I'd rather have a craft room...

...than a bedroom. So I finally decided to get rid of the bed! It was such a relief to be able to walk around freely in my room, and be able to begin the task of restyling it to a craft room. Not that it would be marvelous or anything like that, but its one big step towards my goal. Hopefully, I'll be more productive than in previous years and I won't be leaving works in progress on the dining table, or on the sofa, or on the computer table ;) (at least not most of the time...hehe)
I have fantasized a while back about a room makeover, that I'd have to do on a shoestring budget. Nothing getting rid of the bed, which is too bulky for me anyway, is the kick-off for the much needed makeover. (I'll be sleeping on a folding mattress for now, and when things go well I'll be able to buy a sofa bed ;) I feel like I'm camping out, but its really not bad.
I was then able to give the bed to my brother who still has growing children. They are currently moving to their own place after having rented an apartment for so many years. (Yay!)

Lucky me, I was able to ask another brother for a table he's not using much anymore. I thought it would be perfect for my sewing projects! It just needs some finishing, but I think I'll just buy upholstery fabric to cover up the top. Oh, and I need to buy a comfy chair as well...haha.

Lastly, I'd like to show here on another corner of my room where I put the sewing machine that my sister-in-law gave me over a year ago. I think I'll be able to put it to use now that it has its own well-deserved place in my craft room :)))


  1. That's awesome, Mimi!! Plus it might be easier to keep clean since it is still technically your bedroom, right? (My craft room is huge MESS...) I'm so happy for you, to have a craft room now. :D Congratulations!

  2. Thanks Tina! I've been good at cleaning up my far, hehe.

  3. wow its nice to see you have accomplished towards your goal even bit by bit.i sometimes think that one day i will be a fulltime crafter just like you.i wish it would be my career too. i guess when i'll be at home fulltime.

  4. Thanks Fe...I wasn't sure when I started here where this would go, but its not that bad. Its just a bit boring, you know. If you're good in business you can make a lot of stuff to sell, esp. the jewelry ;)
