Dreams Do Come True {My Craft Room}

Welcome to Craft Rooms

for Roomspiration Blog Hop & Link Party!

Here I am in my craft room back in March of 2009 during the building of our home.  I was so excited to see the work on the cabinets that day!

This room has been a dream come true.

Here is what it looks like today.

I’m so glad you stopped by!  If you have seen my previous post about my craft room you will notice a few changes.  Here is a short panoramic video of the whole room:


One of the changes/updates…new window treatments!  I have been very busy working on these curtains for the room.  What do you think?

Here is a video highlighting some of the areas in my craft room including how I organize some my supplies:

    You are so lucky to have a craft room. I have a bunch of craft spaces here and there throughout the house but not a room dedicated. Can’t wait to check out the other links. Wish I had a craft room to link up. Got your e-mail and I will spread the word to anyone I know in blogland with a craft room. Have a great day.

    Shan, I absolutely adore your curtains. Your creativity continues to amaze me. I love your recycling or repurposing approach very much. Did you paint the craft room a new color? It looks the best I have evers seen and the videos are priceless. I am so very proud of you. Love, Mom

  18. Wow, what a fantastic craft room. I’m loving the craft desk area, very well laid out for the space! I know you love it! So fun and thank you for hosting!

  19. Monica says:

    Great Job :) The post and your room are wonderful. Although my “craft area” consists of tracking down scissors in drawers, boxes of markers and crayons on random shelfs, and I can never seem to find my glue sticks.

  20. Jacqueline says:

    I’m so jealous of your craft room, mine is a craft and workshop in our basement…..not the best place, but it will do for now. Someday I hope to build a barn-like studio. Like the twilight poster.
