The first project is shown to the left, the eight colorful drawers with crystal knobs, are actually just card board boxes that I covered with coordinated scrapbook papers. This set of boxes holds, (2) Craft Paints and brushes, (2) Stamps and pads, (1) sorted junk jewelry flowers (1) unsorted junk jewelry, (1) assorted glitter and (1) vintage card games for altered art.
The other project was filling a three shelf open cupboard with matching coffee style jars from the dollar store. (I found out you can order dollar store stuff on line and have it delivered to your closest store without charge. These bottles were always out of stock in store I checked and rechecked)
Below we start moving through the room from the door way clockwise around the room.
This is the comfy corner. I originally moved the chair out and had open wire scrapbook paper storage in this corner ... it was easier to find the paper I wanted, but the whole room suffered without a hint of comfort so back it came.
The green louvered stand has shelves for standard sized paper and card stock, while the top opens to file folders full of categorized stickers. There is a caddy full of fancy edging scissors on top of it, and a window filled with a much of my rolled ribbon.
I love the little bird cage style CD stand, that now holds plastic containers full of miniatures by category, like 'New York City', 'Utah', 'baby', and 'animals'.
This is a small closet, it is chock full, of more paper, stamps, old wallpaper, stickers, paper lace, etc.
The jewelry bags hanging on the closet await sorting some of that unsorted jewelry that I love for making funky jewelry or adding to embellished antique bottles, etc.
This small pop crate is on the right side wall of the closet and hangs over the side of my desk ... as you can see it holds a lot of my washi tape, and some small jars of tiny stuff too.
This great drop leaf table in the middle of the room is an amazing addition. It is only a foot across when it has the leaves down, but when they are up the table is big enough to serve dinner to 6 people, or allow for major spreading out in case of cutting out patterns, or having a lot of supplies close at hand for a project.
The white table in the first picture is my sewing spot. My sewing machine, with its carry case, is under the table, along with a typewriter, so I can use either of them on the table.
Thanks for coming along on my tour of my little 12 by 14 foot craft space. I have been working on this room for more than two years and frankly it feels great to be done.
My next craft room project is to write down everything in the room in alphabetical order telling where it can be found. Its amazing that I can put something away in the morning, and be unable to remember where I put it by two in the afternoon. I know that my book listing everything and where to find it will be the key to crafting without tears.
If you have a post about your craft room, please leave a link in the comments below. I would love to come and see what you have done. Thanks again.
