My husband and I went to Home Depot or Lowe’s (I’ve forgotten which, we’ve made so many trips to both!) to buy the brackets and shelves that we installed over the counter. I saw pictures of craft rooms with shelves for open storage and to hold decorative items and I decided that’s what I wanted to do.
And those are the main features of my room. Coming soon will be how I furnished my room. I’ve decided my craft room posts will have a much better chance of being finished if I write in multiple small pieces.
If you’re thinking of building a craft room or converting an existing room into one, I highly recommend the book Organizing Your Craft Space by Jo Packham. It’s got lots of wonderful pictures showing many features of many craft rooms (including those of people I’ve seen on the Carol Duvall show). I spent hours looking through this book and reading and rereading every word while planning my room. Reading this book and planning my room were almost as much fun as working in it is now. (I said ALMOST.)
Come back soon to learn more about my room and to see my Halloween jack-o-lanterns! I’ve got a couple other projects in progress that MUST be done before Thanksgiving. I’ll be showing them soon, also.
