Welcome Creative Bloggers! So glad to have you visit. And if you want to see some more amazing spaces visit my friends over at ‘Where Bloggers Create’ Blog Party by clicking on the picture.
Thank you Karen Valentine for being my kick in the pants to help me start on my nightmare room. It’s been the hardest room I’ve yet done. Nothing too fancy. Didn’t even have time to paint it. Mostly it was all about De-cluttering and Finding the Floor. And creating a space where I could, um, can you guess? CREATE! I even managed to add in a space for my little girls to visit their artistic skills as well.
Just a reminder of what the disaster area looked like around 3 weeks ago. Not even a path to the door. You had to climb mountains.
And from a slightly different angle – still every inch a disaster.
So after blood, sweat and tears. O.K. there was no blood involved but a lot of tears. Even carted off a huge truckload of trash to the junkyard, and several boxes to the Thrift Store.
Are you ready?
Here’s the after. And Wow! Look, you can even see the floor.
And from a different view.
The Girls Corner…
And guess what – I probably spent less than $100 on the whole room.
I love my farm girl curtains. First curtains I’ve sewed in 10 years. Towel hooks instead of curtain rod holders. Free stick from the yard and material from my huge stash. Doesn’t the stick just yell country girl?
Took the piles and piles of the stuff that survived the sort and…
Ready for my redneck moment?
A friend got me some crates which I spent some money to spray paint. I didn’t want black crates. Bought a few pieces of shelving.
Loaded them up.
Thank you thrifted sheets and Velcro!
Used the left over spray paint from the crates to refinish an old abused storage center.
Then took some extra material after sewing a cover for my shelves. Took that little bit of fabric and cut it out to fit the front of my drawers. Slapped the material on with another favorite Modge Podge.
I think they look great together.
I loved being able to display some of my little creations and treasures instead of having them buried in piles of clutter.
I know you’ve already figured this out by my color scheme was hydrangea blue and lavender.
And when I’m not crafting on the tables I can show off some of my vintage linens like this lovely lilac trimmed hand-embroidered cutwork tablecloth I got for less than $15 at an antique mall.
Now that the room is mostly done. The girls and I can’t stay out of it.
I love that I finally have a calm place to go a create dreams and make memories with my girls.
Can’t wait to invite some of my friends over so we can get some quality girl craft bonding time in.
Thanks for visiting.
