11  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / Craft Studio: Work in progress on: July 25, 2011 07:50:56 PM
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.

Truly Lovely! We painted our bathroom an almost identical shade "Ashes" from Behr. It's so soothing and cool and clean. Love it in the living room!

I love the idea of this swap and all of the amazing things posted thus far. May just prompt me to get back into swapping again. That is, if I can spare some of my valuable time!

I have this http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80208652
I always thought it would be great for sectioning off a room, plus great for storage!

A: Normally you don't need to sand the old paint off. (This can be harmful if the paint is lead) The sanding is so you have a smooth surface for the new paint to adhere to. To do this you can run a fine grit sandpaper over the walls not to remove the paint just to sand it down a bit. OR, you can just run your hands over the walls and sand any bumps or stains, oily spots etc. Then, wipe down the walls with a damp rag starting at the top. Definitely remove the switch plate covers and tape off what you're not going to paint (such a pain) but an even bigger pain is getting started and having to stop to avoid baseboards, doors and lights you dont want to paint. Trim in the baseboards and ceiling (two coats) first, then roll.

(we bought a house last year and have been painting queens. We use Behr or Behr Ultra paint)

Crafty folks such as those found here could probably pull a table like that off! Make sure your glass top has smooth/rounded edges. And do your painting/ stenciling on the bottom. This desk is lovely for crafting because glue comes right off. (Not that I get glue everywhere all the time or anything...) I also love the playful shadow patterns it throws up on the wall. My room is 90% complete,... I'll try to update with pics tomorrow
