If you are joining me the first time from I Heart Organizing - Welcome! I am so glad you came by!

The day has finally come. We are officially done.

Our craft room and home office are done and being used.

By all four of us.



Bailey has been hanging out here too.

It has been many months of lots of projects and DIY. I actually realized this morning that the only new thing in here are the rugs and the legs on the desks.

Everything else is vintage or we had it or made it.

And I kinda love that.


The built in desk is in full use with our girls. A few of the “pretty things” have been replaced with text books. And the blotters have math notes on them.

The pink chairs are from Ikea.

And that is just what I wanted. The whole goal, from the beginning, was for a place to work, a hangout area, a homework area and a craft space. A place for everyone to do what they wanted, but not be separated from each other.

We built our desks from doors.

We hacked an Ikea table top and made a craft table.

To see the updates we have made to our craft table to organize it even better, please visit our Craft Table Organization Tips.

We made a hangout space. Complete with a gallery wall and Sharpie art coffee table with one of our favorite songs on it.

And we filled it with some of our favorite things – including my fabulous truck from The Chapel Market.

But I think the best way to illustrate how far we have come is the dreaded befores. This space was so unused and where all things went to wait for a new home.








We used every square inch as best as we could.

And we love it.
