This is my second time doing the $100 Room Challenge, hosted by my friend Erin over at Lemons Lavender and Laundry. The last time I did a Deck refresh This time I am doing my…wait for it…
Can you hear the crowd going wild?!?! Or is that just me? 😉
A craft room was a MUST when we were house hunting. I always planned on using one of the bedrooms as my craft room/office/sewing room. How nice to be able to leave your project as it is and just close the door 🙂 This should stop the cat from sleeping on my projects, providing of course that I remember to shut the door! Keep reading to see the craft room design!
When we first moved into the house this was just an empty CLEAN room. Then It became the room where all of the left-overs went while I figured out what to do with them, Here is what it looked like after about 8 months in the house
We combined 2 households when we moved here, so I have a few left-over pieces of furniture that I plan on using in this room. I have gotten rid of a LOT of stuff, but I’m glad that I hung onto a few pieces that will be the foundation for my craft room
Here they are
Kitchen Table – My new layout table
Kitchen chairs – they can stay
Manicure table – My new sewing table
More bookcases from the living room (I don’t like them here)

Cutting edge stencils is sponsoring us for this round of the $100 Room Challenge. Click on the link above to go shopping!!!! They have provided the stencils to us for free, but for the purpose of the challenge, we are counting the cost of the stencil in our $100 Budget. I chose the Vision all-over stencil. I have been wanting to use this stencil for a long time.
The Master Plan
My plan is to pull off this craft room design with mostly paint and fabric, and the pieces that I already have. I’m using a colour palette of Grey, white, black, silver and HOT PINK!!!!
- Paint large billy bookcase white
- Paint manicure table
- Stencil backs of bookcases
- Re-cover ‘kitchen chairs’
- Add new photos to zebra pictures
- Make storage boxes for shelves
- Cover accent pillows
- Add a lamp if I can find one cheap enough 🙂
- Add an accent stencil to the wall
- Add some decor pieces
A word of warning, I will be exercising my option to US exchange 🙂 We Canadians generally do US exchange, since our dollar just doesn’t go as far as the American dollar. If you have ever come shopping in Canada, you will know that our prices are generally higher! I’ll be using a flat rate of 70 cents on the dollar for my craft room design, so I will top out at $130.

It’s gonna be a fun happy room!
Hopefully it will also be productive!!
I would love to have a craft room! This is going to be gorgeous with the pop of hot pink!
I’m excited about it too! Do you have a spare room, or maybe a craft attic?!?
So fun that you’re doing a craft room! I used to have a craft room but we moved and now I’m relegated to crafting at the kitchen island, so I’m a little jealous over here 😉
High contrast color schemes like black and white are some of my favorites – can’t wait to see how it all turns out!
I like high contrast as well. I’m in need of a colour fix, and am drawn to hot pink at the moment. I’m sorry to hear that you lost your craft room 🙁

My kitties help me with everything, too. Especially anything related to fabric.
They are super helpful aren’t they, furring everything up.
You have some great key pieces of furniture for in here!! I can’t wait to see how the space evolves over this month!!
It is my dream to have a craft room in the house. Though I am not very creative but still like working on a few projects here and there 🙂 Looking forward to seeing your progress and can’t wait for the reveal!
Maybe a she shed is in your future? That would work too!
