Sweet Creative Space

I finished my Craft Room Wall!  For so long it sat as undefined space & it drove me crazy!  It's really a dining room, but we don't need a formal dining room & it's on carpet.  Come on...you can't feed kids on carpet. Sheesh.

So, I have a wall.  I almost had the whole room, but then decided I could do more with just one wall.  One wall to rule them all.  (nerd reference).  The rest of the room is a computer/reading area.

I had a blast putting together this creative space just for ME.  And it screams ME really.  It was almost magic how it all came together so nicely.  I started with the idea of an inspiration board, but that idea morphed into an inspiration wall.  The "tapestry" is really a tablecloth I picked up from a garage sale a while back.  I have loved it for too long & almost cut it up to make curtains but then decided to just hang it on the wall & I could not have planned it better.  It really ties everything together.  So without further ado...

 Ta-Da!
Ahhh..it makes me smile.

I love having a place to stick random things I pick up that peak my interest.

Before spray painting, put scrapbook stickers on.

You're so creative! I love all of the colors and patterns. Come and decorate my house, please? Also, while I'm here I have to say how bummed I am that we just missed each other. It would have been awesome hanging out at Forsyth with you and the kiddos!
