A New Craftroom/Yarn Room…..

.

This weekend I decided do a little “Spring Cleaning” on some very chilly days…  When we bought our house 15 years ago we added a small extra room for a bedroom…  After my older children grew up and moved out,,, It became a storage room/junk room… I am sure many of you can relate…

.

Fast forward 10+ years later…We kept adding “storage items” and never went back in to get anything out!!!  You can imagine,,, Boxes, toys, clothes, crafts and yes… MICE!  Yesterday I decided to make it into my very own “Craft Room”!  The thought of my very own room,,, used only for Beatrice Ryan Designs… OMG… That would be amazing!!!!

.

I wasn’t brave enough to take before pictures…but,,, I did start snapping progress pictures!  Going through the house and garages,,, I scrounged furniture, shelving, cabinets, rugs and anything I could find to make this dream happen… But first came the mounds of what I needed to remove…It seemed like I would never make progress,,, Several garbage bags, a good vacuum and some great music blaring… and within a few hours it started to take shape!  … Here are a few quick pics of what has been accomplished!

Hand-me-down TV Cabinet.. My Acrylic Yarn Collection Stash and a Silver Teapot Collection…

.

This is just half of the room done… The other half is still crazy… Lots of yarn to put a way still, and a closet to clean out to put storage drawer in…  I still need to paint… but for now the white walls are great… Just a place of my own and a modge podge design…

.

I will post more pics as I make my way around the room…

Happy Monday!  Elena
