I finally broke down and decided to do something with that room I so call my "craft room"! It was once my youngest son, Justin's room. Well, I (and my family) got tired of my crafts being scattered around the WHOLE house (bet a few of you can relate). So I finally decided SOMETHING had to be done!! I mean...when was the last time my family sat at the dinner table for a nice relaxing, conversation filled meal? Well, I DID clean it off for Christmas! But by the next day...!!
At one point my living room served as my shipping headquarters, my dining room was my sewing area. One long kitchen counter was my staining and painting station and my kitchen table was my tracing and cutting area. Not to mention where all my supplies were!!! PAAALEEEEZE!!! So back before Christmas I decided it was time to boot my daughter, Katie, out of her bedroom. I mean the girl's at college, has her own bedroom up there, makes it home maybe once a month. Come on...that nice big bedroom was just going to waste! So I moved Justin in there, along with his little pool/ping pong/foosball table that once graced the middle of our loft!! And I moved all my craft STUFF up to his old room. Of course I had to keep a bed in there for when Katie came home from college. Now, keep in mind it was right before Christmas (not like I had anything ELSE I needed to do). So things "kinda" got THROWN in there. Of course I had to leave a pathway for Katie to sleep in there while she was home for Christmas break. Okay brace yourselves! This is what it looked like before Christmas! Needless to say, not a lot of crafting got done up there. Well, I've spent the last week working up there and it's starting to take shape. These are my BEFORE pictures. (I can't believe I'm doing this!) Stay tuned for my AFTER pictures!
So, how many of you are saying right now "Gee, I don't feel so bad about my own craft room!" LOL
