Squared Away

Squared Away
Rebecca had a big, empty room that was great for spontaneous square-dancing, but not much else.  Not being much of a square-dancer, she decided to turn it into a craft room instead.  Oh no, problem alert! All she had was a budget of $0!  Did she let that stop her?  Psh.  Don’t be silly. 
First she scraped up some fundage by selling a few unwanted items on craigslist.  Then she used the cash to purchase the larger items of furniture, and found a few freebies from shopping the house (and maybe the alley) along the way.  Now it’s a colorful craftopia!  Check it out on her blog Older and Wisor.

    Wow, I love it! It looks like a room that would’ve cost hundreds to re-do. I love the chalkboard. I’d want to play teacher all day instead of craft. 🙂

    Color me jealous! I would give my right arm for a craft room. (Don’t worry, I’m a lefty and the right one is just for show)

    I love the stool because it reminds me of the ones I used to sit at in high school chemistry, but in a way better setting, it looks AMAZING!
