one very clean craft room

Oops! I realised this morning that I hadn’t shown you any pictures of my craft room looking all sparkling and clean. Something that is very rare. Now, obviously I am not sewing or doing any actual craft in this room because it’s way too clean for that!

We had hoped to paint the dresser white to go with the room but totally ran out of time. Painting cornices and skirtings took priority over that. And I placed a few quilts and books around to give the impression that someone sews here. The reality is that I boxed up over 20 boxes and tubs of craft stuff and put it into storage BEFORE the open house.

and a bed was made up to show how spacious the room is and that, well you can fit a bed in there. I’ve obviously been watching a few too many home shows but think for a spare room it looks respectable. Especially since a spare room in this house quickly becomes a dumping ground.

And some of you might remember this is Keira’s quilt that I made after Christmas. Unfortunately Keira saw it and almost had a meltdown that her quilt and pillow wasn’t on her bed. I promised she could have it after the open house and all was well. I really hope I can make a similar quilt for Finn. 


  1. Completely charming!

  2. Looking gorgeous Corrie, i can’t believe how different the kitchen looks (the old one) wow, wished i stopped by on the way home, catch you next time!!
    Good luck with the sale, it’s nerve wracking. We’re selling a property (investment) & that is torture enough, plus looking for land, of the 100 acre+ variety & quite frankly, real estate agents are not my favourite people.
    I too have big eyes & dreams, toss in 4 children in private school but we’ve saved long & hard for a roof over our own heads. Deep breaths, we’ll all get there. You can be our city home & i’ll be your country home. Love Posie

  11. It looks fabulous. Im dreaming of a craft space just like that.. one day! For now I am camped out on the dining table with mountains of fabric.

  12. I love the room, it looks fabulous! Good idea to put the bed in – I know it’s just for show but if it were mine I’d leave it there: I often need a good lie down after a busy day of wrestling with the sewing machine….! (Good luck with the sale.)

  13. Nice and calm room, I like your style to arrange your room. By Smart dresses preview
