Extreme Craft Room Makeover – Part 1

Well, it’s been a year since we hung our hats in this home and we’ve somehow managed to completely ignore the craft room remodel. I suppose that can be attributed to our crazy schedules, demanding dog (for real she is bossy) and DIY madness on the rest of the house. I’m no organizational expert but I seriously doubt one could start a booming creative business in this space….

and so project “Extreme Craft Room Makeover” begins. First things first- Get rid of the old nasty carpet.

Good news – I finally get to try my hand at painting a concrete floor. Bad news – I have tons of furniture to move and no garage…. I’ll keep you posted on the progress and if you don’t hear from me in a week send out the search crews, ok?

Craft On.

  1. I feel your pain we have been in our new house for 2 years and I have done nothing to my room and need to get back into crafting again we have been so side tracked with every other room in the house there has been no time good luck and I want pics soon of your new craft room

  2. advise: go with the more expensive floor paint, the kind that you add the color chips to. I painted our cement floor in the inclosed garage about four years ago, and have since had to touch up paint oh’ about ever year and could do it about ever 3 months. while a cousin used the before mentioned “more expensive paint” two yrs ago and doesn’t even have a scratch in it, and he did his in his business garage, lots of traffic on that floor. One of these days I will bite the bullet and repaint.

    • Thanks Rhoni,
      Did your cousin use an epoxi?

  3. I have a huge craft studio (15’x12′). The only problem is…..everyone else believes its a storage room. I have yarn on one end and my desk and photo/packing table on the other end in the middle is the black hole of death (as I call it). Boxes upon junk upon boxes stacked precariously, not to mention a recumbent bike, I would like to use but I think something is blocking my approach. Perhaps I’ll join you in your EXTREME MAKEOVER. Bring on Tye Pennington and lets DO IT!!
