I’m sharing my inspiration wall redo today and it just occurred to me that I’ve never shared a good, proper craft room tour after we made it over a couple of years ago. I’ll have to work on that. Of course, it means I’ll have to straighten it up. I know-I’m always saying that.
What’s that saying about a messy desk being a sign of creative genius?
When Thom and I were painting and making over the craft room a couple of years ago, we found this cool bulletin board for $1.50 at a church yard sale. Score! I loved the thought of an inspiration wall over my craft desk so I painted the frame to match the other colorful elements in the room and we attached it to the wall over the desk. There was a lot of space to fill, which I did quickly.
It got messy. Real messy. Real quick. I started out by adding things that inspired me-dyed coffee filters totally tickled my fancy two years ago and I made them like crazy and put them EVERYWHERE in the craft room. Same for paper pinwheels. I’m easily pleased. The space became less and less inspiring and more of an in-your-face reminder that I can be messy. Ahem.
Inspiration Wall Redo
You know when you have a brilliant strike of inspiration and a suddenly know how you want to transform a space but you hesitate to bring it up because you just changed the space a couple of years prior? Happen to you, too? Luckily, Thom is agreeable to most anything I want to do and he was more than happy to take down that bulletin board, fill in the holes, sand them for me, and repaint the space. Super nice, right? Have to love him! For the record, I had planned on doing all that myself but he’s super happy to jump in and make my vision happen for me.
I found a cute twinkle light photo display when I was home in Michigan and I clipped some fun family photos over a monthly dry erase board I picked up at TJ Maxx. I love how the frame forms a little shelf so I added some bottles of glitter and a cute owl that Thom transformed for me.
He also built a shelf so that I can watch Netflix while I work or craft. Those are more dyed coffee filter roses I just couldn’t part with. (hahahaha) There’s a cute Heidi Swapp Hashtag Marquee (affiliate link) alongside a polka dotted clipboard. I’m loving gold at the moment and these are elements that can easily be changed out when I want something new.
My Work Bench Craft Station
I’ve been using Thom’s Craftsman tool bench for a few years as my craft table. I love the galvanized steel top and the deep drawers.
Recently, Wayfair asked to share my craft station work bench on their blog. I was thrilled to share even though it meant I had to clean off my desk and make it look presentable-Ha!
