And the Winner Is.......

Thank you so much for helping me figure out how to stage the little bonus room - your input was so helpful!!  I tallied up blog comments, Facebook and some of the direct emails and a craft room was the clear winner (but the idea of adding a kid area in the room is great, I'm going to try and do that!).  The room is such a disaster now (check out this photo I took this morning), it's hard to believe it will ever look nice.

Your suggestions were fantastic.  I loved the idea of a reading/study space or a yoga studio.  And a wrapping paper space!  Wow, what a clever idea.  I heard from two people that they've recently been in houses that had an entire room devoted just to wrapping gifts.  I'm trying to get my head around that.  Do they have so many rooms they just can't decide what to do with them all?  Or do they buy lots and lots of presents!  LOL

Interestingly, the day after I posted my query, I made a field trip to IKEA (it's a 2.5 hour drive from Portland) and they had not 1, but 2 craft room displays!!!  Isn't that wild?  Or as Teri said 'I think the universe is trying to tell you something'!  I guess craft rooms are really trendy now.  And these were such great rooms, I'll definitely be using a few of their ideas (but we won't include all the red price tags).

What ideas would you steal from this room??  I love all the space for fabric!!

As always, thanks for your input and suggestions.  They're always appreciated!  And be sure and 'like' us on Facebook if you want more updates.

  1. Whoo hoo! I got a shout out from SoPo Cottage!

    1. LOL - well it is a fabulous quote!!!!

  2. I notice on the second ikea picture theres a roll of craft paper in a wooden dispenser right on the work table. I would love to have that on a craft table! handy and easy to dispense without the roll getting away from me and on the floor! (or trying to curl back up on itself)

    and those 2 shallow draws under the lowest fabric shelf are cool too. subtle and functional and attractive.

    the second room is definitely my favorite.
