Once upon a time there was a craft room.
Don’t you just love stories that start like that….
…..and end with happily ever after?
Stories about a gate house with a tanning bed room that was rescued from a castle tower….after it let down it’s long golden hair.
A tanning bed room transformed with craft room chairs and a craft room desk and a craft room chalk board and plenty of craft room organization.
And a plethora of old tanning bed electrical outlets.
You know the joy that you have when you round the corner and there’s this yard sale sign and it’s written in really bright letters with words like “25 family yard sale” and “tons of stuff”….and you turn your car where the arrow on the sign points….fully expecting to be a little disappointed and just see old sorority t-shirts.
Except you don’t.
You see milk glass and wooden chairs and tables and an old vintage sign and your heart starts to race…..and then you try to prevent yourself from running towards the sale because then everyone would know that you were really interested and charge you more….
….but you are so full of joy that you start skipping?
This craft room is even better than that.
Do you remember where we started?
Do you remember what it looked like?
Here’s the before…..
And here’s the glorious wonderful golden-haired after.
Finally…all the craft supplies have found a home.
I mean seriously…..did you see the gift wrap station?
And the paint brushes and note pads and washi tape and straws.
And the bingo letters.
And the stencils and ribbon and the cute pink coordinating tools?
Did you see the peg board?
And the best part?
Wait until you see what the craft room inspires?
Wait until you see what I’m planning for fall.
I’m making wooden leaves and monogrammed wooden bowls with these really cool wood burning stencils and pallet wood letters and a gilded leaf wreath.
And about a million more ideas.
I love once upon a time.
I love romance.
And I love happily ever afters.
But seriously…..who needs a prince rescuing you from a castle tower…..
….when you have boxes of scrap book paper and washi tape.
