Craft Corner for Daisy’s Room

Posted by on Sep 3, 2012 in crafts, Daisy's room, organization, spray paint, thrift store, yard sale | 30 comments

I am almost too tired to write this post for today.

It has been a weekend full of birthday parties, soccer, shopping, time with friends, traveling hubby. . .

I need a few days off to recover from our long weekend!

I had great plans of all I was going to get done this weekend.

I have a list of fall projects a mile long.

Instead, I was home for about 2 hours (Ok, that is an exaggeration, but that is how it seems to me!)

Instead, I will share with you another corner from Daisy’s room.

I am sure that you are tired of hearing about it.

I had planned on saving this for much later.

But, here it is:

Daisy’s biggest request for her “new” room was that she could have a big area to craft.

(She takes after her mother just a bit!)

We moved in a larger desk that used to be in our master bedroom.

We really never used it; our master is just the catch all for all furniture with no home.

I am hoping to fix that in the next year.  It is on the list, just further down. . .

The bookcase was moved from the girls bathroom.

My dad made it several years back (he is so talented!)

I did repaint the inside a bright turquoise.

The chicken wire frame was a quick project.

One $5 frame from a yard sale – spray painted bright green.

A quick trip to the hardware store, and I had the chicken wire.

I simply cut it to size and stapled it in.

This will be a great place to house inspirational pictures and ideas.

We bought the giant clips this summer at the Crate and Barrel in New York City.

They will hold so much!

This is a theme in our home – Life to the full!

The desk is full of thrifty finds:

Create sign – $1 (plus spray paint)

Green watering can – $2

Jars – free from jellies and sauces

Black spinning organizer – $3

Desk organizer – free from our attic

Wall craft organizer – free from Santa a couple of years ago

Every basket and box are full of craft supplies!

Oh, the crafting that is going to take place here!

She was up last night until 11:00 working with her Cameo.

And, she had a precious card to show for it this morning.

Life to the full,

  1. It looks great! I would love to have a space like that in my house. Instead I just end up spreading things all over the dining room table and then it’s out of commission for awhile. You are so talented and Daisy is so lucky to have such a beautiful room! ❤

    • I need a space like this! My crafts still get strewn all over the house – kitchen table, dining table, den table. . .

  2. What a lovely spot for crafting, Melissa! I love the storage and organization going on ~ the chicken wire frame is great and I love that wall holder with the ribbon and other things.

    • Daisy is loving her new space. She was up until midnight a couple of nights ago just crafting away!

  3. What a NEAT area you have…I’m so jealous!!! Thanks for sharing at my party.


    • Now let’s see if it will stay this neat?! So far, so good!

  4. It’s awesome! It makes me want to get downstairs and work on fixing my OWN craft area. I’ve recently been buying old lunch boxes off ebay for storing craft stuff. Don’t tell Skid! 🙂

    • He would be jealous of your craft storage!

  5. I never get tired of hearing or seeing Daisy’s room. I am so envious of her craft area, it’s incredible.Love all of it but the big white organizer on wall is my favorite.
    Course if I had it wouldn’t look that nice for very long at all.I’m one messy crafter. I have things on the kitchen island, the counters, the bakers rack in kitchen, the l/r. My poor husband.He just walks around it.HEy I’m a crafter. If I’m in full crafting mode nothing much else gets done. Good thing he does the cooking or he’d really starve. My friend that was here visiting thought it was awful that I let him do the cooking. Ah well, she’s not here to see what he does when I try to cook,not that that happens very often anymore.
    AT Christmas the whole house is a wreck as I’m making gifts, ornaments, etc. Last year I made about 300 ornaments to give away and sell. I was also in an ornament exchange around Thanksgiving. Hope you can get some rest and take it easy a little bit anyway. Yeah right with 3 kids and a hubby.
    Til nexttime.

    • I am with you – I am one messy crafter! My glue gun in here on my kitchen counter. I have a painting project going in the den and I am making a scarecrow on the back deck! Oh, to keep it all in one place! Wow – 300 ornaments! I would LOVE to see some of them!

  6. It looks awesome!! I started working on my craft corner sometime ago and never got around to finishing it… you have definitely inspired me to go back and finish what I started!

    • You go girl! I love just standing and looking at her great organization! My crafts are not near as neat!

  7. Awesome area! Such a lucky girl!

    • I need to find a place in our house for a space like this for me!? My crafts are all over the place!

  8. Every time I sneak a peek at Daisy’s room I realize that there are fabulous mothers like you out there who nurture the talented creative spirit in their children. And then I throw myself in front of the computer screen so that my kids don’t know what they are missing out on. (We made homemade playdough today and I almost awarded myself “Mother of the Year.”) Make sure Daisy knows how lucky she is to have such an amazing room and an equally amazing mom.

  9. this looks great! I sure love the green frame!

  10. I definitely need to pin this one for future reference. A place for everything! Sigh!

  11. Melissa, Thanks so much for sharing all your wonderful projects on Simple & Sweet Fridays. What a beautiful inspiring craft room.


  12. This is such an amazing craft space. Your daughter is one lucky girl. *Stopping by from It’s Overflowing.* I’m now subscribing via RSS feed. 🙂


    • Thanks so much for following!!! Daisy is loving her new craft space!

  13. What a great craft corner you created! I love the chicken wire on the frame. That’s going to be a fun spot to hang all sort of fun or inspirational pictures.

    • She is already filling it up!

  14. What a great craft corner! So pretty and organized!

  15. I love love LOVE Daisy’s craft area! What a lucky girl, and you must be so proud of her. And she must be so happy with her finished room!
    Debbie 🙂

  16. that cute shelf on the wall with the ribbons and other notions is adorable! I definitely need something like that to organize and keep stuff out of reach from my “little helper”. Where can I find one? Came over from DIY Show off and I can’t wait to see more

  17. Loving the Daisy’s craft area, love how you put chicken wire in the frame. Wishing you were my Momma! Thanks for sharing your creative inspiration with Sunday’s Best – you helped make the party a success!

  18. Your craft corner turned out great! Thanx as always for partying at THT!

  19. Let me just tell you–I would love to have a crafting space like that!! She must really take after her mom!

  20. Looks great! I need chicken wire! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!

  21. Do you just have bottles and bottles of spray paint on hand??
