Making my "Crap" room into a functioning "Craft" room!

Ok, by no means is this my dream sewing room, but I live in a 3 bedroom house and share this space with my husband/the office/memorabilia/hockey pictures/ and more. The pictures you see to the left of my "desk" are hockey pictures of my husband that line the walls. He is a retired minor league hockey player and has tons of pictures. At times (during my dysfunctional periods pictured below) he wishes I did not intrude in his space. I wish the same about him and his "stuff" all the time. I dream of what I could do to that room! Really I just want to move and when we do, he is out in the garage! Ha!

Do you think I should paint the big B bright pink to stand out?

So here are pics of the before! It is a shame. Do not judge just be happy I made it out of there alive and I'm somewhat organized again.


I made these labels really just to add something to these old bottles I had.

... and I wonder why I can't keep it clean! Just blame it on this sweet face!!

Now it's time to tackle the closet with all my fabric! How do I let it get this way! Probably cause I can close the door!

Okay here are a few of my dream sewing rooms/office/crafts! I mean really! This is all I want when I grow up! I think I would love creating again! I think being in the space I'm in is really putting a damper on that. I think that can happen with any hobby you have that then becomes your JOB! It kinda takes the fun out of it but then again I'm just happy I have a talent that can be used and produce income while I stay at home with my one and only love!
This would be anyones dream space. I love the mix of styles of furniture.

An organized space like this would take a few days to create but it would be so well worth it! You would always know where your items are.
