Formal Living Room Becomes Fabulous Craft Room


I have a fun, fun, fun day planned for you, today!  I’ll be posting six (6) times today!  Each post will feature a wonderful “Before and After” project I’ve spotted during a previous Met Monday or from a lovely blog in my travels around the Blogsphere.

Instead of lumping all the projects into one big post, I’ve created 6 small posts that will go up throughout the day at the following times: 7:00 AM, 9:00 AM, 11:00 AM, 1:00 PM, 3 PM and 5 PM.

So stop back by during the day to catch the latest post.  You’re going to love all the Before and Afters!

Let’s get started…here’s our first featured Before and After for the day!

Christy at Beach Brights  had a “formal” living room that was begging to become a useful space.  Just look at all that space and potential!  Love the huge window!

Living Room Become Craft Sewing Room Before and After
Christy turned her living room into an amazing craft room complete with lots and lots of creative storage.  Wait until you see where she put the outlet for her craft island.  It’s a pretty amazing idea I would never have thought of.   I don’t want to spoil it, so I’ll let you read about that at her blog.
