Craft Room Evolution

Hello! I thought it would be fun to walk down memory lane and share how my craft space has evolved over the past decade.

My crafty storage space actually began in a vintage trunk. I outgrew that very quickly. So then, I moved down to the basement, in around 2006. There was a table and desk down there, and I made my crafty home down there for about a year or two. Craft Room Evolution | Created by Jen Blog

I used the same desk that was in the basement (and was my grandparents’). I remember I had a lot of fun shopping for new storage units. I have never stopped loving that.Β  πŸ™‚Craft Room Evolution | Created by Jen BlogMy mom painted the desk white, and I still love it to this day.

My hardwood floor wasn’t actually too bad looking.
