Well, my mom isn't with us any more – she went home to be with the Lord December 23 last year.
One of the first things I did was convert her bedroom over into my craft room. It was to her room first that I would to run each time I finished a project or posted a DIY tutorial.
She was my best cheerleader.
It was totally fitting that I would turn her room into a craft room. It is where I feel close to her and remember how she supported everything I did.
Now I will show you the first thing I changed. I took her closet, where I found a multitude of treasures after she passed, and made it into my mini office fit with desk, chair, utility boxes and the such.
Here is her room WAY before…back when we first bought the house and before we fixed it up for her.
Here is her room after as she requested (Not my style, but it made her happy.)
I don't have a picture of the closet before we fixed it up for her (It was pretty bad).
Here is her closet after the first makeover. (I know, not much to see)
A closet is a closet.
Here is the closet insides after we fixed it up for her and before I made it into my craft closet.
Trust me – it is a major difference.
And here is her closet AFTER the after.
I painted it a light tan and moved in my desk, my second furniture spray paint project to match my kids' old nursery room dresser, my first spray paint furniture project.
Thanks for stepping in for my mom.
I'll have more to show you very soon. The room is almost complete.
