We have a room in our house which has served different purposes over the years. When our girls were babies, I used it as my sewing and craft room. As they became toddlers, we changed it into their playroom. Later, we moved in a computer and work table as their crafts and electronics began to replace the toys. Our latest renovation was to turn it into their very own study/craft room.
Sweet husband added all new window, floor and ceiling moldings. The room previously had two solid double doors. His biggest project was installing new french doors and transom windows to open up the space. A feature well worth the time and expense.

The walls are painted a beautiful eggplant color and I chose a sage green silk dupioni to sew up the drapery panels. All of the furniture is from IKEA. The magnetic bulletin boards, under their matching desks, are a favorite feature. The tall cabinet stores all of their craft supplies including art pencils/pens, scrapbook paper, rubber stamps and tools. The cabinets above their desks store mainly school supplies, books and binders. Another great feature of the room is the lighting - halogen lights installed above the cabinets to bounce light off of the ceiling, and task lighting under the cabinets. The girls, and their friends, all love the space. It's the perfect place to gather to complete all those school projects!
