However I was full of energy to 'get things done' yesterday after psyching myself up for a proactive day of promotions so I decided to make the most of a day stuck at home and set to work organising our small 3rd bedroom in to my craft room / office space. We have been meaning to organise it for months, but after we moved it started to become a bit of a junk room. In all honesty after working so hard for months, spending every spare minute we had to renovate the house to make it habitable, once we actually moved in we ran out of motivation to finish things. The idea of doing anymore DIY or unpacking was exhausting! Our walls have remained bare of pictures, boxes have remained unpacked.........until now that is! I have had enough of the house not feeling like our home so I have set to work making the house more personal.
The craft room has been a dream of mine for over a year, and after spending all day yesterday putting up shelves (by myself I might add *proud DIY face*), unpacking, tidying, arranging and organising it's starting to look just how I want it! I'm so happy to have this space to work and think in, a space free of toddler toys, nappies, dogs and mess! It's somewhere I can have some peace to create, write and plan. It's only a small room, but it's light, airy & perfect to me! I feel very lucky that the Mister has been kind enough to let me adopt this space as my own........he even bought me a bunch of my favourite flowers to celebrate the craft rooms grand opening last night! He's a charmer when he wants to be! ❤
It's my space full of colourful yarn, fabric, and everything that has been deemed too flowery/kitsch for the living room! I love it! There's a comfy sofa by the window which is perfect for sitting in the sunlight knitting and embroidering and I have a desk space for sewing and working at too......what more could I want?!?
Here's how it's looking so far:
