Hi Friends!! I really needed to make over my Jewelry Studio/Office. I started by painting. I worked hard and I am so proud! My daughter Maya helped me tape off but other than that, I did it all by myself! That’s right! Girl Power!! I still have a lot of work to do but I like the progress I have made so far. The paint color is so cheerful. I feel happy whenever I walk into the room. Nikki from At Home With Nikki has a video about craft room organization and it is awesome! That was my motivation and my inspiration to start. Thank you, Nikki! I am happy with the progress I have made so far. I will add some cabinets, get a new desk and jewelry desk eventually but for now it is my happy space! Here are before and after pictures of my jewelry studio/office.
If you are in need of a craft room or home office makeover, I suggest that you head on over to YouTube and watch Nikki’s video. She suggests that you choose your color and commit to it. I found that tip to be very helpful. I am the type of person that tends to get overwhelmed by too many choices. I’m like a kid in the candy store when it comes to paint chips! My poor husband was so patient with me when we were shopping for paint at Lowes. I was able to narrow down the color before we left the house. Since I chose the color that I wanted to paint, the whole process took less time because I just had to narrow down the shade. I wanted my space to be bright so I didn’t want to go too dark with the color. I am so glad I got it right the first time! I just love the color and how it all turned out! I can’t wait to buy accessories and artwork for the room. I really wanted my space to give me creative energy and it has done just that. When I step into my jewelry studio/office, I immediately think of ideas for jewelry designs, blog posts and crafts that I want to make. At the same time,my studio is very calming and I feel that this will be a great place to relax and be by myself. I plan to have a small TV and a comfy chair for reading, watching TV or listening to music.
I will be sure to update you as I make progress. I would love to hear about your craft room or office! If you have any tips or suggestions for organization, I would love to hear those too!
