Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask Love

You’ve already seen the closet and now it’s time to see the rest. If you haven’t already visited the Home Depot blog – you should take a trip over there to see the before and after photos of the Crib Meets Craft space. Once you’ve done that, come on back for a more detailed look at all the elements that make this room so special and so functional.

Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask LoveIf you’ve read THIS post, you know that this room used to be a guestroom/craftroom that housed our big green sofa bed. That has been replaced with a sleek, acrylic and wood crib that I fell in love with as soon as I saw it. Originally, I wanted a crib that was all acrylic, but Andrew kept telling me it looked like a fish tank. On the wall just across from the crib is my workspace.

I fell in love with it the minute I saw it on the NurseryWorks site.  With the addition of the aqua floor pouf from Land of Nod, this little corner of the nursery is ready for late night nursing and lots of story time sessions.

Just above the rocker, I designed this trio of simple, graphic prints that coordinate with the colors of the room. I love how they look.

Now if we head over to my workspace, you’ll see even more fun art prints!

My Martha Stewart Craft Desk takes the place of my old Ikea furniture and I am loving it…and can we talk about this acrylic chair. It coordinates perfectly with the acrylic on the crib.

Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask LoveI wanted to place some colorful artwork in the room, and found a huge print from Ikea for a great price. As for each of those four pieces around the large print, I designed them myself! Each one features a fun, graphic, crafty image with a color name beneath. They work perfectly for the crafty theme of the room and their kid-friendly as well!

I wanted to keep the desktop clean and uncluttered, but it still needed to be functional. The Cubby Cups from Land of Nod are a great way to store lots of pencils, rulers and other tools without taking up a ton of desk space.

These paper suitcases are another functional addition to my desktop. Inside, I store all of the acrylic blocks that I use for stamping…and I have quite a few of them! They are a great pop of color but also serve a great purpose. Double duty. Love that.

The Martha Stewart craft desk houses two deep drawers that hold a ton of supplies. For the sake of keeping things organized, I picked up a selection of Linus Shallow Drawer Organizers and arranged them within the drawer to fit my needs. Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask Love

Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask LoveI love that I can keep my scissors tucked away and organized by size! I also added some wrapping paper to the bottom of each drawer for an added pop of color. It’s an easy and cheap way to add color to your space.

If you’ve never seen one of these in person, let me tell you this: these things are deceptively massive! They don’t really take up a huge footprint but man oh man, do they store a ton! The drawers pull out completely allowing you to use every single centimeter of space inside.

Inside the hutch, I store all of my stamps, ink and dies.  I keep them all organized inside of THESE awesomely sturdy Linus Cabinet Organizers.

The sturdy pull handle on the cabinet organizers make it very easy to grab my stamps and put em to work.

Crib Meets Craft: Nursery & Craft Room Reveal | Damask LoveNow, that wraps up my coverage of the Crib Meets Craft room – but be sure to visit the Home Depot Apron Blog for a ton more photos of this space, including tutorials on the DIY projects I completed in the room!

  1. I am speechless! This is the most beautiful crib/craft space I’ve seen! Your style is amazing! Congrats on the little one. We just had our little Max 7 months ago. They sure are fun!

  2. Very nice set up baby and craft room all in one! 🙂 Do you store you stamps alphabetical order and what kind of plastic are they stored in?

  3. I love the room. Once baby can climb out of the crib you will have to lock everything down. It is funny what mischief they get into when taking a “nap”.

  4. Wow! Everything is in it’s place and everything has a place! So clean with the perfect color combinations. Amber, I think you have created the perfect little corner in your world!

  5. What a great space Amber! So bright and beautifully decorated but how in God’s name do you craft while the baby is sleeping in the same room?

    1. Like Celeste i think it is great but wonder how it works when the baby is sleeping. I do a lot of craft in the evening do you too? When you want to work on a project, does the baby sleep elsewhere or do you craft elsewhere?

  6. I love your blog! It’s one of my favorites. I absolutely love this room. So bright and beautiful, great for crafting and baby.

  7. O.M.G. This is the most beautiful crafty baby room I’ve ever seen. Might be the only one, but if there is ever another, it won’t be this gorgeous. It can’t! You are amazing. Will you come to Oklahoma and help me design my new craft room? I’m moving in a couple of weeks, and I want it to look just like yours. Minus the baby stuff. I love babies, but I”m done with all that (my oldest is 18, and my youngest is 10). Okay. This might be the longest blog comment I’ve ever left. You’re worth it because you’re so amazing, though. That is all!

  8. Olá, amo demais seu blog. É incrivelmente lindo tudo que você faz!Ficou muito lindo seu espaço de trabalho. Por favor poderia me dizer onde encontrou essas imagens dos quadrinhos? Achei super fofos.
    Obrigada por compartilhar suas ideias.

  9. Awesome space ! It would be hard to leave that beautiful creative space! Bet your baby has grown up a lot since you posted this!

  10. I just discovered you while googling craft room ideas. This room is absolutely beautiful!!! I’m fortunate enough to have a small room just for crafting, and it will soon get a makeover. I’ll definitely be using tips from this post! And I will be checking out this blog regularly from now on – great job!

  11. Are you out of your mind!!!!! The hazards in that room once baby is mobile are too many to count. Scissor storage in the same room???!!! All the little accessories that are choking hazards???!! Seriously? Worst idea ever!
