I have one and my hubby just purchased one for himself!!!
We ordered from Improvements catalogue. It is featured as craft table. It’s not cheap, but it is soooooo great! lots of space and nice cubbies.

Blues, light greens, yellow are sootheing colors, yellows and orange bases are bright cheery and earthy tones of brown, beige, taupe, etc go with everything. I’ve heard that red is an irritant, so you might want to steer clear of it. If your furniture is white, it’s easier to find other pieces to match it, but if you paint it, it will be harded to match if you want to expand your current ‘stash’ of filing and organizational items.

I have the same problem, my oldest son just moved out and I am a big scrapper, so I have this empty room and lots to add. I love the color silver sage and I already have white cabinets and desk. I will have to agree with a prior comment the crafts themselves will make the room pop!

Your crafts themselves will add the color. Paint everything white…everything…and let the crafts show off their own colors!

It is beautiful and calming, but not much fun. Use something daring for your craft room. Check out Soule Mama’s new color.

Anyway, my kitchen is my favorite room in the house and I think the pallette would be perfect for a craft room: The paint is from Lowe’s..the walls are Apple 4 in a satin finish (a bright but not overbearing or blinding granny smith apple green) and the cabinets are Clean White in a semi gloss finish. I love the Clean White because it is well, clean, and not “institutional” you know? Oh! and my curtains are white with black polka dots…so fun!

I absolutely love the paint colors that Restoration Hardware offers!! Silver Sage is a favorite color of mine…my kitchen is done in this color. Silver Sage looks fabulous with bright white, black & silver. Good luck!

I want a craft room to decorate, but since I don’t I will help you with yours…I would go with classic and clean since craft rooms tend to get a little messy. I adore white shelves next to a bright color…green or blue are nice soothing colors…maybe even a stripe. I am pretty conservative so I would do simple with the things that are more permanent and go crazy sassy with accessories.

The white cabinets would stand out against the painted wall, but also blend together to look less cluttered.

Ikea has cute polka dot wallpaper, maybe use that on the cabinet doors, and use a cute contrasting color for the walls. It’s a craft room after all, use your talents! If only we could all be so lucky to have a largeish craft room like yours!

It’s practival if there is a remote chance that you’ll be repainting them in the near future (2-3 yrs), but I did have another thought… What about painting everything, cabinets and all the same color. This would make the cabinets “fade” into the wall, creating more space to the eye and also give you a giant “canvas” on which to paint more of your creativity. Just a thought…

It’s a craft room so you can go nuts!
