I had a very small quilt and craft room and just kept tossing things into it, so small I did not want to work in there except to put things in there, I am sure others understand on where I am coming from for sure!!!!!
I was in the process of making a den into our larger bedroom and then decided, NO, I needed a bigger room so why not change the rooms, make the small room the den...yes...so that is what I did!!!
Please enjoy my pictures of the old room and redone room!!! I enjoyed it a lot but a couple months went by and we ended up selling our home and there goes the new room!! Still wanted to share this with all and it meant so much to me......yet, here in our new place...duplex, I am going to make another NEW room in our cellar and will be better and bigger for sure, pictures to follow this winter for sure......so in the meantime, enjoy what I did and maybe can give some of you ideas:
Old Room Pic: 9 x 12 size
New Room starting with Bookcase and work around this
Using shelves for my books, they stand but I did this with them to hold books or can turn them over for a shelf on top, bought them at Michaels for $10 each
Counter top bought at Menards and shelf over window to hold curtain online, good way to use space
Storage on top of old chest, storage for stamps, etc. of craft supplies, chest draws hold heavy material
Old gun cabinet and my DH made shelves for it, his grandpa made it, see the frog handles!!
Final layout of room and had just bought this sew table at sale for $20 w/stool, perfect ending
As you enter the room before I bought the sewing table, looks complete with machine and table and...
doggies, of course they helped me organize----------------yellow lab and german short hair pointer, Ginger and Gracie...........
Guess the doggies are pleased too in the new room!!!
