I have finally set up a craft room in my basement! I am so excited to share my design studio space with you. If you know me well, then you know with four boys, a husband and a boy dog, my house has ended up pretty masculine. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE it that way, but with this space just for me, I added some bright fun colors including pink and turquoise and a more feminine touch. Here is my creative craft room organization station:
I have a huge old table with a large leaf. It holds two paper sorters with scrapbook supplies.
I LOVE this giant chalkboard I picked up at ReStore for $15! Just below it is my fab Pffaf sewing machine sitting on a thrift store desk with bamboo detail that I painted white. I added a shelf and wrapped it in one of my all time favorite fabrics, pink paisley.
An alcove by the door holds painting supplies, fabric scraps, tools and crafting aprons.
This shelf used to be in my mud room (until I found lockers) and it now holds random design supplies.
Here is another closeup of those awesome vintage school house chairs in pastels. You might recognize them from a previous post (find out how I bought them for $2 each HERE). The colors are perfection for the space, don’t you think?
I made a pennant banner from leftover scraps of my favorite fabrics and hung it on one wall. Don’t you love the dog and cake picture? Thanks Mom. And thanks to my mother in law for the drafting table. It is adjustable and great for sketching out new designs, plus the color is pretty great in here.
And if you are going to get down to some serious crafting or designing, there has to be good music. I took a nice computer speaker set (with a sweet sub) and plug it into my phone and turn on Pandora. I prefer to rock out to Jason Mraz and John Mayer.
One great thing about this space is the 6′X5′ south facing window. 3/4ths of it is in a window well, but the lighting is spectacular.
I have a feeling I’m going to get a lot done in this space!
