Hello Everyone and welcome back to our craft room makeover! It’s week 2 of the $100 Room Challenge already and we had hoped to share a bit more with you, but we didn’t get as much time as we had hoped. September is really flying by!
If you missed week 1 and our plan for this room you can take a look at it HERE.
As we mentioned last week, we are transforming a spare bedroom at Vicki’s house into a craft room so we can have an organized space for all the small crafts and sewing we do. What a relief it will be for us to have this finished! Right now, most of that gets done at Vicki’s dining table – which is definitely not ideal.
So this week we moved a couple furniture pieces into the room. The desk below was used for the sewing machine previously – it was just located in a different room. Being in this room will be so much better, the biggest reason – better light! Where the sewing desk was before had no windows, and we definitely prefer to work in natural light.
After moving the desk, we decided to clean out the closet and put our stash of fabric on the shelves. We only got about half of the closet cleaned out and about half of the fabric moved into it. We realized we have a lot of fabric!
We also moved a large dresser that was the upstairs TV stand into this room. Besides being great storage we think we are going to set up our silhouette on top of here for printing. It’s something we want accessible but we don’t necessarily use everyday.
And while cleaning out and rearranging closets we found some amazing items we can use for…yes MORE STORAGE!
Seriously though, that cubby will be awesome. We also found a actual craft organizer that hangs. It’s always been the goal to get a designated craft space, so that organizer was purchased a long time ago.
So, to recap, we have not spent any of our budget as of yet just found and moved items around in the house. We just came up with a new plan for our craft table which we hope to complete by next week! That is where most of the budget will go. We came up with our own build plan using partial materials we already have! It’s going to be great!
I love that dresser! I also can’t wait to see what you do for the sewing table.
I too love that dresser. Your room is coming along nicely! Thank you for sharing on Merry Monday! Hope to see ya next week!
