Creating the most of a tiny space is important if you live in a condominium or apartment. We’ve witnessed how Amber Kemp-Gerstel of Damask Really like turned her small balcony into a versatile, cozy outdoor room. Now she demonstrates us her craft room, which she necessary to turn into a combination craft space and infant’s area (for little Markus).
Wait. A craft area AND a child’s room?
Yep. This room makeover produces a combo room for a baby and for crafting. As you’ll see Amber can make it function beautifully. Along the way she shares mini tutorials on how to hang a gallery wall, a super clever way to include the appeal of wall paper with out actually hanging wall paper and a cute artwork task manufactured from paint brushes.
When we moved into our recent condominium, my one request was to have a craft space. For two many years it was my workplace and permitted me to be productive and grow my site. When I located out there was a baby on the way, I wasn’t fairly prepared to give up my workspace, but I knew it had to adjust. Huge time.
Before the latest overhaul, my craft desk was quite “open.” All of my supplies were visible and could grabbed up easily. It was difficult to hold this area neat given that every small out-of-area item could be spotted. My supplies piled up and there wasn’t a ton of storage for new materials that I brought in. It was mainly practical but not an best work room when there is a baby around.
The prior craft area also served as the guest room in our two-bedroom condo. We had a massive sofa bed on the wall opposite my function desk which was great for lounging but also practical for when visitors arrived. With a small one particular on the way, this component of the space was going to have to change… I’m pretty positive that sofa beds are not proper for infants!
The alternatives for redecorating this space swirled in my head for months, and I lastly settled on a design that would be practical and interesting. That’s exactly where my “Crib Meets Craft” undertaking started. I wished a dual-purpose room where I could perform and the place infant could be comfortable, a space exactly where all of my supplies would have a residence and could be neatly place away, out of baby’s reach. Thankfully, The House Depot provides a enormous assortment of crafting furnishings that fit the bill completely.
Stick to me along on this small tour of my Crib-Meets-Craft Area Makeover.
It’s difficult to feel that this is the exact same area, but it is. It’s amazing what a fresh coat of Behr Marquee paint will do, along with a number of essential pieces of Martha Stewart Living Crafting furnishings.
I chose a shade palette that was child-pleasant, daring and a could function in an adult workspace. For the walls, we went with Behr Marquee paint in Manhattan Mist. The paint goes on in just one coat — even on the wall that was previously painted. Because I was pregnant, I didn’t do the painting myself but I was really pleased about the minimal VOC’s, which meant minimal paint fumes in our property.

Along my “work wall” I positioned 5 pieces of Martha Stewart Living crafting furnishings, which supplies a lot of room for my crafting supplies…with space to increase.
Above my craft table, I desired to hang artwork-themed photographs that would fit the crafty theme of the room and coordinate with the colors.
Generating this small gallery wall was easy…
one. Trace every frame to be included in your gallery wall then minimize out the frame shapes with scissors.
two. Organize the builder’s paper onto the wall to finalize the layout of your gallery.
3. Hang the center piece of the gallery wall then flank with strips of painter’s tape. This will guarantee that all the further frames will be flawlessly spaced.
4. Hang the remaining gallery artwork.
On the wall opposite my crafting location is exactly where our sweet small infant now lives. His area is filled with all the necessities along with a handful of innovative extras that I developed. By far my favourite attribute of this wall are people wallpaper panels.
Considering that we are renting our condominium, it didn’t make sense to wall paper the complete wall, only to have to remove it later on. These panels are a temporary resolution for incorporating wall paper to your walls–perfect for renters and home owners!
1. Spot the MDF board onto a flat surface (either a operate table or the floor).
two. Doing work in small sections, brush wall paper paste immediately onto the MDF and onto the back of the wallpaper.
3. Smooth the wallpaper into place and proceed adhering wall paper onto the MDF. As soon as the complete board is covered, wrap the edge as you would a present.
To include a pop of shade to each and every of the wallpaper panels, I produced this framed artwork which completely coordinates with the crafty theme of the space. They are extremely easy to develop!
1. Tape off the brush portion of the paint brushes.
two. Spray paint the take care of portion of the paint brushes.
3. Permit them to dry, then organize the paint brushes on a sheet of heavyweight white paper.
4. Use a hot glue gun to safe your paint brush design and style.
5. Frame the paint brushes and hang them on the wall.
