Play it Again, Sam!

Hello Dear Friends!

Some of you may have noticed the link on my sidebar for "Where Bloggers Create". If you clicked on it, you would have read that today, several hundred bloggers are sharing their creative spaces. I know many of you have already seen mine, but I wanted to participate in this fun event so I'm showing it again. Like any living thing (and I do think my craft studio is living), it changes constantly. For those of you that have visited before, perhaps you'll see something new. For those of you that haven't been here before ~ Welcome!

Come in, won't you?


Hmmmm.... maybe I should have left a light on for you!

Yes! That's better. The room, although in a basement, is bright and fun! The walls on three sides are a watermelon pink, the floor is a cranberry checkerboard and most of the accessories are an antique white. I love this space. It's the place I get to be surrounded by the colors and things I love. I hope you'll enjoy your visit.



This is my stitching chair and I love it! The old garden chair was in pretty bad shape until I painted it an antique white and had some pretty cushions made for it. It's comfortable and provides a great place to stitch or read. I have a matching one that I can bring into the room if a friend comes to visit. The space is filled with things I've made, received as gifts or found at flea markets or garage sales. Nothing is expensive but everything is priceless to me! The old pink bucket is my new waste basket and the table beside my chair was an ugly old piece that I painted and distressed.





I found carpeting to be just too big of a mess and decided to paint the floor. I used several coats of white and cranberry to create the checkerboard pattern and love how it turned out. Way easier to keep clean!



Did I mention that this is a small space? It's about 9 or 10 feet wide and deep. I've managed to pack a lot in this small space however.

This is the desk I use the most (There are two desk areas in the "L" shaped configuration of the room). It has a wonderful little cabinet on top that stores some of my collections and many of my treasures are displayed on top of it. My reference books are all close at hand on either side of the cabinet.














My little t.v. corner:



This is a little cabinet I got in the bath department of a major discount retailer. It fits in my small space and holds my collection of wooden cigar boxes which hold all kinds of crafty items, my tins and a big part of my button collection.




This is a Pottery Barn wrap station that originally held rolls of wrapping paper. I have since found an antique paper dispenser and have started using white paper to wrap all presents. So, this got a little makeover and is now a quilt rack for a favorite quilt made by a dear friend, and is now home to my tomato pin cushion collection and other goodies.














These heart pin cushions hang just above a favorite picture of my husband taken on a cruise we took a couple of years ago. Sweet!



This little niche has changed a couple of times but I think I finally have it right. It's a narrow space, too small for books but perfect for storing ribbon, buttons and other things.


spools of ribbon





A stitchers favorite accessory; a flower frog reinvented as a scissor frog - the perfect place to store all those essential embroidery scissors!


Jars of vintage buttons and a few more pin cushions!


This ribbon station was a gift from my mom and I just love it to store curling ribbon and rafia ribbon. Just under the ribbon is a set of wrough iron, swinging arm hooks that hold embroidery floss. I have a collection of DMC floss that is kept on the desk in the tall bins you may have noticed. The rolling cart, though not pretty, houses a lot of my stitching tools and pattern kits. Sitting on top are two vintage cases that hold fabric.


This is one of my favorite things:



I found this paper holder/cutter at an antique mall and just loved the color and had to have it. It has now been filled with white paper and is what I will use until it runs out! No more buying wrapping paper for me! I love to tie packages with twine and raffia so I took a couple of small funnells, attached them to the top with twine and have paper and twine readily at hand.




Thank you for stopping by! If you've been here before, I hope you weren't too bored. If you've never been here before, I'm so glad you came. Be sure to check out all the blogger participating in this fun event. You're sure to be inspired and will undoubtedly find an idea or two to borrow for your own space.

Peace,
Terri

Terri, I just love your creativity to make your space all your own. So fun. I think your stitching room is just awesome. Thanks for sharing.

kluless said...

I LOVE your space and that floor is wonderful. I would like to tear out my carpet and do something similar since I have a concrete floor but ohmygosh the work to empty the room!! I'm going to try your funnel idea for the string. Thank you so much for sharing.

