Craft Room revealed…

I decided that it would be a nice surprise for Mama to come home to a craft room without all of MY stuff everywhere, and so I got busy and tidied it up. Actually there was very little that needed to be done other than remove my stuff….LOL! So, here it is…before & after:


This is the only before I am going to show you. I will say that there was a LOT of furniture in this room…a single bed, a wardrobe, a bedside table, a chest of drawers (rather large) and of course Mama’s craft table, which was just a folding table. This is what it looked like after everything was taken out and the old carpet ripped up.

This is what it looks like now….








This last photo is the opposite end of the room from the French doors. There is another chair to come in here, but it needs to be repainted first.

I have to tell you that Mama did most of the work all by herself..all the painting, ripping up the old carpet, moving furniture…she’s amazing :) I was in charge of making cups of coffee and bringing glasses of water…something which I excel at! LOL  I did help to put some of the furniture together…an interesting enterprise that! Someone should tell those people that their instructions suck!!!!

There it is, finally! The craft room in all it’s prettiness! I know Mama would love to know what you all think. Now that it’s all clean and tidy I feel this overwhelming urge to go make something and mess it all up again…..

See you tomorrow with the Mojo Monday card.

Oh what a fabulous craft room. I envy your mum and you. My 'craft area' is my dining room table. You should see all the shelving units all around the room for all my craft stuff. Needless to say we don't use the dining room at all. LOL.
