A cozy orange corner seat is the perfect spot for a curious child to create artwork in this room featured in the 2013 Atlanta Decorators' Show House. Globes and painted turtle shells are attached to the wall for inspiration.
Craft projects are a great way to entertain and encourage creativity, but the dining table shouldn't be cluttered with paints and glue sticks. Instead, stock the table with an assortment of colorful beads, leather cording and feathers so the kids can create a necklace or bracelet to wear with their headdress.
Masterpiece Design Group designed a multi-functional wall for this playroom, for displaying games, toys and supplies. In addition, a simple table was designed to provide a place for creating art or eating snacks. Rolled white craft paper stationed on a dowel allows for easy cleanup.
Kids will love creating art and feeling inspired in this crafts room. The large crafts table seats eight, so kids can invite their friends to join in on the fun. Dowels keep wrapping paper and ribbons neatly organized, while drawers and cabinets store all the other art supplies.
This low-ceiling basement space in a 1920s Colonial is now a lively children’s workspace. Artwork—hung from Ikea picture rails and curtain rods with clips—fills the room with vibrant color. In this electronics-free zone, the kids paint, draw and play games at their white craft table.
Yellow hanging lights and bed linens pop against bright blue walls in this contemporary kid's room. In the corner, multicolored chairs surround a small white table perfect for arts and crafts or tea parties.
Instead of purchasing a roll of wrapping paper at the store, bring your kids around the table to make custom hand stamped paper with potatoes and paint. This old school craft project is still a great way to get kids involved in the season of giving.
Give kids a designated surface to draw on with a roll of craft paper spread across the surface of the table. In addition to being able to express themselves creatively, this also gives parents a chance to suggest seating by writing each child's name onto the paper with markers, chalk or crayons.
HGTV's Fixer Upper host Joanna Gaines turned this once bland laundry room into a colorful and inspiring craft room. Two bright yellow light fixtures illuminate a large craft table, made from an old pocket door. New blue-gray cabinets provide plenty of storage for the space, and an attractive sheet metal magnet board is a perfect place to display the kids' artwork.
With multiple work and homework areas, as well as central table for crafts or building projects, the bright and airy home office is designed as a creative workspace for both parents and kids. A rolling library ladder adds an extra level of storage to the space.
For a designated place to work on crafts, draw and color with crayons, a custom play table was made from an old coffee table cut down to size with a saw, sanded, then painted white and green. The child-sized chairs were picked up at a flea market, sanded, painted and decoupaged with vintage maps.
