Last week found my life crazy busy with no time to get you a craft space to peek into. So sorry to those who check in every week to see who’s creative space we are sharing!

This week however we have a great before/after version of a craft room shared by Kim Veveers. We are lucky that she took pictures at both ends of her renovation so we can see all she has done! The before pictures show a wonderful space, but I love the changes she made. It is a lovely, bright space that I could easily spend hours of my time!

 

 

Hi Kim 

 

I thought I would share my craft room with you and your readers. My husband and I worked on it last spring and I was very pleased with the results.

 The room was given a complete overhaul; getting rid of furniture, keeping some, replacing and adding new pieces. I was a little concerned about having too much white in the room initially but now have no regrets.

There is so much more usable space in the room now and it is a pleasure to work in. I am happy with the way it turned out and it was worth the wait. The cost to redo the room was about an additional $600.00 after reusing some furniture. That money went a long way shopping at Ikea for their great storage solutions.

Most important part of the project was having a husband who was on board 100% and willing to redo the room for me as he was the carpenter. He listened to what I wanted and needed and did what he could with my dreams.

It is my place to go. To create and go into another world while crafting, forgetting the day’s troubles and challenges. I am a very tidy person overall, the remark I am told a lot is “too clean, must not be used”. Not true as I am a person who cleans up after each days task, putting things in their proper place. It works for me as I need a space in control to work creatively.

      Thanks, it was a lot of work but there is no regrets in all the time and money put into the renovation.

  1. This is great. I have a great room but it has become a bit unorganized & needs an over haul. Embarrassed that a friend went into my closet. Time to work on it. I will do before & after pictures.

      I am amazed at how much more I am using my supplies now that I know where everything is and the layout. I purged and rediscovered what I had hiding in corners. Made a big difference in how much I use my room.

  2. Your space looks great I will have to put a bug in my hubby’s ear and maybe great things will happen — Hope hope — wish wish

      Does this mean that my husband has to be careful when he goes out on the street?

    Congrats on the renovated room. I’ve been re-organizing lately and finding better ways of having things I use most often closer at hand or easier to get at. What I love about this part of the website is the reassurance that I’m not the only one out there with a problem 😛 Happy Scrapping in your room!

      Thanks very much. I am loving creating in my room now with it being uncluttered, bright and clean. Have fun in your new room with the changes and happy scrapping to.

    I too redid my room a few years ago and made a lot of improvements but unfortunately it is still way too small and over crowded and unless we buy a new house or I take over the living room I’m stuck. It is amazing how much easier it is to produce when you can find things easily. I also quilt so that is part of the problem with an 9×9′ room. Still have to use my dinning room table to sew at. I am going to need to start doing a major purge. Your room looks to be at least twice as big as mine and 2 closets – wow. Can we trade places.
