Inspiration Showcase: Craft ‘n’ Clean
Typically, when you think of a laundry room, the first thing that comes to mind may be a dark old furnace room in the basement. But what if your laundry room was something bright and beautiful that you were proud to show off?
Here, our talented visual merchandiser Rochelle Applegate shows how to have a multi-functioning room that can also be pretty as well as welcoming. She turns a laundry room into a crafters dream, a room where “Every thing has a place and every place has its thing.” When Rochelle started looking at inspiration for this showcase she decided to go with a “white and bright” feel, making it the perfect place to spark creativity.
Thinking outside the box with furniture pieces is always great, especially in a room that has ample storage. A kitchen island like this ECI Furniture Island Dining Table in Antique White is full of multi-functional possibilities. This table features a great surface space for folding laundry or working on your next Pinterest project; all while storing cleaning or craft supplies below.
When thinking of getting the most out of a room it makes sense to think about the whole family. Put a small desk in the corner for the kids to join you for endless crafts or have the perfect place they can study while you do laundry. Use something like the Orian Kids Court Buttons Ivory Kids Rug to create a designated fun study space. It’s unique and simple all at once, making it the perfect addition to your craft room.
Here, our amazingly gifted carpenter Bill Hempel did it again. Using leftover metal scraps from other projects, he created the perfect way to store and save wrapping paper all while creating a bright accent to the wall. Before deciding to use leftover metal to showcase wrapping paper the idea was to use an old ladder to display fabric. Nevertheless, turning your extra crafting supplies into décor pieces is simple with organization and storage ideas like this.
