Ok, so if you follow my blog at all you may be familiar with my on going desire to have a functioning craft room. I am sloooowly getting there. Last summer I bought/painted a sewing desk, found a giant bookcase from IKEA and made a rack to hold all of my ribbon and thread. Sounds like I have it all figured out right? Well....
Currently the bunnies and their pen are being housed in my room (the only one with a/c) so its a pretty tight squeeze for everything in there. At least all of my craft supplies have a home. But, the other problem is I have run out of storage for my packaging supplies. I am creating bigger pieces such as dog beds and skateboard dishes and don't have any room to store the boxes I've been collecting to ship them.
So this weekend I got super excited to start designing my very own craft room for next year if we hopefully find a larger place. And while I'm waiting for that day to come I have been keeping myself busy designing my dream craft space. Here is a recap in photos of what I've done so far and my plans for my new room in the future:
This is what I started with at the beginning of last year. It was far from ideal. I did not have enough storage for anything and it all ended up on the floor.
So then I bought this monster shelf from IKEA to house all of my crafts and books. Which is an amazing feat since I have a ridiculous amount of stuff.
I then got this great desk from Brandy and painted it red and added new hardware to match the black shelf. While I was at it I also painted my dresser pictured in the previous photo to match the desk.
I hope you enjoyed my little craft room blog. It will be a while before I get to set it up so hopefully I won't get too antsy!
