A Peek Inside My Craft Room

You might remember that I recently moved my craft space into my old dining room. Before then I was exiled to the garage and it was steaming hot in summer and cold in winter.

Really not a great environment for crafting in. So when we moved our 8 seater dining table out into our open plan living area since we couldn’t all fit at our 4 seater any more I decided to convert the dining room into my craft room.

It made sense since we wouldn’t be using it for dining any more. I am now using our 4 seater table as my ‘cutting table’.

My craft space also in my office now too since I moved out family computer out of our master bedroom.

I am enjoying being in this space as the area is directly off our main living spaces, so I can be crafting and still be an active part of the family. Before when I was in the garage I felt exiled!

I still have many plans for this space. I currently don’t have any ‘window treatments’ and I also want to install a baby gate simply because my youngest like to grab my pincushion form where ever it is located and run for his life. He is a climber so even when I put it up he still some how seems to get it.

I also need to do something about my table cloth. It is an old vintage sheet, but it really isn’t the look that I would like to go for.

My fabric storage method is also far from ideal,

so I need to get that under control, pronto!


And as you could probably tell from the above photos, I have divided the space using expedit bookcases. The other side is our family room and the kids play area.

Tomorrow I will be sharing with you some of your craft spaces! Be sure to check them out.

  2. Your fabric is so much more organised than mine. You have so many beautiful fabrics in your stash. Some I have and some I want (like the fun with DIck & Jane one)
