The tree is up, adorned with an assortment of ornaments, old and new. Our most prized ones are from Ten Thousand Villages, a Mennonite-founded company that provides jobs to artisans around the world at a fair wage. The tree topper is 1970s Hallmark.
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
Sleeping at Last album art, crafts books, supplies, vintage to be altered
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.