Julie M said...

Beautiful space Terri! I hadn't seen it before. DH asked how you did the floor, I told him you painted it, he thought it was most excellent!

You have done a marvelous job creating a room that is fun and comfortable.

Thanks for sharing!

stefanie said...

I love it!!! I did my floor pink checker board, what did you put on top, I haven't put anything on mine..and yours looks so shining!!! thanks for sharing!

Cole said...

Wow, your craft room is fantastic! I would love to get lost in there for awhile... :)

cynthialeedesigns said...

Terri,
I think that when I first found your blog, it was this room that brought me here...loved it then and I love it now. What a wonderful place to create!!
~Cindy~

lenna said...

Terri I love your room and I pray someday I will be able to have one like that too.
I enjoyed visiting your space. I can see why you love to be down there.
Am thinking of painting my bedroom floor so it will be easier to keep. Yours looks great!
God Bless ~

Andrea said...

Oh Terri, your sweeet room is just such wonderful eye candy!! I enlarged every single picture and savored every detail!! There are so many wonderful things about your space to love...I'm bookmarking this post so I can return again and again to look at it for inspiration. It can never be tiresome to look at, in fact, completely the opposite! So much to love.

This is going to sound really dumb, but I have to ask anyway...what are those hand form things called? Ring holders? I love how you have various stitching bits hanging from them and would love to copy this idea because I have so many hanging stitched things and have trouble figuring out how to display them....

Ok, I should be sleeping, but I'm going back to look some more!! Thank you so much for sharing!

Love ya!

Maggie said...

Terri i never tire of looking at your craft room, its like an aladins cave full of wonderful things, and i love it!
Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos again :-)

Mylene said...

WOW! I LOVE your craft room, very neat and tidy!! Thanks for sharing.

Bertie said...

Ab Fab, and could imagine just sitting there and taking it all in!!
The floor is awesome :-)) and so are all your other treasures.

karin said...

Hi Terri,
I just love your space!!! I work out of my dining room and am always putting things away so it looks fairly neat!
How lucky...and you designed it so pretty. Love the shakers for buttons. Great idea!! And the white cabinet is darling!!!

Terri, your studio is wonderful and looks like such a fun place to create. Love your floor and all the cool button jars. Thanks for the tour.
~Nan

Alice said...

Terri,I loved visiting your craft room as I have never seen it before. Lots of attention to detail and eye candy all around. I can see why its your favourite room, a place to express yourself in feminine colours and to do what you love. Those build in cupboards are really practical. I hop between the dogs room and the attic (craft room) room in our house. Too cold and lonely in the craft room and really cosy and surrounded by my bulldogs in the basement room. I spend my winter's down there as its the warmest room in the house. I don't have everything at hand but its there that I stitch. Thanks for sharing your lovely room. : )

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

For crafting in a basement, you have an amazing space. You did an excellent job on the floor, and the wall colors are so bright and cheery. I love how you have surrounded yourself with some any vintage pieces.

Your cabinets look built in, and they are so great for holding everything out of sight, something I would love to be able to do. Thanks for sharing your lovely and well appointed studio.

Glenna said...

Terri, I loved looking at your creative space! I love the idea of the floor too--carpet is a total pain. Everything has been so lovingly and creatively gathered and repurposed--you are a clever woman (you really need to work for one of those dec. magazines as a stylist/buyer!) You could really show "Country Living" a thing or two!

Littlebit said...

Oh, Terri..I love your floor! LoL! What a wonderfully cozy, bright space to do what you love. Thanks for sharing.

Loraine said...

Love you work space Terri! I could sit and look every picture for hours. So fun!
Hugs to you dear friend.

Scrap for Joy said...

Hi Teri~
What a beautiful space you have created for yourself! I love the shade of watermelon pink and it sets off the creamy colored painted furniture beautifully. When we converted a guest bedroom into my workspace, we made the mistake of putting carpeting down...I won't do that again.. Love your floor!
I'm so glad I stopped by~

DreamChallenge said...

