Studio/ Craft Room Reveal!

And in case it’s hard to remember what it looked like when I started, here it is before.

More after photos are below.  The transformation included a few diy projects.  For instance, I made drop cloth curtains, divided a pillow in half, made art (on top of the book shelf), printable art, made coasters, made flowers for magnets, made magnet boards, painted a letter “K” to look metal, painted a peg board and painted upholstery on a second chair.

I painted the art on the bookshelf to mimic the chevron pattern in the rug.

Below are flowers that act as magnets for the two metal magnet boards that flank the subway art.  I made the two rolled ones and the two fluffy ones.

And, paint chips hung on the peg board serve as a backdrop for vintage keys. These were gifted to me from Emily at Ashbury Lane.  She is having a 25% off sale right now.  Be sure to visit her Etsy shop.

Printable art that I made meets you at the entrance and sets the tone of the room.

Hope you enjoyed the reveal!  I’ve enjoyed working in the room already.

  24. Hi…I love your studio. I am just now starting to paint a an old recliner type chair in a teal color to complement our living room. And I am also painting the wood white. So I was really glad to find your site and get some tips about the painting process.
    I was wondering where you got the metal stools…I am also looking for those in white, although I may have to paint them too.
    Thanks very much.

    • Thanks so much! We got the stools on Overstock.com. I didn’t measure well beforehand and they are a little too tall. I should have gotten the shorter ones, though they felt more squatty to me… :) But yeah, that’s where we found them for less than at most places. Good luck on your chair!

  25. Love the rug!! That just makes the room! And what a great job on those DIY. Can I come hang out here?

  26. Bold and bright! What a fabulous craft room. Lots of great DIY projects, especially the painted chair, love it!

  27. Thank you for linking this incredible craft room with Roomspiration: Craft Rooms. I would enjoy creating in that space too! Very impressive!

  28. Fabulous room! I love it

  29. I love how colorful everything is. Great job!

  30. I just saw this over at Sugar and Dots and had to come check it out! This looks like such a great place to work! And I love your chandelier!

  31. I’m impressed with your eye for color and designs. I am MOST impressed with your devotion and energy. Thanks for the inspiration.

  32. Love your style! I need that table for our kitchen…where did you get it?

  33. Can you tell me how you were able to hand the chandelier from the ceiling? I am trying to create this for my classroom. I only want the chandelier to be for decoration–no wiring=)

    Thanks.

    • Sure. The chandelier was from Urban Outfitters and was a swag light that plugged in. So, I put a hook or two on the ceiling and hooked a link in the chain to it. The rest of the cord drapes down and plugs in. Hope that helps!
