Home Tour...The Craft Room

.
It's time for the next installment of my home tour.   Today I am sharing my craft room.  The first stop was my screen porch and can be found here.  The next stop was my kitchen and can be found here.
.
My craft room is located in my basement and is the only room in my house with out windows.  I really wish it had natural light but I still feel very lucky to have a space completely dedicated to crafting & sewing!
.
.
The table is an old architect's drafting table I got from work a few years back. It really needs to be refinished but I still love it!  The architectural firm I work for is 85 years old and I think it's neat to have something that was actually used once by an architect at my firm - back when drawings were still done by hand! 
.
.
The shelving unit was an entertainment center from IKEA that I used in my last house. I was glad to be able to put it to use in my craft room! The drafting table sits where the TV used to be.
.
.
I keep an old TV in here - you just never know when you might want to watch a movie and sew at the same time!
.
.
My wrapping paper and ribbon wall rack hangs on one wall.  You can see how I made it by clicking the picture on my sidebar.  The drafting table makes a great spot for wrapping presents.  It's usually covered with wrapping paper and other supplies during the entire month of December.  Come to think of it, the whole floor is usually covered in Christmas paper and ribbon then too!
.
.
The paint color is Benjamin Moore; Golden Straw 2152-50.
.
.
The old metal table came from my Grandparent's basement.
.
.
I love this "Get Excited and Make Things" print.  The best part about it is that it was free! I found this print from a post by Catherine @ Peace Love Sweater.   To print your own copy go here.

Thanks for touring my craft room!

What a great spot to create things! It's so organized and clean. My craft room is such a mess!! I really need to reorganize the room but I just can't find the time. Seeing your tidy space and helped give me some much needed motivation. Thanks!

Ashley Tremaine said...

Courtney said...

Love this! Watching an old movie while sewing sounds lovely.

Elphie said...

It's a great room! Thank you for sharing. I was wondering what supplies you keep under the television and in your plastic cart by the table.

Cathy said...

Your space is beautiful! What a creative, relaxing place to be. My favorite part is that old drafting table! It's gorgeous. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Can't wait to see the rest of the tour!

Tashia said...

Jealous as always! I would give anything to have a room for all my projects. Maybe that's why it takes me soooo long to complete them...or it could be my 15 month old!

Madigan at madiganmade said...

Wow, you have your own room. Love the organization ideas. Going to check out the wrapping paper idea right now!

Melissa said...

I love it!

Jenny @ Anything Pretty said...

Love this space! It is so nice to have a space dedicated to crafting so you can leave things a mess when you are in the middle of something and then just come back to it later.....at least that is what I do. All the little touches (like the artwork and that table) are my favorite!

lorenabr said...

Love your craft room! It's so great to have a space dedicated to crafting and creating!

barbara@hodge:podge said...

What a gorgeous space. I am jealous! I sew on my dining room table. I used to have room like that a few houses ago but now the kids each need a room of their own, so I had to give up mine! Love the table, I worked for a engineering firm in university when I was considering architecture (met my husband and that went out the window ;) and I remember my job was adding the titles to schematic drawings by hand on tables just like that! Fun that you have one!

Julie said...

Love your star ruler! The whole room is great, actually!

The Cottage Mama said...

LOVE it!! I just linked up my craft room tour on Tatertots and Jello too. Yours is definitely MUCH bigger. I love all the little details and the fact that is seems nice and spacious. Great colors and the "Keep Calm" sign is one of my favorites.

Have a great weekend,
Lindsay

Simply. Wonderful! I feel very blessed to have a crafting space as well. This one is very cute! I love the print "Get Excited and Make Things."

Thank you for including Roomspiration in your Link Ups today. Hope you will come back and visit Family Brings Joy again soon!

Anna@Directions Not Included said...

I came back again to look and I just have to say, I really love your table. As the daughter of an architect and someone who considered that as a profession for many years, I love the touch of history in the space.

Frieda said...

I just love your room, it is so neat and tidy. As a full time quilt artist I would like to make one suggestion, while it is so nice to see all your thread colors, they will collect dust. You might be happier putting them in a container that you can see through.
Love your blog.

My Piece of the World said...

I love the photos of your craft room - it is so clean, organized and peaceful...the perfect atmosphere to spark creativity! Very impressed!

EmilyJean said...

Hi! I know this has been up for a while, but I just found it. I love your craft space! I live in a teeny apartment with not even a shelf for my crafting! Your room is an inspiration!
