Craft room makeover

We have a spare bedroom that I use as my craft room. The walls were a spring green, and I didn't care much for the color. So thanks to some inspiration from my friend Amy, I chose the color "Butter up" and painted the walls. Here is one wall before painting.

And after. I scored the curtains at a St. Vincent dePaul for $3.99!

I replaced a few things on the walls. I'd had this garden-y picture that would no longer match. Before:


A happy accident: these pictures were made for me by my late Grandma,
and my late Grandpa made the frames. The frame on the left says "Life is fragile. Handle with prayer."

When I was about 12, Grandma made me this Garfield picture. 
I'm pretty sure she drew and stitched the image freehand. It matches the room perfectly too.

Oops, you're reminding me that I took pictures of the living room and front hallway in their new colors...but don't think I took any pictures of my room done in "butter up." :-) Also, I think I still have that same garden print - filling a wall in the spare bedroom (or what Aerin likes to think of as her room).

That is pretty. A redo on a room always brightens things up!

Renos, even simply paint, can make the world of difference.

Of course, we boys think no room is complete without a multitude of cat condos, tunnels, toys, etc. :-P

What a lovely room to craft in. It definitely is a special room and you have wonderful reminders of Grandpa and Grandma. Loved the kitty toys, too. Grandma was so talented.
