My New Craft Room!

7 Apr

Okay so I have always been in love with a well organized craft room. I have always wanted one and knew when we moved into This Grey House (you see what I did there?) I would wind up getting one. I opted to “share” my craft room with my computer room that is directly off the Master Bedroom. I have plenty of bedrooms but I couldn’t see myself giving up an ENTIRE BEDROOM for a craft room! Maybe if I worked on parties and crafts full-time but just to play around the house and help out friends, I couldn’t give up all that space.

Here is the space before we moved in:

I knew that I could easily rearrange the computer room and find some space in there. Is it a little more compact than it was before? Sure, but I still have tons of room to move around. Does the white craft room clash with the dark computer furniture? Yeah, probably, but it still works.  The best part is that I can be in the same room hanging out with the hubs at night if I need to work on something.

I wasn’t sure what exactly I wanted in my craft room but I know I needed a big working table and storage. I fell in love with a table and paper storage cart from Ikea but that was all I had to work with.

One day, while shopping at Michaels, I came across all of their craft storage and everything was 50% off. As much as I loved everything, I knew I didn’t have much floor space and these units were made to be stacked onto each other, much like cubbies. I brought my hubby back the next day and showed him everything and he mentioned hanging them on the wall. I didn’t that was an option but he knew exactly what was need to make sure those puppies never go anywhere! By that night, we had everything hung up and put in place!

I love my new craft “room”  and couldn’t be any happier with how it turned out.

    Love your finished craft room! The hanging storage is awesome. I’m working on one myself. Well it’s more of a craft space. Such great inspiration. Thanks for sharing!

      Thanks Sam!! I have used it many times already and I love having everything I need in one place. Crafting can be so annoying when you have to go around and gather all your supplies and then put everything back. It’s been nice to have everything right there!
