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…
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 MacKenzie–Childs china. 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 see how it Bonnie’s Craft room turned out?
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.
Lots and lots of fabulous storage!
This room does double duty as Bonnie’s study, too.
Fabulous work space…sooo much wonderful storage!
Perfect place to wrap all those gifts!
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.
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!
