Building and Designing a Craft Room

Welcome to the 42nd Metamorphosis Monday!

For this Met Monday, I’m taking you back to Bonnie’s house! Recently, Bonnie generously gave us a tour of her gorgeous kitchen and her amazing dish room. Well, hold on to your hats because Bonnie has a Craft Room, too! Yep..a fabulous creative space that you are going to love every bit as much as you loved her Dish Room! Bonnie, that does it…we are ALL moving in with you, girlfriend! Hope you have lots of spare bedrooms!

Here’s the space Bonnie’s wonderful hubby, Leon, converted into a fabulous craft room.

In this pic, construction is just getting underway. See that big wall on the side there?

It’s going to get a triple window so Bonnie will be able to take in the awesome view that surrounds their home.

The window has been installed in this pic.

Lots of good insulation…

These french doors are going to take the place of the garage door.

They will go right here…

Looking good!

Sheetrock walls are up…

Painting has begun…

And look…the flooring is going in!

I love the black and white checkered floor…makes me think of MacKenzieChilds china. Β Bonnie told me her husband, Leon, did most of the work himself, including the flooring, insulation, sheetrock, electrical and plumbing. He also, assisted with the cabinetry and window installation!

When Bonnie renovated her kitchen, she saved the cabinets…and they were the perfect fit for her new craft room! Brilliant!

Countertops are in!

Leon spray painted some old maple chairs that had belonged to Bonnie’s Mom with a few coats of black paint for seating in Bonnie’s new Craft room!

Ready to seeΒ how it Bonnie’s Craft room turned out?

AFTER:

Bonnie told me the chandelier used to hang in her entry and was a garish gold color. It got a nice coat of ivory paint and looks beautiful here in her new Craft room! I love the mural above the sink! Let’s go see it up close.

This room does double duty as Bonnie’s study, too.

Fabulous work space…sooo much wonderful storage!

Perfect place to wrap all those gifts!

Organized Craft Room

All you creative Crafters out there…I know you recognize some of the supplies Bonnie has in her Craft Room. I see a great rubber stamp collection.

Craft Room Design with Lots of Storage

So beautifully organized! This room reminds me of the fabulous rooms shown in the book, Where Women Create: Inspiring Work Spaces of Extraordinary Women by Jo Packham.

Bonnie, thank you for sharing this amazing space! You’ve provided us sooo much inspiration and great ideas by sharing your beautiful Craft Room!

    Okay, I'm officially jealous of Bonnie (ha, ha). Between the dish room and this craft room, she really is blessed with some great spaces (not to mention dishes). Go Bonnie and thanks, Susan for sharing.

    OMG……..are you kidding me?!? I think the only way I could forgive her is if she invited us over for a visit and set us up with a craft project. Bonnie is officially the luckiest woman on the planet!

  6. I know people who would kill for less πŸ™‚ I would LOVE to win the wreath. Thanks for the heads up–I really did not know Colonial Candle had anything but candles. I loved their reindeer tealight holders and signed up for the email! Thanks for giving us access to Bonnie's fabulous room!

  17. Bonnie's craft space is simply amazing. She must have so much fun working in that beautiful space.

    I love the wreath in today's give-away. I looked at Colonial Candles site and I would have to pick the gold and silver pinecone ornament set.

    Oh, wow, amazing doesn't even touch describing this room! I could live in there…all that storage and space, plus a fridge and microwave, what else do you need?!

  33. Elizabeth (blue clear sky) says:

    Wow, Susan, that is a great space. So much storage and I especially like the large work table. It was great that her husband worked so hard to make her dream a reality.

  34. Just checked out the Colonial Candle site and they have so many pretty things, but my favorite was the Large Silver Pillar Lantern. I would love to have a set of those.

    What a great giveaway week to get ready for the holidays.

  35. Fifi Flowers says:

    LOVE the black and white flooring… FAB room!

  36. Anonymous says:

    Susan, you have never told us what Bonnie "does". You said she has an office in that beautiful craft room, so I'm curious if her vocation is the same as her avocation. Jackie, A huge fan.

  37. Such a beautiful space! My wee little craft room is jealous :o)
    Thanks for hosting another great Met Monday…I love seeing what everyone's doing.
    peace.

  38. Would love to have that wreath…thanks

  39. Bonnie's craft room is amazing! As a floral designer who works with silks, I would LOOOOOVE a space like that!
    Love the CC wreath! I will go there now and leave a comment about something there that I loove too!

  40. What an amazing and inspiring place to be creative! She is very kind to share her special spot with us. Thank you also, Susan, for posting these great pictures and for hosting Met Monday again. How kind of you to have a week of give-aways too!
    Best wishes, NM.

