Craft Room Ideas

Craft Room Makeover

We moved into this house in February of this year and we never used the office.  I housed all my craft supplies in the closet, and had an old desk, filing cabinet, and office chair in it but that was it. So this year when my husband asked what I wanted for Christmas, I thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to turn the office into a craft room.   I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to share my reveal and put together some helpful craft room ideas.

Here is the room before with a picture of the closet.

Eventually, I would like to do some more garage sale and thrift store shopping and refurbish some furniture to add (that’s why you can’t see the right side of the room…. Ha!), however to start the organization process, IKEA had an explosion in this room.  We bought the shelving and craft table there, as well as the blue metal kitchen cart I used for my sewing machine and fabric. If you look at the first picture above you can see the bar stools I upcycled as well.  Here’s a close up of the kitchen cart.

I loved this table because it had extra storage in the legs.

I also organized the drawers according to materials.

I added wire baskets from the dollar bins at Target for added storage as well.

Craft Room Organization

The DIY colored glass Mason Jars I made were perfect to organize the items I use all the time and made them easily accessible.

I hung a magnetic board on the side of the shelving unit and added little magnets to small plastic bottles to store some notions and small beads.

On the top of my shelving unit, I displayed my white frame, a free curb side score.

I also placed my repurposed spice rack up there…

And I used some glass containers and made some recycled craft jars filled with DIY necessities to display on top (both pretty and useful).

On the unfinished side of the room I hung my craft organization board I made from a free, unwanted, and ugly painting I found.

Lastly, I hung a little inspiration from a Blogger Socal Social I attended.  It was part of my swag bag!  It says, “Your spark can be a flame and change everything” by E.D. Nixon.
