Yes, I’m about a month late with this. So much has happened over the last month there simply hasn’t been time! Way more important than my craft room reveal is that….I got engaged! Very exciting news! I thought if I want to blog about any wedding plans I first need to finish this One Room Challenge!
The low table is/was a kids’ craft table and it looks kinda out of place in the photos but it’s actually a good workspace. And the kids, even as big as they are now, still use it once in a while.
I continue to be amazed at the types of things you can organize on the peg board: ribbon, hammers, glitter, magazines, duct tape and more! You can hang just about anything on there including shelves, artwork and antlers! Just get creative with the hooks and you can make it work. (For the duct tape I used a small dowel in between two hooks).
The rest of the craft room really didn’t change that much, except it’s far more organized. I can now see the floor and desk! Everything has a home. The real challenge will come in keeping it that way!
The room certainly isn’t minimalist by any stretch of the imagination; looking at it now it seems very busy. However, I do like to keep a lot of memorabilia. For instance, on the shelves I have: my grandmother’s matchbook collection (which is quite extensive and contains pieces from restaurants all over the world), ribbons from a camp horseshow during the ’70s, and awards I won in 8th grade from Sullins Academy the same school my children now attend. I might have a mild case of hoarder in me. But I come by it naturally.
If you’d like to see some before photos, click here and follow backwards. I’m thinking of doing this again in October, this time with my bedroom (which has already been redone)!
