Craft Room Ideas

I have a lot of craft supplies stuffed in just about every corner of my house. I try to organize the items every few months, but the cleanliness never lasts long. I have always dreamed of having a home office/craft room. I saw so many gorgeous rooms while I was searching for ideas online. I won’t have a craft room anytime soon, but I still wanted to share with you all some beautiful rooms that others have built.

Enjoy!

DIY Race Car Sign

About a year ago, my husband and I bought my son this awesome car bed:

He loves the bed, and I am always thinking of ways to decorate around it.

I recently dismantled an old, damaged dresser and saved some pieces from it to use for other craft projects. For this particular project, I used a thin piece of wood from the dresser and painted it a race car theme

 

I started off by sanding the board with fine grit sand paper and spray painting it red.

Once the paint was dry, I use a Sharpie Paint Pen to draw a road.

Then, I used stencils and acrylic paint to draw race cars and letters.

I painted the inside of the letters to make it resemble a racing flag.

Canvas Art

I hope everyone is having a great start to the new year. 2014 was a crazy year, and I am very happy to move on and see what 2015 holds for me and my family.

I made this art project because my goal is to surround myself with positivity. I wanted the canvas to look bright, cheerful, and to have an uplifting message written on it. I feel like a blank canvas is the best way to express emotions and creativity.

I used the following supplies:

  • White and Yellow Acrylic Paint
  • 16″x20″ Stretched Canvas
  • Paint Brushes
  • Metallic Silver Paint Pen
  • Artificial Flowers
  • Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
  • Stencils

I started off by painting the entire canvas yellow. This color makes me happy and instantly puts me in a good mood.

Next, I stenciled shapes on the canvas once the yellow paint was dry.

Then, I used a paint marker and letter stencils to write the word “smile” on the canvas.

Finally, I hot glued artificial flowers on the canvas and hung the art on my wall.
