Project Inspiration and The Ugly Start of Feathering My Nest

So most have figured out my latest project but a few are still trying to figure it out so here are a few more inspiration hints-





Yup its a creative space for moi!!
 Actually it's more accurately a creative closet but hey you work with what you have!
We use all 4 of our guestrooms for ministry and entertaining so I don't feel like I can take over one whole room. But one room has a huge quadruple door area and am hoping I can make it work!

Warning next pictures are the ugly part- what isbehind door #1?
 Actually this is more like what's behind doors 2 & 3. Right in middle of closet is a dresser -

This is all the stuff behind all 4 of those doors taken out.   How in the world did all that stuff get packed in there I will never know!
I had this great idea that I wanted to put my sewing table in the middle of the closet so the dresser needed to come out. Easy Peasy I thought.  My hubby ended up having to literally tear the dresser completely apart to get it out of there!
Well here it is in all of its mustard yellow glory with everything out-
Who ever picked that yellow color out must have been color blind!

Well there's the ugly of my project and I actually have some more ugly to show but let you have a reprieve and show you more inspiration pictures that I have Pinned  for this project. 



Oh, and just to warn you. This project is going as slow as molasses. And we have already had several rabbit trails that we have gone off on on other projects, but that is for another day!  I hope one day (hopefully by the time Karen's Party this summer) to be at least somewhat ready to show it off,  but then again who knows with the way our life goes!!  I am wanting to enjoy the process and not get caught up in a deadline.......

Oh 1 more thing- I still am not sure about what is happening with Google Friends but have the new linky on sidebar and would love to have you sign up there so we don't loose each other-

Looks like you have a lot of work cut out for you--but I can't wait to see what you come up with! You sure have found some beautiful inspiration!

Adrienne said...

I can't wait to see your new space. We turned the closet in a spare room into my sewing area. I haven't showed photos on my blog but it's really a neat place to work. Love your inspiration photos!

Pondside said...

What a great idea - I'll follow your progress with interest!

Debbie@Debbie-Dabble and A Debbie-Dabble Christmas said...

Can't wait to see what your project will look like when finished and I bet you can't wait for that too!! LOL!
Absolutely fell in love with the first picture!!
Thanks for sharing all these inspirational pics!! Love all of them!

Wow - you really have your hands full Mary. It is a wonder how you got it all in that closet. That would be a very overwhelming project for me right now since I'm running low on ehergy these days. I am really excited about seeing it all done. Take you time and do it exactly like you want it to be. I love those cards covered with vintage wall paper with the lace wrapped around them. So pretty. Wouldn't it be fun to work in such a pretty surrounding as those pictures. Hope you are well.

Hi Mary,
I'd love to help you clean out that closet. That is, if I can keep all that I like! LOL!

I see lots of pretties and I know your space will look wonderful.


Ann@A Sentimental Life said...

looks alot like my spare bedroom closet! I wish I had room in there for my sewing machine so I could just roll it out and go.

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

I love your inspiration pictures, Mary! I'm sure it will look really lovely once you are done. I had a space in my garage for a couple of years and then when we moved I got an actual room. It is supposed to be a storage room, but I took it over! : ) I'm looking forward to Karen's linky party, too. It usually motivates me to get organized.

Laura Ingalls Gunn said...

Oh my what gorgeous inspiration!

My friend I would like to ask that you cover my family in prayer on Thursday, March 1, at around 1:30pm. Our family continues to be tested and we are standing strong in our faith.

Barbara Jean said...

Oh I know it will just be beautiful!!

Thanks for the little bits of inspiration at the end. =)

Hi! Isn't it amazing how much stuff can really be in one closet!! You will love it when you get it done....eventually!!

Karie's Chic Creations said...

I know what it is like! I had a project last summer just like you have. Good luck. Karie

Oliva said...

Hi Mary! I can't wait to see your finish creative room! Great ideas! I can already picture it!
Thank you for stopping by. I didn't know about the mismatched sock trend! LOL!

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Yes, you need a space for yourself and projects. That closet reminds of people packed in a phone booth or a car..that was a lot of stuff! Oh, I would love to look at it all. What a fun project!


On Crooked Creek said...

I wouldn't have guessed correctly in a million years...but I'm thrilled for you to have your own creative space! The inspiration photos are gorgeous...but you have tremendous creativity. I know your design will WoW us through the transformation! I'll be back for the reveal!

Michele @ The Nest at Finch Rest said...

The most difficult part is the STARTING of any project- look what you have accomplished! How exciting!

This is (eventually) going to be an absoutely fabulous reveal! Whoo hoo!

Keep up the good work, can't wait - how awesome to have your very own craft room space. It's going to be GREAT!

Debbie said...

This looks like what I was doing two weeks ago. I bagged up so many things and had my hubby take it all to St. Vinnie's. I'm not making a craft room, but at least I got the closet cleaned out!


Your closet is going to be more than awesome! Can't wait to see it.


Diann said...

Okay Mary! How did you sneak into my craft area closet and take those pictures? I am telling you, your closet looks like mine does right now! So, when you are done beautifing your closet, you can just head straight over here and do mine! LOL I hope you are having a wonderful day!

xinex said...

This is very inspiring, Mary. I am always amazed on how much we can store in a closet. It does not look like a lot until you take them out. I can't wait to see your finished project. Good luck!..Christine

Chari at Happy To Design said...

Hi Girlfriend...

How clever of you! To design and make a crafting place out of the closet area! Wow...such a huge closet too! That's pretty cool...considering alot of older homes have small or no closets at all! I'm just ecstatic for you...you deserve a place to call your own...a place to create!!! Keep us posted on the progress! I love this idea!!!

Love ya,
