Craft Room

When my husband and I started dating, we were {thankfully} both established in our teaching careers and we each owned a house.  This was totally awesome until we moved in together and had to make the heart-wrenching decision to choose just one house to call our home.  I know — #firstworldproblems.

Anyway, needless to say, my 1938 “cottage”, though adorable, did not make the cut due to its teeny tiny size (the poor guy could hardly stand upright in the shower or the basement).  To ease the blow, he was sweet enough to move his recording studio equipment to the basement so I could set up my very own craft oasis.  What a sweetheart.


After many hours spent on Pinterest and in the aisles of Michaels and Hobby Lobby, the craft room came to be!  This is easily my favorite (albeit the messiest) room in our house.  I can’t wait to share my DIY creations with you!
