplies?)

    1. Well little craft areas are pretty cute too. :) And yes! Beauty and the beast was one of my favorite movies when I was younger! I can't imagine how cool a craft room like that would be! I'd probably never leave. Haha.