Terri, the space just says Welcome, come on in. Taking the used and making it useful is a treasure I too love. The most fun part was all the containers you so nicely found a use for in your space. Thank you for sharing and come see me. Jan

Terri,
I've been following your blog for a while and you never cease to amaze me. You have such a creative mind and how you work with and display your creative projects, amazes me each week. Your craft room is fabulous! I too have wanted a checked floor for years and because I've seen how well it looks in your room, I think I'm up to the challenge. Your blog is inspiring, creative, funny, informative, and a visual joy. I look forward to the beginning of the week as I'm hopeful you were out finding something that I would think is useless but that you would see as a treasure and make something delightful out of it. I have craft room envy everytime I read your blog. Thanks for sharing your amazing and creative talents.

Catherine said...

Your craft room is one of the nicest spaces I've seen Terri! It might be small, but I think you've done wonderful things with the space. I love all your little knick-knacks and doo-dads - they really add interest! And I'm flattered that you have a pic of my neighbourhood on your inspiration board :)

Anonymous said...

Absolutely marvelous! You have provided me a lot of ideas for my own craft room. Thanks for sharing!

Andrea said...

OK, dummie me figured out about the "hand thing" lol! Such a great idea, that I'm going to copy :-)

Also, I'm getting that CHS little sampler before it's OOP, because seeing yours makes it a MUST do.

I've come back over and over to admire....

live a colorful life said...

I LOVE your floor! I so want to pull out the carpet in my sewing room. And all the interesting little touches: the scissors in the wooden shoe. Thanks so much for letting us see your creative space!

Rachel S said...

Your craft room looks so lovely and organized. Very nice. It makes me hang my head in shame at the state of my own room.

I have that Maryland Sampling book you show in one of your pictures. It's a lovely book. I even managed to figure out that someone in my town had a sewing school, and figured out where it actually was. The building is still there.

Michelle said...

Terri, I adore your room! What a wonderful space you've created for yourself. Thanks for taking us on this little tour - wish I'd been there in person!

Terri said...

What to comment on first...the floor the furnishing the storage...I loved it all!

Jillayne said...

Your room is beautiful! I simply adore that floor - what a terrific idea. The colours make it look so bright and cheery and all your treasures stored in such nifty containers add a lot of charm. Just lovely!

Hi Terri!
I am still trying to make my way thru all of the studio's and yours...stopped me right in my tracks and I had to back things up and look again!

Have a Wonderful week!

Blessings and hugs,

Cathy B said...

Teri - it's always a treat to visit your special room. Of course, the only thing better - would be to stitch and create in it. You are a lucky gal!

Love to Stitch said...

Incredible!!! It is absolutely perfect. You have made use of every space in there-- just fabulous!!!! It looks like a spread out of a magazine!!!! All those ribbons, scissors, love the paper cutter :). I remember when you guys were fixing it up last year, watching the progress of the checkered floor. It is definately a spot I would enjoy working in too!!!!

Pam @ Frippery said...

What a happy creative space. That floor just blew me away! Great storage pieces too.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

I am so glad that you visited me so I could come see your space. How charming! You have such wonderful storage ideas and that painted floor~sigh.

I think I may incorporate a few of your ideas into my even smaller space of a closet. :)

Kathy said...

Wow. I am sooooooooo jealous. :) I wish I were that organized. LOL

What an awesome beautiful space you have created.

Connie said...

It's darling, sugar!! I love love love the red and white checkered floor, which I'm a sucker for checks. You're very creative with the funnels for twine and the paper holder/cutter is simply a dream of most women. I just love everything and it doesn't have to be a big space either; mine isn't. Stunning, chick!
xoxo,
Connie

Katsui Jewelry said...

Wowzers! I just love it! I love your colors and can't believe that you painted that floor with utter perfection. I love that you have a paper holder and an enough paper on hand to last a long time...as well as cool things to tie with. You frog is a great idea and I chuckled at the scissors in your wooden shoe form.

If you wish, come and visit our blog. My thirty-year-old daughter and I have been making jewelry together for fifteen years. She just gave the blog to me three months ago as a gift. I was thrilled! We are loving it! We are not organized enough right now to participate...sadly enough.

