Addresse: Melissa in California (#112)
Meet blogger and crafter Melissa from Sacramento…
My craft room is most like the fabulous stationary design Addressee. I wanted to be more creative than to go with matching colors but the bright green with bold black and white text caught my eye immediately. The overlapping letters work with my craft room which is usually 3 feet deep in stuff and piles.
Nearly everything in the room has been handmade my me or my husband. The nightstand was a rescue from the trash, a quick coat of paint makes it match perfectly. The art on the walls is also a budget deal, I got a magazine after Jan 1 for a buck and used the black and white images as art. I used upholstery tacks to put the images on black squares of wood. I love that my threads and other notions are off the table and hanging in the fruit basket.
I finally covered all the storage with a quick curtain (sheet) from Ikea. I didn’t want to compete with the focal point of the bed so I stuck with white.The sign above the closet (if you can read it) says “The Shed” and is the one thing I took from my former craft room at our old house. My husband built me a free standing miniature house for crafting. Even though it was fully finished we called it the shed. Ok, that’s enough! Enjoy. Thanks for inspiring me to CLEAN!
