After 10+ years of crafting outta those big tupperware storage boxes, I have my very own craft room!!!!
Granted, one corner will be my hubby's office and we're also trying to fit in a mini-home gym in there, but isn't she a beaut???
It's near the front of the house, so I wanted more of a clean look and not so much a scrapbooking room. Of course, I don't think the paper rack is helping much, haha! So that's why I got those white boxes to make them look more uniform.
The big shelf/ table combo is from Ikea. I like how during the daytime, I could put a chair and face out the window and then be able to switch it to the other side at night (maybe put a TV in there somewhere?).
My favorite parts are the two rolling cabinets in the corner. They fit a lot of paper. Most of my design paper are 12 x 12, and they're perfect for them! I sometimes put together a card or lay-out without actually adhering the elements down. I like how I could just open up one of the cabinets and slide them in to finish later on. In those cabinets, I sort my DP either by brand (Basic Grey, Hambly) or by theme (nature, baby/kids).
The supplies I have the most of are papers and embellishments. I'll get back to the embellies later. Here are the other storage places -- the rolling rack of folders and the paper rack (mostly cardstock). And you see the rectangular light green boxes with the oval windows? Those are where my Studio Calico kits or Taylored Expressions kits go. I don't think I'll be disassembling them anytime soon.
The white bins are labeled but things are just kind of thrown in there. I do like the look of apothecary so if I find nice clear bottles/ vases, I may throw in some of my ribbons or buttons in there.
Here's an example of what it looks like inside... these are my tins full of brads/ eyelets. I also have beads and paperclips.
Not quite done. I'd love to buy another cabinet or shelf for the middle part where the green seats are. In the above pic with Mattie, there's a kiddie table made out of cardboard that I'd love to incorporate so my sons can craft with me. :)
I still need to put up a bulletin board and my inspirational pics too. Maybe a rug and some curtains. And if you noticed the little white shelves hold no Copics.
That's because I put them in these little portable containers and lug them whichever room I'm in (usually the family room or kitchen). I ended up buying the new portable bag at the Copics website, and am very excited to get it!
So there it is... it took my so long to clean and sort stuff out. I'd love to see your craft room too!!!
