If I could build my own craft room, I would install those tricked-out shelving units that Belle found in Beauty and the Beast. Who wouldn’t love to glide on a ladder from your fabric tape collection to your meticulously color-coordinated paper stacks?
We’re giving you the chance to dream big and design your own virtual studio space. Enter our Pinterest Studio Challenge and create a pinboard that reflects your ideal crafting studio! Do you see yourself out on your front porch, with your paints, brushes, and all of nature at your fingertips? Or would you prefer a multi-story crafter’s pad, each floor dedicated to one kind of hobby?
Whether simple or sumptuous, we want to see what kinds of spaces would launch your creativity through the roof. Pin everything from mural-sized calendars and funky rugs to artistic lamps and innovative organizational systems. Please compose a short paragraph that sums up your creative vision and include it in the description of the board. Comment below with the link to your boards so we can find your dream studio!
The Pinner with the most creative and innovative board will be awarded a $25 gift certificate to The Shoppe to spend on products to help fill up your creative studio, and two runners-up will receive a copy of Where Women Create Summer ’12*. Take a look at our sample pin board to spark your interior decorating vision!
*Contest is open to U.S. residents only. Deadline for entries is July 30, 2012.
Update: Congratulations to Kim Collister! We loved the beautiful colors of both the interior and exterior of your dream studio, and the fun, upcycled ways to store supplies. We will be in contact with you regarding the details of your prize.
