Newly Cleaned and Organized Craft Room
Let me pause here and say that right now I am noticing how trained I am by seeing so many magazine-beautiful house shots.
I, who always tell people to let go of perfect, am feeling at this moment, slightly awkward about sharing my mostly clean, but not perfect craft room. I am reminding myself that, really, many people reading this would be totally THRILLED to have an entire ROOM to craft in…Just letting you know that, yeah, I have moments of having a hard time letting go of perfect myself.
Here’s my Craft Room that I am So very Grateful to have:
All told, this craft room clean up probably only entailed a few hours worth of work. It took a week though, because with three young kids and a busy life, I almost never have three hours of free time. (The thought of three full hours alone makes me laugh. That would be so awesome, and so rare right now…and “free time” hee hee hee….)
To be fair, I actually HAD a decent amount of underlying organization going on. Much of what I did was really clean up.
- Removed small items from the shelves and replaced with items toddler is less likely to pull out and destroy.
- Cleared off the cabinet fronts and reduced to only a few art pieces.
- Moved kid’s sewing machine out onto hutch where it is easier to access so I can teach 6 year old to sew.
- Improved bill pay center, made cuter.
Still to do:
- Re-cover chair
- Sort items in cupboard on the left
One more way I made the craft room more kids friendly:
We’ve already been using this room more. I’m so excited to get in here and sew and craft!
