Caution: craft room under renovation:

We have a room off of our dining room that we have never quite figured out a use for it. It is to close to the living room to be a TV room. The opening to this room is very large and no privacy is provided.

Ok, so as an aside - I don't believe in formal living rooms. I pay the bills at my house and if I am not company enough for the good stuff than who is. We use the good throws, burn the good candles, eat and watch tv in living room.

It is also a weird shape- it was obviously an enclosure. It is the only room in our house that has panelling( Ugh!). We have used it for a couple of parties as a bar room, but this seems to be such a waste! So I have taken over half of the room as a craft area. My area includes a drafting table- I keep my yarn below it, a card catalog, and a folding table.

I have just bought new curtains to girlie up the space. Here is a picture of the pattern from the curtains. I am not normally a purple girl, but $12 curtains- I could not pass these up at the thrift store. More to come- I will wash and hang them this weekend!

You're so lucky to have a room to dedicate to your fiber arts! Would love to see pics!

My parents painted their paneling, it looks fantastic!
