Show us your Lair! OR: One Woman's Craft Room is Another's Mess :)

I thought it was high time to record for posterity my craft room when it's all pretty for company. It won't look this way for long.

Sewing, scrapbooking, painting, making odds & ends, putting vintage things together in new ways--there is too much stuff going on in this room to hide it away from the world any longer!

There's the sewing desk on the right (was once upon a time the husband's school desk--it was necessary to make it purple) and the scrapbook table on the left. Notice the pile of "stuff to finish" on the chair? Yeah, there's a tree skirt in there for an xmas tree....uh, I've only been working on it for 3 years!


This is the table in the middle of the room. I tend to forget that it's only a few feet across and try to do 4 things on it at once! (oh, and are those projects oh-so-subtly hidden beneath? :)
Behind the table is the fabric dresser--I finally got rid of all the rubbermaid totes and have one place to keep all of the collection.

One thing I am tidy about, however, is the fabric dresser! A good friend gave me this antique dresser when she moved away--and now I get a thrill out of folding fabric and displaying it all nicely in the drawers (Hey, we all have to get our thrills somehow!)

So, show us yours! C'mon, the world wants to know what dirty secrets you're hiding in your houses....closets full of boxes of fabric? baskets stashed beneath couches full of yarn? Let it all hang out! :)

Love your fabric dresser! What a neat way to display your fabrics. My studio is generally always a wreck. Every so often I get a wild hair and try to clean it but most of the time its just totally messy. And I'm ok with that! I'm visiting from the Etsy forums :)

The dresser is my favorite part--it's so hard to store fabric in such a way that you don't forget what you have.

Neat space! Love the dresser. It's so hard to keep neat and organized!

Wow, I love the way you set up your dresser with beautifully folded fabrics. Beats me totes anyday. Also wanted to mention, I love the calm colors of the room!

I love your LAIR! I miss mine! I recently made a cross country move and haven't set my studio up yet...maybe after the holidays! *sigh...

What a great space! You've definitely inspired me to spiff-up my little area.
