sewing spaces- craft room redo complete!

studio space reveal- sewing room/craft roomI’ve been working on putting my craft room/sewing room together since the first of the year (with a February break to go visit Jord and crew)…


…and I finished it up just in time to share as part of the 2 little hooligans “Sewing Spaces” series. I’m loving the chance to peek into some of my favorite bloggers work spaces- be sure to check it out!

my sewing space- craft room reveal

my sewing space craft room revealBack to the sewing room- I pretty much love this space, y’all. Even though my personal style definitely tends towards girly (I love pink! And all things shiny!), I don’t often have a chance to go girly in my decor choices.

The Kid’s Craft Cart (aka IKEA rolling cart) is filled with crayons, markers, colored pencils, paint, and every different kind of paper imaginable. Yesterday Burke was even making hand drawn ‘invitations’ for his birthday party while I worked. I love having this space to work side by side with the Smooches!

sewing_spaces_revealI know I already shared some of the DIY tutorials (the polka dot cork letters, the glitter covered art hangers, the fur topped IKEA stools, the fabric covered bulletin board), and I still have a couple to share. Did I mention that I am loving this space?

I’d love to know- if you could fill a space with things you love, what would make the cut?

    It’s beautiful!!! I love it! The kid cart is great. I have a tub in my closet full of things jace can help himself to and he loves it. Do you feel like your work is just better when sewn/crafted in such a great space?

      Thanks Jill! I totally work better in a pretty space (in fact, I work better when my house is clean too- less to do lists swirling around my OCD mind- haha!). :) And I love it that you have craft stuff for Jace too- isn’t it fun to see them creating???

    Love, love, love. I found your blog this past weekend when I was looking up Anthropologie bedding DIYs…beautiful! I love your taste, style, and spirit. Your scripture verses are beautiful–did you make them yourself or purchase them somewhere? I normally scratch mine out on random cardstock and stick them around my apartment, but you’ve inspired me! I am looking forward to following you two sisters and enjoying your gifts :-)

      Kara, what a sweet comment! The Lord has a little theme that He is teaching me right now- that HE is better than anything else. The verses are all reminders of that… I just put them in photoshop. I should put them up as free printables as well. :) And I have index cards with verses everywhere too- haha. :)

      Thanks Suz! Of course, day to day it isn’t quite this tidy, especially since the kids are often in there working with me (haha!), but it cleans up nicely. :)

    Your table is exactly what I’m looking for for my space. Can you tell me who makes it? Great job! Your room is awesome! Thanks!
