a cute place to make stuff ♥

it's been my ♥'s desire for so long now...to be here
on this little blog, to share & encourage...so here we go!

 how 'bout a peek into the cuteness of a space where i make stuff?! :)
yes! that means a mess of pictures...make some tea...spend some time :)

i'm blessed to have a hubby who knows a thing or two about tools and such
i show him something on Pinterest
then say "look honey, you could soooo do that right?" 
he gives me the look...
the "you're trying to butter me up to get me to make you that" look
:)
so with a grateful ♥ to him...
(1. for building everything in the room himself)
(2. for supporting me and my wild n' crazy dreams)
...come in and see!



this room was originally a formal living room used formally by the previous owners of the house :)
we're not really a formal family so it was mainly the room that held the tools & paint 
(or misc. craft projects:) while we renovated the rest of the house...



hubby made this huge 8'x4' island from scratch :) with my dad...
i wanted to have a place to lay out yardage (and a place to have craft night with the girls ♥)
it also makes for a lot of storage underneath...
big baskets with yarn, batting, and projects in the works...







my idea for the island is to write out some sections from Prov.31 over the entire top 
then sand it to look worn...that's on the to-do list :)






these shelves are the plain white cheapies from Target, that we got super cheapie during back to school/college time...the crown molding  (top and in between each shelf to hide the seams) & arches were added then painted all gray







just a few close-ups of supplies ♥
old mason jars i found at a rummage sale in an old church last summer...
i ♥ rummage sales in old churches







this little birdcage houses vintage pillowcases ♥




yellow spray paint + lace trim + a little birdie = cuteness ♥






...an old nails & screws organizer sorts embroidery floss...










simple boxes covered in brown paper








strips of fabric ruffled on my sewing machine got hot glued on each bin...
these are all still in need of labels so i remember what's where ...




my stash ♥ i can't wait to dive into these and make stuff :)






(that cute little printable banner is from ♥here)



sweetness ♥ who can resist kindergarten penmanship :)





...this side of the room is where i sew :) hubby built the shelves and table...




the larger bins on top hold patterns, notions and some other things...
these too should be labeled, or maybe numbered? 
table skirt was made from a shower curtain from TJ Maxx
a cornice over the window is in the same print









still trying to figure out what to do for window treatments...
would like to keep it light but it's a huge window on the front of the house 
so privacy is a must too... window treatments are tough to figure :)
the lighting is hubby's workmanship ...i'm seeing burlap - lace -or felt flowers all around the base of the shades? i can't decide...


back to the table...i mod podged a dress pattern on the top
 & fabric measuring tape on the edge (then covered with lotsa coats of polyurethane)














thread storage from an old typesetting box 

(owl calendar is ♥here)
















i could do a whole separate post for all the inspiration! 
if you scoot over to my pinterest boards, you'll see the "studio" board 
with most of the ideas i applied in my space, i bet you can pick out a bunch of 'em :)


so my to do list for this room still has a few things on it


1. stencil & finish table top
2. label & number bins
3. put some cute stuff on the light fixtures
4. make covers for sewing machine & serger


...but it's all fun stuff! 


i'm also dreaming about what to put in my little etsy shop...
i want to fill it to the brim with lots of Sugar n' Spice ♥
you can see how empty is it by clicking on the the link in the sidebar :(
i have a ton of ideas rolling around in my head! just want to choose the best ones...


that's my little world of crafting goodness ♥
 hope you like it! come back and make stuff with me :)

  30. OMG this is THE most amazing craft room I have ever laid eyes on. You are an amazingly talented lady!
    I'm going to have to pinch a couple of your ideas methinks lol. I'm not really a fan of banners but I love your one.
    The table is a masterpiece, I would never have thought to do that.
    My craft room is due for a spruce up (it's completely bare) so I hope to incorporate some of your vision.
    Did you pre-plan all of this or make it up as you went along?

    I'm your newest fan and will be watching your space in awe!

  32. I knw you are new to blogging, PLEASE consider turning off comment moderation (those strings of letters or numbers we have to type in to leave ya a comment!). I know I don't usually leave a comment if I have to do it, it is just too time consuming, and I think you will find many others feel the same. You can always choose not to post a comment if someone leaves spam or something inappropriate. Thanks!

  33. Wow! This room is more than amazing. My family and I just moved into a new home (my blog inactivity is really starting to creep up on me) and the basement is going to be my sewing and crafty goodness area. That table alone is enough to make me drool. I have a ton of obsticles like ugly blue cement walls, harsh lighting, exposed beams (not the pretty kind) and possible flooding...but I am determined and your beautiful room has motivated me!

    Thanks and I look forward to following along.

