One Room Challenge {Week 6}: Craft Room Reveal

One Room Challenge Spring 2016: Craft Room Makeover Reveal

Here we are! Week 6 of the One Room Challenge is here! At the beginning, this day seemed somewhat far away, but I tell ya—those weeks flew by! But we made it, and I am excited to share my craft room reveal with you today.

In all honesty, I thought my craft room makeover would be a breeze; after all, I’d already painted the walls, assembled some shelving and sorted through some of my craft supplies when the ORC kicked off back in April. I was wrong. I found myself second-guessing some of my decisions, procrastinating on projects, adding ideas at the last-minute, and battling it out with a laser level. (Anyone who is capable of hanging a gallery wall with just one set of hands is a miracle worker). I can’t imagine how my fellow ORC-ers managed to gut and completely rearrange their rooms over the past six weeks. They deserve major kudos!

But enough of my blabbing on. Let me show you how my craft room makeover turned out!

As an embarrassing reminder, let’s revisit those sad “before” pictures…

You may have noticed that there’s one very open corner in my craft room. I didn’t get my cabinet makeover completed in time. Heck—I barely got it started in time! A combination of my procrastinating nature and underestimating the amount of work it would take to sand and paint a piece of furniture means that I didn’t get this done in time. But the good news is that the sanding process has begun, and now that the project is started, it is much more likely to get completed (wink). 

All-in-all, I’m so happy I decided to join in my first One Room Challenge—it definitely won’t be my last!

If you want to go back and re-live the process, here are all of my ORC posts: Week 1 / Week 2 / Week 3 / Week 4 / Week 5

Be sure to check out my fellow ORC guest participants’ makeovers, as well as the featured designers’ rooms, over at Calling It Home. I have a feeling I’m going to spend most of my day drooling over their beautiful rooms and dreaming up new ideas for the rest of our home (wink).

      Thank you so much, Michelle! The worst part of this project was definitely sorting through all my supplies; I had craft stuff all over our house! I’m so glad to have it all consolidated into one room; now I just have to keep it organized 😉 I’m sure your craft room will turn out awesome!

So proud we made it to the finish, hugs, CoCo

      Thank you so much, Coco! I am so in love with that light – it might be my favorite part of the whole room! I feel like I didn’t have that big of a to-do list for this room and I still got really behind! But I think I’m hooked, and I’m already thinking about which room to tackle in the fall 😉
