Hey y’all…I must admit, most of the time when I come up with a new room design or decor idea I am very reactionary. You know what I mean? Like, I’m suddenly smacked on the forehead with inspiration and I’m dreaming up a new room change. Never mind the fact that I wasn’t even thinking of a room re-do. Inspiration can strike me anywhere at anytime. A piece of fabric, a photo in a magazine, a pretty window display…or this paint color.
Now, I know everyone can’t appreciate this glorious bright hue – but it spoke to me. I don’t know if it was because at the time there was snow on the ground and I needed a bit of Spring to liven up my life or that it was just because I instantly loved the color. Y’all know most of my house is in shades of neutral colors with a smattering a colored accents. So I know this bright green is out of character for me but I knew it would be perfect to create a colorful craft room.
This room was previously a small spare bedroom and I unfortunately don’t have a “before” photo. The room was painted in dark beige and decorated in a Shabby Chic style.
For me, this color brought life to the room and to my creativity. I work at this beautiful antique drafting table. It’s all the more special to me as it was a Christmas gift from Jennifer several years ago.
I hand painted this harlequin pattern on the top that my dear friend Lisa taught me how to do. I feel the bold black and white patterns anchor the room. The graphic curtains were a bargain of a deal – they are tablecloths from HomeGoods at $8.00 each. I always have budget in mind when I’m decorating.
I just love how well made the table is – industrial and fashionable.
You knew I would have a bit of bee inspiration too…
I’ve been very fortunate to travel a bit. Each trip I have happened upon a landmark, sign or building with my name on it. I snap a photo and hang it on my cork board for inspiration.
This is an antique silver toast holder that I use for my file folders. And can you imagine using this for toast?
This vintage paper roll holder was a flea market bargain at $5.00…with the paper!
This wall art was also a deal, found on clearance at TJMaxx.
My craft room is a happy place where I dream up new ideas with sewing, arts and crafts. If you need me…you know where to find me 🙂
