Things I Adore Thursdays: Craft Rooms

Image from My Aim is True.

This post is inspired by my very nearly completed back yard craft studio, which I have been waiting to work in for the past six months. Naturally, I've been mentally decorating it for some time now, and my deco plans have changed more than once.

This is the interior of my craft room as it is today -- so close to complete.

I like the idea of making the main wall a magnetic chalk board. It'll be my inspiration board that doesn't require a cork board or pins. And I can't wait for you all to see the colorful chandelier my mother-in-law bought me for the space. It's like candy for the eyes. Eeep!

The Pink Loves Brown studio from the Making it Lovely blog. My previous craft room was this pink color of her studio walls. Lo-ove.

The thing that I really admire about the Pink Loves Brown room, above, is the organization. I'm a sucker for bins and shelves and all-around orderliness. Though I try, I unfortunately don't accomplish this very well in my home, so I don't hold out much hope for the studio.

I like the room from My Aim is True because of how colorful it is. I recently discovered the blog and like it for two reasons: her adorable Boston terrier (I have a gassy one of my own.) and her spunky animal rights attitude.

And that's it for the things I adore today. Check back soon for a handy, dandy tutorial on how to make a rubber stamp, as well as for a peek at the latest Petite Minx jewelry.

Congratz on being close to completion on the crafting space. Those are some really cute rooms you're using for inspiration! I love how colorful they are. When I get my craft room set up, I already know what furniture I'm going to use, maybe it will help you get a bit more inspiration for the space as well? Because this site has some really good storage furniture that might help you stay organize and keep the craft space looking nice. <3

I have a craft room now. I can't decide what to do with it!
