The Craft Room- Pt. 2

whew. It was hard keeping up that terrible post from yesterday. But you guys were all so kind about it! I know it was bad... it's ok to agree. hahaha!

I wish these pictures were better, they just don't do the room justice. The lighting in this room just isn't great. You'll get the idea though. :)

Presenting! The new and improved Craft Room!

I know! You can hardly recognize the place! That is the red parasol and mint green wall that were my inspiration.

Here's little Rue Helping us out. Aw. :) Notice how we reupholstered those computer chairs?? So great! I felt like superwoman after. There will be a tutorial on how to do that tomorrow on a friends blog.

There's the computer desk. Once ugly brown laminate- now beautiful, coral and fresh! (and yes, that is our ooooold TV)

That shelf will be hung on that wall (if my mom decides she wants it there of course). I didn't hang it because I don't trust myself with that big of a job...

This photo is the worst. It does not in any way do this sewing table justice. I got this at the DI (utah's goodwill) for pretty cheap and was so excited to replace my mom's old, ugly, cheap, sewing table!

If you need to be reminded of the terrible state this room was in before, just click HERE.

If you like that zebra rug in the corner you can click HERE for my tutorial on how to make your own!

I know the room is super colorful and almost doesn't seem like it works. But trust me, you have to see it in person to get the full affect. It's amazing, if I do say so myself. Haha! Plus, now everything has a place and it's way more organized! Hooray! :D

I had so much help from both my sisters and my grandma. Along with super supportive friends. :) I couldn't have done it without them!

I've been waiting for this moment for a long time! I can't wait to see it in person!

YOU did an awesome job. It all looks gorgeous. That framed ribbon rack needs to go on the green wall. :)

Seriously awesome job you did!!! I really love the cobination of all the colors. A craft space should be bright and fun and if you don't have the right lighting to make it bright, do it with color!! Fabulous!! I bet your mom loves it!

Sarah said...

I forgot to say how cool that zebra office chair is too!

im so jealous! my craft room is in such disarray and now that I'm moving out of my apartment and out to california, i won't have a craft room anymore! i'm scared I will only have a corner of mine and my hubs room, which means i'll actually have to keep it clean since he's a total clean freak!

oh and i like the kitten :) :) :) my cat is all up in my craft business and loves my craft room too!

OMG Gentrilee! A few things

1. Thanks for welcoming me back! You are always the first one to comment when I post and I just wanted to make sure you know I really appreciate it! =)

2. Clearly I am out of the loop because I had not yet seen your blog makeover- it is simply fantastic! I think it fits you so well and I simply die over the cuteness of it all! :D

3. The new craft room is amazing! What a fantastic idea for a present for your mother and I cannot believe the wonders you guys worked! When I have my own place with a craft room, I'll have you decorate it! :)
