Craft Room

I'm always surprised and a bit disappointed when I see other people's craft spaces and they are so ordinary and predictable. Maybe they like the matching, clean spaces that always seem to be white on white, but for me I want to be surrounded with things that I've made or found. My craft room is my favorite room so I've cleaned it up to share with you.

The chairs are some old ones that I had. I added grunge letters and painted them. Then added new pads.

I use this old milk crate to keep most of my fabric. Can you tell that I don't sew?

My memo board is an old folding game table that I found in Vegas.

I painted this old dresser and took the legs off to fend off the dust bunnies. I added some vinyl letters to try to add some organizational possibilities. ( it's my little fantasy world...come join me!)

The glass on top of this table creates a perfect space for my rubber stamps. I can't say that I use them more but maybe! I made the table from an old gate and some legs that I got from Ikea. It's my favorite part of the whole room.

My old card catalog holds paints. Some more drawers hold everything else. I love the mason jars because it makes it easy to see what I have. Yes, it looks better when every jar is full...but that's just not 'real'.

The only thing that is actually made for craft storage is this slot board that I got from a scrapping store that was going out of business...sniff...sniff.


  1. I'd love to get crafty in there! LOVE the dresser and all of that organization and work space!

    Have a great weekend! ;)


  2. Those are some awesome chairs. I don't have a craft room, but I can totally see why you enjoy yours!
