Elba’s Craft Room Tour

Turning a walk in closet into a special workspace or craft room.

When we moved to this new home I was a bit sad because it had just two bedrooms. I didn’t want to share my baby’s nursery with my office anymore, and I didn’t want to have my craft material everywhere around the house.

After I finished unpacking the boxes for the bedrooms and living room I discovered that the entrance walk-in closet was still empty. I got excited because I knew I could use that space just for my craft material.

My craft room / walk-in closet turned out to work surprisingly well. All my material is organized inside, and I even have space for a tiny work area. I added a chair and I’m able to doodle, color and sew in there.

I painted it recently because the walls were a little dirty and they looked boring. I added some horizontal lavender stripes. It looks cleaner, and even bigger thanks to the stripe effect. You can check out how I transformed the walls in this post: How to bring your boring closet to life.

What I enjoy most about my space is being able to display some of the most special things aside the craft material that I use for my posts and YouTube videos. I have my favorite coloring books, personal doodles, illustrations, fabric samples and handmade items that remind me of Mexico and my family.

Since the video is just in Spanish, I didn’t want you to miss a sneak peek of my craft room so I took some pictures of my tiny but special space and some of the things I cherish most, especially the first stamp I created with Live Colorful’s logo back in North Carolina when I was selling handmade earrings. So many noteworthy things!

    This is such a good idea! Now I wish I had a walk-in closet to turn into a mini office!
