Craft Room Project: Stage 1

Hello my lovelies!

I hope everyone is uber excited for the fast approaching Christmas day and that you've survived the shops and have started your wrapping! (If you haven't then you could always take a sneaky look at my wrapping posts HERE & HERE) In our house, we always seem to leave the Christmas food shop until a couple of days before and naturally, as it's something food related, I love it. To be fair, it must be a nightmare for my mum as I definitely inherited the food obsessed gene from my dad and the pair of us must be a pain in the backside in Tesco.

I love how everyone always food shops like their going to be dishing out ration books come boxing day! I remember when, shock horror, NOTHING was open on boxing day! A WHOLE DAY WITH NO SHOPS OPEN! How did people survive?! To this day, I can't go shopping or do anything other than stay in on boxing day, it just doesn't feel right to me.

I'm totally going off on a tangent here, so allow me one more, totally unrelated to the title paragraph, to say I am currently sporting a beautifully festive desktop background from Mon Carnet. It's available in English or if you prefer Français!

OK, onto what my post was originally meant to be about...


My "craft room" is a spare bedroom in our house that I have claimed as my own. It's a perfect space, perfect size and already has some storage cupboards either side of the chimney breast BUT, in typical Lisa fashion, I have a desk shoved in the corner and the whole floor space is usually a dumping ground for everything I don't want in my bedroom. It was recently painted but it is, at present, completely devoid of character, personality and workability. 

As two of the main walls are stud walls, I can't put up shelving which I initially wanted so I have been on good ol' Pinterest looking for inspiration and DIY desk tutorials. Yes. I might actually build my own desk! 

I thought I would share with you some of the craft rooms I would like to take inspiration from and it's going to be my first project of 2012. 

What do you guys think? Which room is your favorite?
