project art.craft space + new blog design

I LOVE my new condo. It’s really small though and lacks sufficient closet space (it was built in 1930. no modern walk-in for me), so everything has to have a place or the whole apartment quickly becomes a disaster. In recent weeks I’ve decided that I need a workspace to house all my currently disorganized painting (which I will get back to) and craft supplies. All my supplies are currently thrown in giant Michaels bags and are stowed wherever I can find a spot. I don’t have a lot of extra room to work with, but I’m thinking that I can turn a wall in my tiny dining room into a craft corner. Here’s the space as it is now. I never use this desk. It stores some files and random desk-y things, but I don’t ever sit here. So, how can I transform the 2×5 space?

Here are some of my favorite craft corner inspirations, mostly from everythingetsy. I could probably create something like this using the desk I have now. Paint the desk a fun color and find a cute old hutch with doors.

I’m in love with this one. The bright colors. The closeable doors. If I could find a similar computer armoire that’s small enough, something like this could be a definite possibility.

Like I said, I lack closet space as it is, so I don’t have the necessary extra closet laying around to create this beauty. This office space is decorated completely in a double-doored closet. So charming! I want to work here every day!

Finally, check out this one from It’s two books cases latched together to make a completely hideable workspace. The website has DIY instructions, and it doesn’t appear to be TOO difficult. Something like this is on my short list.

What’s your dream work space? Want to help me create mine?!

Oh, I’m finally taking some time to redesign my blog a little. I still haven’t taken that Illustrator class, so it’s slow going {{google search: how to create a circle in Illustrator. ha}}. Still soliciting help. I’ll bring wine if you bring knowledge. How do you like the changes so far?
