I’m so excited to give you a tour of my new craft room! It’s still a work in progress, but I’m so excited I couldn’t wait to show you. This is technically the second time it’s been a craft room but that’s ok. For years it was our homeschool classroom and a craft room. So technically this is the first time it’s been a dedicated craft room and I’m in love! (Insert squeal!)
This room has been just about everything. It was originally the front porch and my husband’s grandmother had it closed in to make a sunroom. So when we moved in 32 years ago that’s what we used it for. It became my space. A hideout just for me!
Then it became a storage room, junk room, and then playroom for the kids. Later on, it became our homeschool classroom/craft room. I loved this room! It was incredible and we made so many precious memories here. Then my youngest daughter wanted a room of her own. So we transformed it into her bedroom.
Now that our oldest two children have moved out, my youngest decided to move into her sister’s room. She needed more space. That’s another post coming soon! But what do we do with that room now? I went through several ideas. It could be a workout room, move my office in there or turn it into a craft room.
I went with the craft room and I’m so glad that I did. It’s bright and sunny with all of the windows which means I can see what I’m doing. The room is bigger than you think which means lots of floor space when I need it. And it’s move-in ready! I just need to make a few touchups here and there.
Here is a list of items I’m using to organize my new craft room:
- 2- 9 cube shelf organizers
- Clear acrylic organizer bins
- 4-foot folding table
- Cardstock organizer
- Drawer Organizers
One thing I really like is the clear acrylic organizer bins. I do lots of different crafts. This means I have a huge variety of supplies. Being able to sort them and see how much I have is a tremendous help. It’s also great because anyone can walk in and find what they’re looking for. At some point, I might label them, but for now, I’m leaving them blank until we decide exactly where everything is going.
I still need to figure out how to organize my ribbons and fabric. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. But this is a great start. I think I’m going to use the cubby that was her closet to hang fabric and maybe add a shelf or two and definitely find a better way to organize my Cricut supplies.
I can not wait to get it finished and share the finished product with you! Mostly I’m just excited to have a place to craft. I’m sure there will be some artwork hanging up and even more organization. Stay tuned and follow the updates on Instagram.
Do you have a craft room? I’d love to see how you organize everything. Please share! Also, if you’d like to check out what I’ve been using, just click on any of the images in the Shop The Post widget below. Or you can go to my LTK shop here or here.
