sigh. it's been awhile since I showed you the craft room. i actually thought it would be done by now, but isn't that the way it goes?
it's pretty much done as far as the foundation goes, but for some reason i cannot visualize what the finished room should look like. i usually 'see' the end product, but this little room is stumping me. probably because of the mish mash of junk furniture i have to work with, and the limited budget i want to spend to complete the project.
the 'before' shots give you an idea of the dreariness.
i really wanted to carpet the space, but at the last minute decided against it because a) it would have been sort of expensive and b) i am really not sure how water-tight the basement is, since we have been in a drought since i bought this house. might be better to wait and see.
so, there you go. I went with a sisal rug instead of carpet (actually 2, which i will eventually stitch together). the orange wall has me questioning things. might be a little too bright, but I plan to line that wall with shelving, so hopefully it will tone down a bit.
i also hope to bring in a giant work surface - thinking of a solid-core birch door, or even some butcher block countertop. something sturdy. so that i can sew and craft and store all of the 'stuff' that is randomly strewn about.
i'll keep you posted as i go along :)
ps. a certain someone is very very interested in breaking in the new rugs in this home .... :)
