Busting at the Seams..a Craft Room

So my craft room is located directly off of my living room and has no doors...can you see where this is going?? Yea..not a pretty sight. I am a spur of the moment, may only have 10 minutes before I have to leave the house, but I'm starting a project kinda girl. This usually results in a craft room that looks like an F5 tornado has just passed through...I think one of the reasons it's so hard to keep clean and organized is because the space is used for too many things. I had ALL my scrapbook stuff crammed in there, ebay shipping supplies, crafts of all kinds, sewing machine & supplies, things that need to be sold, donated, etc..the list could go on, you get the point.
My solution was to create a 2nd space for me & some of my {stuff}. Here is what I came up with, without spending any money and doing almost all the work myself.

I took about half of the stuff from my upstairs craft room & put it in my "new" basement space. **{this is an unfinished basement}
I had this big shelving unit in the basement already, just moved it & filled it up.

I have everything organized & in plain sight :)
This is a view looking the other direction. It's my little guy's playroom. He was so kind to share with his momma ♥
I love this sweet little rusty utility cart my sister found me at a yard sale this summer. I found that pretty lampshade at Lowe's for $3 :)
I am so happy with the way it all came together. My upstairs space is now uncluttered and clean and I have this nice new space to make a mess in!!

To celebrate the 1st day of Autumn this weekend I am sharing my pumpkins with you. This was a super easy project, inspired by this post at You Craft Me Up blog. It thrills me to no end when I have everything I need to do a project I come across!! We had some 4 x 4 wood post pieces left over from when my husband built our fence. I am so glad we didn't toss them out. They make super cute pumpkins :)

Happy Autumn and have a fabulous weekend.

I have made progress on my secret project. Here's a look at what I am done with so far!!

Photo overload ahead.

Look at that color contrast..
Before and After.

I had been wanting to paint my dining room chairs for a long time, just hadn't gotten up the nerve. I am glad I did. Each chair will be a different color. 2 down, 2 to go!!

I only spent $17 on paint. Woohoo :)

Here is the step by step process I used :)  Love her blog ♥
