Sneak Peek:



My beautiful wife and I have been home improving fools since buying our first home in November. So far we've done all the work ourselves! We're pretty awesome girls lol We are basically painting and reflooring every single room.

Amazing woman that she is, she helped me do this over two days Memorial weekend. It combines my love of all things craft and it will be my library.

I feel so spoiled to FINALLY have a craft space. (I do scrapbooking, tile mosaics and photography mostly, recently getting into card making and some jewelry) See ya later kitchen table/ bed crafting! I am giddy with excitement, I'm sure everyone here can relate. It's not finished at all,... but I couldn't wait to post pics. I'll update with my progress!

Still to do: Paint trim, Window coverings, Install new light fixture, new door levers, rug, photos and various crap for walls, and book shelves, book shelves, book shelves! And um, you know, haul in all my craft stuff...

BEFORE: aka Beware the basement



Lets not even discuss that brown indoor/outdoor carpet with previous owner pet pee stains EWWWWW!!



Stage One:

Pyro the cat admires my floor



View from the closet (haha) The walls are less bright blue and a touch greener. More soothing... It's hard to capture true color




My desk- just waiting for my new iMac





CURRENTLY.... Still not finished but making progress!!

This is the far corner, some of my favorite photos on the ledge, the hanging jar holders on the wall hold beads, jewelry findings, scrapbooking brads etc. Most of the storage stuff came from Ikea



]

Another view of that wall. The brown thing on the left corner is my forever unfinished mosaic table.



Corner by the closet


Computer, ikea desk, free newspaper kitty Smiley


Inspiration and mementos


Bookshelf, still have boxes and boxes of books to unpack. The wife and I assembled this monster without a single curse word Smiley



Not really a photo of anything but I love these stars, bought them at an adorable Amish bake shop






Still to do:
Window covers, clean and straighten, get a rug, hang a few shelves. These pics aren't the greatest and I still have a lot to do (in between the rest of the home projects, work and grad school starting next month lol) I didn't want to leave this thread hangin. Hopefully it inspires some one as some of the amazing craft rooms posted here have inspired me.

Wow, this looks very beautiful and organized. I love how you made this room look airy, even if there's only a small window. And there's so much room! Aww. I'm envious...

Wow, that's a great room, full of inspiration and that ever elusive space to work!  I love your choice of wall color, very soothing, and the pics everywhere.  My craft room is small, and I have it so packed full of stuff I love, that I barely have room to work.  I envy your space  Smiley

Since my girls actually nap (knock on wood), I am going to start trying to work off my negative feedback.  Life got hectic with their early arrival.  I apologize for the inconveniences my flaking caused.

Thanks Smiley I am a perpetual other people's craft space lurker. I've never had my own craft space and was floored when I got this huge basement room! I think the light flooring really helps open the space up! Also, the awesome ceiling light my wife installed (it had one of those generic boring lights that look like a boob-I hate boob lights)

On my inspiration line there is a 5x7 picture of a bedroom from a magazine that has similar wall color and black and white accents. I fell in love and have been toting it around with me. One of these days I'll finish it and post proper pics. Thanks for the feedback Smiley

Not to give away my secrets but IKEA, IKEA, IKEA. They're spice holders, most of the storage on that wall came from IKEA's kitchen section.

Jars: http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40064702
http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/90022781

Well I cant find the exact racks- that IKEA site drives me nuts! I also have a few magnetic knife holders, they look like black bars, they hold spice tins with various bits and pieces.
