Get Crafty...




Dreamin' in full color

I layed in bed last night day dreamin'...or night dreamin' since it was night and I was in bed...of a place that I could go to and call it all my own.  A place where I was free to create to my hearts content.  A place where I could spread out rolls of paper to draw my ideas out on and places where I could post those "ideas" all over my walls.  A place with "pops" of color everywhere and places for all my fabric and yarn and glitter and glue and colored pens and pencils to neatly be put away.  In my mind I saw this...

I love the turquoise and orange pops of color and the wooden work top and the roll of paper...SQUEAL!  Its like they pulled this picture right out of my head!

Again, I am drawn to the turquoise and orange in this room but I also love the peg board on the walls to hang ribbons from and the little cubbies to store wrapping paper.  Swoon!

Well, we all know that this is Pottery Barn....and when do they ever get it wrong?  Um, like NEVER!  I love all the counter and storage space underneath and the shelf that wraps the top of the wall.  I have visions of baskets filled with all my "goodies" and little chalkboard labels hanging from them.  While this room does not have my favorite colors of turquoise and orange (YET) it still makes my heart get all a flutter.  

In my room I see these things...

I see the counter bar stools and the hardwood floors (which I already have) and then I see this rug covering my floor...

I'm sure you can figure out why...um, perhaps the orange and turquoise???  And the fact that it is just plain FUN! 

This fabric will surely be used to accessories my windows.

Ok, I have to be honest...this fabric was the start of my inspiration for my future craft room...all others came from this. 
I vision the walls in a pale grey...the counter will be a bar stool height with a rustic wood top stained in my all time FAVORITE Minwax Dark Walnut.  The base will either be some sort of industrial metal legs or an assortment of cubbies painted either in white or turquoise.  And this will be on my wall to help me keep track of time as I'm sure countless hours will be lost in this space...

And without a doubt there will be LOTS of this going on in here...

And this...

craft storage

And even some of this...

I love using mason jars to store things in.  I have a bit of an obsession with them actually :)  I'm not ashamed to admit it.  If I see an old blue one with a zinc lid...I MUST OWN IT!

So what do you dream of when you lay in bed at night?  Is your head filled with visions of cubbies and baskets and paper galore?  Tell me your craft room hopes and dreams!  I'd love to hear them!
