Aahhhh! A new craft room….with windows! Ok. So this isn’t my craft room. It belongs to dwndestiny on flicker. But isn’t it devine? It’s neat, open, light filled and real. Many of the rooms I’ve seen look like they’ve been photoshopped, cropped and not a glue gun in sight. Not what I call real life.This is my actual craft room. OMG! What the heck! It looks extra special today because I had to pull stuff out of the closet and move tables around in order for the exterminator to get into the attic spaces to set traps for the little critters living up there.
It doesn’t always look this bad. (Now I can’t actually find a picture to prove otherwise, so you’ll just have to take my word for it. 😁) I am joyously moving my space from the upstairs, windowless room to here in the basement. It has always been a possibility, but knowing how messy I get when in my creative mode, there was no way I could move into this room with no doors. I knew that “as is” this room would never work. The room from which I am taking this picture is where I have women over every Wednesday night for bible study. I’m thinking it would be 1. Embarrassing for them to see it in its usual creative state and 2. Distracting for anyone. The problem has been the arch of the doorway. Pretty as it is, to close it requires completely re-doing the framing to make it square or some out of the box thinking.
My desire for windows has overcome any excuses. The solution took some research, but I got it!Remodelholic gave me the perfect idea…Barn Doors!Today Kevin is installing beautiful sliding doors. I’ll be able to create in sunshine, then roll those doors closed when I’m done for the day.
I can’t tell you how excited I am for this change. Check this out!TaDa!! Aren’t they just to die for?This is looking them from inside of the room. BEAUTIFUL! I love the black hardware on the cream doors. Maybe one day I’ll get some cool looking handles, but for now I’m in love just the way they are.
I am so excited Friends! I can’t wait to show you all the crazy things I’ve got planned for this room. Thanks Kevin for doing such a great job!
And thanks to you for dropping by
