Hello there! I want to have this bedroom double as a craft room — I would like to have space to knit, cross stitch and draw. I'm thinking about adding a sofa to make it more comfortable when I'm knitting, but I'm having trouble in the overall picture of the room. I need a couple of ideas! I can't paint this room or put holes in the wall. I don't mind to do it everything myself, just don't suggest expensive things. Maybe I've too many things? But I might miss some of my books! I'm attaching a couple of photos. Thank you, Catherine

The first step is to take inventory of what you have, what you need and what you would like to have in this room — and work from there in making decisions about what is the most important to you. This post on taking an inventory and decluttering is a great start.

Anyone else have suggestions as a starting point?
