Cutting Edge Stencils has provided us with stencils, but we will still be counting this towards our budget for the purposes of the challenge. My stencil is the vision craft stencil in medium. [Read more…]
Can you hear the crowd going wild?!?! Or is that just me? 😉
A craft room was a MUST when we were house hunting. I always planned on using one of the bedrooms as my craft room/office/sewing room. How nice to be able to leave your project as it is and just close the door 🙂 This should stop the cat from sleeping on my projects, providing of course that I remember to shut the door! Keep reading to see the craft room design!
When we first moved into the house this was just an empty CLEAN room. Then It became the room where all of the left-overs went while I figured out what to do with them, Here is what it looked like after about 8 months in the house
We combined 2 households when we moved here, so I have a few left-over pieces of furniture that I plan on using in this room. I have gotten rid of a LOT of stuff, but I’m glad that I hung onto a few pieces that will be the foundation for my craft room
Here they are
Kitchen Table – My new layout table
Kitchen chairs – they can stay
Manicure table – My new sewing table
More bookcases from the living room (I don’t like them here)

Cutting edge stencils is sponsoring us for this round of the $100 Room Challenge. Click on the link above to go shopping!!!! They have provided the stencils to us for free, but for the purpose of the challenge, we are counting the cost of the stencil in our $100 Budget. I chose the Vision all-over stencil. I have been wanting to use this stencil for a long time.
The Master Plan
My plan is to pull off this craft room design with mostly paint and fabric, and the pieces that I already have. I’m using a colour palette of Grey, white, black, silver and HOT PINK!!!!
- Paint large billy bookcase white
- Paint manicure table
- Stencil backs of bookcases
- Re-cover ‘kitchen chairs’
- Add new photos to zebra pictures
- Make storage boxes for shelves
- Cover accent pillows
- Add a lamp if I can find one cheap enough 🙂
- Add an accent stencil to the wall
- Add some decor pieces
A word of warning, I will be exercising my option to US exchange 🙂 We Canadians generally do US exchange, since our dollar just doesn’t go as far as the American dollar. If you have ever come shopping in Canada, you will know that our prices are generally higher! I’ll be using a flat rate of 70 cents on the dollar for my craft room design, so I will top out at $130.

Do you want to know how to build a garage slat wall? I used to like pegboard for storage walls. But now I prefer my slat wall. I find the little hooks that you need to use with pegboard a bit fidgety, and usually don’t stay put. Also slat walls are cheap and easy to build and you can totally customize them to your needs and your space. Plus I really like the look of the wood. I did a DIY slat wall for my work bench.

Its time to make some diy outdoor cushions! I love my outdoor space. Before we bought our house, I had a pretty nice deck on my condo, which you can see here
It’s been about 2 months since I completed the 6 week Yard Transformation Challenge, which was hosted by my friend Nat at Simple Family Crazy Life. So I thought I would check in and give you an update. Just in case you missed it here are all 6 glorious weeks!

If you have been following along with my adventures in our garage, you will be excited to see that I have followed up on my threat to stain and detail the work bench. This is all part of my plan to personalize the garage.
Holy cow, it’s already been over SIX MONTHS since we moved into the new house! It really doesn’t seem like that long. If you read my post, when we moved, you will know that I was worried that there wouldn’t be enough new home projects to keep me busy. Ha ha!! Oh yeah, there are projects… [Read more…]
Every now and then I do a project that I really love. This is one of those projects. I did this garden tool storage wall as week 5 of my 6 week yard transformation challenge. Every time I walk into the shed and see this fabulous tool wall, it makes me happy. I’m all for a little extra happy in my life. Here are all the specifics of how I pulled this garden tool storage wall together. And how you can too!
This is my front porch. Not really a porch by Southern standards ;-)but that’s okay, we don’t hang out here much. I won’t be hanging a swing or putting out chairs, but I can add a punch of colour with some well placed flowers. Here’s how I put together my front porch planters. [Read more…]
