“All the little details” about the craft room ~part 2

All or most of the “before” pics of the craft room (mess & all) are in it’s first post.  You can see Part 1, by clicking here.
This is part 2…
How we did it on a dime, scrap, or from the trash:
The peg board:
2ft x 4ft @ Home Depot for $3.88.
I painted it with a roller 3 times from our left over paint via Benjamin Moore ~ “Oceanfront
I purchased a peg accessory box from Home Depot, used a spice rack to store the craft paint, mini curtain rods to house the ribbon, and had a few flat sided buckets & trays to make it all work.
We used last year’s garden stakes to frame in around the back of the peg board so that it would rest an inch away from the wall.
This cubby unit, I have had for-ever!  It’s an old store fixture.  The blue pint mason jars I found on eBay, & labeled some of the jars with Zinc labels via Melissa’s shop (The Inspired Room’s Open Sky.)
I love the zinc tags paired with the blue mason jars.  Such a great vintage look.
Someone asked me. “Where in the world is your printer?”  So this pic is for you.  It’s just “nestled” in, but it works.  I for one, am glad it is not the first thing you see when you come in the room. ***you can also see the frame around the inside of the peg board in this pic, as well.***
My desk & chair we have had for about 4 years.  I earned the money for both by a 2 day garage sale.  I kid you not!  I love the desk & chair for the classic look.  The dry erase calendar is from Wal-Mart.  The ribbon bulletin board was $2.00 from an estate sale that I jazzed up a bit.
Now…for the cutest little framed pin cushion:
I love how this turned out! The frame is from the Liberty of London Collection via Target $3.99
I think this corner is my favorite section of the craft room.  It’s where vintage meets a little modern with a twist of trash junk to jewel thrown in.  Also, has a little family heirlooms as well. (the cedar library table,  large blue Mason canisters, & my Mom’s retro aqua sewing machine.)
My inspiration board is literally from the trash.  I did a separate post here.
My old boring brass tray table…before
AFTER!  with credit due to Krylon Ocean Breeze Blue spray paint for the table & the lamp below.
The window treatment, (in case you missed it the first time post, because it is worth a second mention) was made by me!!!  It is a NO-SEW roman shade found from Full House by the talented Little Green Notebook
I Am A Child of God poster found here.
This lamp was in the trash!  But I rescued her, years ago.  She has never looked so good. ;)
Here’s the low down on my wrapping unit.  We used a old closet pre-drilled shelving unit that was left from the previous owners of our home.  The hanger rail brackets worked perfectly for holding the rail & scraps of molding we had.  I prefer shorter rolls of wrapping paper, so the combination of everything worked beautifully together.  Plus, I have room for more when my inventory grows.
Down below the wrapping paper is where I house larger rolls of paper or shipping supplies.  It works perfectly for my needs & this space.  Not to mention it was FREE after using a little imagination.
Today, I had the pleasure of showing this room off to my Mom for the first time.  Who is my inspiration, teacher, cheerleader, my best friend, and the best DIY-er I’ve EVER known.  Yet again, I felt like a kid in a candy store showing off all my sweet, cheap, crafting treats.  I think I like this room more everyday, if that’s possible.  Thanks for allowing me to talk about it again. 
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. Your craft room is so amazing. I love all the wonderful organization. Blue ball jars are my favorite. The pin cushion is a great idea and that lamp looks incredible. I’m having my second We’re Organized Wednesday on April. I would love for you to link your room if you get the chance. There’s a giveaway too.

  2. This is fabulous. I love all of the vibrant colors you’ve used throughout the room. It’s just so cheerful.

    I about choked on my potato chips when I saw your pin cushion picture frame. I just made 12 of those last week to sell at the market. Mine were in black oval metal frames. I’ll post about them one day I’m sure. I couldn’t believe someone else had my same idea. And I thought I was so smart! lol

    The room is great. Love the colorful window treatment.

  3. I want this room. I also am nuts about the liberty of London stuff. I was looking at some yesterday. The lamp shade too is L of London? Colors couldn’t be better, I just started collecting the jar, you know they have numbers on the bottom, I think for the months of the year you would can something. I bet you have all twelve.

  4. Every detail, every single one is perfect!!! I love this room and I can hear the schreeches from your Momma when she first saw it!!! I actually have a little something for your office, not sure if you saw my email I sent. I can either send it to you or bring it to the Pearl Event (yeah). Email me if you have a sec. It’s just a little something but it goes with your room perfectly. Inspired to get my finishing touches done and do a post! Enjoy the weekend with you family :)
    xoxo

  6. It is impossible to talk about how great this room is in a few short sentences. I love the glass jars for organizing. The pin cushion frame is too fun and creative. All of the colors. The way you created storage and organization in a beautiful way. You really did create function with beauty on this one.

  7. I have so many favorite parts of this room. The lamp is so pretty in that faboulous color and the tray table. But the found frame turned inspiration board is my favorite! Everything is beautiful!

  37. @ PATTY HIBBLE

    the new LAMP SHADE is from Target via the LIBERTY of LONDON collection. tried to find you to reply personally, but no luck. hope you see this. ;)

    ****Someone else asked where the desk is from (forgot who on another blog)*****

  43. I loved your cubby with the jars…what a cute storage idea! And your wrapping center added into the predrilled holes…genius. Well done!

  44. I found your cute craft room at Tatertots and Jello and am so glad I did! It’s hard for me to organize and it helps so much to visually see a space that is not only organized but adorable as well. I can’t wait to have a wonderful space like this one day! Thanks so much for sharing!

  45. Inspiration comes to mind when I look at your awesome pictures! Thank you for sharing your tips!

  46. Love it! I decided to post a link on my blog.

  47. Saw this organization and just thot it was great. Love the canning jars! We posted your link on our blog at http://www.lady-like.net/blog Started organizing my small craft room today. Thanks for sharing your room!

  48. What great ideas! I’m excited to get my craft room up and going. Due to less space I have to settle sifting through boxes for my craft stuff but it’s nice to dream about.

  49. I love this and I’m planning to borrow some of your ideas! My sewing table is in the corner of my living room so I have to keep it cute, and my computer desk/office is central to the house so I have to keep it cute, too — although I do have more leeway there as it’s a whole room that can be however I like it. I especially love the blue mason jars & the color of your pegboard!!!

  50. Simply amazing! I’d love for you to come link this up at my Tuesday Time Out Party!
