We are so excited to finally be sharing our Craft Studio that we finished last month. We completed this makeover in about 36 hours! In case you haven’t heard, I (Mallory) will finally be moving back to Arizona (15 minutes from Savannah!!!) and we wanted a space that we could lock ourselves in and bust out some major projects, blog work and brainstorming in the few hours a week we will have to work together. Aside from blogging, we each have our own “side jobs”. I run an Etsy shop selling vinyl designs for home decor and Savannah is a hair stylist (a dang good one at that! *winks*). Between our jobs, being wives and having 7 kiddos under 6 between the two of us, we have to prioritize, plan and bust out projects whenever there is an opportunity. We had a 36 hour window before flying to a conference in Salt Lake City so we busted it out!
The need for a workspace is long overdue and we are thrilled with how this one turned out. We’ve converted one of Savannah’s bedrooms into a studio space for us to work, craft, brainstorm and a place to keep our supplies organized. For now, it is all of Savannah’s crafting supplies in the storage boxes and bookshelves but when I move to Arizona, we will have access to both of our stock pile of crafting supplies, tools, paint and decor items.
The clipboards here are a super easy DIY project. We bought clipboards from Amazon here* (*affiliate links) and spray painted them with our favorite spray paint, RustOleum gold metallic spray paint*. The floral wall decals are available here in my Etsy Shop.
The bookcases were thrift store finds that Savannah found a few years ago. We painted them years ago and they were perfect for this space, don’t you think? We used Ikea storage boxes* and Kate Spade storage boxes* to organize all of the craft supplies, in the room. It’s shocking how much we were able to fit in the room after putting everything (with like items) in the boxes and drawers. Organizing makes me giddy. Can you tell?
All of the solid colored boxes are from Ikea and the printed boxes (floral, striped, polka dot) are Kate Spade. They’re just too good not to splurge on.
We completely emptied out the closet, added shelves and the pegboard. Oh, the pegboard. The easiest way to organize your handheld tools, you guys. I mean, let’s not reinvent the wheel when the pegboard works wonders. We bought the pegboard at Home Depot, had it cut to size and ordered these pegboard accessories* from Amazon to complete the space. Ours were navy and we sprayed them pink. Shocking, I know. I made the labels with my Silhouette CAMEO* in the Bauderie Script font. It’s the perfect font for labels. Pretty, dainty and readable.
These cute little shelves are from Ikea. You can get similar* (or maybe these exact ones??) here.
Could you die at the mini-marquee sign? It was fun to put our handle and a fun hashtag on it. Follow us @classyclutter on instagram!
Check out the tutorial for our sequins INSPIRE wall art here. The desk, lamp, drawers beneath the desk are all from Ikea. The fur rug is from HomeGoods. We’re obsessed with the lamp and you can even get it on Amazon here* if you don’t live near Ikea.
Don’t mind our little candy stash. You’ve GOT to have candy stash when you’re working on projects. Am I right or am I right?
Later this week we will have the DIY Paint Brush Statement Art piece that is hanging in front of the window. Isn’t it cool?? Oh, the rug is from Hobby Lobby, Black/gold (it was black/copper but we spray painted it) drum shade is from Ikea. For the light, we just took the fan blades off and mounted the shade right over the existing light fixture. Super easy! The acrylic chairs are from Amazon too*. You can get them here, we spray painted the bases gold as well.
We hope you love our space and hope you do too! If we forgot to list where an item is from, shoot us a comment or an email and we’ll answer that for you! Happy crafting friends!
