For my birthday I got to turn my dinning/craft room into a craft/dinning room. I feel like I live in a Ikea showroom now! Basically I have a very small apartment roughly 700 Sq ft. and I like to craft and my boyfriend likes to play his computer. So we redid the dinning area so that we can both use it. Plus we needed more book room, our book shelves were overloaded!
we got a room dividing double sided book shelf with a desk that attaches. the sewing machine fits wonderfully into one of the shelf units and slides right onto the desk. I have 4 clear craft storage drawers and two sets of small drawers for little things. The piece on the right is a fold down birch table, it has two leaves that swing out to sit 4 + people.
just to show where I moved the Bean (turtle). I plan on making a skirt to fit around the desk we have her tank on too.
The crafting side of the shelving unit. I even have my great grandmothers knitting needles out in a pot.
The boyfriends area. I really need to figure something out with the garbage can though, its a sore thumb right now!
a side of the table up. It will work great for extra crafting space for big projects, and when I am cooking in my tiny kitchen for extra cooking prep space too. There is room to move the table on the other side of the book case towards the living room if needed for dinner guests. Just in case we don't want to sit on the couches?
a view of the table again, with a crafty picture of my pup too.
I figured anyone who has limited space might get a kick out of the new "crafting cubby" as the boyfriend calls it.
