A New Craftroom/Yarn Room…..


This weekend I decided do a little “Spring Cleaning” on some very chilly days…  When we bought our house 15 years ago we added a small extra room for a bedroom…  After my older children grew up and moved out,,, It became a storage room/junk room… I am sure many of you can relate…


Fast forward 10+ years later…We kept adding “storage items” and never went back in to get anything out!!!  You can imagine,,, Boxes, toys, clothes, crafts and yes… MICE!  Yesterday I decided to make it into my very own “Craft Room”!  The thought of my very own room,,, used only for Beatrice Ryan Designs… OMG… That would be amazing!!!!


I wasn’t brave enough to take before pictures…but,,, I did start snapping progress pictures!  Going through the house and garages,,, I scrounged furniture, shelving, cabinets, rugs and anything I could find to make this dream happen… But first came the mounds of what I needed to remove…It seemed like I would never make progress,,, Several garbage bags, a good vacuum and some great music blaring… and within a few hours it started to take shape!  … Here are a few quick pics of what has been accomplished!



Black Computer Cabinet… Wool Antique Rug and my cat making sure there are no more mice!



Large Inherited Chest of Drawers,,, Hooks and Needles and a Geisha Fabric Wall Hanging (Fun Project!



Great Comfy Sofa,,, Needed a little repair on a cushion from the mice…



Hand-me-down TV Cabinet.. My Acrylic Yarn Collection Stash and a Silver Teapot Collection…


This is just half of the room done… The other half is still crazy… Lots of yarn to put a way still, and a closet to clean out to put storage drawer in…  I still need to paint… but for now the white walls are great… Just a place of my own and a modge podge design…


I will post more pics as I make my way around the room…


Happy Monday!  Elena
