My Creative Space ~

I have had some requests for pictures of "where I create" so I am finally listing some pictures. Some things need to be put away, but I decided to go ahead and show the pictures anyways.
I am starting inside the door and we will follow the room around from the right to the left.
Love these for storage ~
I have a white chenille coverlet hanging in the doorway with a cast iron hook that I swag it back with...
Stashes of fabric, lace , binders etc. I tear pretty pictures out of some of my magazines and put them in clear sleeves and add them to a three ring binder....some magazines I will not tear up because they are too special ~
There actually is a antique chair with a white cover on it underneath the pile of aprons....I warned you that everything is not put away...LOL. I love my chippy green little four drawer stand...got it at a garage sale several years ago for $1.00 ....hubby made me a new wooden filing cabinet to replace this metal one, but I have not gotten it painted yet...it is on my "to do" list ~ This door leads outside and we never use it so we would like to take it out hopefully this summer...I just plopped my vintage shoe holder on a fabric covered board until I find a better place for it. It is full of goodies~ I covered my six foot long table with another white chenille spread and store totes underneath it with that are filled with supplies etc. ~
Love this little cubby hole cupboard that I have filled with rick rack and seam bindings ~
An old metal magazine rack that I repainted holds more spools of ribbon and punches and an antique wooden towel rack holds my tissue paper and some ribbons (sorry it looks kinda messy here) ~
My hubby made this pie safe for me years ago and it now holds all kinds of linens and baskets of goodies. I would like to paint it one of these days ~
I hope you enjoyed the "tour" of my creative space. If you can visualize off to the left of this last picture is my computer stand and it is right beside the doorway where we first started...it was too messy to show you! LOL I did forget the picture of my white storage unit on the left side of my pie safe hanging on the wall...you can see just a corner of it here. Blessings ~

Hi Sandi,

What a beautiful and very girly space you have created to do all of your crafting in. I can see myself being perfectly content to spend hours and hours in such a lovely space surround by so many pretty things. Even if it is a little untidy, it still looks perfect to me.

Take care!!

Love the room...my craft room is pink and aqua...will be sharing it with baby soon. Luckily I've found a way to make it work. I don't know...but I think I have more rick rack then you. Gosh...I find bags of vintage rick rack/sewing notions for $2.99 a bag at Savers. I have so much vintage thread too and use it to make my little stuffed kittens.
Once again...love the room!
