Hello there- My craft space is colorfully delicious AWESOME.. (well i think so anyway) mainly because I did it on such a super cheap budget.. keep reading. Not to mention I love my new creative space its safe to say I will {LIVE} in this space-HA.

SO as mentioned, I AM MOST THRILLED WITH THIS PROJECT BECAUSE IT COST ME AROUND $24.00 BUCKS TOTAL!!! WHY “?” because I shopped my home! YEP’ that good Ol’ saying “Use what you have!” I cleaned and re-furbished pickle jars wrapped in rope, baby food jars to hold buttons and brads, I used what I had.  I also covered my huge craft table in a cut to fit hemmed drop “flannel” cloth, that I hot glued to the table using velcro. 
The white cubby shelf holding recycled baby food jars, my grandfather made me and I have had it for several years.I added paper to the back splash and filled it with the baby food jars.
I LOVE LOOKING at all the stuff and colors it truly inspires me. Not to mention looking at my children whom also inspire me.I created this space because I don’t have a spare craft room. THIS SO WORKS. Its a fairly large cubby space in our master bedroom. So I just really want you all to know, that you don’t have to feel bad if you don’t have a spare room for your crafting space. You can use a closet, a  nook, a corner of a room, etc.  

covering my eyes in shame…. 
and I am sure as most things go for me… I will keep tweaking things until I feel its flawless. 😉


 I covered a frame I had in the home with rolled rosettes that were hot glued on.

and I re-furbed the  mannequin.  She is to hang scissors, tape measures, etc.

-you can also find the cute {Keep calm and get your craft on} sign at FunkyPolkadot Giraffe here 
and the cute “cre.ate” vinyl from Say it on the wall here.

-the burlap tags that have sew on it, bulletin sticky board, mini wrapped canvases, calender with chalk paper header, and the cubby back splash paper are all from Canvas Corp

THANK YOU MUCH for stopping in

  2. Very cool Jen. Your place before was (uhhhh not so inspiring), but your after is INCREDIBLE, and I can’t believe you did it for practically nothing, WOW.

    What did you do for that huge desk? I love it.

    The entire wall is covered in cuteness, I just love how fun, bright, and happy it makes me.

    You did a great job girl.

  9. That is awesome! I love it all – especially the price!! I’m sure you will have a lot of fun using that space. 🙂

    How’s the new baby doing? I’m not sure if I ever got around to telling you that I had mine on April 27. A boy. 🙂 xoxo

  10. This is SO pretty! But my favorite part about it is its functionality – the big table. I finally have my own craft room but because my table it only two feet by two feet, it doesn’t help much, and I usually end up spreading out across the house anyway. That table will be so useful to have!

  11. love how this turned out! so bright and colorful and fun 🙂

  12. Wow! It looks awesome! Can you come do my space next 🙂

  13. So jealous!! I love it.
