MRS. P's CRAFT ROOM - store display

she has jars and bottles, books and paints.
She has lavender and burlap, fabric and crates.
She has boxes and bins packed
full of nice things.

I'm here to confess creating these room displays for my friend's store isn't as easy as we make it look. Trying to define a specific room inside a large open space has it's challenges,
but we persisted and were able to build a work space for
Mrs. P to create in.

When Carrie and I started trying to create Mrs. P's craft room
 inside the store we found picking the right furniture difficult
 as well as the placement. Craft rooms are a relatively new
 idea and something we all wish we had but finding the space
 and setting it up can be daunting. Every new home comes
 with an on suite, not many come with a dedicated craft room.

Figuring out what you want to do in the space is critical to a
 set up that will work. Mrs. P enjoys taking time to sit and
 read Annie Sloan books like this one called Creating the
 French Look, so a comfortable chair is a great idea
 to include in the design.

love this owl!!!
Whether you are painting some mason jar vases, building a
 vintage photograph lamp shade or making lavender satchels,
 you need to figure out how big your work surface should be.
 We have used a small dining table and easily filled it with all
 sorts of things you would want to spread out while you are creating.

I brought in this French Provincial Server that I just finished
 to show how different pieces can be used in different spaces.
Also find fun and creative ways to store your supplies for easy
access and to keep your supplies out in the open so you can
see what you have to work with. Knowing what I have to work
 with helps me be even more creative.

 Have you heard the news? Mrs. P has ...
The Passionate Home is going to have stencils in stock very soon!
It's the kind of stencil she will be using to create all those
 grain sack images on pillows, upholstery, tea towels, 
furniture and anything else she can think of.

Take a cue from Mrs. P and be unconventional
and surround yourself with the things you love.
