Crafty space.....

I meant to post these pics of my new office/craft room a while ago.  I took this first picture just after I unpacked and organized everything and since then I've added a few more things.  But this is the general idea.  Ohhhhh its sooo nice having everything in its place again.  Its been a complete transformation.  The walls used to be a light neutral brown with an old cherry finished desk and credenza...ugly, boring...BUT did the trick!  We took advantage of having everything packed up from the flood and repainted the room.  The water damage ruined the old furniture so lucky for me I got to go shoppin' for some new stuff.  I wanted a bright happy space and have to say I am more productive since I spend alot more time there now! 

 I picked up these cubed modular storage pieces on sale at Michaels.  There are a ton to choose from and you can stack them how ever you want.  They work GREAT for all my crafty stuff.  Everything has its place, tons of nooks and drawers and slots etc...I've yet to hang some art on the large wall....
 I found this cute little wall decor idea from Umbro.  I like the fact you can change up what you want to display on each little hanger.  I hung some of my most favourite cards.
 Ive since added a bright orange clock to the left of the flowers (also by Umbro)
 I love this little corner for my daughter to get crafty, just like mom!  My favourite part is the old vintage folding table.  Fits perfectly in the corner. 
 I found this shabby window frame/hook piece at an antique shop on one of our Sunday antique outings.  It was only 5 bucks!  I was soooo happy!  Its the perfect place for my daughters crafty aprons! 
One of my other favourite things about the room is the curtians.  I searched forever online at Hawthorne Threads and finally decided on this awesome Amy Butler print.  I love it!
 So thats it!  I always love to see how other people decorate and organize their crafty spaces, I thought I'd share mine!  Have a great night!  Thanks for stopping by!
