Dark Basement Room Transformed To Bright & Fun Craft Room

Dark Basement Room Transformed To Bright & Fun Craft Room

This basement suffered from water damage. The bottom part of the drywall needed to be cut out to remove mold. The plan for this makeover project was to create a craft room / work space. There is very little natural light that comes into this basement, so the room had to feel bright and airy. I wanted the space to be fun, but not feel like a kids playroom. before 1 - craftroom on astralriles.com before 2 - craftroom on astralriles.com before 3 - craft room on astralriles.com before 4 - craft room on astralriles.com before 5 - craft room on astralriles.com After the drywall repair. before 6- craft room on astralriles.com Out of all the colors that I had on my list, lavender is the one that kept jumping to the front of my mind. That little voice in my head was saying "Pick Me"..."Pick Me..."Pick Me PLEASE"!!! So, I had to listen to it! LOL. Yellow is used as an accent color to the lovely lavender walls. I even painted the ceiling a lighter shade of lavender so that the ceilings would feel a bit taller. There is now plenty of storage, in addition to 2 separate workspaces: a desk area and an additional desk for sewing. feature - craft room on astralriles.com FLOR carpet tiles - craft room on astralriles.com craftroom 2 on astralriles.com craft room on astralriles.com craft room desk on astralriles.com craft room 7 on astralriles.com craft room 3 on astralriles.com craft room closet on astralriles.com In order to give this plain Ikea bookcase and extra pop of color, I added fabric to the inside lining of the bookcase. craft room - IKEA HACK bookcase on astralriles.com I also made a DIY functional wall art / pin board using carpet tiles samples. It works just like a cork board, except it's way more fun! craft room wall art on astralriles.com craft room yellow lamp on astralriles.com thread on astralriles.com     So what do you think of this makeover? Was I successful in making this room look fun & bright? If I never mentioned that this room was in the basement...would you still be able to tell?
