Hello everyone! Since starting my blog I wanted to share my craft room with you but have to admit I knew it would take some time gathering everything to create my posts but I finally decided there is no time like the present. I created my craft room about two years ago so a few things have changed. This is the first of a few posts I will share with you taking you through construction to the finished room. Without further ado here we go.
Before creating my room I did a lot of research trying to determine the layout of my room from selecting colors, how to organize, and the most important part my workspace. I knew I wanted the colors to be bright and fun so when I found something the color I wanted I had the paint mixed to match. Then it was time to invite my friend Jennifer over and get started painting with my favorite color - turquoise. Once each wall was done I stenciled around the top of the room using a really cute flourish stencil – I wish I would have counted every time I went up and down that ladder.
After Jennifer and I finished painting the room it was time to call in the guys to start building the desk. I knew the biggest expense in the room would be my desk and I wanted something that would give me a lot of storage, fit my room and not break the bank. My surfing the web paid off as I found a great desk design with lots of storage. You can find great instructions and design layout for creating the desk at Jannypie. The best part, I was able to modify the layout to make the desk bigger giving me more workspace and storage. My husband and my Dad did a great job of customizing the plans I had found and spent a lot of time making it just right.
Once they were finished it was time to break out the paint brushes to primer and paint the desk – this took a while and I was really tired of painting by the time I was finished. After the painting was finally done I hung my curtain and placed the desk in the corner.
The room was starting to come together – next week I will share some of my projects to get organized.
