T to T Craft Studio

shysueAugust 27, 2007

I want to share my trash to treasure craft studio with you. Everything is made from yard sale, thrift store, and free items. Even the accessories are recycled items. I started from scratch in my son's old room. It took me forever, but with the occasional help of my DH, I finally got the room painted and stenciled, the floor tile laid, the furniture painted, the desk put together and all of the finishing touches put in place. Then came the moving of all the craft supplies from the basement up two stories to the studio. That's when all my potential helpers suddenly had other commitments! LOL That's O.K. because I lost five pounds that week! It was hard work, but I loved doing it and I really am enjoying it.

OMG Sue - "You're Hired" - please come to my home immediately and help me transform my craftroom into something as gorgeous as you have made for yourself. You did an excellent job on your own space, congratulation!

You're so lucky to have a place to call your own! It's just gorgeous! I've got my sewing machine down in the basement, I do my painting in the kitchen(DH can never sit at the kitchen table to eat his cornflakes!), and woodworking in the garage(we can still park the cars in there...so far!). You did a great job decorating it and it must be easy to be creative in there!

I love it. what a great space to create. I love the custom desk, and the hutch and the ribbon workspace. What great ideas. I'm thinking about doing a feature on workspace ideas on my blog or my web site. I may just link over to some of these pics.

You did a wonderful job on your room. You sure found some great pieces and transformed them to fit in beautifully. Very creative too. Love that you have a comfy chair in there too, that is just perfect for browsing through a craft mag or looking at patterns for ideas. Know you will enjoy your room so much. Thanks for sharing with us. Luvs

I love the craft room, shysue! I guess your son better never think of moving back in, huh? I would start working in a room like that and never leave!

Thanks everyone. I had a great time working on it. Everything just seemed to fit together (for once). It doesn't have pretty new furniture in it, which would have been nice, but I was on a lo-o-o-w budget. I am very pleased with it and it is a place I can go for therapy (crafting).LOL
