My Craft Space Reveal

We've lived in our new apartment for three months now. During that time life has been a little crazy and I haven't had a chance to unpack everything. Mostly it's been the essentials of day-to-day life and everything else has been stored in boxes.

Well I finally got around to unpacking the last few boxes! And that meant I could finally get my craft room organized and put away. It's been a labor of love, and I'm so happy to have my space back!
This was an "In progress" photo. See those shelves? I found all of them for a grand total of $10 at the local thrift store. I was totally psyched to find them! 

UGLY UGLY UGLY vertical blinds! Not creative at all! Just ugly and loud when the wind blows. They had to go immediately. 

This is the after picture! Standing in the doorway to the room, my craft space calls to me! 

  See the curtains? I took down the blinds and slipped a safety pin on each tab and put that in the clips on the track instead. The Love, Faith, Hope on the top of the track are actual little candle holders my mom gave me. They don't have any candles in them, but I love the way they look sitting on top of the curtains. 

My chair set up and waiting for me at the sewing machine. I decided to hang one of my favorite quilts on the wall behind me for inspiration! (Ignore the stuff on the ironing board, I forgot to move that stuff after I was done with the room! Oops...)

My view from the end of the table. I have the TV set up to watch some Netflix and TV while in there working on something crafty. My most favorite part of this view is the shelf above the TV. 

While I was organizing all my craft supplies I found some old vinyl sayings that were supposed to be used on a different project that I decided to up cycle. The best phrase I found was "thankful". This is a great reminder to me every time I look at it to be thankful for my awesome craft space.

These shelves I found at the thrift store for under $10. I love how my stuff is organized and within easy reach for fast crafts! The bin on the floor is full of fabric waiting to be turned into a project. 

The other side of the shelves with my "Live Laugh Love" Wall hanging on the closet door. 

I just love the look of this quilt on the wall. It gives so much warmth to the room and makes me feel ready to create. 

Now it's hard to not want to spend time in this room. It's warm, it's inviting and I'm ready to create every time I look at it. 

I am so in love with this room! There's a lot of things I'd like to do to make it better, (More shelves!) but for now I'l take what I can get. This is just such a blessing for me after having my crafty stuff boxed up and stored for the last year and a half. I haven't really had a space to go and create and it's been driving me crazy! 

Tell me where do you get to tap into your creativity?
