I’ve been getting the urge to redo my entire craft room from top to bottom.
During the 4 years we’ve lived in this house, I’ve try to bring this place to a place more our style and, well, century. We steamed and stripped wallpaper in almost every room, repainted surfaces in most spots (sometimes twice!), sanded, washed, and generally tried to get this place into decent shape. One room I left as-is (maybe because it was in ok shape already? maybe because we ran out of wallpaper-steaming steam? maybe because I wanted to start sewing right away?) is my craft room. As a result, I’ve been looking at a hideous green floral wallpaper border and bright yellow walls for too long, and I’m finally starting to find the thought of stripping more wallpaper palatable, if you can believe it.
While I deliberate paint colors and how EVER I will remove each and every item from this small-but-chock-full room, I decided to whip my ribbon supply in order. I had a bunch of dowels lying around that went unused during a roman shade project, and so put one to work as a ribbon holder.
The whole stash hangs underneath a little Ikea shelf I put up ages ago and had hooks hanging from it anyway. Easy to access, pretty to look at. Hopefully not so heavy that the dowel breaks! Maybe someday I’ll cap those ends somehow, but for now I don’t much care that they stick out there.
Anyway, I’d really like your opinions on wall colors at some point. I will try and post some pics of the room itself (when it’s not a complete and utter mess, like it is today!) and see what you guys think. I’m thinking some tealish blue. I have been finding and saving color schemes over at http://kuler.adobe.com. Warning – it’s an addictive site!
