Another Creative Workspace

Handbag Junkies Another creative workspace! I moved my craft-space into my guest room, and spent two weeks packing, unpacking, and decorating.  I’ve used this space before, but had to move out of the room when my son moved back home, then he left after several months started a family and now we all have a space that we can share one year later.

My hubby did a great job, making my dream a reality for my Birthday, and I know he’s glad it’s over! Now I can walk around one side of the table, really stretch out (code for : make a crafting mess) and everything has a place.

I started this design last year when I was relegated to a corner in the living room. The Foremost cubes really came in handy and served me well there. So I thought I would keep the design going throughout the room.  I’ve chosen a television for the wall mount and there are still pieces of art that I plan to have stretched and framed.

I looked for a corkboard to cover with fabric and ribbon that was large enough to fit the wall. But I found a chalkboard at my local Home Depot building supply store instead that would allow me to capture my design process or things-to-do, which I could see when I entered the room.

There’s a little more work to do, but the crafting can now begin! The best part is… my family love’s it too. My little Hunk showed us his dance moves when he heard the music playing in the background.  Before you know it…he will be old enough to start painting and crafting too.

You can read more about how I made the craft table in the ” How to Customize a Creative Workspace” post from last year.

Stay tuned there’s more to come from LaCartera!

      Thank you! I love it and I’m looking forward to getting back to work this week. My grandson enjoyed himself too…he’s such a good baby.

  5. Isn’t it nice having a space of your own. I love mine. We turned my daughters room into my studio when she moved out to start her own family. Love your desk.

    What a wonderful space! I love seeing other people’s workspaces. Right now, I am confined to wherever has the most space at the time, haha, but am hoping to make some space of my own. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. lacartera says:

      Thank you! I’ve been in your shoes too, and I’m not going to get attached to this space, but I will enjoy it for the moment. 😊

      1. Make Something Mondays says:

        Awww, but it’s a beautiful space to get attached to. I hope you get to expand and improve over time.

      2. lacartera says:

        Me too! I really love the space.

I love to hear from you!
