Craft Room Tour–part 3

This week I’ve been showing you around my creative space.

You can see the previous days HERE and HERE.


Shabby Art Boutique - craft room 3


So come on in and see the rest of my craft room.

The gorgeous embroidered bag, which is holding a vase of tulips this week, was made for me by my lovely creative friend Kris of Tag Along Teddies. It’s actually my sewing bag, but it is reassigned to other duties this week.

There’s another very special handmade bag hanging on one of the shelf units. You get a look at it in part 2 of the tour. It was made for me by my gorgeous long time friend Vikki from Sew Useful Designs. Vik designed and made it for me when I was leaving Melbourne to live up here on the mid north coast. It is a shoulder bag that contains a sketch pad and graphite pencils. To this day is is still my sketch bag and is always packed ready to head off on an outdoor sketching adventure.

Having these handmade gifts and other beautiful creations like my art journals made by my friend Anna, fill my craft room with inspiration. I appreciate the creativeness and talent of my friends and think of them often while creating.


As you can see, one wall of my room has half windows right the way across.

They face south, so there’s no direct sunlight in this room, which is a good thing when you live in a warm sub-tropical climate.

My craft room is on the second level, which makes it nice and private too.


Shabby Art Boutique - craft room 4


This is the wall I showed you in part 1 of the tour.

The view out through the door gives you an indication of how lofty the ceilings are. That’s an open space over the first level that you can see past the landing.

Looking back the other way you can see the west facing wall with more storage area. The shelf unit holds my favorite magazines and books. I had 3 of these for magazines in my old studio, so I have had to purge and cull my collection.

The cupboard holds my paints, palettes and brushes.

Once again, I’ve utilized all the available space above and on my storage units.


Shabby Art Boutique - craft room 7


I love having my desk in front of the window, so I can access the natural light.

This desk is my original one that used to be black…. it’s now a matching soft aqua that is more fitting with this room.

After everything was repainted, my black chair just didn’t fit in… it was too harsh amongst all this pastel prettiness, so I pulled it apart and painted it white, recovered the chair base and made a matching slip cover for the top half.


Shabby Art Boutique - craft room 1


I’m loving having more time again to spend my days in my craft room.

Being creative is what makes me happy…

And would you believe, I’m currently working on Christmas 2014!

      Thank you Toni. It honestly is very peaceful. I think the wall colour and the muted light just make it feel so calm.
      Thanks for touring my craft room with me this week.

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thanks Toni. It’s my little sanctuary away form the real world. K xx

  2. How nice to have such pretty space to create….! It’s so beautiful, everything!

  3. Oh KerryAnne, everything is so beautiful. You have officially motivated my lazy butt to get my act together. I am going turn my hoarding room into a craft room now. Thank you for inspiring me!

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thank you Victoria. I can honestly recommend having a dedicated crafting room… preferably one with a door, so you can close it when it gets messy 😉
      I look forward to seeing your, as I know it will be gorgeous. K xx

  4. with this pretty room to inspire you, i’m thinking the xmas issue will be amazing….again:)

    • Kerryanne says:

      Aww… thanks Lynn. I’ll have to stop staring at my patchwork door and gets some work done now 😉
      K xx

  5. What a gorgeous place to work and dream of Christmas .
    Your craft room is lovely and so nicely organized..:)

  6. This is gorgeous, Kerryanne! Simply stunning. What an amazing job 😉

  7. Such a beautiful space. I love your design style.

  8. Everything in the room works together so perfectly. I love (ok adore) that chair! I can’t believe you pulled it apart and basically did what we call “fai da te” (basically You make/made it!)

    • Kerryanne says:

      Thanks Madaline. I’ll let you in on a secret…. I love that chair too!! I’ve had that chair for a long time and it is so comfy. The chair pad was starting to crack and split and was looking terrible, but still really nice to sit in. When I painted it, I removed the arms and left them off. Covering the chair pad did away with the nasty looking seat and the little slip cover for the top of the chair can be easily removed for washing. And… not to mention, it matches everything in my room now 😉
      Thanks for visiting,
      K xx

  9. All too beautiful. Looks like something that should be in a magazine. I know a great one, Simply Shabbilious 🙂 I can picture you in your craft space creating and working on ways to make our hearts skip a beat. You are good at that. Thanks for the tour. I will come again, gladly.

    • Kerryanne says:

      I’m enjoying it Mary, plus appreciating having some quiet time to create in now the resort is less busy. I couldn’t be happier with the colour scheme…. it just feels so peaceful in here.
