Office/Craft Room Redo

Hello friends!

I am on the painting trail and my office/craft room was the next room to be done.

I used the paint I had left from my sitting room, you can see that post here.

Old ceiling tin above a vintage mirror.
The Paris sign was purchased from the most talented Rosemary of Villabarnes. She does the most amazing things, be sure to check her out if you don't already know her.

My sewing corner.

Vintage shopping cart. I added a burlap bag from a bird feed store.

Craft storage. This room also has a closet that is used as a pantry/craft storage space. It is on the main level near the kitchen and is considered a bedroom.

You know I love my birds and thought I would add some late September migratory and year round birds.
Not sure what kind of hummingbird this is but I have more of these this year then I ever have. 

Mountain Chickadee.

Downy Woodpecker checking out the wren house.

Here is the one "before" of the office that I could find, bad blogger! I can't believe I didn't take before photos!
The walls were a chocolate brown, what was I thinking?
The room was beginning to be a "catch all" so is much more picked up and organized now.

Next up is my bedroom. I can't wait to redo that, it is going to take a while because I want to sell all of the furniture in it and start over. It is the last room in my house to "shabby chic/farmhouse vintage." Yay!

Happy Fall.

  1. Everything looks great! The burlap in the shopping cart looks great. Nicely done!

  6. Love the new look!
    I have a craft, slash laundry,storage room thats in big need of a redo it tends to get de-organized very quickly.
    Your room looks so bright and cheery! Love the view you have by your sewing area!
    Great inspiration!

  7. Love it all....I'll be over to steal your cute cart soon, LOL!

  8. I've envious os your craft space with all those windows. My crafty area right now is a large walk in closet with a tinty window, so would love to have a large room with lots of light. It's amazing how a can of paint can improve a space, isn't it? I love the wall color and your shabby decor.

    I've been telling everyone in case they didn't see it, but this is Shannon formerly of Cozy Home Scenes. Long story short, but I had to recently quit my old blog and start a new one. You'll be seeing me under this name fron now on.

    Have a great week!

  9. I love all the light you get in that room. So beautifully decorated as well.

  10. It looks great! Great windows and light too. I have those same metal shelves! You have inspired me to dig out my flea market cart (I have no clue where I have shoved it) and maybe turn it into yarn storage!

  11. You're on a roll Shanon! The room looks comfy for sewing/crafting and such. I do love Rosemary's work, too. You've put everything together well - good luck with the master!

  12. Love all the beauty you inspire, and what a creative studio space to be inspired in.
    Love all the bits of shabby you have added.

  13. Oh what a great, organized, pretty place...I love it and I love all the sweet birds.

  14. I love all the pictures you have the birds. My favorite picture is the hummingbird. Once in a while I can to see bluejays in my area. They are beautiful birds.
