Empty nested bedroom turned Craft Room

7 days ago
Over the years I have used every room in my house to paint, sand and stain everything from kitchen cabinets to furniture. When my youngest moved out on her own I was left with a lot of tears and a lot more room!! I bought a work bench from a local carpenter to use as my craft table. Bought shelf systems from Home Depot and split them up into multiple shelf systems. I use old apple crates and wire baskets for storage. It's such a fun space and I now have one room in my house where I know where everything is and I won't have an inch of sawdust on my dining room table. Please feel free to stop by my blog and see the entire post with a lot more pictures!

    I have my own room for sewing, dollmaking, woodcarving, jewelry making, fabric hoarding. There used to be a place for everything, but everything doesn't always find its way back there. I may drag in something new and fill my space. I am hopeless.

    I wouldn't want to get anything like paint or sawdust on that beautiful rug in the room. Hopefully that was just for show and will be replace with something much ugly! LOL

    Nicely done! I love the Sharkey Grey In fact, I was going to use it but ended up using Heavy Goose. In several places. I do like your craft room very much and am in the process of working on one of the rooms in my basement for a craft room.

    Isn't that the truth...having everything in one place! I find that it sometimes takes as long to find all my supplies as it does to do the project. Great job!

    Very nice! I must admit, I am quite envious. Right now, we don't have room for this. Maybe someday!

    Each idea should have directions, from whom ever summited them.

    I created a craft room out of a large sun/florida room. Great natural light but limited wall space to hang stuff. Would like more wall shelves, Oh! and no closet space either so I really like your carpenter's bench. Thank you!
