New Craft Room - From Scratch!
[color=#FF0080:1g9ci1xa]Hi Everyone, I hope you are well. I haven't been on here for AGES, I've missed it! We have recently moved house and when we have decorated the bedroom (should only be a couple of weeks!), we are then moving onto my craft room. I just wondered if any of you had any pictures of your craft rooms that you wanted to share? Maybe I could pinch some inspiration from you! ;) I would like a little area where my sewing machine can be out permanently and another bench/work surface area where I can scrap/card make with my cricut to hand. And lots of nice storage for all those lovely bits that I to start using instead of touching and looking at them and then putting them away again! :D :D :D :D :D I'm KNOW I"m not the only one who does that with certain things! Thanks for your time an help, Nicki[/color:1g9ci1xa]

Re: New Craft Room - From Scratch!
http://craftystorage.blogspot.co.uk/ This blog has loads of ideas for craft rooms and storage. When I did my craft room we converted the garage and I used old furniture painted white and some items from Ikea and a local ex catalogue shop. Good luck - I'm sure whatever you do will be lovely Sharon

Re: New Craft Room - From Scratch!
I have recently redone my craft room after my ceiling had to be replaced. I used mostly Ikea furniture and am thrilled with it. There should be pictures on here somewhere. Will try and track them down for you. Good luck with the planning. It took me ages to decide what I needed and I still can't find everything!
I really appreciate all your lovely comments on my projects. Your feedback is very important to me.

Re: New Craft Room - From Scratch!
The pics are under the post 'My new revamped craft room. Almost done'. Dated April 9th. The Expedit unit on it's side and castors, is an ideal height for me to die cut etc.it is great to have the machines out all the time. I use the small desk area for my Cricut projects and the big desk for my main work area. I would love an area for my sewing machine to be out permanently too, but don't have the space. I tend to use the small desk for sewing as the big one is a bit bouncy when the machine is going. For big sewing projects I use the dining room table.Hope this helps. I trawled the Internet too looking for ideas and decided I needed to live in USA and have a huge room to play with!

Re: New Craft Room - From Scratch!
Sorry I havent got any pics of Mine.. Its always a mess!!! But what I suggest is that you take your time!!! and dont let your o/h rush you into a decision!! (like i did he wanted to crack on).. grrr.. Im now Slowly Revamping mine again... Id Realistically Like a Much bigger room... To have my Sewing machines set up all the time too... But what ever you do Please Get in Lots and lots of Electrical Wall sockets!! and Lighting is Important!!! and a tip is Dont have your waste bin Near your work area!!! Im certain I have dropped Good bits or Items in the bin by mistake and thrown them out!! or Ive got gremlins!!!! as I cant find that new rubber stamp Ive only just bought!!!
I've learned that even when I have pains, I don't have to be one.

[/quote:t1efgm8t] Its an addiction! But I'm going to start using my 'special' bits rather than just looking at them and then putting them back away!
