A Room for Scrapbooking – Life's Little Details

Scrapbookers – you’ll love this transformation. Crafters too. Bonnie from Life’s Little Details transformed a guest bedroom into a fun, organized scrapbooking/craft room. It’s beautiful!

Here is her post:

Scrapbooking Room

When we moved into our 4 bedroom house several years ago we quickly realized that the spare bedroom became a dumping ground for lots of miscellaneous items. To me is seemed like wasted space. Only one time in 3 years did someone spend the night and use it as a spare bedroom. So my bright idea was to make it into a scrapbooking room for me and the girls. As always Sean was a little skeptical of my idea. So September 2009 we got to work.

Here is BEFORE:

The walls were a Navy Blue. The room is small to begin with and the dark walls definitely made it seem smaller. There isn’t a closet because the previous owner closed it off and opened the wall in the other bedroom to make a closet.
So after several layers of primer and a few layers of much brighter paint, here is the new room:

Of course I had lots of scrapbooking supplies and arts and craft supplies to fill the room.

When my scrapbooking stuff was in the basement I already had the drawer cabinets. Sean made a countertop to put on top and extended it around the wall so the girls had their own work space. We added wall cabinets and shelves. Now everything has a place.

The girls love the room and all the fun stuff they have to use to create. I love that we can all be in the room at the same time and all have our own space.

I ABSOLUTELY LOVE my room. I love that I can find everything and it is all organized. The room gets quite messy sometimes
but that is ok….proof we are enjoying and creating in our wonderful space.

I love this space! Bright, fun, organized and pretty! Thanks so much for sharing your awesome transformation, Bonnie! GREAT job!
