Vintage, Artsy, and Beautiful Craft Room (Kendra McCracken)


Hi all! Noelle here with a craft room tour for you guys today. I happened upon this room while looking for photos for the jar storage post I had up recently. And when I came upon this blog post at Traveling at the Speed of Light, I just stared at it for the longest time. Then I started frantically pinning photos since I just KNEW this was the next room I’d like to feature here on Craft Storage Ideas. Part of the reason this room appealed to me so much is that this is like my dream craft room. I just LOVE Kendra’s style. I love her use of vintage items for storage. I love the happy shade on the walls. I love the pops of red, and the way she describes how she stores thing apply to me too. I also don’t want to spend a lot, and I want things that can change what they store as my needs change for whatever my latest mediums are. Well enough explanations, shall I show you some eye candy from Kendra’s blog? Don’t you love how in the photo above she’s used a glass display case to store her crafty items? And on the next photo below, she uses a hen nesting box above her workspace to store alterable items.

There is all KINDS of other great storage ideas on Kendra’s blog here. I love how she made small storage cases from old instant coffee tins, and she adds so much style to everything with rustic finishes and a repeated star motif throughout the space. Kendra, I COVET your craft room! Hope you all have enjoyed this tour and I’ll see you back here soon with some more storage tips!


Take Care!
