I love the bright and cheery look of the red and aqua colors, and have decided to model the colors of my room after this. The walls will be painted aqua. The old carpeting will be pulled up, discarded and replaced with a red epoxy floor for easier maintenance. I will be making handmade curtains (and even counter curtains to hide unsightly stored stuff) in these beautiful fabrics courtesy of Michael Miller fabric:
In short, the whole room will be rearranged. The cabinets and one set of counter tops will be moved to the opposite facing wall for insulation purposes. The doorway entrance will be moved to the end of the room to give me more wall space (courtesy of my talented handyman husband, Michael. :) ) In addition, a short dividing wall will be built near the entrance way. This wall will be multipurpose as it will contain another counter top and additional storage space.
In addition, I found this nifty idea from The Polka Dot Closet's blog on using slat walls for extra storage, so we're installing these, too. How flipping cool is this?
Last, you can see what I am dealing with, here are some "before" pics of my craft room. Yes, it's embarrassing, but not for long!!!
Stay with me as I provide updates as to the craft room remodel and turn my frog of a craft room into a handsome prince. :)
