The Classy Clutter Craft Studio Reveal

The Classy Clutter Craft Studio Reveal

Classy Clutter Craft Studio

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!

Classy Clutter Craft Studio Makeover

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.

DIY Metallic Clipboards

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.

Crafting in the studio

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?

Organizing Supplies Bookshelves

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.

Bookshelf Vignette

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.

Book Ledges

DIY Marquee Sign

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!

DIY Sequins Wall Art

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.

Classy Clutter Laptop

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?

Desk Vignette

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!

    …can I just come visit for day?! The whole room is amazing! I think it would be difficult to get much done, though, with so many pretty things to look at everywhere, ha! 😀

    I adore that y’all will spray-paint anything gold that you think needs it–I am one of those who’s always thinking, “Gold? Yes, definitely.” But then I lose my nerve. You can’t argue with the results here, though. So glam, so bright, so gorgeous. Long may you enjoy and be inspired.

    Have you covered the paintbrush-stenciled curtain in a previous post? I’m loving that too. Oh, and the throw pillow on your beautiful nailhead trim side chair–that fabric! I need it for reasons!

      Thanks so much for your kind words! The paintbrush art tutorial will be shared on Thursday and the fabric from the throw pillow is from Tonic Living I believe.

      The floral pillow was a custom design from our friend at KB Cute on Etsy. We supplied her with fabric from Tonic Living. Hope that helps!

    Your desk where did you bought it? Also the shelf for books and frames that you have on the wall? Do you have a DIY paint brush? I had just bought today all the material to do the INSPIRE board…. Thanks

    Stunning room ladies! I just started boxing the clusters in my open shelves and it make for so much more room (and less eye-overload)!

    I second the above commenter: where’d you get that darling mini marquee sign?? Was it an earlier DIY? I must know!

    Absolutely adore this room. I tried making the clipboards and they aren’t shiny like the ones in the picture. I bought the same clipboards and spray paint. Am I missing something, how do I get them to be shiny?