    Also, the giveaway is wonderful. Such a beautiful wreath. I went to Colonial Candle and signed up for their emails and I also took a look around and would love the silver triple taper candle holder. Thanks for the great giveaways. Hugs, Marty

  43. Susan,
    Thanks for showing that wonderful room and the inspiration it will bring to many others.

    Susan,
    You never disappoint us. Bonnie's
    craft room is outstanding. She must have such fun in there with all that room to work and play.

    I also checked out Colonial Candle
    and have been debating on ordering the Large White Urn Pillar Candle
    Holder l4.5", maybe two.
    I did sign up for the e-mail from them and look forward to seeing their sale items.

  53. Well, I am trying hard to not covet, but this is getting ridiculous! Such a cool place to create! I think the little sign on the pretty shelf must say it all "dreams do come true", for Bonnie that is;). She is blessed in many ways. Love the wreath too! I am so ready for the holidays. Thanks for the chance to win. I am a follower:)

  54. Maryann @ Domestically-Speaking says:

    I'm having storage envy! I'd love to be entered into the wreath drawing.

  55. Jess @ Frugal with a Flourish says:

    Love the craft room! The space is great and the shelving and storage is phenomenal, but the true clincher for me was the chandelier! Love it!

    Oh and I would love to be entered in for the wreath! That is beautiful!

  59. Susan, I think Bonnie has a terrific husband! First he adds a storage room for all her dishes, and now he builds her a craft room. I'm in total awe of these two spaces….they aren't just a little space either. How wonderful for Bonnie that she has these wonderful spaces because she is definitely someone who obviously makes excellent use the both spaces. If I had to pick between the two, it would be a very difficult decision. Fortunately, Bonnie didn't have to choose. Thanks for sharing. This is a terrific Met Monday post.

  60. Bonnie's craft room is amazing!! All that space, and those cabinets, and the storage…I'm drooling!!
    Susan, thanks so much for the chance to win that gorgeous wreath…I'm heading over to Colonial Candle's website right now.

  61. Great giveaway and makeover!!! Awesome!

  62. Wow, Bonnie's craft room is just gorgeous! What a wonderful space in which to be creative.

    Susan, I love the luster wreath. Here's a link to a mosaic pillar holder I really like: http://www.colonialcandle.com/amber-golden-mosaic-pillar-candle-holder.aspx?categoryid=6

    I'll do a post on my blog about your giveaway! Colonial Candle totally rocks!

  64. I so enjoy your ideas for the home. Homemaking is very important to me not only for my husband and myself, but for our extended family when they visit. I look forward to more posts.

  65. Just signed up for Colonial Candle's email! Thanks!

  66. Bonnie and Leon appear to be very lonely people and since I am a very giving person, I volunteer to move in with them. Please forward their address :). Great room!!

    THe pillar candle holders are just what I need for a new look on my mantel. DD was saying so this evening. I need to simplify. They would be perfect.

  68. Sewconsult says:

    With the microwave, frig & storage & work space, I see only 2 reasons to leave that room…bathroom & sleep.

    That room is the best use of space for crafting, sewing or any artistic endeavor…EVER!

  70. I cannot believe all the cabinet space. Those cabinets just look beautiful with the room. I am bugged eyed as I LOVE french doors and one can always use more storage space. Thank you Susan and Bonnie for allowing us to drool over your craft/office space. You have one awesome hubby there Bonnie. I would love to win the give away. I went to the site and found the milti tealight holder, that I fell in love with after seeing it on one of Susan's blogs. I also signed up for their email.

  71. Julia @ Hooked on Houses says:

    Wow! That craft room is amazing! It's HUGE. I can't even imagine how wonderful it would be to have a workspace like that.

    P.S. What a fun giveaway! Love that wreath. πŸ™‚

  75. Susan, I have enjoyed the posts showing us Bonnie's incredible craft room,her wonderful dish room and her beautiful kitchen. Even though I don't have the space to copy what she has, I can glean some great ideas on how to make my spaces function better.

    Thank you for opportunity to take part in your give-a ways. I love the wreath!! I really like the gold and silver pine cone ornaments set from Colonial Candles. I have been receiving emails from them since I ordered a gift for a friend. Great quality-I've been pleased with everything.

  84. I think the wreath is beautiful and what a sweet husband to build such a nice space for a craft room. Now I'm curious to see what creations come out of that great work space.

  85. I would love to move into Bonnie's house for about a month!!!
    The craft room is fantastic..how lucky her hubby is so talented himself..a definite keeper!

  87. In my wildest dreams….I would have a craft room just.like.that!

  88. Only 54 day till Christmas?? Please say it ain't so!! The only thing that distracted me from my approaching-holiday-agony is that I quickly developed a crush on Leon.

    teri @ acraftyclan

  93. Thank you Susan and Bonnie for letting us all see this inspiring creative space.

  94. I would say Bonnie has it all. A husband that "gets" her wants, a huge craft room, a dish room & a fabulous kitchen and dining room. She's a lucky lady!

