Hi everyone! So I realized I have not given a tour of the craft room/office since it was last redone so we’re going to do that today! Here is the blog showing what the craft room looked like right after we moved into our apartment last July: www.thepatternedpaperplate.com/blog/weve-moved
We’ve made some changes since then and I’m here to walk you through them! I’m always trying to make this room more efficient, so it gets changed up pretty often. I’m really happy with it as it is right now!
So when you first walk in and look to the right, we have my husband’s desk. This has not moved, but some décor and shelves were added to the wall to make it look less empty. The fronts of the drawers and doors were also covered in peel-and-stick wallpaper and have had knobs attached to match the other white furniture in the room. His desk is usually where we keep papers before they need to be shredded so it gets a bit messy at times! (I covered up any personal info just in case.) To the left of his desk is another small piece of IKEA furniture that has our printer on top of it.
If you are looking straight in from the door we have my IKEA drawer units that I have had for a long time as well as a new piece that I got from my parents. That piece has also been covered in wallpaper and knobs have been added. This is where the bulk of my craft supplies are kept and it has been working well for me!
I also took the time to label each drawer so that I could remember what was in each one.
To the left when you walk in is a weight rack that we bought for all of our workout equipment. We used to just have all of our weights on the floor, but this looks much nicer and gives everything a place to be.
I also added some sheer curtains to the window. It really made a difference to the room and looks cozier now.
In the far corner near the window we have this white metal bookcase we got from Home Depot. It works great as a place to hold all of our plants as well as some additional craft supplies that don’t fit in the other units such as paper, sanders, big bottles of paint and sealer etc. I also have tubs full of completed crafts over here ready to go for any future craft fairs.
And finally, we have my work desk. This used to be on the other side of the room, but I moved it closer to the window and I love being able to see outside during the day. It is a motorized sit/stand desk and I am really happy with it!
This room serves many purposes, but it is more organized now than it has ever been and I'm really happy with it. What are some tips and tricks you all use in your own crafty spaces? Let me know in the comments below!
