Craft Room pics ~ Part Two

Some of you might remember this plaque that used to hang out in my craft 'barn', but now it's inside, warm and toasty, along w/all my other crafty stuff. This hangs in between the closet and the hanging thread pegboard.Let's continue around the room, shall we??The cheapy light fixture I bought at WW(Wally World), but that second light really comes in handy when I'm ironing. I can twist it any which way I need to.These 3 black shelves hang in the corner, over on the opposite side of the room. The two top shelves hold some of my favorite pieces that I've either made, collected, or sweet blogger friends have sent me. The bottom shelf holds baskets for trim, round pearl cotton, rick rack, extra bobbins and machine needles, etc.Down below is my collection of older thread and in the clear plastic basket w/handle, holds all of my newer thread.Yes, I know I need to make some valances for the windows. (there is another one I haven't shown yet).This counter has a drawer base on either side(that holds more STUFF)~lol, and butts up against the drop~leaf table that holds my ironing pad, etc. The counter is about 7 or 8 ft. long. I think hubby had to cut a little off of the right side to fit in the space out in the barn, but it worked just fine inside. I really tried hard to make use of everything I had out there that would fit in the new room.Underneath the old black drop~leaf sits my little stereo unit. (Hey, a gal's gotta have some music while she works), lol. The 3~drawer plastic bin holds more cross stitch charts and kits.

I guess this means there will be a third post~ LOL! I will show you the other half of the room next time. (it contains all my FABRIC and WOOL)~tee hee Also, I can't wait to show you a couple of things I've made recently.

Keep saving up those pennies, as I'm gearing up for a big SALE soon, don't forget!!

As always, I appreciate your stopping by for a visit and hope you enjoyed your stay!
Happy Crafting!

I so enjoyed the second leg of your craft room tour, Tanya! And what a pretty color you've painted it :)

Sweet Sue said...

That is one very cool space you've got there Tanya, thx so much for sharing. Even with all the new this-n-that storage solutions, I must admit I've always adored pegboard for almost everything. Enjoy!

Awww I'm so jealous...beautiful room hun; I have a craft room that I have no idea what to do with; I need to organize it so badly; I may "borrow" your idea on storing your threads hun; I love your idea; what order do you have them in??

Hugs, Shar

Catherine said...

Love your craft room! And I agree with Carol, such a pretty paint color!

I have that very same Ten Commandments sign. A gift from my daughter. My kids used to break the rule about the scissors quite often when they were young.

Christine said...

Another amazing post! It really is the neatest craft room ever!

Tanya...what a nice tour. I just love your sewing area....did your hubby build that for you....sew nice!

Music is a must have and it looks like your creative room is complete. Most important of all is the time enjoyed in this space.

I always love to see how other people organize their "creative spaces"...especially how they use color. Your hanks of thread on the pegboard are so cool!
