Welcome back to the latest update of my Craft Room Makeover for the One Room Challenge (ORC) hosted by Linda of Calling It Home! If you missed last week’s post, you can visit post here. As a quick recap, I’m carving out a section of our family room (currently a playroom) into my very own CRAFT space! This is the first step in reclaiming our family room and transitioning it into the Resort/Coastal family room I’ve dreamed about for so long.
Let’s get to this week’s progress report! 😀
As you can see from this photo, I removed all the items that used to occupy this space. I’m just leaving the blinds here until I start patching up holes and painting!
After removing the wall shelves, I’m left with a bunch of holes to fill and spackle. Joy…..
Empty looking just like the left side of room. Good thing this wall doesn’t need much patching up..
Besides clearing out all the items in this space, I also did some much needed sourcing for my space. I’m really excited to share the design board for this Resort Chic Craft Room Makeover!
I’m most excited to work with the wallpaper and textiles from Cynthia Johnson Fabric & Wallcovering (available at Elephant in the Room Designs).
Here’s a close up of the pattern that I selected for the accent wall. The pattern of “clouds” and “ocean waves” go perfect with the resort/beachy feel that I’m after.
I also chose fabric to make a valence for my window. As you can see, I love geometric prints!
Check out this gorgeous print below! I’m using this fabric to make a throw pillow. 🙂
Last week, I mentioned that I’ll be sharing some Craft Room Inspirational Photos with you all. Here are 2 that I absolutely love!
Disclaimer: No way will my Craft Room resemble anything close to these photos! But you already knew that, right? 😉

I love how everything is neatly organized and contained. The amount of storage is in–cred–i–ble!! #eyeheartsalloverthis.

I love this for the light and bright feel … plus the pop of bold prints on the chairs and flooring.
