Some Helpful Hints

Craft Room part 3


Craft room 16

Here is the rest of the room I did not show you. I wanted to say there is a mixture of Provencal fabrics, British transfereware and modern papers. But it all seems to work. Never assume something will not go, till you try it. I say just work with what you love and I bet it will go together better then you think. You can always pick out a color or two like we did to bring it all together.

In keeping with trying to spend as little money as possible, my mother took old pillows and covered them with fabric and fun trim. The middle pillow is just a tea towel. It is all pined, tied or glued. No sewing. We do not worry about the back of a pillow, because most times no one will see it  ;-)  

Craft room 13

This is the wall across from the table and it is storage. Which is pretty boring white but that is good because your eyes are drawn to the accessories then. We used china, bucket, tin (thank youJanet, I am letting my mother borrow the pretty tin you gave me. It goes so well with her room and is holding her crayons), jars, ect.

 Craft room 14

This is my personal favorite thing we did. It is a glass cake plate that I found a blue and white plate that just fit in it. We set jars on the plate to hold pencils and such.

Craft room 15

The one wall I did not show you has a closet, which my mother uses for more storage. I have to say, with all the gray days we have this sunny room is much more enjoyable to work in. Thank you mom for letting me share with everyone. I hope you found an idea or two. But mostly will look at what you already own and find a new way to use it xoxoxo

How very pretty! Would you please come to my home? ;) I really need some help in pulling everything together. If only you lived closer. You're so talented, Clarice!

Clarice, I really love how you decorate! I think the idea of using the cake plate is awesome, and I love that it is something I can do with everything I already have at home,so I don't have to any spend money. Yey:o) As cheerful as this room is I know it will give your Mom tons of inspiration!

I Love It All!! I'm going to try out the cake plate/jars idea for my drafting table in my studio too! Thanks for all the inspiration.

I wish my art room looked that good. Cheery is an understatement! Beautiful!

Gina

Clarice, you did wonderful job!! I bet your mom is just delighted. And it does look like it's full of sunshine.

The room turned out great! I, too, like the artsy look of the colorful spools on the holder (Previous post) and I am very fond of the idea of putting a plate on top of the cake plate. It gives a great contrast for the items on top. I have many cake plates---I will use that hint. Thanks for the room tour.

Well, I had a difficult time getting my comment to 'post' and now it's posted twice! I apologize, Clarice.

I found more than an idea or two, Clarice! Great ideas and thank you for sharing! I especially love the cake plate idea. I love cake plates and have more than I need for 'cakes' --- and this idea illustrates a lovely way to use them in a totally different way and still be able to enjoy them so much!

Thanks for sharing!

Clarice,

Glad your Mother can get some use out of the tin; it looks cute there. I especially like the blue plate/cake stand idea and I love that quilted topper on the white chest.

Happy Holiday,
Janet

You and your mother have given me many wonderful ideas. Thank you both for sharing this fabulous room.
