MY FIRST TIME EVER TO HAVE A "WHERE I CREATE" ROOM


I thought I would share with you my new sewing, craft, decorations and tea time storage room in our walkout basement.  In all these years, this is the first time I ever had such a great place.  It isn't intended to be so much beautiful as it is functional.  I can find whatever I'm looking for now.  I also have a double closet around to the left and a place for the ironing board.

The two old but very sturdy file cabinets hold recipes, craft ideas, etc.  I have lots of shelving to store tea things, sewing stuff, seasonal decorations, linens, etc too!


And a late addition to this post - the view out the window
of the Koi Pond!



This is why we moved to Missouri - my little granddaughter
 Lily and the Fairy Garden she made at our house

What a functional ...and lovely creative space you have! Your grand daughter looks to be about the age of mine. We get to keep ours several days and nights a week while our daughter is a flight nurse....what a blessing she is! She is our youngest, we were working when the others were little and we didn't get to keep them as much. You have made so much progress on your new home, I am truly amazed...hugs...

Bernideen this space is PERFECT! When I move/downsize I hope to have a space similar to store not only my tea things, but depression glass and vintage dishes. In no way do I have as much as you, but a substantial amount and want to be able to have it in an area that I can easily access for changing seasons! Love your new home! Your granddaughter is adorable! A very loving reason to move to Missouri! :-)

How very perfect to have your own functional and beautiful space. I see a lot of happy crafting in your future, perhaps even with that beautiful granddaughter :-)

What a fantastic organized space! It looks very functional and a pleasant place to work. Your granddaughter is beautiful, by the way! And it looks like she inherited quite a bit of her grandmother's creativity. :D

Okay, Bernideen...time for a coffee table book of tea parties! You have everything you need and more. Your granddaughter Lily must love hanging out at your place! (I have a special fondness for her name as it was my grandmother's name.) The fairy garden is wonderful!

Bernideen,
Goof for you!! What a wonderful space!! Love all the room for storage that you have! When my oldest son moved out several years ago, I took over his room and turned it into my Craft Room!! It is wonderful to have a room for your own, isn't it?? Thanks so much for sharing!! You have really got a lot done in your "new" home !! Your grand daughter is darling and so is the fairy garden!!

Hugs,
Deb

That's a great space!

What a lovely young girl Lily is, and how wonderful to have that time with her! Her fairy garden is sweet!

Bernideen, I can look at all sorts of fabulous, extravagant rooms decorated by famous interior designers and not feel so much as a twinge of envy. But *this* space? I'm soooo envious! Sewing machine (that doesn't have to be drug out of the closet every time) in front of the window, handy work table just behind, all that sensible and convenient shelving. Wonderful!

My granddaughters were here last week--our reason for moving to North Carolina! I understand completely, XOXO

Oh, golly, I'm jealous...lol. My basement space is on the list of many things to get accomplished this year. Yours looks great and function really is what it is all about. Thanks for sharing, Sandi

Gina said...

Bernideen, I am in love with your craft & teapot room! I have the very same shelves but mine aren't as nicely organized as yours. :-)

I am impressed by your large creative space! How lucky you are! Enjoy!! Nancy

Oh I would love to have all that space inside the house. I have rolling stainless steel shelves in the garage for my storage. We have the same reason for moving and your granddaughter is so cute. I bet she is so happy to have you around....Christine

The Charm of Home said...

That is an awesome room too! I want that tea storage! Such a cute little garden too! Thanks for sharing at Home Sweet Home!

I'd be happy looking at all those teapots and that window is amazing. I've told people my study/crafting room is my reward for the empty nest.
