Now that we are empty nesters my man and I got to work creating a new craft room with lots of natural light!
A new craft room with color and light will make creating so much more exciting!
I am calling it my Whimsy room! Because of the whimsy decor…so cute!
Here is what the room looked like before we began. Our son Mitchell.
We were given old base boards as a donation so I decided to use these as a crown molding around the room. I painted them white…and added a splash of distressing…
Whimsy or what? It was also a project I could do NOW since I had to wait for the flooring to come in.
I just took material and cut them into strips tying them onto a white cord made of cotton. I measured the cord out by hanging it on the window so I knew how long I wanted the swag. Lookin’ whimsy for sure!
Even the rod is whimsy!
Next took some time as Dan has never put hardwood floor in before. The underlayment isn’t tricky but thank God for Youtube.
Oh the hardwood is so pretty. I couldn’t resist and laid some down to see what it looked like. Getting all his measurements and knowing direction of wood he began the first layers.
He is so good at stuff like this and being a perfectionist he did it well!
OK…he finished the floor…
I think it turned out great! The details of this little room will make creating so fun and cheerful!
Isn’t it important to feel good in a place you are creating in?
