When I decided to throw my hat in the proverbial ring for this round of the One Room Challenge, six weeks to finish up my already-in-progress craft room makeover sounded like for-ev-er. Well, it’s Week 5 and the panicky feelings are setting in! This past week, I was focused on prettying up my plain white walls, and I’m excited to give you a peek at my craft room artwork!
I’ve been collecting prints here and there that I intended to use in my home office. But since I changed gears a little (what else is new?) and decided to go with a magenta, tangerine and teal color palette in my craft room, I decided to hang the prints in there instead.
I used these prints to create a small gallery wall across from my craft table, so I have something inspiring to look at while I work.
From top left: Jane Austen print from The Diggingest Girl / Rain Print by Michel Valenton / Blog print (I think this was in a swag bag from Alt for Everyone?) / Make Something Amazing art by me / framed bag art.
On the wall behind my craft table, I wanted a something a little funky, so I decided to spell out “CREATE” with a variety of letters.
I’ll show you how I made the various letters in posts to come, but I started with a combo of galvanized and chipboard letters from Michaels. To give each a unique look, I used faux flowers, watercolors, fabric and a whole bunch of circles punched out of the other side of the Anthropologie bag that I framed above. And then I kind of ran out of steam on the two metal “E”s; if you have suggestions, I’d love to hear them!
Here’s what’s still left to do before next week’s full reveal:
paint the walls install a real light fixture choose a craft table/work surface install shelving unit or bookcases
- space for sewing machine
storage solutions for various craft supplies & materials
- create a photo studio in one corner
- paint old cabinet for photo studio space/storage
- make a magnetic display board (because why not add another project to the list heading into the last week!?!?)
wall art and colorful accents
