Craft Room Inspiration

I have an entire board on Pinterest dedicated to ideas for my craft room in the basement. Here's a few highlights that have inspired me and that you will see when I reveal the finished product.

I also have some organization inspiration from several places:

Then of course, there is some fun artwork I'd like to incorporate:

Basement Craft Room Before (Scary!)

Things have been so crazy in our household lately, it's been hard to find time to blog. One of the things I've been trying to get done is cleaning and organizing my craft area in the basement. I need to get this done for several reasons:
  1. Our basement flooded last year and I lost a lot of supplies because of it.
  2. I have way too much stuff and I need to sort and get rid of some things. *See this post*
  3. My husband has been bugging me to do this for the same above two reasons. ;) 
So at the risk of scaring everyone, I'm going to show you some before pictures. *Warning* The following pictures contain graphic images of massive amounts of craft stuff. Hoarding may be an issue. 

Yikes! I can't believe I shared that mess with you all. On the plus side, this space has good bones. The peg board and the built-in shelving were all here when we bought the house. I just need to organize this stuff and group all the like stuff together. Not to mention spruce up the place a bit! :) I'll admit, I'm almost done with this now, but need a little longer to do the sprucing part. For the next week or so, I will be showing you bits and pieces of this project, hopefully all leading up to a big reveal soon. Check back tomorrow where I'll show off bits of inspiration from my Pinterest board dedicated to the subject. 

Don't settle for dull, live a refinished life!
