The tweaking is done…for now. I styled my studio shelves. If your just joining in, you can read about how I made the stair tread shelves here. And, check out the video intro to my studio where I share the purpose of [...]
I really wanted to share a project success today, but not all DIY projects end in success. Some are met with failure and frustration. I am going to tell you what I am struggling with in hopes that if you are experiencing similar setbacks you will know your not alone. And, just maybe, one of [...]
The counter is in. It is my dream come true…a wall to wall workspace!
I had to customize the counter, because my beloved Martha Stewart craft space cabinets are 28″ deep. Standard counter depth is 24″. I knew I wanted a wood-tone planked look. It wasn’t until we started using bamboo [...]
I apologize upfront for the hasty pictures, but I had to let you guys know about the most amazing furniture deal I scored over the weekend. Some of you may be able to take advantage of this deal, too. Please excuse the bare cement floors and debris. My studio is obviously still a work in [...]
I have been collecting great DIY ideas for my new studio space. I think all creative spaces should be personalized and DIY projects are the best way to make a space unique and personal. I have gathered the top DIY ideas for my own studio into a DIY Ideas board. These DIY ideas compliment and [...]
Our finished basement is slowly becoming a reality. I have been holding back strong urges to make a zillion mood boards for every room since we broke ground several months ago. Well, the wait is finally over. Now that we are in the finishing stages, I am allowing myself to start creating mood boards for [...]
No doubt I love blogs and online sources of inspiration, but sometimes it is nice to page through a book. No googling, no scrolling…just a good old fashioned book. Craft and motivational books are my favorites. I either prefer something very visual and informative or an inspiring, motivational, thought provoking read.
In my craft room, [...]
I have been holding on to this hand painted gift bag for over a year since my in-laws returned from a trip to Peru and Columbia. I adore the brown paper gift bag painted in bright colors. I often keep gift bags to re-use, but I could not stand to give this one away.
Although I did a lot of work cleaning up the craft room, the most remarkable change was the box pleat skirt I made to conceal the under counter storage. I got the idea from my recent box pleat crib skirt project. Previously the open space under the counter [...]
In addition to my craft storage at the laundry room sink, I have two pretty shelves for extra storage. These two shelves are on the opposite side of the room and high up out of the kids reach. The top shelf is over 7 ft above the ground. You have [...]
A clean craft room is a happy craft room! I had to take a step back from my nursery project list and from starting on the master bedroom. My craft room was a mess and I was unmotivated to do any projects. The disorganization [...]
Oh how fun it is to have a laundry room large enough to warrant curtains drapes (doesn’t drapes sound more formal than curtains?). Yes, I know how lucky I am. My laundry room is actually a multi-purpose room used for laundry, crafts, sewing, and as a kids art room. The room was definitely [...]
Our home is blessed with a giant laundry room, a.k.a. mom cave, on the main floor just off the mudroom. Even though it is primarily a laundry room, I felt it deserved it’s own mood board. The “laundry room” is actually turning out to be the most multi-functional room in our house. The [...]
