Above: I love these glass canisters. I bought them from Walmart and spray painted the tops. The large tin can was spray painted too. It holds all of my pipe cleaners. Little jars are perfect for holding nails, tiny pom poms and other tiny stuff. I also spray painted the lids: yellow, red and aqua. The little pom pom birds hold a banner that reads "craft room". I got the instructions from Elizabeth at Creative Breathing. On the right, the sweet little planter was my Grandma Marcinak's, we called her Mama. It always was sitting on her front porch with a plant in it. The lamp needs a painting and the shade needs updating. A future project....
Above: My sewing area. The cabinet pulls were white, I painted them red. My sewing machines, computer and TV are over on this side of the room. I plan on redoing the table tops soon and make some table skirts.
Above: You can't really tell it, but I spray painted the spool holder yellow.
Above: My serger and daughter's sewing machine. Inspiration board needs some sprucing!
Above: Plain little bamboo cubbies that I painted. The white one looks crooked, but it's not, guess it's the angle of the camera.
Above: The Littles. I loved playing with these when I was little. Some of these I had as a child and some I have found in antique stores. Finally, a place to display them.
Above: I plan on painting this shelf later. Probably white.
Above: fun little shelves. This book shelf is by the window. Most of the crochet stuff I did.
Above: The geese were MaMa Marcinak's. She kept them on the dishwasher. I believe she kept a plant in them. Not sure. I will have to ask mom. Some Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books.
Above: My dollhouse. My dad made me this when I was 3 or 4. It is made out of an old Army trunk. It has been painted light green, pink, yellow and now white. It is a work in progress. I need to add some furniture and dolls. The furniture in the top left room were given to me be by one of my Grandmother Ashley's friends. There is a stove, sink and table. The have been traveling with me for 20 years and I have been very careful not to loose them. I have always appreciated the fine workmanship and details that went into these little pieces. I will have to get some closer pictures for you to show the detail.
Above: Yes, I do wear my slippers in the craft room. Keep my feet warm :)
Above: I would like to get some floor to ceiling shelves in this corner. The doorway is to the right of these book shelves.
Above: Here is how I like to organize my WIP (works in progress). Unused pizza boxes. Very inexpensive storage. I think 50 white pizza boxes was $15 or so. I bought them off ebay. Shipping was free. I love it!! So organized!!
Above: The yarn station. One of these days all of my skeins will become balls.
Thanks for stopping by and as I make improvements and change things around, I will post pics. Maybe, just maybe someday I will show you my closet :)
