Sewing & Craft Room Tour {Furniture}

Sunday / 109 comments
I'm so excited to show you guys my craft room!  Or maybe I'll call it my studio since that makes me sound cool.  It is my favorite part of my entire house and my family spends lots of time in here making awesome stuff.  Which makes photographing this room REALLY hard since it's always a huge mess.  Today I'm just going to talk about the furniture and I talk about organizing everything here and the stuff on the walls right here.

My favorite part of the room is the giant craft table  that my husband built for my birthday using Ana-White plans.  Some girls ask for flowers or jewelry, I ask for furniture.  In fact the only furniture in the craft room that isn't built using Ana-White plans is the dresser which was thrifted and the barstools from Ikea.


The craft table is the modern craft table  and it was built with no modifications to the original plan.  The table is a great working height and can fit two counter stools perfectly.  I primed the table and then painted it with Behr's Windwood Springs which was the same color I used on the family command center dresser.  The table cost about $150-160.  The shelves on the craft table are pine and the top is plywood with pine edging.


I found some buckets from the farm supply store that fit perfectly on the end shelves.  The pails were about $5 each and are 9 inches tall.


Love!  The open shelves are perfect for storing fabric and I've been sewing a lot more now that my fabric is out where I can see it.


I found an old wood lazy susan at Goodwill for $2 and painted it pink.  It's perfect for holding art supplies and making sharing art supplies with siblings easier.


The office corner.  The corner desk we built last year using two old filing cabinets and Ana White Corner Desk plans.


E's little table and stool that she got for Christmas sit next to the big desk and give her a little spot to do projects and to color if I am on the computer.


I am still totally in love with the sewing table we built last year with modified Ana White narrow farmhouse plans .  The rustic bench is perfect there especially when I am using both machines at once.  Then when I need to use the other machine I just slide over.  It's also nice to have a spot for Ellie to sit and "help" me sew.


The storage dresser I refinished in Japan a couple of years ago.  It was my first big refinishing project and it's held up really great.  It stores the majority of my crafting supplies.


The craft room is where our formal dining room is supposed to be.  It's in a totally open section of our house right off the entryway and between the living room and kitchen.  The great thing is that I can craft/sew and still know what all my kids are up to.  The bad thing is that if the room is a mess than everyone that comes over sees it!  Which isn't really a big deal since everyone already knows about my crafting problem!


 The one moment in time this room was totally clean!!



Paint Colors:

Craft Table: Behr's Windwood Spring

  4. Brooke just beautiful, I too ask for HD gift cards for my birthday, forget shoes and bling, I want wood! And I must agree about converting the DR into a craft room, I'm seriously toying with this idea as the sewing, painting, crafting, making has taken over my life (and my kids). Thank you for the gorgeous inspiration and proof to my hubby that we can have a craft room in the main family space.

  5. Oh, and I'm following you now...just saw you are in the Pacific NW. We live in the Federal Way/Tacoma area. Where are you?

  6. What a great space! I just updated my craft space as well, so I love seeing other peoples ideas. I might steal the ball jars on the shelf idea. Mine are just sitting on the table now. I'm drooling over the buckets. What a great find! I love all of the made by you (or your hubby) furniture. Such a great space.

  7. So pretty - now I have something else I need Hubby to build for me.

  8. That is just gorgeous! I am so jealous of all the space and light and work tops! Just shared with my FB page https://www.facebook.com/pages/A-Turtles-Life-for-Me/212508615444255?ref=tn_tnmn

    Off to search the rest of your blog! You definitely have a new follower and let me know if you ever want to guest post, I love your style!

  11. Wow!!! Good for you! This is just gorgeous! Makes crafting so much more fun when there's a pretty space to work in! Enjoy!

  12. You're craft room is gorgeous too! And it's too funny because I totally am going to Goodwill to see if they have a lazy susan today for my new craft table (hopefully I luck out as you did)- I had plans to make a table top craft supply holder. I was thinking of using buckets, but I like the way you used jars. AWESOME room my dear!

  13. What a gorgeous craft room! I love it! And I especially love that it's in the formal dining room. I would love having that connection with the rest of the house, and who uses a formal dining room anyway? :)

  14. Your room is amazing! I redid my scrap room a few months ago and it is my happy place! Yours is just beautiful. Mine is more practical. Great job!

  15. Thanks for the links. Your craft room is amazing. I've been looking for some ideas how to make mine, and now I have some amazing ones.

  16. Love your room. The light blue accents are gorgeous and the kiddy table is perfect. My daughter claims a shelf and a drawer in my office, but was upset when I only had one desk and chair! lol

  34. [...] Brook from BeingBrook has been working on a sewing/craft space for her house and really wanted a counter height table.  So for her birthday her husband built her a large craft table using Ana White plans. Brook painted it a soft aqua coordinate with the rest of the space. Brook says, “It’s just what my craft room needed and I spend lots of time working on my projects and helping my kids create things too!” I am so wowed by Brook’s awesome space! Talk about a crafter’s dream room! [...]

    ReplyDelete
  42. I LOVE LOVE LOVE that craft table. Actually I love a lot about your room...including that it is "out in the open" (more practical for real life as a mom). I pinned this post for that day when I get to make my dream sewing/craft studio :)

    Can I also ask you something? How do you make those link party buttons so small. I copied and pasted one so that I could look at the code, and I see the alternate size pixel dimensions...do you just have to adjust each button by adding in those numbers? Thanks :)

  55. This is one of the best craft rooms I've seen in quite some time! I am in love with AW plans. I found her before she even reached 1000 followers so I've built a few things of hers myself. One of the ones I have had on my list that I still haven't done is this craft table! I am inspired! Thank you for the kick in the butt ;P

  60. WOW! and WOW! Love that you shared the Anna White site as well. Thank you! Your craft space is awesome. I'm hijacking a room in our basement and trying to figure out how to change it into a craft room since I have multiple crafts (sewing, soaping, paper crafts and cardmaking, etc). Right now my stuff is filling every nook and cranny in the house...should be a breather when I get it all downstairs! :)

    ReplyDelete
  61. I've been stalking Ana White's site for years. Have never built anything -- don't own tools or a husband who is handy -- working up the courage to try to build something.

    Just found your site when I googled Ana's Farmhouse table images. I am impressed with you as I am Ana!!!! You are absolutely incredible. When did you learn to build? What tools did you start with?

    I have a craft room that is a hodge podge of cast-off furniture. Yours makes me want to cry I am so envious.

  62. I love how you included a mini table for children!

We have an archway but no door to the room, so we hung a curtain rod & curtains so I can close them when the room's a mess. You could also put up a room divider. Hope this helps.
