Hi friends! If you’re new here, Welcome! And welcome everyone to my Craft Room Tour. The regulars around here know that I’ve been busy cleaning up and reorganizing the creative spaces in my house. Specifically, the office/craft room and my basement workshop. But today I want to focus just on my craft room/office.
This craft room used to be my daughter’s bedroom until she got married and moved out. Yep, I’m an empty-nester (well, with one boomerang but hopefully he’ll be gone soon and we can reclaim that bedroom also. 😉 (I think my husband Dan would like to convert that room into an office/fishing gear/biking gear/paddleboarding gear/storage area. In other words: a second floor garage. Whatever. As long as I have my creating spaces he can have it. 😉
Now let’s get on with my Craft Room Tour and maybe you pick up a few organizational ideas for your crafting space.
Since this room isn’t big, I make the most out of every square inch.
I may earn money or products from the companies/products mentioned in this post at no additional cost to you. As always I only recommend products and services that I use and love.
Come on in!
There’s a lot going on in this room but this is what you see as soon as you walk in.
Let’s turn to the left and look back at the door:
You’ll notice more Command Strip Hooks on the back of the door, too. To the right of the door are my paint storage shelves. I started out with just a small one and quickly learned I needed another, bigger craft paint storage shelf! Find out how you can build your own paint storage shelf here and here. Above those paint storage shelves is a shelf made out of salvaged wood and two corbels. Lots of shelves to hold lots of paint!
I told you I make use of every square inch in this room – even behind the door.
To the right of the shelves is my “desk”. This table is actually my very first furniture build. It’s a farmhouse table that works perfectly in this space. A regular desk just would not be big enough for my needs. Over the desk, you can’t help but see the pegboard. The giant pegboard. (Under the desk is where I keep my printer and crafting luggage ; ) I’m preparing to go to a scrapbooking weekend so I’m loading those bags! Here’s how I prepare to go to a weekend crop).
That huge pegboard is such a huge space saver! I think every creative space must have a pegboard.
Now we’re on the other side of the room. Starting in the back corner is my heat press. The heat press is on a heavy-duty cart that I built for just this purpose. Heat presses are heavy and must be on a sturdy surface and this rolling cart is perfect. It also has plenty of storage underneath for vinyl and tee shirts.
Next are the cubbie units. These units hold so much stuff. I have two stacked together on this wall. They hold everything from fabric to office supplies. There is also room on the top for storage baskets. I got these units at Home Depot several years ago but I still think they are still available.
Then we come to the “sewing nook” area. Look at that brightly painted sewing cabinet – I love it! It makes me smile. The drawers in that cabinet plus the drawers in the wooden chest hold lots of sewing supplies like thread, bobbins, elastic, etc.
Then there’s the closet. See, I told you I have hooks on those doors too.
There are two shelving units in there are packed with more crafting supplies. The black shelving unit on the left is from Costco. I don’t remember where the other one came from. It was in this closet when my daughter was still here. Now that I’m thinking about it, I think it came from Costco also.
Let’s take one last look:
I just added those Krusning pendant lights and I love them! You just can’t have enough light in a craft room!
