Excited about my new crafting room

My husband and I are currently in the process of buying our first home. Yesterday it finally clicked in my head that I'm going to be a homeowner. My favorite part? I'm going to have my own crafting room! I am very excited about currently my Cricut and all my other supplies are taking over our dining room. I'm sure some of you can relate to this in one way or another.

Here's what my craft room in our new house currently looks like. It is located on the lower level...which currently is very roughed in. This is super exciting, because it is basically a blank slate. I'm excited to start from scratch and make an awesome room where I can let my creativity run wild!

Obviously, the first thing to go is the dark paint color. The room doesn't have a window and adding a window isn't an option due to the grade of the land around the house. A lighter paint color and lots of lighting will go a long way, I think.

On the right side of the picture, you can see part of a very roughed in closet. This closet will be filled with lots of storage...not only for my crafting, but also for the rest of the house (this house sucks for storage space!).

We're not moving for a little over a month, but I'm getting my creative juices flowing now so that I can be ready to jazz this place up once we move in :)

I would love to hear about YOUR crafting rooms :) Tell me what your favorite part of it is....what color you choose for the walls...did you stick with a theme?....I want to know everything! I might even use some of your ideas for my own room ;)

Have a great Monday everyone!


  1. That is so awesome!! Congratulations!! :) We're in the process of buying too, and while I won't have my own craftroom in the new house, I will have a craft closet that I'm excited about! :) (there are two walk in closets in the master and since I am not a girl of many clothes and shoes-and since the hubby agreed-one of them will be for my crafting) :)

  2. congrats on your a big space for your crafting stuff craft area is in the kitchen.there is a spot where the breakfast table goes and i decided it was big enough to have my scrap stuff folding table fits well and then there is a bench which holds my shelfs.i can only craft standing thats how much space is left between the table and the hubby says to be careful that grease from the stove doesnt land on the your new home.
