From Pool Room to Craft Room

I am sorry my sweet children, please forgive me. In a moment of weakness I sold your pool table. You see, while blogging, I have discovered so many wonderful craft ideas that I just had to have a place to create. This just seemed to be the perfect place for that.
And it started to get a bit embarassing whipping you at pool all the time so I do hope you understand. I did have your self esteem in mind.
We can play board games when you come home and maybe....just maybe I will let you win.
Love,
Mom

Now if this pretty space wouldn't put you in the mood to create, I don't know what would! If I had a room like this in my house, I'd never come out! Lucky, lucky you! :)

Well, I say that's what they *get* for leaving in the first place!!
Good for you in getting to it...I'm still trying to *find* my place! It turned out very nice...

Thanks for the kind words and prayers for our family...very appreciated and very needed. It is a difficult road.
Also, can't wait to see your new laundry room, too! Are you working on it now or is further down on the *list*?

Sharon~heartsongs said...

You are so energetic!! I look at these pictures ( I LOVE this room) and then I look at my house and see all of the junk that I have piled up that I need to find room for. Maybe if I look at this picture from home (I'm at work now), it will give me the incentive I need to start going thru things.

Jane said...

Even your craft room looks beautiful...like you! What a major change. It will be fun to create in this space. Happy crafting!
Hugs,
Jane

What a lovely place to create! It's so fun for me to see where other girls do their creating. My new craftroom is Robin's Egg Blue - and bright - and yet, I LOVE your soft and feminine room!!! Your blogs inspire me! Thank you for writing them. Hugs, Patti at paintinpatti.typepad.com

Lori said...

What a beautiful, creative room you have! I just LOVE it! Can I come over?

Liberty said...

Wouldn't it be great to make a photo mosaic with each creative room and have one huge photo image? so we could drool over each one whenever we wanted and be more inspired. Your ideas are awesome, your room is super!

Brynwood Needleworks said...

Your room looks like a fun place to hang out! Thanks for sharing. I too, indulge in hot weather pool time...being south of you in FL we really do need our pools!
Stop by when you can.

Oh, this is so pretty! What a transformation. I've got sheetrock walls but have a wood cathedral ceiling with some big beams! I'm just in the beginning of transforming it though.

Have a great day,
Stephanie

I love that you moved the pool table out for the benefit of your kids' self-esteem. :-) But you created an incredible room that is very inspiring. Thanks for the peeks at your creative spaces.

Kara Ward said...

What a large and lovely space you have! You have many projects that will be created in such a nice space. Fabulous!

fairychildheirlooms said...
