A Solution For My Craft Room

I don’t think I’ve ever shown you my entire craft room.  It’s very hard to photograph.  It’s a large space located on the 3rd floor and has two dormer windows on each end.


I love my Martha Stewart craft tables but with their open legs you could see right through them as you come up the stairs.


I also keep a cheap plastic rolling cart of drawers underneath which is handy for scissors, tape, glue, etc. (the not- so- glamorous necessary stuff).


I decided to add panels to the craft tables so you couldn’t see the unsightly cart when you entered the room.


I cut pieces of foam core to fit the opening then glued blue and white toile from Waverly to one side.


I think it looks much better and polishes off the area.



The blue and white toile goes well with a memo board that I have in another area of the room.



I painted this plain sideboard and added a vintage wall curio that I picked up years ago.


It’s almost impossible to get a photo of this section because of the light that comes in from the dormer window.


Back to the panels…believe it or not, the panels fit just perfectly tight so that they stayed put on their own. I didn’t have to attach them with anything!


How about you?  Are you still organizing for the New Year?  I’m on a roll so I’ll have to tackle something else soon.

  The dates for the Fall Brocanting Tour to France are September 26-Oct 3.  Let me know if you want to go...there's only 1 spot left!

What a great idea, Kim. So practical and so cute.

Great idea to add those panels, Kim! I like to use the underneath space of my tables for storage, too. I wound up skirting the largest of my tables with a toile fabric to hide it all.
