You’re right, it should be both? Since Mr Right and I are currently renting, I don’t want to spend too much money making a space of my own. But there are necessities that make your space functional starting with a sturdy chair.
I found this one at a discount store (last one). I like it because of the contemporary styling and handle on top. I only have room for one chair and this one easily moves around my work area. I bought some spray paint called Ocean, and made it my own. It’s practical & pretty.
Since the room doubles as a guest room, I also needed storage to hide away all my crafty necessities. You’ve probably seen my vintage luggage project, now completed its holding all manner of scrappy tools like my Big Shot and Spellbinders. While another vintage luggage set is hiding away all my sewing supplies.
If you’re like me and have never met a scrapbook element you didn’t like you really should get yourself a printers tray. Look at all the tidbits you can organize at your finger tips. I’ve had these toleware trays for years and find them really helpful to organize a current project on. I can lift it out-of-the-way when I’m not using it. If you have a cupboard full of mismatched vintage collectables, put them to work in your craft room. It’s pretty and practical.
Well Blossom, mommies almost done, time for a little break.
No matter how organized I try to be, sometimes my crafting table gets right “out-of-control’. That’s why my girly vintage french writing desk remains un-cluttered. I’ve reserved this space for some of my favorite things. What desk wouldn’t want a vintage aqua princess phone? This is a great spot for catching up on my favorite crafty magazines or taking a wee break. Pretty and Practical.
