I want to share with you one of my favorite rooms in my house. I am fortunate enough to have a spare room that I’ve been able make into my craft room. I was also fortunate enough to have my husband help me with moving in some of the larger furniture and mounting the shelves.
Here’s the view looking into the room. My desk is a small dining room table I got for $20 at Goodwill my freshman year of college. I painted it white about six years ago and it has served me well ever since! The shelves above it were my latest installation, and not at all easy to hang. But, very handy to have. The white cabinet and cubby shelf are both Closetmaid that I picked up from Fred Meyer during seasonal sales. Watch for these sales; you can get them almost half off!
Looking back at the door, you can seem my fuzzy friend, Franklin. My craft room also doubles as his room. This is where he stays while I am at work. Above him is my planning whiteboard that I picked up for free from an office going-out-of business sale. It is where I do all my brainstorming for my Beachbody business. To the left, another free snag, the wire rack I use to hang my various necklaces, bracelets and earrings that I have made.
Below the jewelry display is another cubby shelf that hold all sorts of goodies. From right to left, I have beads, beads, beading supplies, beading books, fly tying books (yep, another hobby) and my camera and supplies. The top has more beading supplies, and the shelves above that, more beading. Did I mention, I love beading?
I LOVE beading! Here is part of my collection. Most of the bead boxes are “borrowed” from my husband or collected from the local fishing stores. So handy and SO much cheaper than buying the same thing from a craft store.
All my running bibs have provided a great wallpaper edge for my office. The patio lights have added some great light to the room!
Another look at the opposite corner. My cabinet is full of my paper crafting supplies, scrapbooking, card making, etc. My other fuzzy child, Butters, is always so helpful when I’m crafting. The cubby shelf on this side of the room has all my knitting supplies and yarn. I have to keep it all inside the soft boxes, because both the cat and dog will eat it. Yarn poo…
The big closet holds all sorts of activities! I’ll admit, it is not the cleanest. It holds my painting and canvases, fly tying supplies, and yet another cubby shelf that holds all my sewing.
I like to keep my thread organized by color. Don’t judge. I like rainbows. The surger in the back was another garage sale steal! The slack hangers make a great fabric organizer.
Okay, back to the other side of the room, and Mr. Franklin. Well, look at that, ANOTHER cubby shelf. Only this one is adorable. My Cricut paper cutter and Cuttlebug live on the top shelf, along with all my crafting dies. The lower shelf is all dedicated to Beachbody, just like the whiteboard. I get to spend many days here on my laptop, with Franklin helping. I also use the desk for beading, fly tying, photography, painting, sewing, knitting, and crafting! Ah, bliss!
