Due to financial circumstances I won’t be getting a craft room anytime soon, but that hasn’t stopped me from pretending I have one. This area is in our unfinished basement and will be my craft room someday. My goal is to be able to fit all my crafting and decorating supplies in this one room with the exception of some bigger pieces of furniture.
My scrapbooking and paper craft supplies are kept in this area, along with hoards of pictures I need to go through.
The wall files hold scraps of solid and patterned papers. I’m going to spray paint them white as soon as it warms up a little here.
Here’s some of my ribbon stash. I used the cropadile to make the holes in the photo boxes for the ribbon to come through. The boxes to the right were purchased from Hobby Lobby about 2 years ago.
I have larger rolls of ribbon on the curtain rods above the storage boxes. The wire basket below the rods hold string.
More crafting supplies, ric rac, and ribbon. The wood box is going to be painted white also.
I labeled all the drawers with my handy dandy label maker. I know where everything is, but the labels sure help hubby or the kids be able to find something if I need them too.
This bookshelf holds supplies for projects, frames, idea binders, and some decorating supplies. I need to cover the magazine holders in paper still. You can see more of the unfinished basement in the background.
The dressers hold mostly fabric, some storage boxes and a few more craft supplies. I want the decorating items to look good while they’re being stored. The shutters and some of the gates aren’t being used right now but they look pretty good just leaning against the wall. It will look much better once there’s actually a wall there.
So that’s half of the room. I have 2 big tables put together as my work surface. I like to spread out, plus there’s plenty of room when I have friends over to craft. The decluttering has helped so much in this area. I even have some half-full drawers now.
What have you been organizing or decluttering lately?
