Craft Room Challenge Week 3
*Some of the links below are affiliate links, please see full disclosure here*
Well, we have made it to Week #3 and things have been super hectic at our house…. it all started with sick kiddos… yep! We are still battling to get back to 100% and tomorrow schools have been closed due to inclement weather.
I do have a little of good news and more bad news….
Good news first though.
I purged and it feels so good!
You can also check out the video recap of Week 2 & 3 along with a shopping haul for supplies below!
You don’t realize how much junk you have until you go through it. I had so many things I hadn’t used in years!
- Easter lights!
- Empty bottles.
- Yogurt containers for a long forgotten project.
- Yarn ( I don’t even crochet or knit!).
- Leftover “thank you” cards from our wedding. ?
- And some plain ole trash!
Out they went to either to a donation box or the trash.
I am super happy about this. I do know there are a couple of other boxes down in the basement to go through, but honestly, I won’t get to those anytime soon so the boxes in the main level will have to do. Plus, really, there are only 2. I can handle those once my room is complete.
Other great news is that I finally got my paint order in! Check out this lovely shade of blue.
I am using this milk paint to change the look of these bookcases that will go in the craft room for storage.
Bad news is I have never worked with true milk paint before and I have hit some snags. But I will work through it and update these babies like I had hoped. It’s definitely a learning process so I will take it as that. However, everything keeps to be dragging so I have gotten a little frustrated these past couple of days.
But on a better note, I think I have finally found my decor style!
I love the farmhouse style that Fixer Upper has brought to us, but I also love coastal decor with a touch of sophistication kinda like the Hamptons… so I’m naming my style Hamptons Farmhouse… not sure if that’s a thing, but I’m keeping it. LOL!
Let’s just hope I can actually get what’s in my head to translate into my work. No pressure, right?
I hope to share their transformation next week so stay tuned! I am determined to get them done.
And finally, you remember the white walls I shared in last week’s post?
I am giving them an upgrade! To the tune of this…
So this week I am focusing on the following:
- Finishing my projects
- Setting furniture back in place
- Throwing away more items I don’t need.
- Start grouping things to make them easier for storing.
I would love to hear what your thoughts are so far!

I like where you’re headed with your style concept. I love the farmhouse style too, but I’ve realized that I’m a tropical/beachy style. Can’t wait to see the reveal this week.
