Craft Room

After over ten years of using this room as the kids playroom, 
they outgrew all the toys, so it was time to change over this space into my Craft Room.
It's the space over the garage and measures 13 feet by 19 feet. 







                                     We removed the carpet and had this laminate installed.





Yes! I built my craft table all by myself!! And you can too!! 










Just a couple of quick acrylic paintings I painted for my new craft room.

    1. Hi BeadsByCelleste ! Thank you ! Thank you! Ummm, as my sister Stacy would say, "It looks like a craftnado went off in here". So it definitely does not look like this, like ever, ha:) I just happened to take pictures first. I usually clean the craft table when I can no longer see any brown table top, and who would have thought 4 feet by 6 feet could be too small?? I kid, usually just clean it after each project:)

  6. How did you make the table... looks like you have a thin piece and a thicker piece of wood...did you ask a lumber yard to cut you a thick piece?? Also, did you glue it on the storage bin container?? PS your room is gorgeous, I am modeling my new room after yours a little bit :)

    1. Hi Ashley! Sorry I have been ill and away from my blog for so long! Here is the link to my DIY craft table tutorial:http://scrappyleigh.blogspot.com/2013/09/diy-craft-table-tutorial.html
      and you can also just click on the sidebar pic called DIY Craft Table Tutorial, and its all explained there. My 3/4 inch birch plywood top is pretty heavy, so i did not glue it, but it just rests atop the bookcase storage. Thank you so much for your kind comments and good luck with your room!!

    1. Hi Cindy@Scrap-obsessed.blogspot.com,
      My room is 13feet x 19 feet and I used 1/4" graph paper to draw out the furniture and table in the room. This way I could move pieces around on paper and ensure a 3 foot clearance around all four sides of my custom table. congrats on the new house and new room!
      Thanks for your comment, Leigh
