Last week I was given the honour of guest posting over on Stylizimo blog about my favourite topic - craft rooms! I wanted to share something that ALWAYS inspires me and motivates me (most of the time) to organise and have a tidy craft room. Recently I found some images that have made me want to do some more decorating! So off we go ^_^
Messy Jesse Sewing Room - http://messyjessecrafts.blogspot.co.uk
I featured this lovely sewing room on my own blog at the beginning of 2012 as I believe it is quintessentially British in its lovely floral style and it is great inspiration for me to organise my fabrics for sewing and selling on my vintage fabric shop ^_^ Ive actually decided to spend either £130 in ikea or £55 in ikea! depending on whether or not I go for drawers or dividers.. I can't decide :p
I also need a desk (like the amazing photos of Facil y Sencillos craft room above) Badly. My current set up in my own craft room is that my little work space also (rarely) doubles as a spare bedroom for guests. So my chair is a sofa bed and my desk is a rather small folding picnic table. It's a very small space so I'm actually now contemplating removing a BIlly bookcase and getting some nifty handwork going.. although I'm not sure who my carpenter will be!
This is my wee work space! It is such a small space I don't actually have the room to stand back and take a decent photo! lol My camera lens isn't wide enough but I might get some cell phone photographs when I tidy up. Because currently it looks like it has imploded ^_^
This genius idea comes from Martha Stewart.. of course. How could it not? The woman is a genius. I love it!! I wish that I was a DIY wood working marvel. I would have the most amazing craft space. Seriously. Im not though. Not at all! I may need a drop leaf table if my other carpentry endeavours don't work out!
If you have any hobby rooms or craft rooms I would love you to stop by the blog and leave me a direct link to your post or photo page in the comments section for a possible feature on heart handmade uk. Or if you have the photos on flickr submit them to the group.
