Who knew a 6 year old would have been so useful when it came to the daunting task of furniture assembly! Three bookcases, a desk and a dresser later, with the help of my Blue, we had the furniture ready to move into the craft room! Now don’t y’all go and turn me into the Fed’s for violating child labor laws! Blue loved it!
Funny story… When Blue was helping me with the first bookcase I said to her “Wow, Blue! You’re like Jesus. He was a carpenter!” To which she replied ” Hum…Jesus made carpet?”
Little by little and piece by piece this room started coming together! I used Billy Bookcases in the corner and far right wall and when placed side by side they really looked like a substantial storage statement! I also found the Expedit bookcase in the “As is” section already assembled! SCORE! The desk was a no brainer to add to this small 9′x9′ space!It floats in the center of the room giving me surface area to work at. I know it looks like a tight fit in there and it is but it’s also efficient and space maximizing.
With a room this small it was all about the planning! I measured and shopped for the space keeping storage in mind. I also knew I wanted white! This space was begging to be lightened up and when it came to blogging I knew I took tons of photos for my tutorials. I’ve been using a white poster board to photograph off of and now I don’t need to! My crisp white desk lends itself perfectly to blogging!
So there you have it! Stage two of my Craft room makeover! The next part is the most exciting and overwhelming! Filling it back up with all my goodies! UGG and YEAH all in the same breath!
Side note: I wish I could have found a great new rug to use in here before I moved in the furniture but alas I never found one! My colors for this room are light aqua blue, white and red. The storage baskets and tools are white, galvanized buckets, and natural grass baskets! Any suggestions on a rug?
