Where Bloggers Create 2014

 
Today I'm so pleased to be participating in the Where Bloggers Create blog tour hosted by the wonderful Karen over at My Desert Cottage.

MY DESERT COTTAGE

 
My craft room is my favorite room in our house. I planned it carefully for months before creating it from a spare bedroom. It's my own personal space; a little room full of my work in-progress, arts and craft supplies, and little bits and pieces I've collected over the years just for me. It has a long L-shaped work table made from two solid core doors supported by an old desk cut in-two along with an old spray painted filing cabinet. There are two steel storage cabinets and a closet outfitted with shelves. A little sewing table sits just inside the door. Underfoot is painted sub-flooring. During a project my craft room can look like a tornado has touched down in there, but with all the storage and a place for everything, I'm able to put things straight in no time.

I hope you enjoy this tour of my creative space!





























































I hope you enjoyed my craft room tour.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Don't forget to visit Karen's blog over at My Desert Cottage to see many more creative spaces.

  4. Hi Laurel,

    Wow, your creative space is amazing! So bright and airy and filled with many lovely items. I noticed on your desk you have a pretty white cabinet with images of scissors. Is that a repurposed jewelry box? It really caught my eye! I like your use of the steel cabinets. Thank you for sharing your space with us and for the inspiration.

  5. oh my gosh! so neat and organized, how do you find anything? just joking. Love the idea of putting the stains and paints etc., together in clear bins. I'm going to steal that right away (as soon as I find them). Thanks for all the inspiration.

  8. Wow Laurel, your craft room is even more amazing than I remembered! It has so many pretty details to enjoy and inspire, but it is totally functionally at the same time. It is clear that you thoughtfully planned a space for everything you need. You have so much storage. And I love that generous table space to really spread out. You have created a wonderful space to create!

  9. Hi Laurel!
    You have such a lovely space! Love to see your photographs...such beauty! You did a great job in there!
    I love the L shaped door/tables too. I did the door for a table top too, but not into an L shape.....hmmmmm,
    must put that idea in my brain for the future!!!
    Thanks so much for sharing your pretty space for the party!!
    Blessings,

  13. Laurel your studio is just lovely. I know what you mean about it being your favorite space in the house. Sometimes I go into mine just to sit and watch tv!! It's nice to be surrounded by things that you love. :) Thanks so much for joining the party!!!!

  14. Lovely space, So organized! I love it! I am getting there! Some things are super organized in my space - some well, I would be embarrassed to open the cabinet in front of someone! LOL One day I will get it all right!

  16. Wow Laurel, what a lovely and organized room... adore your chippy wood & wreath piece. You have so much great natural light coming in, it must be wonderful to be in there and create. What a great idea to make a desk out of those doors; they look fab!

  17. Great space. Did you say you cut a desk in half? Cool idea. I love repurposing things in my space. Looks like you do too. Love how everything is labeled. I want a label maker! thanks for sharing your space! My little space Is linked too.
    Come by and see me!

  20. I love it, Laurel! You know what jogged my memory of you sharing this space - the little wood piece with the scissor images. : ) I love the shelf you have in view as soon as you come in your door. Such a great area to have some pretties on display. Great idea to keep your faux florals in a bucket. I tend to shove mine wherever I can find room. I should see if I can't find something to store them in to make them part of the décor while they are waiting for a project. I love the nice big work top you have to do projects on. I see you like clear storage, too. It just makes it easier to find things, don't you think? Thanks for the tour!

  23. Your space is simply wonderful.

    I think every studio I have visited today, including mine, has the little IKEA 3 tiered cart, but yours is the only one I have seen in white.

    I was flattered to notice the little wire wreath I sent you hanging on your board.

  27. A beautiful studio Laurel! I especially love the set of black drawers under your desk. I noticed the Martha Stewart glitters, aren't they just divine to use. Thanks for sharing your lovely studio. Karen.x

  28. Yes, I did enjoy touring your creative space. The long desktops must be wonderful to be able to spread out projects, especially any sewing projects.

  30. Laurel,

    Your craft room is amazing! Love all the tiny attention to details. I will be "borrowing" your idea of the wooden mug holder for scissors, genius! Thank you for sharing your truly lovely space.

  33. Wow! I loved looking around your AMAZING creative loft! But, I have to admit, I could have spent the whole tour just looking and drooling over your amazing and beautiful rug! Aren't you afraid of spilling stuff on it? My floors are always littered with debris! So you are truly an inspiration! Hope you'll visit my studio soon! Sweet Blessings, Chris

  34. What a wonderful work space. You planned and implemented it well! I would love to create in there!

  35. Really nice work space, you have really good storage and work surfaces and I really like how you display things.
    So many little goodies throughout the space, and I like the idea of how you store your tools (all so easy to find).... I might have to steal that idea : ) as I always get lost in my baskets looking for specific tools. And the one thing that made me laugh, is the very simple storage thing you have in there, is the one for your glasses... I have no idea how many I have lost in my space, so yes, I might have to steal that idea too! Thanks for sharing, it was lovely to see!

  38. Popped over here from BNOTP and have been admiring your studio space! (I have the same green ceremic birds!) I used to live in the North End of Boise, 8th and Lemp, in a six-plex apartment. Our oldest some was born at St. Luke's in 1977 and we brought him home to that location, too. We moved away long ago but that same son just welcomed his first baby boy yesterday. If our boys and grandchildren weren't here in WA, we would retire to Boise. Fun to find your blog :)

  39. Hi, Laurel. I saw your post on Facebook and thought I would stop in and say hello. I just love your craft room and hope to have a room like that one day. Wish we lived closer! :) The garden is doing great. We're eating green beans, crookneck squash, and zucchini almost every day now. Can't wait for the tomatoes to grow big enough. Hope you're having a great summer. ~ Jamie

  46. Great craft room, Laurel. The work table is fantastic. Such a clever idea to cut up an old desk for the end pieces. You have lots of good storage and everything is organized well. On top of all that it's a very pretty space, too, with lots of "Laurel" decorative touches. I'd work there in a heart beat. Thanks for sharing at Karen's party. xxx ~ Nancy
