Last June I revealed my Craft Room Makeover (wow, I can’t believe it’s been 9 months already). Since I use this room daily alongside my husband as our home office/craft room, today I though I’d give you a peek inside some of the drawer and cabinets to see exactly how I keep everything organized.
My favorite organizational tool in this space is my framed peg boards. I purchased two 2x3ft frames from Michael’s for 40% off then inserted some cheap peg boards from The Home Depot (which they even cut down to size for me). I removed the backing and the glass from the frame and hung on the wall using wall anchors.
This space is great to hang some of the tools I use most: scissors, tape, tape measurers, stencils and more. Plus it’s nice to use some lateral space while creating some functional eye candy.
The 10ft long work desk we built is made up of three cabinets: two single and one double wide. This gave us plenty of drawer and cabinet space, plus two nice workstations so my hubby and I can work at the same time.
On the right side of the desk is where I keep my Silhouette Cameo and paper trimmer. Inside that far right drawer I keep all of the power cords, vinyl, scrapers, and transfer paper.
In the cabinet below is all of my painting supplies… yep, my favorite cabinet in the entire craft room. Lots of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, spray paint, little sample jars, paint brushes, fabric paint, chalkboard paint, milk paint and everything else paint related.
In the double cabinet drawers I keep a lot of my smaller crafting supplies. The drawer on the right actually is my “work in progress” space. Anything that I’ve recently purchased for an upcoming project goes in this drawer so I know exactly where to find it when I’m ready to begin crafting. Once the project is complete, I find a new home for the supplies and the drawer is then filled with my newest stockpile.
The area of my craft room that needs the biggest help right now is the little niche between my window and the closet doors. Right now I have a sewing desk I painted stored over there with some files overhead holding all of my scrapbook paper. I love the hanging files, just need to find out what do to with the space below it (I don’t sew so the desk is kinda pointless).
On top of the sewing desk I have a recycled tray holding some paper cups that I covered in scrapbook paper last year. I store greenery pins, glue sticks for my hot glue gun and craft sticks in them.
On the blank wall near the door I recently hung my necklaces with some DIY Knob Jewelry Holders. Love these.
