House Tour Room-by-Room Link-up Party: Home Offices, Craft Rooms, Mom Caves, etc.

Wow! You guys brought your A-games with your dining room posts last week! I'll do a quick round-up of some of my favorites tomorrow.  We had lots of new posters last week which is so much fun! The dining room party is open for a few more hours if you still want to post! And, here's the full room-by-room schedule in case you are a planner!

This week's party is for home offices, craft & sewing rooms, and Mom caves. Ironically, we don't have a home office, sewing room or Mom cave. Jim would argue that the whole house is my "cave" so maybe that's part of the issue. We do plan to reinvent our home office after Alex moves to his new room later this year or early next year (currently the upstairs guest room), so I am really looking forward to seeing your rooms and maybe stealing some of your great ideas!

If you look at Alex's current room, you can see the remnants of our home office in the built-ins that Jim built. The changing table was once our desk with a pencil drawer below, and the drawers to the right are actually file drawers (still are actually). Obviously the bookshelves also lend a lot of function to this room both as a nursery and as an office.

We currently do most of our office work in the kitchen, family room, and dining room. We keep our printer, files, and other office supplies on the dresser that Jim rebuilt last year.

This actually works quite well for us and I wonder how much we would use an actual home office, and I'm not sure I would want to give up our printer on the first floor.

So, if this isn't enough eye candy for you, I wanted to share my friend Colleen's Mom Cave, Willow House headquarters, and craft room. When we last visited them almost a year ago, this was their guest room and now it's this awesome Mom Cave! It's on the second floor of their home outside Atlanta.

 Amazing craft closet

 The window seat - my favorite part!
She bought a lot of the pillows, window seat cushion, and curtains from Etsy and repurposed loads of stuff she already had including a kitchen cart for her Cricut machine and other crafting supplies in the closet. If you have questions, please put them in the comments and hopefully she'll drop in and answer them! Thanks Colleen for letting me share your amazing Mom Cave!

Now, it's your turn! Please link-up any blog post about your home office, craft room, Mom Cave, or other special nook in your home. The post does not need to be new but just needs to feature that room in some way (new table, art, rug, etc.), and your room does not have to be "finished" by any means. Maybe other readers will give you some great ideas!
