For Christmas this year, I’ve asked everyone for one thing: items and/or gift
cards to help me re-do my spare bedroom and turn it into a swanky new home
office/craft room. Luckily, Pinterest has been a great source for inspiration
for said room, and now I’m full of ideas of what I can do to it. Of course,
you’ll have to stay tuned to see the finished product (which will hopefully be
done some time in early 2012), but in the meantime, here’s some of my
**1. Hello organization!** I’m a bit type A myself, but I would kill for this level of organization in my future craft room! And because my room is fairly small like this one seen on [ Scrapbook.com](http://www.scrapbook.com/myplace/index.php?mod=galleries&u=2695 93&m=view&id=3212859&type=5&start=1&page=1), this provides some really awesome inspiration.
**2. DIY Fabric Boards.** This seemingly simple DIY project as seen on [Handmade With Joy](http://madebylova.wordpress.com/2008/01/31/what-a-wonderful-new-year/) really adds both form and function to a craft room or office!
**3. Chalkboard Wall.** Chalkboard paint might just be one of my favorite things ever, so I’m dying over this awesome chalkboard wall as seen on [Benjamin Moore](http://www.benjaminmoore.com/bmpsweb/bm/cms/ContentRendere r/ContentRendererController.jpf?np=imagerepository/public_site/article_images/ Interior/OfficeLibrary/IA_int_offc009&lang=en_US). Not only does it add some contrast in the room, but it’s totally functional for jotting down everything you need to!
**4. Build Your Own Craft Table.** Craft tables are pretty pricey, so why not build your own? This one as seen on [The Ivy Cottage](http://theivycottageblog.blogspot.com/2011/10/diy-large- work-table.html) is just 4 bookshelves and 2 hollow core doors! _I have a whole Pinterest Pinboard of great [home office inspiration](http://pinterest.com/prnicolev/home-office-ideas/) if you’d like to take a look :)_