  95. What a fabulous room to work in…just love the vaulted ceiling! And the mural is wonderful and fills the space perfectly.

  96. Brummygirl says:

    Well that does it!! I was in awe of the dish room but now I am positively drooling over the craft room.
    We downsized a year ago when hubby retired so I lost my craft room so..can I move in with you Bonnie?!!
    I have a very handy hubby too but cannot convince him I need an extension for my painting and crafts….*sigh*

  102. Tara@ Just Devine Style says:

    Some Day! LOVE IT. I need a towel to wipe up the drool it is a beautiful room.

  103. Anonymous says:

    Now that room is a gal's dream! While those chairs are adorable, I wouldn't want to have to sit very long in them. Don't look very comfortable to me; I'd have to have a chair with wheels on it. I have the perfect chairs in my sunroom. You think Bonnie would hold a scrapping event for all of us? Not only does she have lots of rubber stamps, but I saw lots of scrapbooking papers stored there. Does Bonnie live near you? I thought I saw mountains in the background out her office window. I love the fake window with the view of a beautiful island above her work area. Sure was smart of her to keep the old cabinets. Her kitchen didn't look that big for all of those cabinets to come out of there. Smart woman and very handy husband. Thanks for sharing!

  104. I love the kitchen! It is so beautiful~

    I'm sorry, I just can't take this anymore. Inspiration overload! Am sooooo in awe of everything I see here. I can't keep up. Must go and lie down…….

  120. Its So Very Cheri says:

    WOW–you're gonna get me in trouble from drooling on the computer keyboard–if I zap the computer my hubbie will want to know what happened, then I have to explain the drooling problem. I actually have a drawing of a floorplan for a dream house with a huge craft room/home school room–similar stations.

    Thank you for a great visual of my dream room.

  121. I love the color scheme in the room…I think all the bloggers should have a party there…it's big enough!!

  122. Hi Susan
    That studio looks like something out of a magazine.

  141. Hartwood Roses says:

    This space is fabulous!! Thank you very much for sharing with us … there are so many ideas here.

    Connie in Hartwood

  142. Wow, that wreath is gorgeous!!!!

    That craft room is spectacular. Hubby would have a heart attack if I added that to his honey do list but oh how I'd love to have a space like that.

  143. I love the Fragrance Express candle with simply vanilla. It's a safe, no mess fragrant home accessory. I'd love to smell it!

  144. Oh, be still my heart! I think I'm having chest pains….what an awesome work room & what a wonderful DH!! Bonnie is one lucky gal to have such a sweet & handy hubby as Leon.

    Susan, you've already got me moving my BIG mirror to a different spot in my dining room for Christmas…(hubby is NOT happy with you) :-p Ever since I saw YOUR wreath on your mirror, I've wanted to do the same thing. Hey, I only copy from the best, ya' know. LOL
    I would love to win this beautiful giveaway & it would be especially appropriate in my house, since I do gold & white for Christmas everywhere but in the kitchen. (That room gets traditional colors, for the grands.)

    I can't thank you enough for your great inspirational ideas & tips. I'll be stopping at TJMaxx this morning to look for that cute cake topper. πŸ™‚
    BNOTP ROCKS!!!

  145. ~ ~ Ahrisha ~ ~ says:

I spray so much outside and never thought to contain the overspray that way. Good job on the met. Favorite as of late though is the dish closet. Enjoy all your posts and ideas.

  222. That is just unbelievable!

    Does Bonnie do this just for fun, or does she have a business?

    I wonder how many bloggers called their spouses over to look at this!

  254. Thanks again for the chance to win and the free shipping code at Colonial Candle. Couldn't make up my mind so I ordered and I ordered and I ordered. This could be a dangerous trend. Am eager to try the "farmers market" fragrance since it is a weekly (at a minimum)summer excursion for my family. Also looking forward to the Christmas scents. Thanks again.

  255. It is so inspiring to see all of the beautiful rooms, porches, crafts, table settings and floral arrangements. I'm brand new to BNOTP, but I can assure you I will come back every day to learn a new technique or decorating idea. I love the wreath and can't wait to see how it is used by the winner. thanks for a lovely site.

    What a wonderful house Bonnie has! And what an outstanding husband!!! I thought mine was good when he enclosed an area of the basement for my ceramics studio, but Bonnie's craft room is amazing beyond words!

    Your blog is awesome and my favorite day of the week is Thursday when I can see all the beautiful tablescapes. Thank you!

    That's not a craft room, that's a craft palace!! WOW!!! I wish I had a room like that to work on all of my projects!! My little 9' x 11' office will have to do for now πŸ™‚

    Love the wreath — but with 284 comments so far, it's going to be tough to win it!! I just may have to take advantage of the BNOTP deal πŸ™‚
