When your kids leave the nest, it leaves a little emptiness, and that includes their old bedrooms. And so many times we see loving parents pining over those empty rooms, unwilling to take down those boy band posters and store those stuffed animals. But you shouldn’t feel guilty about reclaiming that extra real estate.
With your newfound space, now is the time to think about you! Give yourself the room you’ve always dreamed of where you can pursue your creative hobbies. If you need space to sprawl out with your crafts or scrapbook, choose a table for your craft room instead of a desk (try one with a leaf for those oversized projects). Then, brighten up the space with a floor lamp
that features pivoting task lighting to shed a little light on whatever project you’re working on.
Storage and organization are must-haves for any functional hobby room. Media towers
have deeper shelves than a traditional bookcase, making them perfect for housing baskets for your fabrics and other craft supplies. And since this room is all about creativity, don’t forget to mix in some fun accessories that reflect your individual style.
