I haven't posted to WOYWW in the last few weeks because showing a messy DIY zone was getting a bit boring...lol. I'm posting today so guess what that means? It's about DONE! Here is what it looks like today:
Want to see the rest of my almost complete room? Here it is!
Here are some more photos of my new craft room. Notice on the pegboard the frame isn't finished being put up. It's done now though. At the end I'm going to list the supplies and stuff I used to put my little room together. All that's left is to fill it with all my crafting goodness and go pick up my short drawer set that matches the colourful tall one...lol.
PEGBOARD...yeah! It was hard to find here in the UK as slatboard is what is used most in Europe YUK! This was so cheap and cheerful to put together, even the hooks were cheap. I bought white pegboard and stenciled the pattern in the blue paint. I used matt spray varnish to coat the whole pegboard so the paint wouldn't wear off so easily.
Here is the other end of my desk. I already had this set of plastic drawers. I wans't going to use them but they really did go well witht he rest of the room so now I'll get the shorter set to match for the other side. I might even get 2! Notice my hutch is back. It's not that old, about 8 months so kept that too.
So that's my craft space. It's not that big and storage is going to be interesting but I'm a relatively new crafter so don't have a ginormous amout of stuff yet but getting there (to my hubby's chagrin.) Here is a list of the supplies I used to decorate my room and where I got them. Some items will have the prices as well since I did my best to do this on a budget. Hope you like it...I sure do. It will inspire me for a good while...lol.
Desk - Ikea, Galant Corner Desk w/1 side extension in white
Hutch - Ikea, Hemnes Add on unit in white stain
Drawer Set - Hobbycraft, Really Useful Drawer Unit tall
Recess Shelving - Wickes, Single Slot Metal Upright x 2, Single Slot Brackets 150mm x10,
B&Q, MDF for shelves (we got it for under £10 in store, not as priced on website)
White Matt Emulsion - Homebase
Colour Paint - Wilkinson's Neptune Matt (This paint was not very nice to work with. It was too thick and had too much vinyl in to so it peels off when dry. Next time I'll get a better quality. Paint is brighter than seen on web.)
Create Word - 300 gsm cardstock printed with 1 letter per A4 sheet. Font used: Cafe Rojo
Round stencil on Pegboard - Pronty Mask Stencil 12" x 12" (I'm having my daughter add the stencil on the wall in a few more places too.)
Pegboard - White faced Perforated Hardboard (pegboard) 2440 x 1220 x 3.2mm (You can only find this stuff at timber/lumber suppliers here in the UK. Not everywhere has it in white either. The place above was only place I found that did. Ordered it online to have it picked up. Had it cut to measure.)
Hooks for Pegboard - 4" Euro Hooks
Wood for base - 1" x 2" approx. wood bars
Frame - Wood Architraving (OK tried to get framing wood but here in the UK it's so darn expensive that it wasn't affordable to frame the 1550 x 735 mm piece of pegboard so used basic architraving instead...cheap cheap!)
