After so many years crafting out of boxes or having a little corner in the garage, I have finally have a craft room! I moved into a new area in my home and I wanted to share it with all of you. Hopefully this post inspires you or gives you ideas of how to store and organize your craft supplies.
Let’s start by an overview of my room:
Most of my furniture is from Ikea (Kallax and Liatorp collection).
The two white storage shelves are from Target. That is where I store the majority of my supplies.
I have been a crafter for about 15 years now, and my supplies seem to have grown quite a bit throughout the years. Yes. I am a craft hoarder. I admit it.
A few months back, I started to feel really overwhelmed – like I did not want to craft anymore because of the messy condition of my room. At that point I decided to put a stop to the situation, and make a little investment to create the room of my dreams.
It was a lot of work to clear the mess. There were times where I felt lost and did not want to continue decluttering or getting rid of my stuff (gasp!). So to get out of my funk, I started cleaning, painting my new space, and eventually buying new furniture. That gave the inspiration to continue. After seeing how nice everything was looking, I finally got the strength to keep only the items that I really needed or I could not live without. That’s when the real work began…
…and little by little everything started to find its home.
Paper was sorted and color coded, stamps and paper pads organized. Inks, markers, and washi tapes found their new home.
I was very lucky to have a closet in this room. This is where I placed the DIY pegboard I framed. I also added shelves to store the supplies I use most often. And even better, since the closet has doors, I can close the doors and keep my messes out of sight at the end of the day.
Then came the fun part: decorating my room. I used items I love: some from the new Heidi Swapp wall decor line and others from Target.
I used a photo ledge shelve to store and display my collection of glitters. It was practical but pretty at the same time.
And I made a feature gallery wall with some cute items.
When the room was completed I finally felt that I had a pretty but functional space. And most importantly, it was a space I felt proud of.
I now plan to use all my supplies and enjoy all these beautiful things that surround me.
And above all have lots of fun.
Thank you so much for reading and I really appreciate all your comments.
