Someday Craft Shop!

Ok Ladies, its a long ways from being finished but here is some pics of the potting shed/craft shop. Its pretty bare. We had a work bench along one side that we took out a few days ago. It made it look bigger. When we talked about turning the shed in to a craft area, I thought it might be to small. Now looking at it I worry if I can fill it? I'd like to do a lot of repurposing of items and some sewing things. I'd like to get into maybe some wholesale stuff but I know alot of wholesaler require a min. order and I don't want to tie up alot of overhead. But I would like to be able to buy some things wholesale, like materials-garlands and supplies and such. I'd love to be able to paint. Ive seen old things with snowmen painted on them. I've always wanted to paint. One wall is peg board, but I'm not sure if I want to keep it. Id like to find alot more old doors and screens and line the walls with them. i have purchased alot of barn wood I intend on using on the walls. well it will sit for the winter. I have been moving some for my tag sale finds in there for the winter. Well I have laundry to fold. Yes, I know the 13 yr old should be doing that task. Her and her dad are in there playing on her new Wii. Have a great week. I head back to school tomorrow. Ive' enjoyed getting up each morning with my cappachino to visit with you all. Ill catch up with you another day!

What a great space! Some very smart lady just did the same thing around the corner from where I work -- and she has a loyal following already! (me included) I love to go in there and imagine it must be so great to spend your day around prims! Good luck with it!

My mom once opened a shop in one front room of her home...which ended up later in her whole house..LOL but that one room was a very successful start for her business.( no overhead expense and was also a tax deduction) She did very well as there were three major camp grounds that came to see her on summer weekends...all looking for gifts for people taking care of their homes while they you never know who your customer base will be! Looks like a neat little place for a scraft room!

That is going to be so much fun for you!

Hi Dawn!
That is a wonderful space you got there. I can just picture it with the barn siding up, and old doors surrounding. I don't think you'll have any problem filling it up with goodies.
I can't wait to see it finished.
I bet it will be awesome!
