My New Crafts Room
 
6 Attachment(s)
First of all, thank you all for all your ideas and suggestions on what might work in my crafts room. However, after much debating on this, I went with shelving instead of cabinets. The reason for this change was not only the cost, but mostly I love the openess.

I'm almost finished with the closet situation or will be once I get my new desk. I was hoping today, but it looks like rain.

DR,
Turned out nice. Gives me some ideas. Both of our sons are moving out shortly, one to be on his own, the other back to school in August. I have to leave on bedroom intact, but the other my wife wants a craft room similar to what you have. Good job,
Mike Hawkins:)

Thanks Mike! But, I give my husband (the Boss) most of the credit. I did all the organizing. He said he would rather paint and install than help me organize it. :laughing:

He is pretty proud of it too actually.

I realize this isn't a major overhaul. I think my backyard was much more work than this room! :laughing: However, it's my "baby" -----more "Gbaby" since I don't have any! Still pretty glad it's done so I can do what I love....and that's creating! Now that I have my palette, now I can start working! :yes:

Here is the closet where my computer....soon to be stero and tv. I'm pretty sure I'm going to remove the doors. They are in the way.

The last pic is just one of my art pieces.

OMG! I LOVE this! Coming from YOU it's a HUGE compliment Coco!!! The Boss and I would LOVE to come up there and meet you and the misses!

Holy cow....I'm so beside myself! :laughing: I'm so honored to have you visit my small room! You realize I'm cracking up, right? Too funny!

Please tell your wife, I think we have alot in common! Ask her HOW she gets her way please! :laughing:

As I posted, I only read 10 pages, I see that she is your helper and she imports her art, ask her how it feels to be a "glorified" grunt? :laughing:

I take it that you are making use of your new art emporium. Do you have any new work to show us yet?

WHOA! I guess I need to check my OWN threads, eh? :laughing:

Yes, but not any artwork, but a few crafts. I have been busy "building" things, it's true. My husband says this, "What are you building now dear?" :laughing:

I've made three tops for work, a ragbag purse(made out of the husband's old jeans), altered an old victorian lamp(no pics yet of it), a teeny tiny patriotic bear(out of my old jeans0, altoid tin project, crocheted afghan, and a few gift bags. I tend to do all sorts of crafts and I'm a master of NONE! :laughing: Speaking of changing course in "mid-stream" I do that on a regular basis! Heh.

Here are the pics Coco:

Those two small tins are something else...I don't think I've seen anything like that before. Really neat. :thumbup:

So you crochet I see.

My grandma tried to teach me to crochet when I was about 6. That didn't work too well, so she taught me to knit instead. All the afghans I've ever made have been knitted.

That one in your pic is really gorgeous...I just love those things! :thumbsup:
