office-craft room revamp project {The Creativity Exchange}


Office-Craft Room Project   (The Creativity Exchange)


Office-Craft Room Revamp {The Creativity Exchange}


Well friends, I’m in the homestretch with my office/craft room revamp!!  It has truly been so fun planning and watching my dream space come together.  I uploaded another video update of the space so far before I start adding the fabric and accessories.   I also need your help again.  In the video, I show you two areas that I need to come up with a solution.  You guys have been such a big help throughout this project and I can’t thank you enough for your suggestions and feedback!  Here’s the video update:


Speaking of suggestions, I took several of your suggestions and painted the wall with the “Alice in Wonderland” door all the same wall color and painted the door the same color as well.  I think it is exactly what I needed to do and now the door fades into the wall:

I have two long panel light sconces that will go on the wall on each side of the door, so that will also help to make that door disappear.

A few weeks ago, I shared a post and a tutorial for how I revamped my old kitchen table with oil based paint to use in this space and I was excited to finally move it into the space.  We barely got it through the doorway and the color and finish just popped and the French gray color brought more warmth to the space.  The table top finish has cured and is ready for anything!

I am now ready for decorating the space!  I can’t wait for you all to see what I have planned.  I have a lot of DIY projects that I’m doing, so those will be showing up here over the next week.

I am in the homestretch and probably a week or so away from being finished and take the final reveal pictures if all goes as planned.  Thanks for all of your help and suggestions and I can’t wait to hear your thoughts about what I can do with the desk that I show in the video.  I know there is a solution out there!

Have a great day friends!!

    OMG i love this post! you give me so much inspiration. Currently, im still working on the kitchen and still doing posts about that , hehe.

    • Cyndy says:

      Thanks Ellen! I’m so glad that you are inspired! My kitchen is on my list to revamp this next year. Good luck on your project and thanks so much for your sweet note Ellen!

    I love this room, the colors, and it’s future functionality. It is bright, yet nuetral with elbow room for creativity to flow unhampered!!!

    • Cyndy says:

      Thanks Linda! It is such a bright and airy space in person! I can’t wait to start painting in it!! Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope all is well friend!!

    I have a concern/suggestion… you said you are wanting to use the space under the counter by the desk for large art pads and such… with the desk that close and especially if you put dividers in there — is there really going to be enough room to get them in there…. I’m thinking not…. How about moving the desk closer to the doorway so you will have more access to that corner space and then I would only do a narrow extension of the counter top that is only as wide as the top of the desk (maybe I mean ‘deep’) – so that it doesn’t restrict visual or actual access to the under counter area… then I would add shelve to join the top cabinets instead of having them side by side as they are now.. I hope you can understand this suggestion but concerned about the accessibility to that corner undercounter space….

    • Cyndy says:

      That’s a great suggestion Roberta and understand what you’re saying. I have room to move the desk a few more inches to the doorway, so I think I’m going to do that and see how it looks. Actually, I could create even more storage by doing that because that extra space is wasted. Thanks so much for the suggestion! I’m going to look at that!! Thanks so much!

      • Amber says:

        I agree, I had the same thought. You could maybe fit a rolling cart between the desk and the built in that could be moved when you need to access the area underneath and your printer could sit on top?

    • Susan says:

      I agree with Roberta. I was concerned with there not being enough space to access the corner space. I think if you do move the desk over you will gain some access to the corner. Also connecting the uppers with shelves you will gain some there. I like the paper storage idea.

    You are really rocking that room, girl. I can’t believe how much you’ve gotten done (I feel like such a lazy slug . . .).

    Ceiling color — I have never been a fan of colored ceilings. It all goes back to the time my mom painted our living room ceiling Kelly green. As she said, “it matches the rug!” Coupled with the brown and white foil wallpaper in the adjoining dining room, it made QUITE the design statement.

    I digress — I say, finish the room and live with it for a while. After you’ve seen how the color works when the days get shorter (and darker), you may decide it needs to be white.

    Or not.

    Can’t wait to see the final reveal!

    I am a new follower an I LOVE your blog!!! You have the most wonderful ideas. I have spent hours looking at your wonderful projects. I love what you’re doing with this room. You are one lucky girl!!! I agree about moving the desk down the wall. Can’t wait to see the finished room. To make the door disappear even more, I would spray paint the door knob or prime and paint in same wall color and coat with a few layers of poly. (Just an idea) =) Thanks again for the endless inspiration!!

  6. Shirley says:

    Love it all! I am also in the “move the desk” group. What about wrapping the counter around toward the desk (moved) and using that extension as a parking pad for your printer, with paper storage horizontal slots in the corner of the counter?

  7. Robbie says:

    Great video, great redo!!
    When I was watching, I knew what I was going to suggest to you. Then I read comments, and Roberta stated exactly what I was thinking!
    So excited for you – now I’m dreaming about finding a ‘hidden room’ in my house!!

  8. Linda says:

    I agree with Roberta on moving the desk over. Still not crazy about the desk, but “you do what ya gotta do.” For the two niches behind the table – what do you think of painting the backs of them the same color as the table? I think that plus your wall scones would make that area pop. Since the table paint is an oil based paint, you may want to fit in two thin sections of wall board or bead board painted in that color, rather than on the actual wall. Then add some sofa pillows that pick up the color as well.

  9. Oh my! This room looks already amazing!
    I can`t wait to see the whole thing done!
    The walls, this cool table and the floor!
    So gorgeous and inspiring!
    Thank you so much for sharing;)
