More from the Craft Room/Office

 In today's post, I thought I'd share a couple of things I really like about my craft space. Since finishing it up awhile back, I've found that I'm much more productive having an organized space that feels good. Not that I was a slacker, mind you :) BUT I do think I get projects done more efficiently in my "new" space. I'm also much better about tidying up since everything has a home now!

First, I recently ordered a vintage ad poster for my closet (yes, you read that right!) and I LOVE it! I've always had my eye on this print. When I started looking for a poster to hang in the closet I realized that the colors matched perfectly. Now the closet really looks like an alcove! The closet (which was previously stuffed so full you couldn't even walk inside it!) is now extremely functional. It's my favorite part of the space.

On a recent trip to Target, I also found the small metal tree (hanging next to the closet). I love the stylized design!
 

 Before I revamped the room, I had a lot of trouble working in the space at night. So I added two more lamps which make the room much more functional when the sun goes down. This small lamp in the corner is great for reading and creates sort of a cozy ambiance. Now I LOVE being in the space at night!
  
  
I moved my existing floor lamp so that it's close to my new table. This makes it easy for me to work at night. Notice that the blinds are pulled up so that the kitties can perch on the stool and look out the window while I work. :)


Now I just need a fridge and a bed, then I'll never have to leave! Just kidding...I think...

I recognize and love that framed metal tree from Target. Your space is gorgeous! Will definitely be referencing as I set up in my new house. Right now everything is getting shoved into boxes.

Thank you, ladies! I'm really pleased with it and find it's working very well for me. Good luck with your packing and move, Sarah!

Looks wonderful! We might be selling our home and building another and I've already been thinking about a new space. You've giving me some great ideas!

Thanks so much, Kristina! Oooh, if you build a house, you'll be able to create the perfect space! I'm excited for you!
