Now that we’ve got a nice big eat-in kitchen, we’ve decided to forgo a formal dining room and instead make it our office/craft/board game/make a mess room – all piled onto a round table that came with our new house. I’ve always wanted to have a place where I can pull out my sewing machine or start a jigsaw (yes, in my fantasy world I do things like 5000 piece jigsaw puzzles) or the kids can paint and draw and make – and not have to put any of it away until it’s done. Pretty, creative, crafty mess is alright with me. Great example of that below. Love the chairs and the table.

I’ll let you know how it goes. My children (and I) have been known to have 8000 projects on the go at one time, so we’ll see how my creative, crafty mess room works in reality. It’s all very well when you have piles of colourful knitting wool and jars of tulle as above. Let’s be honest, in my world it could quickly turn into this.
