home tour: The Craft Room

The craft room has technically been as finished as it’s going to get for at least a month, but I’ve been so busy stocking my shop and sewing that it’s always a mess. I cleaned it up just for this home tour.

This is the space that’s solely mine in the house. I gave Daniel a lovely “library,” but he only goes in it to chill with our pet rats. At least I tried.

Vintage and supplies

I repainted the edges of this desk that we picked up at the local Habitat Restore to give it a clean finish. I bought the shelf at the Good Cents store in Tallahassee and gave it several coats of semigloss black paint.

I picked up the old window frame above outside an art studio at Railroad Square in Tallahassee during a portrait session. I added some covered cork board to two of the holes with patience and a staple gun. I’m not sure if this is the finished look or not, but I’m good with it for the time being.

These curtains were a thrifted find. I initially planned to make a crazy skirt out of the fabric, but, in the end, they got to fulfill their intended use. They’re a bit childish, but they work in this room.

Edit 10/1: Perfect timing! ModCloth just announced their “Awe & Order” contest, highlighting the efforts of fans with great organizational skillz. If you like this room, please vote for my entry here! Thanks.
