Craft Room tour

I have been working on this craft room of mine for two years now.  What took so long!?  LOL!  When we moved into our thirty+ year old house, it was mostly white walls with icky baseboards.  A blank pallete for sure.  This room is right off the large entryway when you walk into the house.  It was originally a sunken living room yet the previous owner used it as a playroom and built these awesome custom bookcases.  We immediately ripped out a bay window in our dining room to access the previously unused space in the Arizona room.  It’s now a homework station / playroom which left this room all to ME.  A craft room?  Why, yes please!

I scored this gumball + stand on Craigslist for twenty bucks, I love the vintage red and have been debating out painting it.  I asked my Insta friends what they thought and some were NOT happy about that idea.  Ha!  Don’t you love the happy HELLO that welcomes you?  Makes you want to CREATE something right??

We love these painted concrete floors!  Creative Spaces magazine invited us to be apart of Volume 3 creative spaces that is coming out this summer so Kristi thought “they’ll be here next week, let’s rip out the carpet and paint the floors!”  Then she went out of town and I was stuck painting alone.  Typical.  Just teasin ya, Kris!  Good thing my math friendly hubby stepped in to measure the stripes, I’m easily confused, sheesh!! I’m happy to report the whole painted concrete floor process was fast, easy and affordable.  Tutorial coming soon!

Such a fun craft room with striped painted floors!

The monogram L is for Lolly Jane.  Read about why we named our blog that (;  Kristi borrowed this frame turned chalkboard from my ombre wall.  I love it in this space with her freehand chalk art!

We nabbed these Target chairs on clearance for $30/ea.  We took them back to Target after the photo shoot, they were super cute but I love my big comfy ones (you can see a peek of them in my entryway) and we plan to paint them.  Yes, paint fabric chairs.  It’ll rock, don’t be worried.

Accessories are a girls best friend!  I’d rather shop home decor over clothes any day!  I love the easy fabric wrapped wreath, fun to swap fabric anytime.

Got the vintage table for $40 from a garage sale, the lamp is from Marshalls (borrowed/kept from my daughter’s coral room makeover), the vase from Michael’s on cleaerance and the adorable clock was a gift from our pals at Pick your Plum!

A fun colorful craft room!

That’s it for now!  I think I’m officially done with this room.  It’s always moving around due to blog posts we have due and there’s sure to be a pile of glue, bakers twine and random crafting supplies spilling out but I love this room.  It’s my happy place and it’s all mine!

Check out my first step in this process, the herringbone painted bookcase:

  7. What an awesome craft room! I love the painted floor and your gum ball machine was a great find. I have the same exact one and have debated on painting it too! I do have to ask about the Target chairs you found on clearance for $30. I love those chairs and have seen them marked down to $129 but never $30! How did you score such a great deal?

    1. So glad you like it!! (: The curtains are from World Market, my talented sis Katie cut them in half and added a ruffle (: The rug is from DownEast Home, it’s called “Red Pepper” Have a great weekend!

  9. Oh wow, that is the coolest crafting room I’ve seen so far! I can imagine sitting on one of those painted Windsor chairs in that bright and colorful room, chewing gum and popping bubbles while having fun creating for hours on end. You are one lucky gal!

  10. Love it!! I just bought a gumball machine on Craigslist too!! Any recommendations on where to get inexpensive gumballs!?

  11. Love your craft room!! I actually spay painted my gumball machine white and I love it. My glass broke so I need to replace it. 🙂

    1. Ooooh white! I bet it’s SO pretty! Good luck w/ the glass- having it broken is my biggest fear on a daily basis with littles around! 😉

  12. Gorgeous!!! I’m in love with your room! It’s the exact colors of my office/craft room (I have to share it with other family members…ugh). Please don’t paint the gum ball machine. It’s adorable as is and looks great at the entrance to your room. Love the greeting on the floor!! Love, love, love the whole room!! You did an awesome job!!

  16. Fantastic job! I love how you have used so many different things to make it all work together. It looks like the kind of room I could totally craft in all day! My craft room is a work in progress and I keep telling my husband that I need to get after it. Seeing this makeover is just another kick in the inspiration pants!
