Craft Rooms or Breakfast Nooks?


I have been putting this off big time.  Remember when I made over my breakfast nook, and everybody went crazy because it was the prettiest breakfast nook ever?  Well, looks like I’ll be turning my breakfast nook back into my craft room.  I have seen so many craft rooms all around the web, but I don’t have an extra room.  This is the only space for my stuff.

Well…it wasn’t quite “working” for me.  I loved looking at it, and would occasionally sit in it, but it just wasn’t functional for me.

The kids and Matt rarely sat in the breakfast nook area, and I kept lugging all of my craft junk in from the garage and leaving it there.

It lost it’s luster.  It’s a shame really, it sure was pretty.

But alas…it was not meant to be.


I know, I know, but to be honest, one of the chairs broke, the other was getting wobbly, and the bench…not so comfortable.

That’s the problem with pretty…it’s not always comfy.

So, I moved the table, unbroken chair and bench out, and brought in Matt’s old cherry desk that was in my garage.

I made my own chalk paint, and painted it white along with a table that I had in my bedroom.

Now, I just have to figure out what to do.  I need to get organized, and want to keep my space pretty at the same time.

The curtains have got to go…I stole them from my bedroom, and HATE them here.

And…I’m going to have to come up with some new pretty craft room storage.

So, I guess I’m giving you another sneak peek…just like Kate’s cottage bedroom sneak peek!

By next week, they will both be finished, and maybe I can relax a bit…doubtful, but we will see!

So…what do you think?  Is it a terrible tragedy, or do you understand needing space to function well in a smallish home?

Be nice!
