I'm a sewer, which doesn't quite mesh with my small space living. One project and it looks like a fabric-and-pin hurricane swept through my living room. So of course I'm envious of those who have a whole room dedicated to arts and crafts: ceiling-high organized shelves, vintage armoires filled with supplies, and enormous tables to lay out fabric — these are the things that make me swoon. But while browsing for inspiration to turn part of my living into a serious craft space, I found elements from big spaces that I could incorporate in my small space.
My bare wall could benefit from white pegboard to hold notions and things; I can invest in a practical work table that can also serve for dining, and add a modern chair so it doesn't look like a craft room. Add a cool work lamp and a small dresser for storing fabric and supplies and I'm good to go.
