Lina's space is proof that you can use found items to create the perfect crafting desk. This rescued headboard mounted on bookcases along with an added slab door takes on the look of a built-in cabinet with paint, molding, and pegboard.

Small decorative plates are perfect storage for messy paints and glues.

The blue zebra paper on the bookshelves ties together the color and pattern theme of the space.

Welcome to Jen Hadfield’s craft cottage. Built in 1905, this charming cottage has undergone a loving renovation by crafty Jen herself. No details were missed, from wood plank walls and high ceilings to repurposed furniture and a crisp white, yellow, and gray color combination throughout the entire home.

As the eyes are windows to the soul, so can the door and entryway be for your craft room or in this case, home. Set the stage with a cohesive look both inside and outside the room. Photographer: Symoni Johnson,

Being the only girl in a house of boys, Stephenie knew she wanted a pretty yet artistic and bright space that fits her personality. As a content marketing manager for Fiskars, the space had to be functional with areas for all the different types of crafting and art she creates. Also an admitted dabbler, effective storage was very important along with proper surfaces and room for her boys to hang out.
