So, I have a 4-day weekend coming up.  I am torn between tackling the dining room or the craft room (or ambitiously, both…or should I say…insanely).

With that being said, my OCD has kicked in.  Looking up ideas, brainstorming out what I like and don’t like and then sprinkling…I mean POURING in a whole lot of reality.

Pinterest.

God how I LOVE to HATE you.

You are NOT reality.  You are as real as the lottery.  Especially when it comes to designing and organizing craft room spaces.

However, like the bikini body I’ll never have…I WANT YOU!!!  The GORGEOUS, LAVISH, PERFECT room for nothing but hours of blissful crafting.  I mean, in my dream world…lovely light, perfect containers situated just Martha Stewart perfect. The cozy, beautiful sitting chair where I can count the hours watching out the window while putting the finishing touches on the creations that I can share with the world.

POUR ON THE REALITY!!!

This is a slight example of full work mode currently…not TERRIBLE…but not the room of my dreams!

I have a closet full of house repair products the previous tenants left.  Walls that are a mess.  Holes, a sorta finished newer wall (which is actually going to go bye bye) and stacks of stuff everywhere.  Ahhh, the story of every craft person out there…stacks of STUFF.

So, how do you get to that perfect craft room?  I have found lots of tricks and tips for organization…anyone?  Input?  Wanna share you favorite picks of your craft space???  HELP ME????

The one thing I have working for me is I do have AMAZING light…and it’s a good sized room.

Note:  I wouldn’t recommend spray painting in the house.

And I get to see the most amazing sunsets!

Check out those walls!  I actually might keep the idea and just recreate it…I wish they wouldn’t have gotten lazy and painted over the hand created border!

And the dogs love hanging out with me when I am up there!

Check out the light!!!

So, take a second….share a pic.  A thought.  A helpful hint that helped make your craft space perfect!  As soon as I start, there will be before and after pics coming!!  Can’t WAIT!!!

Peace out peeps.
