I have been busy, busy, busy setting up my new craft room. In February I began moving my room from the basement to my top floor to gain natural light. I didn't have windows in my former craft area and that is one feature that I really wanted for my new space.
My room is still a work in progress and there are many changes to come. I am having cushions made for my chairs (one of which is in the left corner of the photo above) to match my decor.
New cornices are being made for my windows which will allow even more light to come in as the curtains you see will be become a table skirt for my new cloffice (closet/office) area. Did you know that a few years ago my coworker submitted the word "cloffice" to Webster's Dictionary? Yep, and they sent her a certificate. Hmmm, I wonder if it ever appeared in print?
|Please excuse the wires! lol|
Here is the new cloffice, but it is far from finished. Please excuse the wires. lol. I am having a black and white skirt made in a few weeks and I will be painting the inside walls of the area. This was a closet which still has the builders paint! I just never thought to paint it when my clothes were in here. lol.
My husband made and installed shelves for me which I have to paint. I still haven't decided on what color to paint the walls or if it will be wallpapered. Decisions, decisions.
I have two file cabinets and my sewing machine under the desk. I don't use the filing cabinets on a daily basis (they hold business papers, etc) so this is a good place for them for now.
This is a new addition, Madeliene the dress form. Well, she's not new to me, but I haven't had her in my craft room in over a year. She fits perfectly in this new space.
Another new addition is my secretary. It is from Ikea and I put it together in the middle of the night. I can't help it, I got excited and I didn't want to wait until morning. It wasn't hard, you just have to take your time.
