Craft Room Shenanigans

Well we’ve been in our house for almost two months and I’m already rearranging.

I was inspired by Centsational Girl’s beautiful office.

I wanted to do this from the beginning in my craft room after seeing hers but I didn’t think it’d be a pretty view from the outside, seeing the back of my computer.

Before I show you what it looks like now, here’s how my room started out.

But I couldn’t get the desk-in-front-of-window arrangement out of my head.

So yesterday I decided to move things around to see how I liked it.



I LOVE it!


I can’t get over how much I love my homemade starburst mirror and how it pops off of the blue paint.


I wanted to share too the ultimate work station.

Why, you ask? What’s so great about it?

Well, my Grandma gave me the cart. It was her tv stand but she got a new one. I honestly thought I’d paint it but didn’t know what I was going to do with it.

I decided not to paint it (shocking I know!) and wanted to see how it’d work out as a work station.

My sewing machine is on top, Cricut in the middle, and the most used supplies below.

So on to why it’s so great. It’s on wheels!

I used to hate having to “lug out” my machines. But now, they’re on wheels and ready to move around the room to where I need them. Seriously, when I hemmed my curtains I wheeled the machine over to the window so I had a worktop and didn’t have to take down my curtains.


Now that my computer is right next to my Cricut, I don’t even have to move it, I just plug it right in!

Nothing has to be taken off its shelf to be used. It’s wonderful!

Thanks again GMa!


Oh and don’t ya like my storage boxes? They were $14 each at Homegoods and I love them. They fit perfect, have handles on the side, a fun pattern on top and are a really roomy size.


Yay for free changes, rearranging!

Oh and once we get a new living room rug, I’ll be moving my gray flowered one into this room for kind of a “sitting room effect”.

And remember how David hated that gray nailhead trim chair I bought?

Well now he loves it! He comes in when I’m on the computer and sits there to chat. And when he has something important to discuss with me he tells me to sit down in “the chair” so we can have our conversation. Ha. He’s hilarious.


  1. Her office IS pretty amazing!! I love yours! It looks amazing and the sewing cart is perfect!!! Good job!


  2. I'm normally not a huge fan of blue, but I am in LOVE with your wall color! And her office was the inspiration for my desk area too, I love the way yours turned out :)

    1. Thank you so much Jamie! It ended up being my favorite color in the house. BM Hale Navy if you're wondering! :-) I'm heading over to check out your blog. Thanks for stopping by!!
