Craft room

I have been diligently working on decorating the new house. I have officially finished one whole room! I have partially finished all the rest of the rooms, but my craft room is the only room 100% complete.

Here are the before pictures:

Nick painted the room blue for me, to help with the bright blue carpets. Then he made a large U-shaped desk for me. The desk consists of a place for my machines, two friends to come over and craft with me, and a computer area. There are some shelves for storage above the desk, as well as pegboard to hold all my crafty supplies. Nick also made a cutting table for me using some cabinet bases and plywood. This is the only project not 100% complete, but it is usable so it works. I just need to mount the plywood and cover it in fabric and plexi-glass. We took the closet doors off to make it easy access to my very organized fabric stash. I have over 200 yards of fabric neatly folded and organized my content. Soon I will organize it by color too. I hung a fun polka dot shower curtain to hide it from the sun and most of the dust. I went to Ikea and got some chairs, a stool, window curtain and some other various organization containers. I still have lots of empty containers that just serve as decor right now, but will eventually be full of things, I’m sure! I can’t wait to get to crafty again! So, I sew.

Oh wow, really love your sewing room! It gave me some idea to create my open concept sewing room (since it's attach together with the kitchen...) I like the pegboard concept and all mount to wall concept...looks neat and don't need to have cupboard to put small stuff...Save money :) The fabric stash room is interesting indeed (^.^)
