Progress Report: Craft Room

The craft room is still a LONG way from being set up, but I’ve made a few steps in the right direction.  I shared the closet shelving I installed in this post.  I have also painted over the neon green wall color in this room, as well as the connected powder room.  I wasn’t too picky about the color, so when I found two almost-full cans of grey paint left by the previous owners, I popped them open and started painting.  The color is Porpoise by Behr, and boy did it stink-for weeks!  I’ve gotten spoiled buying Sherwin Williams paint as of late.  Once on the walls, it was darker than I expected and has just a hint of purple in the undertones, but with all of the white paneling on the bottom to brighten the room and the fact that it’s just a craft room, not to mention I didn’t have to buy paint, I am happy overall.

The overall room is still a mess, partially because it is on the way to the storage part of the basement and therefore catches a lot of stuff in limbo.  My plan is to put pegboard on the walls above the chair rail to hang all of my crafting and sewing supplies.  I would like to get a couple of six foot tables that don’t fold in the middle for crafts and sewing.  Also, I would like to get wall lamps like these for around the room to keep everything up off the tables and floors.

I painted the powder room the same color.  The mirror frame is painted Meadow Green by  Rust-oleum.  I have my eye on replacing the ridiculous light fixture in here with one like this.

Here is the real estate listing picture of this room – the previous owners used it as a play room:

I think Habitual Rearranger fits me well because I am never settled on designs, colors, or placement of items in our home. I drive Bradley crazy sometimes, but I keep figuring out new and better ways of doing things! I am not striving to be profound or an expert on anything in this blog. It is simply a way to keep a record of all of my adventures - home and life - for me to reference and also for my loved ones to follow along. I am a born and raised Georgia girl. I don't think I would enjoy living anywhere except the south. Bradley and I spent six and a half years in our starter home and are now in our forever home, a 1970s traditional two story brick house. I love getting into all kinds of projects around our house, and I try to document all the dirty details here if for no one else than for me.
