I am so excited because after months of deliberation and my reluctance for change, we decided to tear down our spare bedroom and make it a craft room. My hubby has wanted me to do that for quite some time, but I loved the look of that room and hated to take it for myself. With that being said, trying to sew on my kitchen table and taking the machine up and down constantly was getting to be such a chore. Making my cards and paper projects down in the basement with virtually no light and no electric in that part of the basement has become a huge problem too. So even though I feel I’m being selfish by taking that space, I finally agreed with my better half that our spare room would be best served by making it my craft room. Honestly, we used the spare room once in 18 months, so it really was wasted space up until now.
We spent part of the weekend moving the bed out of the room and packing up my craft supplies to move upstairs. I decided to keep the dresser, night stands & small shelves because I like them so much and thought they would be perfect for storage. I hope they work because I’d rather have those than my Iris carts and miscellaneous other bins and totes. We’ll just have to play it by ear and see.
We would have progressed more with the move but I had to take Sunday afternoon off to watch the Rams/Redskins game. I’m happy to report the Rams won with a not too shabby score of 30 to 16. Oh, did I fail to mention that I love football and the Rams?
Anyway, back to the subject at hand, my craft room. I am excited about having a dedicated space just for me, but I think I’m most excited about having my sewing machine at the ready to make the many projects that have either been started or waiting to be cut and sewed. Having light to see what I’m working on will be such a blessing. So without any further discussion, I’m off to get everything moved and in place and then I’ll share pictures of the before and after once I’m finished. As always for me, it will be a work in progress and I’m sure I’ll shift things around many times until it feels right and works well.
A very special thanks to my hubby of 40+ years for all of his encouragement, love and help each and every day. I love you honey!!!
