The CRAFTROOM reveal.....

FINALLY........ I got my pictures uploaded, I'm such a slacker these days! I guess I have an excuse, THREE kids, actually THREE BOYS!!!!

I'm not totally thru, but so close. There are a few other things I want to do in here.

But, here's a few pictures, keep in mind this used to be a deer head room! My husband took this room over when we moved in, and he finally gave it over! HA!!

This cute little shelf here, was a ugly dark brown 70's style bookcase. I knew there was some potential and at the cost of 25.00! I took a little of my Heirloom white spray paint and sprayed the heck out of it. Now a cute shelf for me to keep all my scrapbook supplies in. I hung a mirror I already had and some of my white plates.

This corner table is a antique I picked up at the flea market. It is the perfect size for in here, and is a great space to sew and scrap. The chair is a ladder back with a rush seat, and I gave it a coat of my favorite spray paint too.



Right above the table I have ordered this shelf to hold more of my craft supplies. It is on back order until the 1st of November.



Here's some of the details.....



These curtains I fell in love with, I found them at Tuesday Morning and they were 9.99 a panel. I knew they wouldn't be long enough for my high ceilings, so I added a little burlap to the bottoms. I think they turned out pretty good!



This small side table, I found at a garage sale, 5.00! AND of course sprayed the mess out of it to. I know my neighbors think I'm CRAZY! :)



All my accessories were found at flea markets and garage sales. I paid a whopping 3.00 for the magazine holder!

some cute jars.....

and I think this is my favorite part of the room, pictures I took and framed.

My computer chair sits by my armorie, and it was 3.00 also at a garage sale.

And I have to share this, This morning Charlie Mac was helping me do laundry. It was the sweetest thing ever. I just LOVE him to pieces.

All in all I'm very happy with it in here, and I have my own space to craft in. I feel good that I didn't pay a lot for the things I needed. You really can achieve so much with very little money!

Happy Monday.

What a great space. :) I am envious that you have your own room for creative stuff. I have a hallway in the back of our addition. ;) I LOVE what you did with that bookcase!!! :) I bet you want to spend all of your time in there now. Visiting from Kimba's party. :)

Popped over from Kimba's DIY. You did a wonderful job on your craft room. It looks like a great place to create, be inspired or just relax. Love the curtains with the added burlap. The best thing about it all is you did it on a budget. You found some great finds with your furniture pieces.

Glad I found your blog. We have the same taste when it comes to decorating. May I ask what color paint is in your laundry and family room. Also the name of the plaid fabric on you kitchen window?

This turned out so great! I am running back to my Goodwill right now. I just saw a shelf like that yesterday and thought Hmm... and kept walking. It turned out so cute.

Thanks for sharing!

Your little Charlie is too cute! Love your craft room ~ the shelf and the mirror go so well together. I also love what you did to the drapes to make them longer ~ great idea {they are really pretty, BTW}.

I love it and am completely envious! I have a scrapbooking corner in our dining room-turned-playroom, but I'd love for it to be more. Great job in here!
