My Craft Room Reveal!

Well, it is pretty much done... pretty much.
I could wait to post pictures until it is completely done but lets be honest that probably won't be for several more months. We are burnt out!
So, here is a reminder of the
BEFORE:
And some shots of the
DURING:


And finally the

AFTER:








We still have hardware to install and I need to finish organizing the peg board (which I LOVE) and add the trim to the bottom of the cabinets.
But, you get the idea. :)

So fun to see my vision come to life...
Makes my heart skip a beat!
(I post details and how-tos soon)

Holy Cow - looks amazing. Love the colors you choose and the countertop space has got to be to die for. You've been working hard. Great job.

I love the aqua and the red together! How exciting to have your own craft space where you can leave things out. Very cool!!

Peppermint Plum said...

Mimi@blueroofcabin said...

Gorgeous craft room. Love the colors and the cabinets will be so functional. What a great space to create! I am very jealous! I just love looking at peoples craft rooms.

Chris said...

You have no idea how many questions I have about this project! I've been looking to use kitchen cabinets in my craft room for months (the price has scared me away), but I LOVE how you made the giant desk with them. I can't wait to hear the details. It's so adorable! LOVE LOVE the wall color!

Kara said...

I'm jealous. I would love to have a room like this.

kara@elements-interiors.net said...

Oh what I wouldn't do to have a craft room like yours - very awesome!!!

Natalie said...

I love it! Really love the color. I hope you'll post the how-to on your peg board. And where did you find the gigantic K?! I'm doing an ABC wall in our play room and would love to find something that big!
Good job.

Sweeter Hours said...

So lovely! Very nice job. Isn't great to have your own space?

Rachel said...

Love, love, love! I'm jealous. Thanks for giving me some good ideas, though, bookmarking your pictures!

Katie @ Hippos and Dinosaurs said...

Crisp and bright and fresh! LOVE!!

Amy said...

I love the pale blue and the pop of red! So pretty. Very well done :)

~april said...

what a happy little (well, HUGE compared to mine) place to create. i love the color combo and the simple and clean look!

feltsocute said...

OK, I can't decide what i like best - the two separate work stations so you don't have to clear your sewing machine to go work at the other chair - or the big counter to spread out a huge project and leave it. LOVE it all!

Rachel said...

LOVE the baby blue walls with all the vibrant accents in the room, especially the red frame! Beautiful!

Marci @ All Things Wonderful said...

Hi! I just stopped by from Tater Tots & Jello. Love your space. The "K" is ADORABLE!

Jenny said...

This is GREAT! I adore the wrapping station you put together and have been thinking about adding something like that to my Mom-Cave-In-Progress. I need a close up of that beauty! Also love the big "k" on the wall - so striking and vibrant. Well done! Looks like a room that will get a lot of use!

stefanie.ann said...

Hey i LOVE it! I was wondering, what accessories did you use for the pegboard to hang the wrapping paper? could it also be used to hang ribbon?

also, are those just built-in cabinets from homedepot? i love them!

Becky said...

I love this! I was so inspired I just went out and bought pegboard for my craft room. Love it. Thanks!

Lindsay said...

I'm taking the plunge and making my babies SHARE A ROOM :::GASP::: so that I can have my own craft room....and yours is my favorite one I've seen so far!!

Jennifer said...

Great space! I'm in the middle of doing my craft room and am looking for inspiration. I'm hosting a link party to feature any ideas I get from others. I'd love for you to link up!

Hi,

I am a writer for iVillage.com. I'm working with craft bloggers on a slideshow for iVillage.com called "Craft Bloggers: 20 Creative Studios." It would be inspirational and fun for our readers to get a behind-the-scenes look at your work area/craft studio/desk. Would you be interested in contributing an picture of your workspace along with a brief description? I would be happy to credit you and link back to your blog from the slideshow. Here's what I would need from you:

A Photo of Your Craft Studio
We like to have images that are 1024 x 768 but at the smallest they can be 636 x 477. We need to avoid a watermark if possible.

Text
The following type of text:
A description of the workspace: blogger describes the workspace in 1 (brief) paragraph.
DIY or get it now: Is there an item in your workspace that keeps you organized or inspired? Tell readers where they can buy it or how they can make it at home.

I would need both the photo and text by Sunday, July 22nd.
Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!