Fantastic space! Love the floor!!!

Lyn said...

Terri,
I love your basement studio/dream den! I've looked at a lot of creative spaces, but your's seems to me to be the best use of space, and most creative ideas for productivity. Lucky you! Now I just need to get my act together and re-organize my space with some of your fantastic ideas!!!! Thanks so much for sharing.

Dorthe said...

I so love the colors, on your walls,and the floor is gorgeus.
Such a fantastic work you did ,to turn this room into you own. A lovely place to visit.

Deb said...

The room looks great, especially your revamped shelving area. I need me some shelves too - they add so much for decorating, etc. Even though you think that your space is small, it looks big with charm.

Jan @ Dream Challenge said...

Terri, anytime you want to do a trade for those knitting needles you found this weekend, just let me know. Happy to knit you a scarf or neck warmer and give those needles a loving home. Just tell me the colors you like. Seriously, do not let them get away from you. You found a treasure. Jan @ Dream Challenge

Miss Sandy said...

Oh my goodness, this room must be like a heavenly slice of summer year round with its watermelon pallet! I love your studio from its velvet hearts, sweet beaded strawberries, and tomato pin cushion collection. What a light, bright, airy place to create in. Thank you for sharing your creative haven.

Suzanne said...

I absolutely adore your stitching room. You have such a wonderful collection of stitching bits and pieces. What a wonderful eye for decoration you have.

Sherry said...

as always, enjoyed my visit to your studio! see you soon :0)

Romeo said...

What a cute space!!! My favorite though has to be the niche where you have ribbons! Beautiful!!!! And I so agree that the floor is so much easier than carpet - we ordered hardwood flooring last week, yep, going to change out the carpet for something much more sturdy and functional for a studio! Love the use of the painted squares, but I think I'd better leave mine alone ;)

Thanks for sharing your creative space!

I am in love with your space. Never, ever would I have imagined this to be in the basement if you hadn't mentioned it in your post. I adore the colors! I'm in awe. It's so cozy and comfy and looks like you could create for hours in here. I love how you've displayed your treasures and have put them to good use as well. Fantastic!

Saltbox Treasures said...

Pretty space. Love what you did with the floors. I can't believe you painted them. Is it concrete? Did you have to use a special sealer on top of the paint? Love what you did with the funnels. You have packed alot in a small space!
Thanks for visiting my site.

I've seen your space before but seeing it again just amazes me! What a lovely spot you have made for yourself :o)

I haven't taken pictures of my new spot because it's not done yet :o( It doesn't house all the adorable antiques that you have either ;o)

Melly said...

Oh Terri, your space is lovely, I really like the floor that must have taken a while to do. You have done such a great job of utilizing the space and making it so gorgeous. Thank you so much for your visit and for leaving such a sweet comment. I hope you have a super weekend!

MyLifesAStitch said...

Don't know how I missed this one... could be because I haven't exactly been keeping up lately.

Anywho.

Thanks for the new tour! I really really love your room - it inspires me to keep on trucking along to get mine as cozy and personal. I just love it. It's funny b/c it sounds like yours & mine are about the same size, but yours seems waaay bigger! :) Thanks for the close up of the books! I love seeing what folks have on their shelves!

Lisa said...

What a darling little room! You have maximized every inch and it is just incredible! LOVE IT!!!

Love your painted floor. I did that in our old house, but it didn't hold up like yours has.

Warm blessings,

Ok Terri...I am just so in love with this room! It is in all the colors I love and everything has a place to be - so organized! Your floor is to die for gorgeous....thanks for sharing your space!

Hi Terri, I like your space, the colors are wonderful and that floor, way cool. Great idea to go with only white paper for gifts, sure makes that whole process easier. I like how you have recreated items for use in your room, I can see why your love it so much

Love your space, its really nice and inspirational for me (as Im still working on my studio space, that is also down in the basement).

Love the floor idea (and you did a great job on it), the wrapping paper holder and the twine holders. You really have a great space, thanks for sharing it again this year... this way I got to see it too : )
