What can be better than another challenge to get things done? 

I have just updated the upstairs bathroom for the $100 Room Challenge and here I am getting into another challenge! This time : the craft room!
OMG, I can't believe I'm about to share these photos (insert a shameful face here!)

Warning : obviously, no staging was done before taking the pictures!

My craft room is also the laundry room, the 2nd refrigerator room and freezer room. And I might ad : the room where you drop something when you don't know where to put it! 😩

It's plain and simple : I can't work in this room and this madness has to stop now!!!

A couple of months ago, I had finally made the craft table that I always wanted! I though it was the beginning of an amazing craft room but busy life got in the way of finally finishing it up (I'm sure you know what I mean!).

This used to be CD and DVD shelving units from IKEA. I had started placing things inside. But again, I never finished the project. (It's not even screwed to the wall! That can be dangerous!)

The lesson here is that I think I really need a push in the back to finally get things done and keep focus. There's just too many projects in my head!


Here's what I'm thinking
  1. Tell my husband I have entered this challenge (oupss...sorry honey!)
  2. Clean up (obviously!!)
  3. Think storage and organization (I have a thousand ideas on the subject, but I'll have to choose according to what I have to store, the size of it, and the frequecy of use)
  4. One thing I'm sure, it's that pegboard I want to make

For the rest, I think I'll come up with ideas along the way, while I sort through all my things.

  2. Oh I'm so glad I'm not the only one who has rooms like this! Our office is definitely a "oh just throw it in there and we'll deal with it later" kind of space lol! I'm excited to follow along with your progress :)
