Dining Room Turned Black and White Craft Room

A friend of mine had a dining room space that she didn't use much, so she converted it into a stunning black and white craft room! She added French doors to close off her space from the living room and added a large sewing table, a really cool vintage card catalog for storage, a desk and beautiful black and white accents. I am trying to figure out what do do with my home's living room (which only holds two toy chests and a piano), but I am not sure I could be this bold! My home has the same layout as hers -- a combo living room/dining room is the first room to be entered in the home. (Except her space is slightly larger than mine.)
Difficulty: Moderate
  • The finished craft room -- gorgeous!
  • Another photo of the finished space
  • Card catalog used as storage in a craft room
  • Cool sewing-related accents for the craft room
  • A closeup of my friend's card catalog. (With her own craft labels.)
  • Card catalog craft storage
  • The large crafting/sewing table in my friend's new craft room
  • The desk (and new French doors) in my friend's awesome new craft room
  • Craft room collage (showing the the before and after and how she uses her card catalog for storage of craft supplies)
  • New molding and shelving in the craft room
  • My friend's craft room, before the transformation!

    Where can I find a card catalog? I would love one of these.

    I also deeply envy the card catalogue... and I rarely see them at auctions or other venues!

    This room is really sharp! It all depends what sort of creative endeavours you get into, though. My one wish is for a table

    You can find card catalogs or something similar at antique stores but they are very pricey.
