Stay at home moms wear multiple hats these days. In addition to raising children and keeping the  house running efficiently, many modern moms work from home. Whether they are a blogger, a photographer, a writer or small shop owner, having a space to call their own is a recipe for success!

You may not run a business from home, but you love to craft, scrapbook, sew or DIY and having your own dedicated space is a dream! I'm going to share 23 ideas to inspire you to see how to carve out a working/crafting space in your own home - big or small!

Whether you have an entire room to yourself, or just a corner, these beautifully creative spaces are sure to inspire you and give you ideas that you can incorporate at home!

As you look through these home offices and plan your office or craft space, think about your own goals. What are your needs?

  • Are you looking to maximize space? 
  • Do you need to organize a lot of supplies? 
  • Maybe you need to fit a home office into an existing room and make it efficient without looking "office-y". 
  • Or maybe you want to surround yourself with items that you love, things to inspire you. 

Keep these goals in mind as you look through the following 23 spaces. If you want a closer look, more pictures and details, click on the link included with each space.

Our former home had a tiny dining space that we turned into a functional craft room and home office. Because it was seen from multiple rooms, including the entry way, organization was key!

Postcard From the Ridge
Angie's basement home office started life as a dumping ground (so many of us can relate, right?) Her goal was to make it a light and bright space, filled with inspiration. She cleared the clutter and created a charming space filled with vintage organizing goodies. Now that everything has a place, it's a breeze to maintain!

23. Chic White and Gold Home Office

Sherry's home office started life as an unused dining room filled with mismatched furniture. Uninspiring, it left much to be desired. She repainted or recovered most of the existing furniture to update it, and give it a bright and fresh new look. She added gold stripes to the wall with tape for a chic, modern update.

Whew, that was a lot of home office makeovers!! If you made it to the end, congratulations! I'm thinking you were really needing inspiration and motivation to get started on your own office or craft space redo!

I'd love to know which room was your favorite or one you found most inspiring? These makeovers are proof that you CAN create a home office or craft space even if you don't have a spare bedroom!! And you can absolutely have your own space on a budget! Think outside the box...do you have a basement space? a garage? or even a small space under the stairs that could become the office of your dreams?

I'll be back later this week with some winter decor ideas 😍
