My crafty room.
I’m pretty pleased with how it looks at the moment. It has just been organised so everything is neat and tidy which won’t last too long, but it’s become my favourite room in the house. (This post is really picture heavy – I tried to cut it down but it didn’t happen)
I saw this print in Typo just as we put the first offer in on the house. It was $50 and we didn’t know that we would get this place so I didn’t buy it.
I couldn’t get it out of my mind so I kept an eye out and couldn’t find it online anywhere.
Then I had a shitty day. I don’t actually remember what had happened but I had to go see my doctor. I was in a shitty mood, and I was already in the city so I thought I’d just swing by typo and if it was still there I’d buy it.
It was the last one there and it was on sale, reduced to $20.
It was rather awkward carrying it home on a peak hour train but totally worth it.
These cupboards were in the apartment where they had a sliding door. When we moved we (I mean He) took off the glass sliding doors to move it.
Once they were in, the doors required a fuckton of effort to put back on and I really liked the idea of pretty curtains.
I went to Spotlight in search of fabric and ended up finding the teapots in the middle. After finding two other matching fabrics I took it to the counter to cut but there wasn’t enough teapot material. Fortunately another Spotlight had it in stock so I visited two in one day and spent my weekly allowance in one hit.
I also walked away with these really cute wooden drawers sets.
They’re just MDF which requires assembly, a lick of paint, and some paper.
And while I had all the supplies out I decided to paper my desk as well. I’m still very much a novice, but really this is the only time anyone is going to be looking that closely at it.
And then put curtains on it to hide potential mess. Although while it’s relatively clean I’ll give you a sneak peak.
I even sorted my yarn & fabric stash!
There’s absolutely no way it will stay this organised for long!!!
But my favourite part of all is the walls.
I have a monster print from Marielle.
Some Kate Gabrielle originals.
And some Bekswhoknits embroideries.
Even my cupboard is organised at the moment.
So in case you can’t tell I am totally in love with this room!!! And it’s hard not to be when the stained glass is shining all over it.
The only thing it’s missing is a table! But I am so incredibly grateful to have all of this space. My new craft room is bigger than the bedroom in my old apartment. And there’s still scope for the imagination. I have my eye on a few more prints, plus I have plans to make some too!
Craftiness is happiness.
