Craft Room Makeover

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
Happy Monday~I hope you had a great weekend!
Can you believe it's February already? Wow, I seriously do not know where the time goes?!

Well. I thought I would take a few minutes and post the progress being made in my little craft room. I have had a few friends asking me to, here you go :)
My old craft room was a similar design with the exception of the higher counter.  I did gain a little extra room in the cabinets on the high counter and in the corners of the room. The opposite side of the high counter also has room for a high stool/drafting chair if needed for Arya (Granddaughter) when she comes to craft. We added additional lighting as well as a spot for taking photos of  my finished projects.  My closet had additional shelving added to make this area more functional as well. I have done a LOT of purging, cleaning and re-organizing. I am happy to say I feel really good about my craft space.

I do have a little more labeling of bins to do. The top shelving about window is where my Cricut cartridge boxes will be stored. I have the booklets and cartridges stored, labeled in plastic snap bins and organized alphabetically for easy access. I have some decorating to finish up along with a magnetic/chalk board I'd like to make for a empty wall I have when first entering into the room. Other than that, I am excited to start creating again!

Thanks for stopping by!
Leave me a comment...I would love to know what you think. Also, looking for any suggestions on decorating tips/idea's for this space~



  1. Oh my Gosh! It turned out so AWESOME! I just LOVE the colors and the design! You have given me so many ideas my friend! Thank you for sharing, I just LOVE it!!!

    Hope you had a great weekend! We spent some time in Oregon this weekend and it was cold :) But such a nice time.
    I'm still trying to get my craft room back together, Still waiting on cabinets, I guess we may not put the wall cabinets in for a little bit. The new room has to double as a conference room for the hubs. He does video calls so we really needed a space for him too.
    Always looking for great storage ideas!
    Thank you my friend for sharing the most fabulous craft room!

  2. Looks wonderful Sherrie! We are building a new house and I am going to be doubling my craft space!! I am so excited so thanks for some great ideas!

  3. Of all the craft room tours I've seen - yours is my favorite! It's so practical! And because of the small space, one would have to purge on a regular basis. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Oh wow, Sherrie, it looks amazing!! I want to come craft with you in your beautiful space!! I love the counter tops!! You did such a fabulous job with the makeover!! Your craft room is magazine-quality gorgeous!!

    I'm in the middle of a craft room overhaul, too. I was to the point where I couldn't find any of my dies. I think I told you my Dad was building me a cabinet for storage...well, it's in my craft room now and I couldn't be more's even better than I imagined. I'll be able to fit all of my dies, stamps and embossing folders in there. I'm working now to organize them and that's taking so much time. I'm putting them in individual storage pockets, making labels and tabs. It's a little overwhelming. I haven't actually created a project in room is in such a state of chaos. I'm purging, too. I have so much paper that has just taken over. I'll never use it all. But I can't wait to have it all done. Now I just want to scrap everything and move into your craft room ;) You are leaving for your snowmobiling trip soon, aren't you? I hope there's plenty of snow for your trip!! We are near 60 today!! Unbelievable!! Have a wonderful week my sweet friend!! Now that we've seen pics of your space, I think I need to see a pic of your three sweet's been too long!! Have a great day!! Big hugs :)
