I think the last time I shared an update on my Craft & Bible Study Room was last year around this time. There were so many changes done to it over the course of last year, I honestly don’t know why I didn’t share any updates on it. No worries my loves, that’s why I am here today!
The above image is taken from the doorway of the room. This view makes the room look small, but it’s actually a decent sized room. I have a twin daybed on the one wall and tons of shelving on the others.
The brown shelves you see in the above image are parts of our old entertainment center. I moved them to the craft & bible study room in August of last year. They are going to their new home soon, as my Daughter and her boyfriend are fixing up their place.
Craft & Bible Study Room
There’s the twin daybed. I have been in love with this yellow and grey bedspread since I got it 3 or 4 years ago. I have thought about painting the room a light grey and add some pops of yellow. But then I’d have to figure out how to tie in all the pink.
Here’s another love pillow and my Love you More Pillow. Love these! On the wall I have a peg board where I’ve got a few photos of everyone. There are also some inspirational wall art too. The picture of the lady’s head is one of the pieces my daughter Dani painted for me. I have a few different ones that are smaller. I love her art work.

The above image is of the craft room closet, which is loaded from top to bottom with crafting supplies. You’ll see in the next picture. There are those brown shelves again.
I love all the little treasures I have on the shelves. The bird in the gold frame is actually a page from a calendar I found a couple years ago. I painted the cross below it last year sometime. If you look on the 3rd. shelf closest to the closet you can see the prayer box I made. I am still the only one using it. One day … one day …
There you go, all the supplies! Oh if you look to the left of my heat press you see that little black and pink shelf? I just made that isn’t it pretty? I am thinking of moving it out of the closet to over where my desk is.
Craft & Bible Study Room – moving along
The little pink box is my trash can, it’s actually one of those cubicle cubes. I have a wooden box inside it for all the messy spills, trash etc. The green and white stool next to it, I found at a thrift store for $5. I added some caster wheels to the bottom, it’s perfect for the granddaughters or when I am working with my Cricut.
The little birdhouses were made by Dani, Noah, Kayden, and Izzy last year on one of our family craft days. Also on the very top of the shelf with the silver Faith sign, there is an ivory oval box that was my card box for my wedding almost 15 years ago.
The stuffed animals the hubby has gotten me over the years. (it’s only some of them and ones that were pink) :) You can barely see my newest addition to the room, my pretty rose gold Bible journaling carts.
Craft & Bible Study Room – we are almost there!
Ahh there my beauties are! I love these new carts, I got them at Michael’s during their storage event I believe last month. They were super easy to put together and pretty sturdy.
When the hubby is home on the weekends I sometimes roll one to the living room to journal. I also got a wooden top for one of them, which makes for a nice hard surface when I am journaling, and later I put my laptop on it. I normally use my Surface Pro for blogging etc. it’s easier to move around.
Next to the carts is my paper holder, this is a heavy wooden cabinet. I got it from the thrift store for $5, for real it was only $5 bucks. There was absolutely nothing wrong with it. I think no one grabbed it because they didn’t know how to use it. The drawers are about 13 x 13 with the sides open and a 4″ ledge in the back. (see image below) This is the perfect size for the 12 x 12 decorative papers. I also keep my rolls of vinyl in the top drawer.
Craft & Bible Study Room – and almost done!
Two images above you can see my white cube shelves. They used to be side-by-side but, when we got our new furniture for the living room I moved the recliner in here. As to keep everything from looking cluttered I stacked them on top of each other. I actually like the way they look stacked and will probably leave them like that. Until I get bored again! :)
The chair is going to be with Dani and her boyfriend sometime this week so, I moved it out to make it easier to move for them. I used to have the chair in front of the brown shelves. (see image below) I actually think I might miss that chair.
Craft & Study Room – last area
Anyways back to the white shelves/cubbies. (shown in
The bottom cubbies on the top shelves have more Bibles and Bible studies. The bibles on the left side belong to Dani, she left them behind years ago. I’ve left them out with high HOPES, she’ll pick them up and pick up where she left off. Hope is my word of the year.
The two lower shelves have some of my Etsy item making supplies. I keep them in these pretty totes, so that I can be mobile. Like for those times when you want to just be in the same room as everyone else, just doing your own thing. :)
The very top shelve has a Bible verse in a frame that I made, to the right of it I have a pink with white polka dot box. On top of the box is a stack of Faith books I found recently at a thrift store. There is also a little teddy and an angel.
Craft & Bible Study Room – final area cont.
In the above
I made all of the faith-related wall art with my Cricut. The large one with Proverbs 3:6 on it is made of card-stock, and placed inside a frame I had. They aren’t glued down in case I decide to change it out. This was one of the first things I created after starting my faith journey Jan 2018.
The other faith inspired pieces where made about 3 months ago. I got the frames from a thrift store for $2, they are heavy wood. The black shelving were another thrift store find. I had them for about 2 years before they finally found their spot on my wall.
Decorative boxes are a big part of a lot of my decorating ideas, the ones with the pink dresses on them are about 10 years old. They actually have a flip top I used to keep little trinkets in them, but they are only hung by a push pen and kept falling. I like to use push pens when I can they only create a little tiny hole, and gives me the ability to move things around without having to patch the walls.
Craft & Bible Study Room – the pink desk . . . and why
My desk was originally a maple brown color, and it’s not really a desk either. It’s actually an old sewing cabinet that held an older Singer sewing machine. My hubby got it for me 13 years ago. I still have the sewing machine in the attic.
So why is it pink? Well years ago, I wanted a pink room honestly, sometimes I still do. But with this room being one of the first things visitors see when they walk in I could never get the hubs to agree. I guess I am somewhat happy he couldn’t come to terms with a pink room.
Anyways if I couldn’t have a pink room I’d have a room filled with pink things. So … I started putting pops of pink all over the room. The desk was painted pink for the pop of pink, as well as the top had something that looked like a water stain.
Craft & Bible Study Room – Final Thoughts
Well there you have it a view of my Craft & Bible Study Room as it is today. I am sure I’ll move things around again and again this year. The brown shelves will be going away soon, so I’ll have that extra space to play with. Stick around to see what happens next. I’d like to invite you to follow me in the social media outlets shown on the upper-right side of my blog. Many times I will share on Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter without posting on here so be sure to connect with me on those.
