You’ve already seen the closet and now it’s time to see the rest. If you haven’t already visited the Home Depot blog – you should take a trip over there to see the before and after photos of the Crib Meets Craft space. Once you’ve done that, come on back for a more detailed look at all the elements that make this room so special and so functional.
THIS post, you know that this room used to be a guestroom/craftroom that housed our big green sofa bed. That has been replaced with a sleek, acrylic and wood crib that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. Originally, I wanted a crib that was all acrylic, but Andrew kept telling me it looked like a fish tank. On the wall just across from the crib is my workspace.
If you’ve read
NurseryWorks site. With the addition of the aqua floor pouf from Land of Nod, this little corner of the nursery is ready for late night nursing and lots of story time sessions.
This rocker was one of my biggest wishlist items for the nursery. I fell in love with it the minute I saw it on the
Andrew keeps making fun of me because I refuse to let up on all the wall art in this room. I just can’t leave a bare wall! Just above the rocker, I designed this trio of simple, graphic prints that coordinate with the colors of the room. I love how they look.
Now if we head over to my workspace, you’ll see even more fun art prints!
My Martha Stewart Craft Desk takes the place of my old Ikea furniture and I am loving it…and can we talk about this acrylic chair. It coordinates perfectly with the acrylic on the crib.
I wanted to place some colorful artwork in the room, and found a huge print from Ikea for a great price. As for each of those four pieces around the large print, I designed them myself! Each one features a fun, graphic, crafty image with a color name beneath. They work perfectly for the crafty theme of the room and their kid-friendly as well!
I wanted to keep the desktop clean and uncluttered, but it still needed to be functional. The Cubby Cups from Land of Nod are a great way to store lots of pencils, rulers and other tools without taking up a ton of desk space.
These paper suitcases are another functional addition to my desktop. Inside, I store all of the acrylic blocks that I use for stamping…and I have quite a few of them! They are a great pop of color but also serve a great purpose. Double duty. Love that.
The Martha Stewart craft desk houses two deep drawers that hold a ton of supplies. For the sake of keeping things organized, I picked up a selection of Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers and arranged them within the drawer to fit my needs.
I love that I can keep my scissors tucked away and organized by size! I also added some wrapping paper to the bottom of each drawer for an added pop of color. It’s an easy and cheap way to add color to your space.
Craft Hutch and Three Drawer Flat File Cabinet. If you’ve never seen one of these in person, let me tell you this: these things are deceptively massive! They don’t really take up a huge footprint but man oh man, do they store a ton! The drawers pull out completely allowing you to use every single centimeter of space inside.
Now, when it comes to my craft storage, the star of the show is most definitely my Martha Stewart
Inside the hutch, I store all of my stamps, ink and dies. I keep them all organized inside of THESE awesomely sturdy Linus Cabinet Organizers.
The sturdy pull handle on the cabinet organizers make it very easy to grab my stamps and put em to work.
On top of the hutch, I’ve placed three cookie jars which are filled with odds and ends that didn’t have a home. I spray painted the jar lids to match the room and I love the pop of color that they add.
