A New Craft Room?? I Think So!

I've never been in the attic of the house we live in now. 
I know it has some leaks and a broken window and
I've never really had much of a desire to look up there.


I finally went up to take a peak
and I discovered my new craft room!

It's definitely going to take a lot of work!

I think my sewing machine would fit great right under these two windows

The ceiling is only about 5 feet in the middle
which is perfect for me!
I have both sides of the attic to put my tubs and bins
full of crafty stuff. 

I can't wait to get started.
Since we rent and we're broke it's not going to be the nicest makeover
but, I think I can make it quite doable
with lots of elbow grease and lots of love!

I'm so excited to get started....
and to get my craft stuff all in one spot and not
in the living room, dining room, hallways, closets and any other place I can find in the house to stash it!

Sherry, this is a perfect idea. I love it. Your very own space. It looks lovely. Have fun making it your own.

I have an attic as well, but to difficult to get up and down on the pull down stairs...You are so creative I know it will be amazing!

Hi, so great to hear from you. It's been so long since we have connected. I love the idea of using this attic. I would be thinking the same thing. What a fun hide-out.
This technique in my last post only takes the stamps and ink you may already have and a water spritzer. Try it out. The others do take alcohol ink or perfect pearls to make your own dye spray. Have a great Sunday, Lisa