  53. Found you thru Pinterest! (Now following with RSS, too.)(and yes, I am a parenthesis girl too, lol!) LOVE (see, there are some uses for caps) the craft room, and I have to ask - is there any way you or hubby would consider a tutorial for the craft table? (the 4x8 one. I am in the process of building my room, too, and your table is just what I was looking for but couldn't find. I want to ditch what I started with and start over! My hubby is willing to build one, but says he would need measurements and/or plans. (and, is willing to pay - lol, maybe you could add to your Etsy shop!) Either way, love the room; thanks for sharing with us, and I will be spreading you even farther out on Pinterest! (Lisa Rollins on Pinterest)

  61. Beautiful! I have seen a lot of crafty spaces, but I think I like this one the best. It is completely functional and not too frilly that I can just get to work. My husband & I just purchased an outdoor building to use for an office/craft room(our home has no extra space). We have to finish the inside and design our personal spaces. I want to have separate stations for sewing & crafting and give my daughter an art station. This room is very close to what I had in mind. Of course mine will be on a smaller scale.

  87. This room has me giddy, giddy, giddy! I woke my husband up from a snooze to show it to him and to tell him that we were doing something like this---ASAP! I have a spring in my step with this new inspiration! We measured and sketched and believe it or not, I think we can achieve it by re-purposing and reusing much of what we already have. I can't wait to have a crafting spot for my girls and I that is integrated into my own sewing studio. I think the use of your "Formal Living Room" for this space shows that we all could stand to rethink how we use the rooms in our house to meet our own needs today.

  95. I have an Ikea desk that was in my old craft room that doesn't work in my new house because of the color (I want the new craft room to be all white). I was thinking about covering the top with paper, fabric, whatever... anything to hide that light Ikea "wood". Think I could do that and use the polyurethane? I just want to make sure it stands up to me dragging all my different sewing/serger/embroidery machines across it ;)

    1. hi Chrystyna!
      it should work fine! my table top was also all wood...i used Mod Podge to glue down the actual pattern paper, then did many coats of poly (probably 5-6) over it for that very same reason...endurance! since those machines are heavy :)

  97. This is the best craft room I have ever seen, hands down! I had never thought about having a big table like that for girls' craft nights, but it's such an amazing idea. I can't wait to go see what you have pinned on Pinterest! Thanks so much for sharing your space and for giving us all inspiration.

      the chalkboard was actually from a yard sale! can you believe it?? a retired teacher who was having the sale just wanted to get rid of it...she sold it to me for $5.00!! ...that was a super fun day i remember coming home with it in my van to a very surprised look on my hubby's face! haha! (but he should know me by now right??) I'm so glad you came by!

  112. OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!! You and your hubs have done the most amazing, fantastic and wonderful transformation I have ever seen in my entire life! You both have a lot to be proud of. My hubs built a table for me and was actually going to take over the sun room in our home, but I wound up moving into the guest bedroom. Seeing your post makes me think I should go with the original thought and move everything back out into the main area of the house! Wow! I am utterly speechless! Thank you so much for sharing. I see inspiration everywhere!

    That old blue Smith Corona, is just like one I go for my birthday when I was 9!! What a memory! I think my mother bought it for me because she could not read my handwriting! (In truth I was a lefy that the nuns turned into a righty. No wonder!)

    What a great accomplishment you have created! (My studio is a mess since I am always painting it it! I wouldn't dare have it inside of my home.)

Goodness, I've been sitting here trying to figure out to make the hearts and can't figure it out! .. I think it's my laptop's keyboard, and not me lol.. I know how to make the heart in facebook.. but that's different.. Any help?? :)

    1. Hi Jessica!
      you can make the heart symbol anytime you're typing, by holding down the Alt key while pushing the number 3 key on the number pad...i do know when i use my hubby's laptop it doesn't work :( thinking it's because it has to be an actual keyboard with the number pad...hope this helps! thanks for the sweet visit :) ♥ much love

    2. Ya, that doesn't work for my laptop- sad face! I was seriously searching all over the web to try to get it to work, then I randomly highlighted and copied a heart and pasted and it totally worked! haha!! All that searching too.. goodness.. And I totally copycatted your pinterest board hearts idea hehe :) Your pinterest collections are awesome! I've been going through them for days! Great ideas!

    1. Hi Amanda!
      I'm not sure if you could buy arches? we did make them, using one inch pine board... my hubby traced the arch shape onto the wood using a paper template (that we drew) then he cut it out with a jigsaw... the wood was measured to fit the inside of the bookcase, so whatever your measurements are you could apply it to your lumber ... hope this helps!

  156. I absolutely positively LOVE your craft room. Wish I could have one like that here, but there just isn't the space.

    I do have some suggestions for window treatments though. First you mentioned that you want to keep the light but have some privacy. The first thought that comes to mind would be sheers, for a more updated look perhaps you could use cheesecloth, a fine tulle, or gauze-like fabric. Another option would be to use something like Gallery Glass Clear Frost, or something else what will give the window a texture. There is an old standby of textured clear contact paper placed on the window, which works extremely well for privacy in the bathroom.

  157. I love your space!! I wish I could have something as awesome as this.
