Craft Room ....During

February 5, 2014

We are moving right along with updates to the craft room. The bulk  of the updates ( hubby stuff) are done and now I am just working on the finishing touches.

Remember the before I shamefully showed you a couple of weeks ago here ....yikes!

Seriously out of control. Here's some of the updates that will ultimately bring the chaos to a manageable level.

We built a wall between my craft room and hubby's office. Since these really serve as room dividers there was no need to insulate the walls. We installed peg board and wainscot on the craft room walls. In the office we installed outdoor siding.... it looks amazing.

We also built a wall coming up the stairs leading into the craft room. Before, I had no walls in the craft room, so coming up with organization solutions were limited. This fixes that and also gives me additional electrical outlets and task lighting.

The entry coming into the space from our garage.

The walls got painted white and the beadboard got a coat of Mindful Grey ( SW) . I had some left over siding, so I applied that to the top wall as you come into the entry. 

My old kitchen table..... turned husbands work desk..... soon to be my craft table, got some new primer and paint over the weekend. With beautiful weather and temps in the 60's, I was able to do this outside.

And since the new rug that I received from Mohawk is driving the 11th hour color palate change in the craft room...... spolier alert, some old counter stools got a dose of berry pink too. In case you love the rug as much as I do, you can check it out here

Oh no. I will be on my berry little way now. I have a lot of explaining to do to Lily, since this rug was originally planned to go into her bedroom.
What's the last 11th hour decorating change you made in your home?
